We have all had the dream of our perfect vacation. For some of us, it may involve going to our destination single, and coming back home in a relationship with our soul mate. It could involve fulfilling a lifelong dream, like climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, climbing Mount Everest, going to the Great Wall of China, or going to that one tour date to see your favourite band for their final show just so you could say that you were there. For most, it involves the usual destinations. Going backpacking in Europe and seeing all the usual touristy stuff that is expected of you when you go to Europe (i.e.: Stonehenge, Buckingham Palace, The Louvre, The Eiffel Tower, The Vatican, kissing the Blarney Stone, etc). However, you will find that most of these places nowadays, are well, really crowded. As one Eric Theodore Cartman says, “But the lines! Everywhere you go, people, crowds, the rides are great, but... all the lines, lines, LINES! If there's one thing I hate, all the lines, lines, lines, LINES!! And then there get to be so many people that they make FastPass. So then there's lines for FastPass. You stand in line to get a ticket to stand in line later. Then there's lines for the bathrooms, lines for the drinks, lines for cantakuras and rare Kartankulas Plinks!” For some, it doesn’t matter if you are standing in line for 10 minutes or 10 hours; it’s worth the wait. For others though, it’s enough to put strain and a downer on the whole trip as you may have to start making sacrifices such as skipping the gift shop (or power shopping like a champ). Hopefully with this list of 10 of the Biggest Tourist Destinations that you don’t know about, it will give you hope, fulfill all your dreams of the ideal vacation, and it won’t make you say, “Screw you guys…, I’m goin’ home!”
10 Wanna go somewhere where you won’t freeze to death? Pick Latvia!
9 Outdoors for him; shopping for you???
Sounds like a pretty sweet deal. Enter the Czech Republic.
The Czech is landlocked between Austria, Germany, Poland and of course Slovakia. Not only is The Czech loaded with historical sites with all the monasteries and historical buildings to see (check out their clock), but The Czech has a lot of outdoors things to do such as bungee jumping off of Zvikovské podhradí (a bridge that is over the Vltava valley), go and get some peace in Kampa, go take a gander at the Terezin Concentration Camp (especially if your outdoorsman is a history buff), go caving on the Moravian Karst…, lots, even if you just end up going to the zoo! For those of you who get their physical activity by using their credit card at Coach or Michal Kors, one word: Prague. That is all.
8 Go see some animals!
7 Take a Roman Holiday without Rome
That’s right. We said Roman without Rome! Enter Leptis Magna.
6 It’s all about time with the FamJam
5 Speaking of beaches…,
4 How did THIS make the list?!
3 No, they don’t want to suck your blood.
On the edge of the Black Sea, Romainia has been becoming more and more popular to tourists but it hasn't peaked yet, so bonus for you. It’s also like Latvia in a way as, since it’s in Europe, you can peg off another country or two if you so desired as it’s all a quick flight away.
2 Ok, so it’s in the Middle East…,
1 Again, we know it’s the Middle East…,
Whether you are religious or not, Israel is a must on your bucket list just for the history in itself. There is just so much to do and see in this country. You've got the Western Wall, Nimrod Fortress, Luna Park (awesome roller coasters), Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, the Sea of Galilee, and the Dead Sea (which is believed to keep you youthful and also allows you to float cause of the salt factor), but one of the most moving places to go is Yad Vashem. It was featured on the A&E Show “Gene Simmons Family Jewels”, and for good reason. Yad Vashem is the world center for holocaust research, education, documentation, and commemoration, and it’s truly an eye opening experience, no matter your religious/non-religious beliefs. As always, before you travel, always check with a travel agent or with travel advisory pages to make sure you are clear to go.
