It is not quite the holiday season for some of these locations, however it is always good to plan ahead especially when it comes to places with a considerable fame of their own or retreats you want to build for yourself! Today’s selection of vacation spots is provocative in that they push us to think beyond what we’ve grown accustomed to in terms of holiday, leisure and comfort; and architecturally, they’re selling us new concepts of living. So, for all of you who are adventurous or want to try something different – enjoy!
