It’s the end of the year, and what a hell of a year it’s been. Endless political turmoil. Terrible news everywhere you turn. It’s hard to tell if 2018 will be the same tumultuous kind of year or if we’re in for a better days. (Knock on wood.)
Even if 2017 wasn’t a total dumpster fire for you, winter is the perfect time to start dreaming of your next getaway. With so many beautiful places just begging to be visited, it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why we turned to the same place we always turn for inspiration: Pinterest.
Pinterest? For travel inspiration? Oh, yes, my friends. Because really, before you dive into itineraries or hotel bookings or flights, first you have to want to go somewhere. And because Pinterest is great for collecting everything you’ve ever wanted to do, from the DIY seat refurbishing project that may or may not happen in this lifetime to the aspirational pasta dinner you swear you’re gonna make, it’s equally good for dreaming about your next getaway.
From Bora Bora to Rome to New Zealand, here are the most popular fantasy destinations for Pinterest-ers of 2017.
