How many of these places have you visited? How many are on your list? It was lovely for me to see Manchester listed as we are only about 50 minutes away. I have been to some of the places listed and The Galapagos is certainly on my list.

There are lots of options to think about when booking travel. Some people prefer to act as their own travel agents and book everything independently before that they spent time searching things to do in DC. I have done this a lot in the past as I felt that I was getting better prices and greater flexibility that way. This isn’t always the case however and in particular, you may want to enlist some professional help if you are travelling to somewhere more unusual. Don’t rule out companies like Club Med for example, as they cover way more destinations than I had thought and then maybe consider other companies like Trailfinders, who I’ve always found really good.

  1. I agree with you about Manchester – We often have a long weekend staying at Salford Quays, which is very relaxing, plenty to do and just a short tram ride from Manchester City centre!

  2. I love Poland, it’s a beautiful, cheap country with very friendly people. I would never have thought of visiting Botswana though, sounds fascinating!

  3. Never been to Australia, but looks like a great place to go. My husband went out there for a while before I met him. I love Italy. I’ve been to Rome and would love to explore more of Italy. Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky
