Cote d’Ivoire

Though in a region of Western Africa that has been the subject of serious travel warnings for years, the country of Cote d’Ivoire has become known as one of Africa’s great success stories, with a stable government and growing economy. With beach resorts, lush rainforest and a European flavor left over from its French colonial past, Cote d’Ivoire is a largely undiscovered tourist destination to rival the most frequented Caribbean islands.

Armenia

Churches to rival Italy’s, historic sites as impressive as those in Greece, mountains to rival the Swiss Alps, and all at a fraction of the price—and with a fraction of the crowds. Armenia’s mountainous landscape is dotted with crystalline lakes which are in turn surrounded by awe-inspiring cathedrals, monasteries and temples.

The Armenian people are proud of their rich history and culture, marked by intense conflict and remembered with intense passion. And after a single visit, it’s a passion you’re sure to share for the country as a whole.
