Imagine you could take a week off, a month, or even a year. Where would you go? Traveling agents would probably have many ideas you already heard of and your friends keep on talking about the same places you have all been to together. So before you give up, just know that there are still many magical places that you did not even know existed. Here are 10 landscapes that you will never forget.
