Hold onto your sunhats and charge your smartphones, because we’re about to embark on a journey that’s cooler than a polar bear’s pyjamas. In 2023, we’re skipping the ordinary and diving headfirst into the extraordinary.

Whether you’re a beach bum, a culture vulture, a foodie, or just someone with a thirst for life’s finer things, this list is your VIP ticket to the trendiest destinations the world has to offer. So, grab your metaphorical shades, you dapper Dan, and let’s kick off this fabulous adventure in the radiant realm of Mallorca.

1. Mallorca – The Bling of the Balearics

Crystal water bay in Mallorca, Spain.

Our jet-setter’s escapade begins on the dazzling shores of Mallorca, where the Mediterranean Sea shows off its A-game. Mallorca, part of Spain’s Balearic Islands, is the epitome of “old meets new” without breaking a sweat.

Picture this: you’re wandering through the maze-like streets of Palma de Mallorca’s Old Town. These streets are so ancient they could give Indiana Jones a run for his whip-wielding money. Amidst this historical wonderland, you’ll find chic boutiques and quaint cafes hiding in buildings older than your aunt’s infamous fruitcake. And don’t even get us started on La Seu, Mallorca’s Gothic cathedral, which stands tall, giving the Mediterranean a run for its money in the “beauty” department.

But it’s not all about architecture and cobblestone streets. Mallorca serves up beaches like a master chef in a Michelin-starred restaurant. From the Insta-famous Es Trenc, with its ivory sands and water that’s clearer than your grandma’s conscience, to the secret coves of Cala Varques, this island’s beaches make all other beaches feel like they’re just playing in the sandbox. And when you’re in the mood for a tipple, beach clubs and bars are scattered like breadcrumbs throughout the island.

Quick Tip: Begin your Mallorca extravaganza with a smooth airport transfer booked through AtoB airport taxi service ( It’s like getting a ride in a limo, minus the stretchy part.

2. Tokyo – Tradition Wrapped in Neon Lights

From the Mediterranean to the neon-drenched wonderland of Tokyo, where tradition and trendiness do the tango like nobody’s watching. Tokyo is like that eccentric artist you meet at a party; it’s utterly unique and impossible to forget.

Your Tokyo journey using airport taxi kicks off at Shibuya Crossing, where pedestrians create a mesmerizing choreography of chaos. Trust us; it’s like watching a well-orchestrated flash mob with a few extra thousand members. Then, head to Harajuku for a fashion experience that’s wilder than a raccoon on roller skates. Meiji Shrine offers a serene escape from the chaos, a place where Zen masters would feel right at home.

Now, let’s talk food, shall we? Tokyo is a foodie’s paradise, where even a humble bowl of ramen becomes a work of art. From Michelin-starred sushi joints that make fish feel like celebrities to kaitenzushi, where sushi comes to you on a conveyor belt, dining here is an experience that’ll make your taste buds write poetry.

Culture vultures, fear not! Asakusa’s Senso-ji Temple and the Imperial Palace are there to quench your thirst for history. And don’t forget Akihabara, the promised land for all things electronic and anime. You might even find yourself singing “I want to be the very best” under your breath.

3. Marrakech – Where Spice Meets Spiffy

Now, let’s jet off to Marrakech, where exotic charm and modern luxury hold hands and skip through the spice-scented souks. Tucked away in Morocco, Marrakech is like the colorful scarf that suddenly ties your outfit together—it’s vibrant, eye-catching, and a bit of a show-stealer.

Start your journey at Bahia Palace, a place so opulent that even Louis XIV would’ve said, “That’s a bit much.” Then, get lost in the medina’s maze-like streets, where treasures like handwoven carpets, intricate ceramics, and spices that smell like heaven are waiting to be discovered. And don’t even think about missing the Jardin Majorelle, a botanical garden so Instagrammable it practically comes with its own filter.

Marrakech is also a culinary fiesta. From tagine and couscous to pastilla, each dish is like a symphony of flavors that’ll make your taste buds applaud. Dining here is so delightful that you’ll want to propose to your waiter.

4. Santorini – The Aegean Daydream

Our next stop is Santorini, the Greek island that’s so photogenic, it probably has its own PR team. This Cycladic gem is like the James Bond of islands—stylish, suave, and impossible to resist.

Book an AtoB airport transfer and begin your Santorini adventure in Oia, where the sunsets are so breathtaking that even the sun sets a reminder to watch them. Then, hit the volcanic black sand beaches of Kamari and Perissa, where you can feel like an extra in a music video.

History buffs, don’t miss the ancient city of Akrotiri. It’s often called the “Minoan Pompeii,” and it’s the closest you’ll get to time travel without a DeLorean. Now, let’s talk food. Fresh seafood, creamy fava, and local wines create a symphony of flavors that’ll have you humming with every bite. Don’t even think about skipping melitinia, a sweet cheese-filled pastry that’s so good, it’s practically a crime.

5. Tulum – The Beachy Bohemian Paradise

Our final destination is Tulum, a place where bohemian vibes meet beachside bliss on the Mexican Caribbean coast. Tulum is so laid-back that even sloths would say, “Dude, chill.”

Kick things off with a dose of history at the ancient Mayan ruins, perched dramatically on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean. Then, hire an AtoB airport taxi and hit the pristine beaches, where swaying palm trees and rustic beachfront hideaways create an ambiance that’s as mellow as a saxophone solo on a Sunday morning.

For adventure seekers, the cenotes are your playground. These underwater sinkholes are like Mother Nature’s secret swimming pools, and they’re waiting for you to take the plunge. Tulum is also a wellness oasis. Yoga retreats, eco-friendly resorts, and holistic spa treatments will have you feeling so zen that you’ll probably levitate.

And when it comes to dining, fresh ceviche, tacos, and margaritas at beachfront eateries are the order of the day. It’s like a culinary symphony performed by a mariachi band on a yacht.

Carter is self-described as thirty-three-and-a-half years old and his thirty-three-and-a-half years birthday is always on March 3. Carter characteristically avoids pronouns, referring to himself in the third person (e.g. "Carter has a question" rather than, "I have a question"). One day [in 1984], Carter, raised himself up and from that day forward we could all read what Carter writes.
