During the recession, travel numbers flatlined. Many people waited to see what the economy was going to do before making travel plans. However, we will reveal what luxury destinations the other half are visiting in 2018
A popular destination for 2018 is Vancouver. Vancouver is home the world famous Capilano Suspension Bridge.

It has been replaced many times since then, but the history and natural rain forest is thrilling. Vancouver has 18 luxury resort hotels that are rated five stars or more.
The is no more beautiful place in the world than Umbria. Located in central Italy, the area has panoramic views of rolling hills, abundant with lush forests, beautiful mountains, and thin valleys.

While you are sure to soak in the local culture and learn of the diverse history of the region, you must experience the local folklore festivals. We encourage you to do your own research. However, we will mention some that we find most interesting.
This three-day festival begins on the first Tuesday in May. This festival reflects the Assassin’s custom. In ancient times ladies and knights sang love serenades. The alleys are decorated with flowers, flags, and torches. The “Neighborhoods” in history challenged each other in a flag-waving contests and crossbow contests.
Travel to the town of Cascia for an authentic and traditional Luminaria in remembrance of St. Rita. You will see thousands of torches along the streets, in fields, along the Corno River, and on buildings. This procession is in honor of the Saint’s life, and the route is where the traditional blessing of the roses takes place. This festival happens annually on May 21st and 22nd.
