Peo­ple who have al­ready ex­pe­ri­enced italy’s charms are seek­ing to dis­cover new ar­eas. an ex­hil­a­rat­ing way to ex­plore amalfi’s coast­line is by car. Fly into naples, head for amalfi and ravello, then fit in salerno be­fore de­part­ing. it's the trop­i­cal-get­away fan­tasy re­alised: idyl­lic la­goons, coral reefs, and in­sta­gram-ready over­wa­ter bun­ga­lows perched above it all. French Poly­ne­sia is an eter­nally com­pelling des­ti­na­tion for ro­mance. Plan your sa­fari for the best des­ti­na­tion and time of year to spot ele­phants, lions, Cape buf­falo, leop­ards and rhi­nos. and don’t for­get your mem­ory cards! the best place to see the aurora bo­re­alis is from north­ern lat­i­tudes near the arc­tic Cir­cle and north Pole. the best time to go: late au­gust through march. Pre­pare to swim with sea tur­tles and colour­ful fish, play with sea lions and ob­serve pen­guins. there’s nowhere else in the world where you can in­ter­act with wildlife in such a per­sonal way. tak­ing to the high seas for a few months at a time is a great way to see a va­ri­ety of ex­otic global des­ti­na­tions. avoid a com­mon mis­take and don’t over­pack; there’s a laun­dry ser­vice avail­able. For this am­bi­tious quest, the key is to craft a cus­tom itin­er­ary be­fore­hand that suits the sched­ule, pace and des­ti­na­tion wish­list. if you haven’t been to these two is­lands, go: tas­ma­nia for its stun­ning scenery, and Kan­ga­roo is­land for its wildlife. De­mand from up­scale trav­ellers want­ing to con­nect with their fam­i­lies away from home con­tin­ues to surge and there are now plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties, suites and vil­las to cater to this de­sire around the world.
