The Big To-Do: My Top Travel Locations

Hey World,

Now that I've got a steady income and an allotted amount of vacation days per annum, it's time to start looking at the next twelve months (before my benefits start over again) to see where I want to go, what I can afford, and how I'm going to maximize my vacation without comprising giving my job 150%. 

It is my hope that I can take anywhere from 4-6 different trips during a year, each for about 1 week. This would help me distribute the days I'm not at work/in the country across time rather than take longer breaks -- but it's also possible that it may be more beneficial to my work/life balance to take longer breaks less frequently.

Regardless of how it happens, I've come up with a list of destinations that I really want to visit in the next couple of years -- all of which are countries that I haven't been to yet, and which I think are reasonably easy to get to from Tanzania.


On the Continent:
Burundi
Malawi 
Mozambique
Zambia / Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls)
Ethiopia
Somaliland 
Madagascar

In Europe: 
Switzerland
Turkey 
Italy 
Portugal
Greece
Germany

Other:
Azerbaijan


This list, of course, does not guarantee that (all of) these countries will be visited by me in the somewhat near future, nor does it exclude the very real possibility that I may find myself going elsewhere!

However, the mock calendar is being put together now and it's with crossed fingers and toes that I can knock off at least 5 of these countries in the next 11 months!

I may or may not be making an announcement soon to elaborate ;)

If you could go anywhere in the world this year, what countries would be at the top of your list?

xoxo,
M
