When it comes to picking your next vacation spot, it can be hard to narrow it down to a single location, which is a problem that world travel, artist, and innovator Discollins is all too familiar with. Whether you travel for art, nature, food, culture, architecture, or a mix of all the above, we are sure there is something on this list courtesy of Discollins, specifically for you.
The first stop on our list is Tangier, Morocco. Discollins states that there is a side of Morocco less traveled, the north-west tip of the country that has long been overshadowed by the mysterious imperial cities of Fez and Marrakesh. The busy port city of Tangier is located at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar. This historical bustling city has a rich history with dozens of things to do. One of the most popular locations just outside of Tangier is the beautiful Cap Spartel and the Caves of Hercules. Tangier’s Medina (old walled city) is a lively place, its alleyways are filled with shops, tea houses, and brothels, so you are sure to not run out of things to do.
Santorini & Mykonos, Greece
Greece itself is a culture filled with many years of history. Celebrated by stories of Greek mythology, Greece has maintained its popularity as a tourist destination over the years. With tourism growing each year that passes, Greece becomes more and more popular due to the natural beauty that resides there. Santorini and Mykonos are both equally beautiful islands to travel to. Discollins recommends if time permits,that people take the opportunity to visit both magical places. The beaches are in Santorini are filled with gorgeous pebble beaches, while Mykonos have several sandy beaches, with beautiful turquoise waters. Whichever you end up choosing, both would be incredible.

The city of Kyoto is in the heart of Japan. It has over 4,000 historical monuments for tourists to see. It attracts millions and millions of visitors each year. Discollins says that Kyoto is one of the most authentic places to visit. From the cultural food experience to their costumes and dances, it is a hub for any artist to gain inspiration. Discollins loves the idea of gaining inspiration from the places he travels; it helps to keep ideas fresh and constantly evolving yourself as an individual and artist. The Kinkakuji Temple would be one of the places to visit; from its architecture to beauty, it is all- round a representation of the Japanese culture.
