I’m looking for inspiration for trips and want to discover places I have never heard of, which I bet there are a lot of. I have taken a lot of beach trips and trips around the United States and I want to branch out to visit some more exotic and interesting places. I love visiting places with rich history and those that have had an impact on our way of life as it is today. I also love to visit beautiful places with lots of opportunity for adventure! My aspirations right now are to visit Rome, Venice, and Amsterdam and to go on an Alaskan Cruise. I feel my list is limited and want to add more destinations to my travel bucket list.
So, share with us. If you could go anywhere in the world:
Thanks in advance for sharing!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Why - because I missed visiting the first two times to NZ
To Do - snorkeling, lazing in the sun, drinking great NZ beers, thinking of my coporate exit plan
This looks amazing @Chris Iacovelli! I've been torn between NZ and Australia, but maybe you have made my mind up with that pic!
NZ and Australia are also my dream trips - I have family there I've never met, and would like to, but it's such a long trip that I'd need to take at least two weeks (not counting travel time) to make it worthwhile, and that isn't realistic right now.
I live for golf and luckily I have a tolerant wife who allows me to indulge in my favorite activity, golf, whenever possible. So my dream vacation is to take the wife wherever she wants to go as long as I can bring the clubs and play a round or two. We both have roots in Scotland, so it would be a great time to explore that country and it's golf courses ! I would also love to take her to her ancestral land of Poland, so we can go to the village her family is named after. I haven't a clue what people do in Poland, but I'm still excited at the idea of more exploration with my best friend. There's probably a golf course too, just saying.
Scotland is gorgeous! And as the home of golf, you should be covered! St. Andrews has seven public courses (according to Wikipedia; I don't play) and is a really beautiful old town. And if you're old enough to remember the movie Chariots of Fire, the famous "running on the beach" scene was filmed there!
Love your idea @George Pomar, especially the part where you are going where your wife wants to go! So sweet!
I've always been into history, museums, and walking tours of beautiful cities. But in December my sister and I went to Costa Rica for a week - picked at random from a tour company's offerings because there were spots available and it was a relatively short distance (only 4 hours from DFW, where I already was for a work trip.)
While they certainly have their share of museums and beautiful cities, it's really known for ecotourism - rainforests, volcanoes, etc. It's one of the most ecologically diverse countries in the world. And because it's relatively small, you can get beaches and rainforests and urban nightlife in a single trip. Highly recommended.
(This is the view from our hotel room at the base of the Arenal volcano at sunrise.)
And because of that trip, my bucket list has changed somewhat (well, gotten bigger 🙄). Our last day was spent snorkeling (my first time) on the Pacific coast. I loved it, but that side of Costa Rica is all black volcanic ocean beds, so you don't get to see the really bright fish and sunlight through the water. So now I've added the Caribbean (haven't narrowed it down to a specific place yet, although my brother and SIL love Turks and Caicos) so I can spend multiple days snorkeling.
Costa Rica is a wonderful country! We used to surf there quite a bit back in the 1980s and early 90s, and have even surfed both sides of the country in the same day! Highly recommend picking up the cross-country train too. Great memories there, and that is a beautiful photo!
Love all these ideas @Esther Strom and @George Pomar! I'm adding Costa Rica to my list now! Love the pic! So beautiful!
Costa Rica always ranks very high on global happiness index. There are many reasons for this but after just spending 6 weeks there I understand some of the reasons why:
While my wife and I will continue to travel the world, enjoying as much of the beauty of this planet before it is changed beyond recognition, Costa Rica will stay in hour hearts and somewhere we will almost certainly go back .
If you love nature, check out my Instagram as a lot of it is Costa Rica
Thanks so much @Dreamsuite Mike for all the suggestions and info! Greatly appreciated and thanks for sharing!
