Happy New Year! With a new year brings new travels to new destinations. I have 8 more months left to travel before I am going back to work and I am in the planning stages of figuring out my next destinations. In 2013, I traveled to the beautiful turquoise destinations of California, Hawaii, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico. Those beauties left me speechless! Not only that, I was able to find turquoise in all the places I visited: NB, PEI, NS, Ontario, Quebec, Nevada, North Carolina, and Maine. Well, it’s time to look for more! What’s next for me? That’s the tough question! I’m not quite sure! That’s what I need your help for! I would love for my readers (and possibly soon to be readers?) to suggest new, unique, and beautiful turquoise destinations for me to visit in the 2014 year. If I find them interesting, in my budget, time frame, and within my means, I’ll be adding those destinations (your recommendations) to the list of stops throughout my 2014 travels.
Rather than making New Year resolutions, I want to live my life to fullest by resolving to make my dreams come true every day of the year, not just at the beginning of the year. I’ll soon be planning my 2014 bucket list and dreaming of the new destinations I’ll soon visit. Until then, I want to hear from you! Some of you are the experts! Share your wisdom with me. Where should I go? What do I need to see? What are your must-see bucket list dream turquoise destinations? I bet if you love them, I’ll love them too!
I want something that looks like this:
Or maybe even this…
Can you think of a place I’d enjoy?
I don’t necessarily need to go to the Caribbean, or an island, but I want to see more of the world’s hidden turquoise gems. In fact, I’d like to leave North America, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. Those are the areas I travel to the most. I want something new and exciting! Yet, I may still hit some of those spots on my way elsewhere! Where will “elsewhere” be? I like all things adventure, while also having a yearning to be at the beach, by the coast, on in the sea. I love any and all water sports. And of course any place turquoise themed. May it be a beach, city, hotel, or tourist attraction, I want to find it!
I’d love for you to share your ideas with me! Maybe you yourself have experienced an incredible turquoise place that you just can’t get off of your mind. Or maybe you are thinking of a place you know I’d love even though you haven’t yet been there yet yourself. Feel free to recommend countries, hidden treasures within countries, cities, beaches, activities, and lodging. If you have links to posts of places you have visited and written about–share them with me! I might just want to highlight your experience on my blog as a guest post! Better yet, if I like your destination I might just link your blog on Turquoise Compass!
Looking forward to the pointers! Researching where to go is often the most daunting part! But it doesn’t have to be because I am in such an amazing community of people who have the experience and already know-it-all! I’d like to use YOU as resources! Not the web… At this point, there are just too many places I’d like to see and I don’t have a sweet clue where to begin! Please help me!
Until then, dreaming of this:
