Visit these little-known travel destinations before they get too popular

In the post-Covid era, many people have planned and booked the trip of a life time because if the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that life is too short.

Everyone dreams of a US road trip, a month exploring south east Asia, bathing in the blue Lagoon in Iceland or interrailing across Europe.

And if you’re already thinking ahead and looking for a breath-taking trip for 2023, why not go somewhere a little different?

Stasher has scoured the Globe for off-the-beaten-path holiday destinations. Here are the top seven countries you won’t want to miss out on when planning your next big trip abroad:

Albania – for wild European scenery
A true enigma of southern Europe, Albania is a hidden treasure trove of history and cultural splendour. If you love Croatia but not it’s price tag, Albania could be the one for you.

Sites such as Rozafa Castle showcase expansive monuments from the past.

Perched high on a hill overlooking two rivers, the castle was originally a stronghold for the Illyrians, an Indo-European tribe from Ancient times.

The nearby Albanian Alps offer keen hikers a challenge, with mountainous terrain sure to keep any active traveller on their toes.
