15 magical places almost nobody knows about, but everyone should see

I’ve always liked discovering and exploring new places.

I get a buzz from jumping in a car early on a Saturday morning, armed only with a map and a packed lunch, finding a deserted place and simply enjoying the view.

Of course, it’s even better to explore places outside your own country’s borders.

Here’s a list of 15 places almost nobody knows about. Don’t let that put you off though – they’re places you should definitely aim to visit during your lifetime.

My personal favourite is number 9 … magical.
