The Best Places to Travel in 2015

As we make our 2015 New Year's Resolutions, one thing has become clear - we love to travel! And with help from our friends at the Huffington Post, we have compiled our list of 6 great places to explore this year. Choose your favorite and start making plans - because there is no better way to learn about the world than to experience it. 

1. Colombia

Colombia is a land of great beauty: its snow-covered volcanoes, tropical beaches, deserts and grasslands make it one of the most geographically diverse countries in Latin America. As descendants of indigenous groups, Africans and European settlers, Colombians themselves are just as diverse, with a unique history and rich cultural heritage.

2. Mozambique

This costal nation in southern Africa is home to beautiful natural landscapes, including the celebrated Lake Malawi which is featured as a UNESCO World Heritage site. There are also many great islands to explore off the coast of Mozambique. 

3. India

India is a country that can’t be explained—it must be experienced. As the seventh largest country in the world with several hundred languages, India is dozens of countries in one. A walk down the street is a feast for your senses: the noisy traffic, the aroma of street food, the cries of vendors, the bright colors of saris and storefronts. It’s a kind of joyful chaos you won’t find anywhere else.

4. Malawi

Malawi is a beautiful country in southern Africa, boasting incredible natural landscapes. Visit Lake Malawi, take a safari and meet friendly people in local towns. Malawi is a hidden gem - and a country you don't want to miss! 

5. Rwanda

Known as “the land of a thousand hills,” Rwanda is located in the heart of Africa and is home to spectacular volcanoes, blue lakes, tropical forests and rolling green hills. After the 1994 genocide left over one million people dead and countless exiled, the people of Rwanda began picking up the pieces of their broken nation, returning to their fields and businesses and working to support their families. Today, Rwanda is a leader in East Africa and a don't-miss travel destination.
