Dream Destinations: Volume 2

This month’s Top 5 must-sees, according to moi.

montenegro1. Montenegro: “It’s like Italy but without the crowds.” “Montenegro is the new Croatia.” Whatever people are saying, I’m convinced. Spectacular hikes followed by a lounge chair next to the cobalt Adriatic? Yes, please.

2. Vast sand dune deserts. Whale bones on the beach. Herero tribesman in German-colonial dress. Bushmen. BUSHMEN. All in the off-the-beaten-path country of Namibia. How can I not want to go?

tasmania3. When I say I want to go to Tasmania, that’s mostly my belly talking. All I’ve heard is grass-fed-lamb-chops this, organic-goat-cheese-salads that. All served in a wild and overgrown setting with a side of local Sauvignon Blanc.

bhutan4. Recently I’ve read a lot about the overcrowding of Everest and the Nepalese resorts. Neighboring Bhutan, however, doesn’t seem to have this problem. Their main claim to fame? Oh, just being the happiest country on earth. That, plus dramatic cliff-faces and mountaintop monasteries.

srilanka5. I’m hoping to get to Sri Lanka within the year. Word on the street is the beaches are beautiful and the inland tea farms are even better. Plus there are elephants. ‘Nuff said.