For me, and I can't say exactly why, I have always been drawn to Northern Europe as a dream destination. Starting in Denmark to visit all of the historical landmarks in Copenhagen, and working east and north through the Fjords of Norway, the aurora borealis in Sweden and forests of Finland. Maybe because I have lived in densely populated cities my entire life I yearn for open areas on the globe. I am lucky to have lived almost my entire life less than a mile from the Atlantic Ocean, so I don't need oceans or seas, I need open horizons and clear skies.
Traveling in my RV, with my husband and dog, to the national parks in the US.
Rolling home around is tempting! Something we've done a couple times, and will surely check out more, is Georgia state parks. Most have cabins/resorts attached and offer some pretty cool things, not just limited to campsites. I don't know if other states do it too, I'm unfamiliar with any in Florida, but being able to play disc golf, or archery, or target shooting, boat rentals, hiking, fishing, and even golf courses, are available in GA. They're very affordable, clean, and well-located. The state parks there always have the RV hookups too.
Oh this is one I never thought of @Marjorie! I have travelled all over AZ and gone to many of Arizona's state parks and state parks in other states, but never thought of RV'ing around from park to park. Thanks for the suggestions!
I would love to go to Beijing and meet my partners family. We had first class flights booked with all the Avios points I'd saved up from travelling for work. Booked for September 2020, I'm only just recently allowed into the country!
Great idea @Stuart Capel - London! I love going back to where my roots were formed! You should totally reboot that trip! I also have a bucket list item for going back to Okinawa, Japan where I partially grew up.
Thanks, I can't wait!
There is a Chinese saying, literally "above, there is heaven; below, there is Suzhou and Hangzhou"), referring to the legendary beauty of this region.
My dream vacation is Suzhou and Hangzhou, two cities that can be reached within 30-60 minutes by train from Shanghai where I live. I just went on a trip last week, it is really beautiful!
Wow, that looks beautiful!
I can't pick a favourite place from all where I have been as everywhere has its own merits and no where I have been has disappointed.
I do know what gives me the best feeling and that is being immersed in the wonders of nature and the explosion of nature really is incomparable within the tropics. Whether it is land or sea, there is an indescribable overload of colour, sound, quantity, danger and wonder and it is just amazing.
Nature isn't for everyone though, although if you aren't a nature person and are looking to step outside your comfort zone, nature can truly be life-changing.
So Nature is my number 1 category, followed by people and food.
For tropical forests:
For big animals:
For a balance of what you'll see:
For coral reef:

The best food I have experienced on all my travels comes from Malaysia
This is easy, every single place we have been to, we have met the most incredible people. We are by no means wealthy but we are comfortable. Yet, the people we often meet on our travels have a fraction of the freedom, fortune and wealth we have and are some of the kindest people we have ever met. We have been fed, welcome into peoples homes, picked up when its pouring with rain. You go to countries outside of what we call the western world and you will meet the most amazing people.
You made me think of the most obscure place I want to vacation at, Croatia. Never knew this place looked like a storybook!
Hey @Summer_Hogan ,
my dream trip is to travel through time and relive my childhood moments. Simple right? :)
Me too @Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_ - that would be simply awesome! Let's ask the tech world to get right on that!
For me it's taking my family on a tour of Australia and New Zealand to meet all the amazing people I've got to known thanks to my time at Atlassian and in the Atlassian community.
Soo much to do and soo much to see there :)
Sorry I'm late to this, I'm not a big traveler. I've technically already done my dream vacation, but given my wife and I have two little ones I imagine we will do it again in the future.
To recap, for our honeymoon, we went on the Disney Land-Sea Package. That was 4 days at Walt Disney World in Orlando and 3 nights on their Nassau cruise ship.
We will likely just do Disney World with the kids in the near future but it truly is one of the happiest places on Earth ;)
For Domestic US, I like the RV idea and travel around the US. I still like the idea of staying in one of those beach houses that is over the water.
Wow! So much fun to read these and look at the pics!
I have the whole of Asia to discover (among other places). I think it would be some epic tour of certain parts of Asia.
I always wanted to pay a visit to Japan and go sightseeing.
