In need of some travel inspiration for this year’s travels? Don’t miss this insider’s guide to where to travel in 2020 – and let’s kick this decade off with a travel bang.
Whew, peeps. a bit like that, 2020 is breathing down our necks sort of a sly dragon with some pretty potent breath.
No matter what percentage times we collectively protest that we simply can’t believe it’s almost 2020, that 2019, nay the last decade, has passed within the blink of an eye fixed, the very fact remains that 2020 is here.
What better time to start out planning your 2020 travels?
I don’t often get all sentimental or reflective but this decade has been a rollercoaster.
In it, I decided to go away travel writing, visited the school of law to coach then worked as a lawyer within the City [of London] then threw it everywhere and have become a full-time travel blogger, which is what I’ve been doing for the last three years.
Don’t worry, before you begin yarking on about how I’m living the dream, I’ll say that it accompanies its justifiable share of private angst, crying at the keyboard and sacrifice – nothing is ever as perfect because it looks.
Anyway, this isn’t some poor me dirge – throughout the last decade I’ve been ready to visit some mind-blowing destinations and I’ve chosen my absolute favorites for the places you ought to be traveling to in 2020.
Kicking off my pick of holiday destinations for 2020 in Mauritius.
Mauritius may be a drop by the Indian Ocean, an attractive blend of pristine beaches, lush rainforest with waterfalls that appear as if they’ve been plucked straight out of Jurassic Park oh – and a dormant volcano to top it all off.
If Mauritius didn’t invent barefoot luxe, it’s certainly adopted it all together in the proper ways. Cool hotels just like the Outrigger Mauritius offer laid-back but high-end beachfront accommodation from which you’ll explore the remainder of the island.
Don’t think that Mauritius is all about luxury hotels though – with stunning natural attractions and delicious cuisine, there are tons to ascertain outside of the resorts.
Cape Town and therefore the Garden Route, South Africa
Starting in Cape Town and winding its way along one among the foremost incredible stretches of coastline within the world, The Garden Route is an absolute must if you’re thinking of doing a 2020 road trip.
The reasons are simple. First, let’s start with Cape Town itself – a thriving city ensconced cozily between a series of mountains and therefore the sea.
Vibrant neighborhoods like Bo Kaap and a series of cooler-than-should-be-allowed bars and restaurants lure visitors faraway from the beach, while must-visits like Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are jaw-droppingly beautiful.
From Cape Town, it just gets better – truck right down to the Cape of excellent Hope before moving on to Knysna, Plettenberg Bay, Mossel Bay and finishing with a safari in Addo Elephant Park.
Oh, and you would possibly also take a detour to the Winelands of Stellenbosch while you’re within the area because who doesn’t want to drink delicious wine against a backdrop of epic views?
