Many people have “travel more” as a New Year’s resolution, but it’s a rare thing for them to actually go through with it. If you’d like to beat the odds and get a few more stamps on your passport this year, here are just four places that you might visit in 2019.
1. Moscow, Russia
Moscow is one of the most thriving cities in Russia. Filled with shops, bars, restaurants, theaters, malls and museums as far as the eye can see, you’ll probably need to take multiple vacations just to see it all. It’s hard to fit everything into a single tour. You might find yourself planning your second trip while you’re still on your first!
2. Bora Bora, South Pacific Islands
Bora Bora is more than just a fun name to say. It’s also a place where white sand glitters on picturesque beaches filled with crabs, umbrella drinks and crystal-clear waters. If you’re looking for somewhere to take a tropical vacation, this is it. It doesn’t get any better than the crowning gem of the South Pacific Islands.
3. Orange County, New York
NYC might be the golden standard, but there are other cities and counties that are worth visiting in the state of New York. For example, Orange County boasts everything from five-star restaurants to extravagant golf courses. You can tee up on the green of Monroe Country Club NY before grabbing a bite to eat and enjoying the scenery.
4. Akita, Japan
Japan is known for its famous cities like Tokyo and Osaka, but there are little-known gems like Akita in its northern provinces. Green in the summer and white in the winter, it’s a beautiful place for nature lovers of all types, and it’ll serve as a great backdrop for a relaxing vacation at any time of year.
These are just a few places that you’ll want to put on your bucket list for 2019. Whether you’re considering a quick hop across the pond or an extended backpacking adventure around the world, use this list to help you narrow down your options!
