On the Åland Islands, the sea is never far away. They boast 17,000 km of shoreline, a pleasant maritime climate and the highest number of sunshine hours in Scandinavia. Experience the charm of this island country, the red granite cliffs, nature and tranquillity.

Atlantic Beach, North Carolina

Pampas grass lines the dunes that border the small town of Atlantic Beach, North Carolina. The tufts of their leaves, fluffy and swaying with the breezes sweeping from the Atlantic Ocean, seem to mimic the fluffy clouds that sweep overhead in the blue skies. Since the 1920s vacationers have penciled in Atlantic Beach for weekend getaways and summer trips. Perhaps this is because of the town’s pristine sands and seaside activities, or maybe it’s because nothing beats dinner and an ocean view sunset. Either way, the Beach is calling.

Cave Creek, Arizona

Cave Creek, Arizona is an archeologist’s dream. Myriads of Hopi Indian tribal artifacts line the mountainsides and stone formations, and the flora is entirely unique to the region. Naturally, Cave Creek shares the abundant sunshine and divine landscape of greater Arizona, which consequently draws countless visitors each year to its location. Unlike nearby Phoenix, Cave Creek is relatively secluded from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan. Therefore the lifestyle is entirely Western, with rural development, open trails, spaces and wildlife habitats, and overwhelmingly fantastic views.

All around, there is a quiet atmosphere, and the untouched nature helps you to lean back and relax while explorers appreciate Friedrichshafen’s undisputed position as the birthplace of the Zeppelin. Come and discover a variety of leisure facilities, the wealth of cultural attractions and the exciting aviation history. Enjoy the Swabian cosiness associated with urban flair, having the chance to cross borders to Switzerland in less than an hour.

Paris

Few cities can match the kind of iconic status that Paris boasts in the imagination of travellers the world over. In fashion, gastronomy, the arts, she is queen. As you visit the different 'quartiers' of the City of Lights her moods shift from gritty to sophisticated, Haute Couture to punk. Paris is a true metropolis and there is always something new to discover beyond the legendary sights and museums we all know so well. This fabled city has a way of getting under your skin and feeling instantly familiar to all who wander her hypnotic streets and linger at her inviting cafes.

Quebec City

It all started in 1535, when Jacques Cartier landed here, and the first trading port was created in what is now Quebec. Since, the city had become its Province's capital and a destination popular for its sights, architecture and food. Visit the famous Chateau Frontenac, the world's most photographed hotel, or one of the other 36 national historic sites, each a sight to behold in its own right. But walking through the Old Port or the Plains of Abraham is perhaps the best way to feel and breathe in the historical atmosphere of the city.
Paris, France

Centre Pompidou

The Centre George Pompidou is a vast postmodern and high-tech architectural space that hosts the Musée National d'Art Moderne (the largest modern art museum in Europe), as well as a large public library and a centre for music and acoustic research. Its construction was controversial, as it was necessary to demolish the emblematic market that stood at that location at Les Halles, and it was initially despised by many Parisians for its unusual architectural aesthetic, which many thought clashed with the city's classical and sophisticated style.
