Petra is the ancient city in Jordan that was lost and forgotten for centuries. Rediscovered by an explorer in the 1800’s, this “Rose-red city” was created by the ancient Nabataeans, who controlled trade in Arabia thousands of years ago. Today, travelers can visit this ancient lost city and its mystical ruins. The highlight of any trip to Petra is its “Petra by Night” experience. This experience occurs three nights a week, where travelers can enjoy a magical candlelit experience at the famed Treasury of Petra.

When people think of Grecian paradise, they often think of Santorini and Mykonos. While these islands are magical, Greece’s largest island of Crete is one of the most heavenly islands of all. Indulge in Cretan wine, explore miles upon miles of unspoiled beaches, and enjoy adventure on its mountainous terrain. Or if you’re just looking for fun in the sun, dive on in to infinity pools that hug the Aegean Sea.
