Destination of 2022??

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?

5/ Cambodia

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.

4/ Karakol & Lake Issyk-kul, Kyrgyzstan

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.

3/ Bariloche, Patagonia, Argentina

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/

2/ Varanasi

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.

1/ Halong Bay, Vietnam

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!

  1. All excellent picks! I just returned from Argentina not too long ago, and I visited Patagonia– such a stunning part of the country! I hope to visit Cambodia and central Asia one of these days, so your selections give me more of a reason to go sooner than later!

  2. Cambodia is in my list of places I’d love to go back to soon – though admittedly it will be a long time as I still have a long bucket list. Ha Long Bay is in it 😌
