I love discovering destinations that have flown completely below my radar. This year, that was Poland. I spent seven days with the country's tourism board visiting cities, sights and landmarks I'd never heard of (and never seen on Instagram) ... and it was a complete breathe of fresh air. In just one week, we visited five cities - barely scratching the surface of the country, but enough to leave wanting more.

Havasupai has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember, and this summer I finally crossed the bucket list destination off my list. Located just a few hours driving from Las Vegas and Phoenix, it's hard to believe that one of the world's prettiest waterfalls sits tucked away so close to Sin City. For years, I've traveled to remote parts of the globe chasing waterfalls, when all this time Havasupai's oasis has been just one state away. And for those of you that have not heard of Havasupai, there's good reason. The hike is strictly permitted, making access extremely difficult, and the destination itself a bit of a mystery for so many people. I did a ton of research...

For me, LA is an Instagram paradise. For many reasons. It's a quick, cheap flight. I don't have to leave the country. The weather is almost always warm and sunny. Most of the city's prettiest photo locations are FREE. And, most importantly, I love the variety of sights and locations that can be squeezed into a quick visit. I was in LA earlier this month for just a couple of days, and I was amazed at how much I packed into my itinerary with just 48 hours in town - beaches, murals, hotel pools, art installations, views and even a hike!

Six years ago I traveled to East Africa to tick Uganda off my bucket list. I spent two weeks in the most remote corners of the country, embarking on epic hikes to see gorillas, chimpanzees and several monkey species in the wild. To this day, it remains one of my all-time favorite travels. And for years I've been dreaming about making it back to this part of Africa. This summer I was lucky enough to spend a week in both Kenya and Tanzania, and while neither come close to the magic that is Uganda, it was amazing to experience safari life in The Serengeti. Below is a photo diary from my adventures - seven safaris, two markets and nearly 40 hours of driving in seven days. Quite the whirlwind...

I've put together a South Korea guide to all the best spots for Instagram photos. Most of the locations are in Seoul, but there are also a few off-the-beaten-path gems tucked away in the southern part of the country. South Korea really has it all - tea plantations, cute cafes, Seoul rooftop views, colorful murals, libraries, iconic temples, etc. And it's one of the safest placed I've traveled to - that always makes taking photos so much easier.
