Everyone has at least one place they'd absolutely love to visit someday, whether the destination has a historic, ancestral, literary, or simply enjoyable meaning. Traveling anywhere ignites a passion within a person of a desire to see and experience a multitude of cultural aspects. To travel is truly a privilege that everyone should have the opportunity to experience at some point within their lives, and I too hope that I will be lucky enough to travel to several countries and certain destinations someday. These places include some of the destinations that everyone may wish to consider for their own traveling endeavors:

1. Fairy Glen, Isle Of Skye, Scotland

Fairy Glen in the Isle of Skye looks exactly as its name indicates; namely, something straight out of a fairytale. The stark greenery with the gloomy sky and swirling landscape are straight out of a fantasy novel or film and encapsulates all that tourists imagine classic Scottish scenery to be!

2. The Redwood National Park, California

Other than serving for a location for filming of Star Wars and its immense historical background, the Redwood National Park is home to some of the largest trees, fascinating wildlife, and interesting climate (a temperate rainforest!).

3. Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, Finland

This resort has been on my travel bucket list for as long as I can remember. I've always wanted to see the Northern Lights, and this seems like the best way to do it. The cozy igloos contrasting the frigid landscape provide the perfect arctic getaway to see one of nature's most beautiful phenomena!

4. The Crooked Forest, Poland

Do I even need to explain how remarkable this would be to see in person? Look at the trees! Look at the mist surrounding the landscape! This place once again look's straight out of a fairytale (though possibly more as a home for a villain's lair).

5. The Jacobite Steam Train (Glenfinnan Viaduct), Scotland

While this isn't a location necessarily, who wouldn't want to ride on the Hogwarts Express?! It showcases a stunning view of Scotland, plus it provides an opportunity to experience a little bit of magic in reality.

I seem to have a running theme of fairytales-come-to-life on this list of destinations, as Neuschwanstein Castle really takes the cake for fitting the mold as such. Its position high upon and among the trees serve as a lonely yet enchanting place representing the extensive history of the world showing glimpses of the past even within the modern day.

10. Wisteria Tunnel, Japan

Why You Should Go To The Barre

Keep your head high and your heels even higher!

After going back and forth trying to decide if I wanted to try a barre class, last month I finally decided to. And let me tell you, it is one of the best decisions I have made for not only myself but my body! I tried my first class at Barre N9ne in Andover, Massachusetts (with multiple location in Woburn, Somerville, and Danvers), and I truly don't think I could have found a better studio. From the moment you walk into the studio there is a great vibe and the instructors are so informative and caring. If you are in the area, I highly recommend Barre N9ne!

It Is A Full Hour To Yourself

My favorite part of barre is it is an hour to myself. No phone, no distractions, just working to improve myself with each set. When I go to the gym whether I am lifting weights or running on the treadmill at some point I am on my phone responding to a text or changing the song I am listening to. During barre, I don't even think about who texted me or what email I have to respond to. It is complete me time.

The BEST Core Workout

During barre, your core is engaged the entire time. Then, at the end of the workout there is 5-7 minutes of actual core workouts. This makes it one of the best core workouts because instead of just focusing on your core for a few minutes, you are engaging it throughout the class and then additionally at the end.

You Will Gain Strength and Definition 

A typical barre class is a full body workout and over time you will gain strength and see definition. It takes about 5 classes to start seeing results. By strengthening each muscle group, you are not only gaining definition you are also strengthening all muscles (even the ones that are often underused and underdeveloped).

You Will Become More Flexible 

After each muscle group worked on, you will stretch. This is something that is often overlooked because people don't want to take the time to stretch during a workout and save it until the end, or even not at all. The amount of stretching done in a barre class will improve your range of motion and help to reduce any risk of injuries.

Mind Body Connection

During class you will often hear your instructor say to "focus on the mind body connection". But, what is it? Well, when you focus your attention on the muscle you are working, you tend to work harder and more effectively. This then gives you faster results. When you then focus on that muscle group and stop focusing on all the background noise of your stressful day, or what you have to do after class, or that big test next week, you are really able to focus in and have the best workout.

Your Muscles Will Shake (In A Good Way)

Barre utilizes micro movements. Meaning, since you preform many reps of the same movement involving specific muscles in barre, you are then working your muscles to exhaustion. When your muscles are exhausted, they start to shake. If you aren't shaking, work harder!

Through every pulse, squeeze, and tuck enjoy your time during barre. I hope you give barre classes a try because I know I don't regret it and I know you won't either.
