With the holidays over and the brutal cold of winter upon us, it’s only natural to start dreaming of a warm-weather getaway. Luckily, birthday girl Nina Dobrev has just what we need: Her Instagram is filled with vacay snaps in exotic locations that are sure to give you wanderlust. 

From shark diving in Hawaii to bungee jumping in New Zealand, the newly-minted 27-year-old is definitely a daredevil. “Travel is about escaping the hustle and clearing my head,” she writes in one of her snaps.

So what is this starlet up to when she’s not traveling the globe? After wrapping up her work on The Vampire Diaries, she appeared in the new horror-comedy The Final Girls in October. You can expect to see her in the rom-com Crash Pad, out later this year, and the upcoming coming-of-age indie Arrivals.
