The world of travel is not at a standstill after the pandemic, but that doesn’t mean those of us who have the travel bug aren’t thinking about it every single day since March.
For me, I have planned every detail from where I am going to be to my packing list to who will be joining me. It has definitely brought a sense of calm amid all the chaos.
What are the Top Destinations for Travelers?
It turns out that I am not the only one who dreams about traveling. According to My Baggage data, Americans continue to “travel” the internet to plan their next vacation, whenever that may be.
According to the study, between October 2020 and December 2020, the majority of travel-related Google search results indicated that Americans want to visit Italy, Greece, and Mexico. Only one country is more desirable: Canada.
Canadians have similar travel goals to their southern neighbors.
According to Development Counsellors International, Canadians are divided on their interest in North America, with 43% of the population going there (mostly Mexico at 41%), the Caribbean at 41%, Western Europe at 34%, and Western Europe with 34%. The North-East, South-East, and Southern Asia have 21%.
These are the top five destinations that travelers most often search for when they travel.
Mexico is often referred to as sun, beach, and sand. It is a country that has been popular with Canadians and Americans for its proximity and its rich culture.
The country’s beauty is not only its long, white sandy beaches but also its natural beauty, and its authenticity to its land and roots.
Mexico is often thought of as a tourist destination. However, it offers so much more. You can hike the Oaxaca Mountains, go whale- and sea turtle-watching, swim in the Sea of Cortez, and discover Mexico’s many waterfalls, which seem to be filled with as much wonder and awe as water.
Mexico is the ideal place to go for outdoor adventures, extreme or laid-back, or simply to relax by the pool or beach.
Many travelers dream of traveling to the Caribbean. Barbados is the top Caribbean destination. There are many Caribbean Islands.
Barbados has been called the “Culinary Capital of the Caribbean” and is a true foodie’s dream. Barbados is a must-visit for anyone who longs to experience the authentic taste of a new country.
You can choose from a variety of culinary experiences that highlight the freshness of their resources, including seafood, tropical fruit, and a traditional Bajan breakfast at the pool. For lunch, you might go to a local spot for a light lunch or a top-notch restaurant for dinner.
You can’t leave Barbados and not have a Friday night Oistin’s fish fry. It’s as much an experience as it’s a meal.
Barbados is the birthplace and home to rum. A tour of a rum distillery like Mount Gay is possible. This distillery dates back to 1890, and it is the first commercial rum distillery in the world. This is a unique experience that you will only find on the island.
And if you can’t wait or want to get started on a (safe) adventure again, Barbados offers a 12-Month Welcome Stamp, allowing people to work-from-home-from-the-island for a whole year.
3. Travel in Italy
Do you want to go to Italy? While this European country was certainly in the news throughout the pandemic, Italy has always been in our hearts and on our bucket list. This is the epicenter for art and history. If you are looking for a foreign culture, this is the place to be.
No matter how many times you have been to Italy, or how often you visit it each year, there is always more to see. Rome shouldn’t be your only home when you’re visiting Italy. It is amazing that every new city and each new region has something different, which makes them all shine but still remain uniquely Italian.
It is obvious that everything and everyone that Italy does is unlike anything else in the world. They are renowned for their delicious dishes and the way that they dress.
Before you travel, make sure you have at least a basic knowledge of Italian. Babbel will help you learn the language. You can find lesson plans to learn as much Italian as you like while planning your trip.
It’s hard to find a better way than Italy to protect its cultural heritage, such as the Duomo di Milano, the Leaning Tower at Pisa, and the Colosseum, which is easily one of the most popular tourist attractions in the entire world.
Greece may be the destination most people think about when they think, “I just want to get away!”
Greece is home to many islands, offering the best in island living. It is ideal for those who are in dire need of sun, relaxation and sea. Greece is a Mediterranean country that has taken in European influences, and it has been voted the best destination for travelers.
The Greek lifestyle, Greek food and the famous blue-and-white structures that overlook the sea are all reasons why Greece is so magical.
Athens and Santorini are the most visited spots in Greece. But, Greece actually has 6,000 islands and islets that you can explore. You could experience a completely different experience each time you return to Greece because there are so many islands. You’ll be planning your next trip before you leave.
5. Quebec, Canada
Many people find the idea of seeing the world from a new perspective exciting. However, they don’t feel ready to leave their home.
There’s plenty to do and see right in your backyard, or your neighbor’s backyard. This is what you should be doing if you aren’t already.
Canadians and foreign travelers alike often seek out Canada’s French province for its unique French-Canadian culture.
It’s often called the most European area outside of Europe. But it’s the Quebec people and parts that make it stand out.
Montreal and Quebec City rank among the most popular destinations in Quebec. However, with Texas being 2.5 times the size, there is plenty to do (and plenty of space for distance).
Quebec’s best places are those you find after taking a wrong turn. They can be found in charming villages or national parks that seem even more beautiful than the ones before.
