5 Vacation Destinations You Never Thought Of
https://www.pexels.com/photo/adult-book-business-cactus-297755/

Have you ever met anybody who seems to have been to every corner of the Earth and has countless stories from their lifetime of traveling? If you haven't, I can assure you it is one of the most intimidating conversations you'll ever have. Exploring the world is a basic goal that should be at the top of everyone's bucket list because not only does it provide you with amazing experiences, but it allows you to meet new people and grow and reflect as an individual. Here are a few of the destinations that I believe do just that.

1. Mygatt-Moore Quarry, Colorado

Everyone is fascinated by dinosaurs as kids, but very few people retain this interest into adulthood. If you are one of these people, then this trip is for you. The Mygatt-Moore Quarry is a paleontologist's wonderland, as it's rich with fossils and ready for exploration. On your trip here, you'll also be able to explore the sand dunes of Western Colorado and visit isolated hot springs with unique views. This isn't the vacation you thought you would take, but it's the one that you need.

2. Edinburgh Castle, Scotland

When people think of European trips, they often think of backpacking through Germany while drinking beer or sitting beneath the Eiffel tower eating pasta, but there's so much more to Europe than that. One of the most unique experiences that Europe has to offer is a peek into the clans and history of Scotland, not to mention its beautiful castle or the greenest scenery you've ever laid eyes on.

3. Punakha, Bhutan

When I think old temples, I either think of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" or of my homeland (India), but Bhutan sports some of the most beautiful mountain top temples and lakeside palaces in the world. If you're looking for a true, beautiful spiritual learning experience (or you just need a break from living at sea level), I would strongly consider this trip. It is sure to be the vacation of your lifetime.

4. Malakwa, Canada

I bet you NEVER thought you could take a fun vacation to Canada! Well lucky for you, Malakwa is home to British Columbia's enchanted forest, one of the most beautiful wooded areas in North America. The forest also sports over 350 fairy folk figurines alongside 800 year old cedars. This is one of the many trips that you can't just talk about-- you have to experience it yourself.

5. Lake Hillier, Australia

Yeah there's thousands of lakes across all the continents, but there's only one that's pink. Lake Hillier is a surprisingly unknown vacation destination in Australia, and the water's pink hue seems to defy any scientific exploration. If you're looking for something to post on your snapchat only for people to swipe up and ask "where is this????????" then this is the destination for you.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

12938

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
