* Bocas Del Toro, Panama.

This archipelago is often sought out by surfers and backpackers and is renowned for its nightlife. It is a bit of a trek to get here because you have either the choice of flying into San Jose, Costa Rica and then taking about a 10-hour shuttle ride there plus another 45-minute boat ride or you can come from Panama city where you also have a 10-hour bus ride plus the 45-minute boat ride to get to the main island.

You can then either stay on the main Island or you can stay on one of the surrounding islands where you'll find lots of Eco-lodges which basically means living completely off the grid with nothing but solar power and rain water. Bocas Del Toro also encompasses some of Central America's largest rainforests. It has nine main islands and 52 k's and tons of little islands full of coral reefs and mangroves that you'll easily see when you use the main mode of transportation which is by water taxi.

You'll find here and if you really want to relive your 20s there is a fantastic event called 'Filthy Friday' sounds classy doesn't it? But it is exactly what it says on the time. It is a bar crawl that happens across three islands and bars on each of those island starts at 11:30 am every single friday and goes until 9 pm. Del Toro is definitely affordable but bear in mind that you are very remote which means that the internet and electricity is not always very stable.

* Lapland, Finland

If seeing the northern lights is on your list as it well should be. There are a ton of places you can go to try and catch this natural phenomenon but it is recommend Finnish Laplands. It's actually labeled as one of the best places to see the northern lights because of the strong winds there it's actually rare to get cloudy days which obviously is going to limit your view. Lapland, Finland one of the best places to see the northern lights.

It is also said to be the home place of "Santa Claus" so it just has that little bit of extra magic to it. The local population is the Sami Tribe and it's incredibly fascinating to learn about their traditions and way of life and their close relationship with the reindeer and the way they use them for basically all aspects of their life. The number of reindeer in the province is actually equal to people and feeding them. 

It is fairly budget-friendly, if you opt to stay in a regular cabin versus those glassy glues that look so magical. Note population is very scarce making it a very remote and romantic place to travel for some time in the snow.

Now this spot is not to be confused with the Dominican Republic and definitely a must do in your lifetime. Dominica has been an independent country since 1978. The currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar and the official language is English, even though you will hear Creole spoken .
