Destinations to travel to – how to decide where to go
The world is a big place and it’s not easy to decide where to travel to. Some people want beaches and palm trees, while for others the ultimate dream trip is a vacation full of world class museums and Michelin-starred restaurants. Personally, I find it hard to narrow down my travel plans just because there are so many fabulous places to explore. So here are a few tricks.
Narrow down when you want to go
If it’s winter, you might lean towards ski resorts or tropical destinations. If you’re a budget traveller, you might want to plan your trip around places that are cheaper at certain times of the year. If you hate crowds, try shoulder seasons, like Europe in spring or fall.
Decide what your top activities are
If you can’t live without swimming and pristine beaches look at the Caribbean or exotic islands such as the Seychelles. If you want wildlife, look to Canada’s north or maybe a safari in Africa. For urban trippers, New York is always a great place to visit, and for culture buffs, Europe is one of the best destinations to travel to because of its world class museums, castles and vibrant cities.
Remember, you don’t have to go everywhere all at once
Slow down. If you don’t see every country in Europe on one trip, all the better. Now you’ll have somewhere new to see on your next trip. I try to mix it up, and make my travels a combination of old favourites and new destinations, though there are certain places I will never get tired of, such as the South of France and the beaches of southern Thailand.
