  1. Hordaland, Norway
    Trolltunga, which aptly translates to "Troll's Tongue," is one of many examples of Norway's bizarrely beautiful landscape. The protruding rock sits about 2,300 feet above Lake Ringedalsvatnet, daring travelers to sit on the edge and pose for what is sure to be a profile picture a lifetime. (Photo: Alamy)
  2. Kyoto, Japan
    Kyoto is the elegant, sometimes-moody cousin to modern Tokyo. Visitors there can sample a range of traditionally made sakes, take meditation classes in a Buddhist temple, or check out a museum dedicated to manga. (Photo: Getty)

  4. Seljalandsfoss, Iceland
    Seljalandsfoss (say it three times fast) looks great at any angle, but it's worth the hike to see the waterfall from the cave behind it. Can someone commission an Airbnb property here please? (Photo:Getty)
  5. Mù Cang Chải, Vietnam
    Mù Cang Chải manages to be one of the most breathtaking spots in Vietnam, with terraced rice fields and mountainous landscapes. (Photo: Getty)
  6. Cappadocia, Turkey
    Cappadocia, an area in Turkey where entire cities have been carved into rock, is pretty incredible on its own. But whenever hot-air balloons pepper the sky, its beauty level simply skyrockets. (Photo: Getty)
  7. Provence, France
    The seemingly endless stretches of lavender fields make Provence one of the prettiest (and best-smelling) places in France. (Photo: Alamy)
  8. Hohenzollern Castle in Bisingen, Germany
    Hohenzollern Castle stands proudly over 750 feet above Germany. It's most exceptional on overcast days when it sticks out above the fog—a literal castle on a cloud. (Photo: Alamy)
