    I love your list! Every place is perfect for the occasion! Just to inform you that Santorini is not ideal this season. It is off season, almost all the hotels are closed for renovations, the weather is so cold and there is no people at all, only the workers who do the renovations 🙂

    I was in Switzerland 2 weeks ago, it was breathtaking! I have some posts already up. If I had to choose now, I would go with the Seychelles or Bora Bora. I have never been to a tropical place and I would like to feel the feeling of it!
    Great article 🙂
