Howdy all! Yes, well, we are back and rolling with 2023. Today I am starting with a review of the 2022 editions of ‘Destination of the Month’, and on Tuesday I will be uplifting the veil on my travel plans for 2023 – last Friday I presented a trailer for 2023 which tells you basically what they are but it’s a trip I’ve been planning since May 2020, and I am very excited to finally be able to reveal it to you all!
But for today let’s look at my top selections of the 11 ‘Destinations of the Month’ I presented in 2022. A quick list – Lyon, Senegal, Benin, Istanbul, Cambodia, Jordan, Halong Bay, Varanasi, Karakol & Lake Issyk-kul, Bariloche and Pangkor Island. So what are my top Five?
Cambodia is a country that’s been on my mind of late. I would like to return there in the next few years and I’ve seen a few vloggers visiting in the lasy few months. It has one of the world’s most exceptional, impressive and mind-blowing arcehological sites in Agkor Wat and the other temples and palaces, but it’s also an emerging destination which I hear has changed an awful lot since I visited 21 years ago.

The least known of places on this list, and somewhat similar to the next one, this part of Central Asia is one of the main highlights of a visit to Kyrgyzstan. From Karakol, a quaint town on the banks of the large and beautiful Lake Issyk-kul to the mountains and glaciers above.
It’s wonderful – the full post HERE.
Patagonia is a wonderful part of the world with mountains and lakes, and this is a great place to introduce yourself to Patagonia’s beauty. I visited back in 2016 now and did a few hikes and just really enjoyed being in one of the world’s truly beautiful places/

Here is a place I hope to be visiting soon! Varanasi is a holy city in India for more than one religion and is a city central to understanding the country as a visitor in many ways. Taking a boat ride at dawn on the Ganges is pretty much compulsory if you do visit and is totally unforgettable.

Finally, it is Halong Bay, in Northern Vietnam that I am giving the crown of ‘Destination of the YEAR’ I guess lol. These are all international destinations, of course, and I didn’t get to any of them last year, but the experience of visiting this unbelievably beautiful spot where wooden sailing ships move between the different rocky islands. It’s a little bit of paradise mixed together with a fairy tale. It would be a great place to visit any time you get the chance.

And that’s what made my top five! Thanks for popping by today! Take care wherever you are – and May the Journey Never End!
