Since returning home one of the most common questions I get is “Where will you run off to next?”. Now I realize that when most people ask this they are half joking, but little do they know I am already way ahead of them! Here is a list of the countries up next on Hannah’s Travel Agenda.
There has not been a single person I have come across who has had anything even remotely bad to say about Tanzania. Kilimanjaro, safaris, glorious beaches, Masai people – Tanzania has it all. Next summer I have hopes of working abroad here and have even gone as far as to change my schedule so I can take Swahili next year! Wish me luck on that one.
I want to go on a hike. Not a one day waltz around a pre-made trail with a million bucket hat wearing tourists, but a real challenge. I’m talking multiple days, covered in mud, battling through the forest and mosquitos, sleeping under the stars kind of hike. Which is exactly what the Ciudad Perdida entitles, a 5 or 6 day journey through the jungle to the undiscovered city. What I love most about this hike is the fact that it is way less touristy than most, yet just as stunning and beautiful. Also, at a mere price $250 for accommodation, food, transportation, etc it is a steal!
Chile, or the snake country as I like to call it, absolutely fascinates me. Due to the fact that the country is so long (2,670 miles to be exact) there is so much diversity. I would love to take a month and backpack the entire country from north to south. There is just so much to see and do there. Giant penguin colonies of 120,000, vast deserts, glaciers, volcanos, Chile is defiantly a must see. For more on Chile click here!
Prior to a month ago, one of the only reasons that Thailand was on my travel radar was for the pure reason of my dream to eat Pad Thai in Thailand. Corny? Trust me I know. But now after encountering multiple people in Sri Lanka who have traveled and even lived in Thailand my eyes have been forever opened. There is more to Thailand than just delicious noodles?!? Who knew.
The main reason I have new found motivation to travel to this exotic country is thanks to the picture above. Thailand is home to some amazing reefs and is one of the best places to learn how to dive. It is much cheaper compared to others places, not to mention absolutely breathe taking. Tourist and backpackers a like flock here, so while it may not be the best place to get a real local feel of what Thailand is like, it is a super fun destination for young adults looking to make some friends and have a good time.
