Whoever said Bigger is Better had never been to Slovenia – it may be bite-sized but it’s got supersized coolness and nature.

No one does nature vs culture better than Slovenia. Where else would you go to see the coolest castles spiking out of the lushest forests, a very suave palette of white, green and autumn browns?

Slovenia is the place to see baroque (super fancy and old) houses in Ljubljana, take a ghost train through the Postojna Cave, or float your way to the centre of a historic town situated in the middle of Lake Bled (which sounds like it should be blood-coloured but is actually pearly blue).

Tourists aren’t flocking here, well at least, not yet. So make it over quick smart before word catches on. 

Travel to India and Nepal from $68 a day

A trip through India or Nepal with Geckos could see you riding camels in the desert, navigating the streets of Delhi in a tuk tuk or summiting Everest Base Camp. And with trips starting at just $68 a day, you may just have some spending money at the end of it.
