2016 is quickly coming to an end. That means it’s time to start looking forward to making 2017 awesome. (We need it; we deserve it.) One way to do that is find a spot somewhere on this big blue marble of ours and direct your wanderlust-life-force straight towards it.
The travel website Contiki has a solid travel philosophy: “It’s about changing your perspective on the world, walking in others shoes, witnessing different cultures, religions, and ways of living.” They, like us, want you to get out there — even if it’s just one short trip once next year, it’ll surely pay dividends for the rest of your life.
Contiki asked a swath of 18-35 year olds (yes, those dastardly backpacking millennials) what they’re looking forward to experiencing in 2017. Here’s a visual tour of their most common picks. Hopefully we can all make it to at least one in the year to come.
