Jet off to a permanent tropical paradise
What better way to make your travel comeback than relocating to your very own tropical paradise? Caribbean islands Antigua and Barbuda are offering you the chance to become a citizen through its Citizenship by Investment Programme, meaning you can spend every day on vacation while still keeping the day job.
The beautiful twin islands are home to stunning wildlife and swashbuckling jungle adventures, plus 365 beaches – one for every day of the year!

Camp out in the country’s most spectacular state
From kayaking along the mighty Colorado River to skiing down Aspen’s world-famous slopes, it’s no surprise the home of the Rocky Mountains was crowned as the Best U.S. State for Adventure by Hemispheres readers last year. Indeed, few places are as adept at keeping outdoor enthusiasts on their toes as Colorado. If you’re looking to push the envelope even further, stop by the Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve for a spot of sandboarding or camp out in the clouds 11,000 feet above sea level in the Mount Sneffels Wilderness.
