I hope you and your family are having a lovely start to 2016.

Happy New Year!
The new year is a time to start setting some goals – especially for travel!  Where would you like to go in 2016?
Let’s take some inspiration from Conde Nast. They recently wrote an article about top places to go in 2016. See http://www.cntraveler.com/galleries/2015-12-29/the-top-16-places-to-go-in-2016et’s
Here’s the list:
01 Australia
02 Sri Lanka
03 Mozambique
04 Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar
05 Brazil
06 Ecuador and the Amazon
07 America’s National Parks
08 Pedraza, Spain
09 Iceland
10 Tanzania
11 Medellin Colombia
12 Miami
13 Okinawa Prefecture, Japan
14 Guadeloupe & Martinique
15 Istanbul
16 Paris
Let’s feature many of these spots in the adventure profiling below!
And, to combine it with a little bit different approach, here are some cruise ideas for some of the other spots.
For Mergui Archipelago, check out one of Silversea Cruises’ offerings that include the archipelago. See http://www.virtuoso.com/cruises/14338006/singapore-to-phuket#.Vok22PkrKM8
For Guadeloupe & Martinique, check out one of Seabourn Cruises’ offerings. See


And for Paris, let’s look at AMA Waterways’ river cruises http://www.amawaterways.ca/paris_and_normandy-2016

Discover Sri Lanka
