The 10: Travel Destinations You’ll Want To Book in 2019

Travel is, hands down, one of the most exciting perks of being alive. No matter who you are, what your income, or which destinations you prefer, it’s human nature to want to explore beyond the boundaries of your bubble. How exciting is it to save up and splurge on an experience that broadens your horizons or opens you up to another level of fun? The best!

I wanted to compile a list of the destinations I’d like to tick off my bucket list next year and I know y’all will want to, as well. We’ve done Tulum, we’ve partied in Ibiza… but how about El Nido in the Philippines -or- the Faroe Islands?
