Every traveler I know has a must-visit list a mile long. Back in college, I actually wrote mine out on multiple pieces of paper, with destinations neatly separated by continent. (Yes, I’m a nerd. Why do you ask?)
Honestly, there are few places I wouldn’t go if given the chance. But there’s a handful of destinations, trips, experiences that I can’t seem to get out of my head. Some of them I can’t afford — yet. Others are just waiting for me to make them happen. For your inspiration (and mine!), here’s a sampling.
Tibet, for spectacular mountain vistas and a gentle Buddhist culture:
Uganda, to see gorillas in the wild:
Jerusalem, for its rich culture and centuries of history:
Antarctica, for otherworldly landscapes and unique wildlife:
Prince Edward Island, Canada, to satisfy the young girl inside me that still loves the “Anne of Green Gables” books:
I’ve shown you mine — now it’s your turn. Which places and experiences top your travel bucket list?
