Need a break? A break real. Not a pretend one, where you’re still connected to everyone and everything back home. Whether you prefer a quiet city, the edge of the desert, the top of a crater, or a remote island, here are four places to which you should consider escaping . . . immediately.
Grodno: Find a small city—with a medieval fortress, lots of churches, and few tourists—along the Neman River in Belarus.
Dana Biosphere Reserve: See ancient ruins, old mines, Bedouin encampments, and breathtaking scenery while hiking through Jordan’s largest nature reserve.
Mitzpe Ramon: Enjoy fresh air, gorgeous views, and farm-fresh meals at the edge of Israel’s largest national park.
Saint Peter Parish: Explore rocky cliffs, ever-expanding beaches, and undisturbed snorkeling spots near an active volcano on the Caribbean’s Emerald Isle.
