Imagine yourself on a quiet beach, a calm settling over you as the sea breeze flips through your hair as you dive into a good book and a fruity drink. Or perhaps you’re on a hike deep in the woods – the sound of chirping birds drowning out stressful workweek thoughts.

If this is starting to sound a lot like your lunch-time daydream, it may be time to start planning a vacation. If you’ve already started planning one from the tips in our sexy getaways article, then great! However if you need some more inspiration to spark your inner wanderlust Dr. Pepper Schwartz, our Love & Relationship Expert has compiled some of her favorite getaway’s for us:
