4. The Grand Canyon, Arizona

Whether you’re into geology or just want to photo something iconic, you can’t go wrong with a quick trip to the Grand Canyon. There’s more to it than taking pics at the lookout posts, too. You can book guided tours and learn about its history.

5. Los Cabos, Mexico

Looking to splurge this summer? A week or weekend at Los Cabos will definitely give you a summer to remember. Head over to Land’s End for stunning rock formation and ocean views.

6. Seychelles

With its pristine white sands and turquoise waters, no wonder it’s a popular honeymoon destination. It can also be a great place to spend a chill summer getaway. It’s all practically Instagrammable, but if you really want the best spot, make sure you add Anse Lazio Beach to your itinerary.

This small country almost always has perfect weather. It’s also not too big that you’ll miss out on memorable tourist destinations. For really out of this world pics, make sure you head to the Supertrees at Garden’s By the Bay.

8. South Island, New Zealand

These days of June are running by in the highest high track speed and I’m trying to let myself breathe and label what I’m feeling in between. Breaths between work, evenings spent on concerts, trips with new beautiful faces, family and the trickiest one of them all: on my very own. Soon I’m off on two adventures I never thought I’d experience this year, and as I’m scared to my teeth I’m also excited. The biggest lesson this year is to put the past in the past, trust the unknown and let myself evolve naturally & organically. Taking care of yourself is a practice, but also the most exciting one, and I’m finally starting to realize that. Between mountain tops, cold water surfs, late night dances where the sun never sleeps, valleys, climbing sessions, coffee making and time spent in the nature I now call my second home, I’ll let myself evolve into whatever’s meant to happen (moment from the NZ road with the cooking pro @moaraud ) #35mm 🌿

For a really epic summer, why not book a trip to New Zealand and live like characters from Lord of the Rings. It’s full of natural wonders, you’ll feel like you’re in Middle Earth, too! The Church of the Good Shepherd’s sky is so dark, you’ll feel like you’re walking under the stars.

9. The Adaman Islands

Want to unwind, unplug, and maybe even go off the grid? A trip to Indian territory Adaman Islands may be up your alley. Want to take cute swimsuit pics during your trip? Go to Radhanagar, it was once hailed ‘Asia’s Best Beach’ by Time Magazine!

10. Brisbane, Australia

The land down under is definitely a top summer destination, with tourist spots, a world-renowned chill vibe, and awesome beaches. For something truly Instagrammable, head over to Kangaroo Point Cliffs for a view of the city’s skyline.

11. The Grenadines

A list of summer destinations won’t be complete without a mention to the Carribean Islands. The Grenadines is an island chain in St. Vincent. The Tobago Cays Marine Park is a particularly beautiful spot to photograph.

What are you waiting for? Book those flights and pack your bags. It’s the season for vacation! Don’t forget the sunscreen!
