Antarctica and The South Georgia Islands

Antarctica is one of the top places to visit that is on everyone’s bucket list. A continent that does not belong to any country and only inhabited by a few thousand researchers each year. A unique destination that has currently only 25,000 visitors each year. This number is expected to grow to 50,000 by 2025.

Can you imagine setting foot on the ice shelf that no one has set foot on before? A polar white landscape that is so white that it dazzles. Stunning mountain landscapes, brilliant sunrises and sunsets and the largest icebergs that you will ever see.

They call the South Georgia Islands the ‘Serengeti of Africa.’ Where else could you encounter a colony of 30,000 King Penguins, elephant seals and fur seals who look at you sleepily and wonder why you are staring at them? Orca, humpback and minke whales all cruise the depths of the ocean searching for their next meal. A variety of birds that you may not see anywhere else in the world.

Travel to Antarctica and the region is only available during the months of November and March. Departures can either be from Ushuaia or Montevideo depending on your cruise company.

We believe Antarctica is one of the top places to travel to.

Armenia

Yerevan, Armenia is one of the best places to visit in Armenia, and easily one of the top destinations to travel to.

The Armenian capital city is coming off of a massive, peaceful revolution that completely changed their government and the country is trying to put its treacherous past behind it for a brighter future.  What makes Yerevan so special is the people that live there.  The locals are friendly, calm, and always up for a good cup of coffee or tea.  Or wine.

Head to Saryan Street in the city, otherwise known as Wine Street, and enjoy a glass of delicious Karas wine, my favourite.  The city has more sidewalk cafes than any place I’ve ever seen and it gives Yerevan a pulse that is incomparable to other cities in spring and summer.

Yerevan, older than Rome, is teeming with buildings made from a pink stone called ‘tuf’ that gives the city an electric hue in the mornings and evenings.  There really isn’t a place quite like it on Earth and I think that everyone should add it to their 2019 destination list.

Austria – Salzkammergut Lakes

If you are looking for a great destination to visit my recommendation is to head to Austria and the Salzkammergut Lakes region.

Consisting of more than 50 lakes of all shapes and sizes, the region is not only stunningly beautiful, it also offers plenty of things to see and do.

In winter the lakes region is ideally located to access the ski resorts of Zwölferhorn and Dachstein, whilst in summer – and throughout the year – the sparkling lakes with their mountain backdrops provide the perfect place to unwind.

As well as the numerous water activities on offer, there are salt mines to visit, cable cars and cogwheel trains to ride and hundreds of kilometres of trails to explore on foot or two wheels.

With so many lakes in the area, it’s hard to know which ones to visit. My tip is to choose one lakeside town as your base and do day trips to other towns and lakes – they are all within easy reach.

Hallstattersee and Mondsee (home of the famous ‘Sound of Music’ wedding church) are two of the most popular lakes to visit but if you’d prefer a quieter location don’t overlook Fuschlsee which is just 30 minutes from Salzburg.

Australia – Margaret River

As far as remote destinations go, Western Australia is about as far removed as you can get, and once over here (if travelling within Australia) you could rightly feel as if you’re in another country altogether.

But certain pockets of WA are becoming internationally renowned and gaining daily in popularity.

One of the top places to visit before mass tourism truly strikes is the Margaret River Region.

Margaret River has been called “The Jewel of the South-West” and in 2010 featured as one of the top ten destinations to visit worldwide by Lonely Planet.

Famous for its world-class wines and gourmet food, this region has also become part of an internationally acclaimed foodie event – The Margaret River Escape which attracts celebrity chefs from all around the world each year.
With its renowned surf beaches, beautiful Karri forests, many limestone caves, wooded walks and cycle tracks, and a beautiful river perfect for kayaking, Margaret River really deserves its accolades because there is just so much to do in a relatively small region.

Situated between Cape Naturalist in the North and Cape Leeuwin in the South the region extends about 135km north to south, and to cap it all there’s a beautiful walk you can do between the two coastal capes.

Australia – Sydney

Sydney is a bucket list destination for so many travellers, and rightly so. The city has so much to offer visitors from the big guns, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, to world-class annual events like the NYE fireworks, the world’s largest Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in March and the spectacular VIVID festival of Light and Ideas each May.

With more people travelling every year why postpone your visit any longer, 2019 is the perfect time to come and see Sydney for yourself.

My biggest tip as a Sydney local is to make sure you lock in your accommodation nice and early if you are coming into town for any of the main events.  Accommodation in Sydney is at 80% capacity year-round and prices go up significantly during key times. Leave it too late and you end up paying top dollar for a less than a special room.

Cambodia

For travellers to South East Asia, Cambodia is not a new destination.  Its friendly people have been greeting visitors with genuinely warm smiles for decades.  And whilst the temples of Angkor are deservedly popular, some will argue that Cambodia is already ‘over-touristed’.  Despite this, surprisingly few travellers venture beyond the tourist hotspots, even though it’s a lot easier to escape the crowds than you might imagine.

Tourists rush to Siem Reap, but Cambodia has many equally impressive off-the-beaten-path Angkorian temples that, chances are, you won’t have to share with anyone.  Things are developing rapidly though and 2019 might just be your best chance to visit Cambodia I know and love before it changes.

Chile – Torres del Paine

South America is an amazingly diverse continent. Anyone who ever visited this region will tell you that. There are many great locations in South America worth exploring, but if I were to recommend just one it would definitely be Torres del Paine National Park in southern Chilean Patagonia.

Nothing can prepare you for your first glimpses of Torres del Paine! It’s intimidating and utterly unforgettable. A paradise of pristine rivers, roaring waterfalls, massive ice fields, and vertiginous granite peaks that will take your breath away. Literally!

Torres del Paine is as wild as it is beautiful, so in order to have a great time there, you should go prepared. One of the things to consider when planning your trip to Patagonia is the climate. Weather is very extreme here and it can change rapidly. You can count on strong winds, rain, mud, and even snow at any time of year.

Most visitors prefer to visit Torres del Paine in summer (November to March), when the weather is warmer and more stable. However, in summer the park is full to capacity and everything is more expensive. So deciding what’s the best time for you to go depends on your preferences, expectations and budget.
