11. Huacachina, Peruvian desert
With a population of just over 100 people, Huacchina is a tiny village in the Peruvian desert. Fortunately they don’t have to worry too much about water as the village is built round an oasis in the otherwise completely dry desert environment.
12. Cappadocia, Turkey
What better way to see the barren, moon-like landscape of Cappadocia (a historical region of Central Anatolia) than by hot air balloon. Fortunately, as you will see from the picture above there are plenty of them around.
13. Hallstatt, Austria
This medieval village in Austria is home to under 1,000 people. The mountains of Hallstat have some of the oldest mines in the world, dating back to prehistoric times. Visitors to Hallstat are welcome to explore the mines.
14. Leptis Magna, Tripoli, Libya
Leptis Magna in Tripoli was once a major city of the Roman Empire. Adventurous souls can explore the ruins and experience the architecture of ancient Rome without the crowds of Rome itself.
15. The Alcázar of Segovia, Spain
You would be forgiven for thinking this was a still from a live action version of Disney’s Frozen, but this stunning castle is actually a stone fortification situated in the old part of the city of Segovia in Spain. What an enchanting scene.
