If a little bit of culture shock mixed with plenty of adventure is your style, then look no further than Morocco. This north African country delivers with gorgeous historic cities, access to the Sahara Desert, rugged mountain ranges, and beaches for relaxing along the Mediterranean Sea.

Slovenia is cruising under the radar of most North American tourists...for now. This small Slavic country has a strong connection to both Germanic and Italian culture. Explore the beautiful capital of Ljubljana, the small mountainside villages in the Alps, and the town-squares in the coastal town of Piran.

Myanmar is relatively new to the tourism scene, opening its borders to international tourists in 1996. This remote corner of Southeast Asia isn't the easiest to get to, but a visit is worth the effort. Explore ancient temples, practically untouched landscapes, and meet the welcoming locals that the area is known for.

Guatemala is one of the most enchanting countries in Central America. From the colorful villages to the line of volcanoes that make up the southern part of the country, Guatemala is for adventurers and romantics alike. Explore the big attractions, like Lake Atitlán, but be sure to jump off-the-beaten-path, too.

Bali is the current darling of Indonesia, and for a good reason. The island nation is chock full of idyllic beaches, forested volcanic mountains, great food, and a kind of natural beauty that must be seen to be believed.
