With warmer weather fast approaching, I’m eager to venture outside and explore some of the national parks Canada has to offer. This year is a great time to do it, as they’ve released the national parks pass for free in celebration of Canada’s 150th! I don’t have the opportunity to visit nearly as many parks and historic sites as I’d like to this year, but it did get me thinking about my dream destinations list.
I’ve long believed travel to be one of the best instructors in life lessons. Whether positive or negative, different locations can leave a lasting impression and teach you something you might not have previously known, either about the destination or yourself. Here, in order of when I first visited them, are a few things I learned from the first ten countries I’ve traveled to.
Having been lucky enough to experience both, which did I prefer and how – if money is no obstacle for you – do you decide which to prioritize?
Given that I’ve only been on one true cruise, I fall easily into ‘amateur hour’ in terms of cruising tips. Even so, I picked up a few tips I feel will be helpful to get a first-time cruiser off on the right foot. If you have dreams of exploring a floating city while traversing the ocean to distant destinations, you’re in the right place!
