Musings of a Virtuoso Travel Advisor …
If you have a bucket list, like many people do, at some point, when the time is right, you’ll need to choose where to go next.
How long is your bucket list of dream destinations? If it’s like mine, it’s a mile long, but I think you can never have too many dreams. Sometimes you just need some guidance to pick one and make it a reality. Here are some suggestions for moving forward.
Try narrowing your list by region. Do you need to stay domestic? America’s National Parks are absolute treasures to be explored. You can get unmatched access to off-the-beaten-path locales and in-park accommodations. Yellowstone is a top-seller (for a reason!), but Glacier, the Grand Canyon, and Alberta/Banff fall close behind.
Maybe you long for the vibrancy of Latin America, the culture of Europe, or the exotic mystique of Asia. Any of these locales will amaze and delight you and definitely make your travel dreams come true.
Another way to decide is to think themes. Do you want your vacation to be inspirational and uplifting? Seeking thrills on trail, road, and water? Go multi-sport! Looking for an intimate cruise or perhaps an up-close-and-personal African safari experience? I’m with you!
Want to relax and enjoy wellness and nature? Maybe a spa in a beautiful setting is just the ticket!
One more consideration is who you want to travel with. Are you seeking a destination that will delight kids, parents, and grandparents, too? A Utah family trips to Arches and Canyonlands is awesome.
If you’re traveling solo but not wanting to be alone, you will find friendships on adult only adventure vacations. A few faves include biking the Mickelson Trail in South Dakota and the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. How about a girls’ trip with your besties? There are amazing resorts, both home and abroad, that lend themselves perfectly to this experience!
Are you ready to pull out that bucket list and check off a few? I’m here to help you find the best options to live your dreams! If there’s anything the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us it is the value of time and making our days count! Now is the PERFECT time to plan for the future!
