Pinterest is essentially a living mood board for all things aspirational, making it a veritable treasure trove of jaw-dropping travel destinations, swoon-worthy homes, up-and-coming food trends, and much more. With over 75 billion ideas taking root on the site, Pinterest is, in many ways, a barometer for what people are interested in across the world. To capitalize on that intel, Pinterest analyzes all of their data to compile The Pinterest 100, an annual Pinterest board of the emerging trends to try in the New Year. When it comes to travel, they are able to identify brand-new travel trends as well as up-and-coming destinations for the year ahead. Here's where people are booking their flights to in 2017, according to our favorite sharing site:
