So say au revoir! to marriage and bonjourno! to the newest version of yourself. You Want to… Live La Vida Loca If getting back in the game is what you’re aiming to do right after saying, “I don’t,” head to party hot spots like Ibiza, San Francisco, or Berlin to dance like you’ve never danced before — with someone you’ve never danced with before.

I love getting away to the newly renovated Dolores. Great spot for people watching, or city watching if you get a spot higher on the hill. Bring a friend, some wine, delicious cured meats from @columbusmeats and imagine you are on vacation 🙂 #sanfrancisco #craftmeat #salami #sp A video posted by San Francisco And Beyond 😃 (@sanfrancisco) on May 11, 2016 at 8:02pm PDT #foodspots_berlin – Finally the weekend seems to be a bit warmer. So what about having a first look at one of Berlin’s beer gardens? Like here at Café am Neuen See you can enjoy the sunlight, have some snacks and of course a nice cold beer after walking through Tiergarten park with your friends and family. Happy weekend everyone. #visit_berlin A photo posted by visitBerlin (@visit_berlin) on Apr 29, 2016 at 3:22am PDT You Want to… Try Something Daring You’ve just signed the papers and you’re ready to get your heart pumping again, right? Venture to Costa Rica or Peru and try your hand at tackling activities like surfing, paragliding, or multi-day treks — things that you once thought were wild are now tantalizingly within your reach.

Take your clique to places like New Orleans or St. Barts to eat, drink, and be merry — in classically chic style, of course. Our Friday night soundtrack.

Take time to rediscover who you are away from all the things you used to define yourself by. Fly your device-free self to the Scottish Highlands or take up organic farming in remote areas around the world to take a step back and gain some much-needed perspective.

And you want to enjoy your new status. Hop on a plane bound for Europe and unwind by touring around France’s wine country, Ireland’s casual and vibrant pub life, or by biking around a laid-back Italian village. You can thank us later. There’s a fantastic bike path that runs south from Beaune and goes through some of the most beautiful vineyards in France (and the world). This was a stop along the way just before the village of Pommard and shows the little maisons (houses) for shade and snacks while working the vineyards. #takeover with @heywhitneya #visitfrenchwine #bourgogne A photo posted by Visit France (@visitfrance) on Jun 24, 2016 at 7:25am PDT The colourful Streets of Dublin.
