Working for a travel company like Go Ahead means that we’re a particularly curious group when it comes to seeking out new destinations—we’re always on the hunt for new places to explore! We asked around the office to see which countries were on the must-go lists of the most savvy travelers. Read on for a few of the top destinations we have our eyes on.
“I am curious about Japan—such a different culture and have heard it is a beautiful country.” — Sarah, Senior Tour Consultant
“The top place on my bucket list for the next year is Iceland. I have heard nothing but great things about Iceland and am eager to get over there and do some hikes, go caving, explore the local culture and try some cured shark. Actually, I’m not really that excited about the shark.”— Brittany, Alumni Tour Specialist
“I would love to visit Iceland and relax in the Blue Lagoon. I feel like it’s a very popular destination right now, and I want to see what all the hype is about!” — Nicole, Junior Account Manager, Group Sales
“I’d love to visit Brazil. Why? Largest country in the Southern Hemisphere, growing geopolitical power, rich culture, delicious food, great music, love of soccer and my daughter’s current obsession with the Rio and Rio 2 movies.” — Silvia, Director of Strategic Initiatives
“I have wanted to experience Brazil firsthand after hearing so many great things about the vibrant culture and lifestyle from friends.” — Bryant, Creative Director
“Croatia‘s mix of rich cultural heritage and gorgeous coastlines along the Adriatic is very intriguing to me.” — Courtney, Copywriter
“Although tourism to the beautiful Adriatic coast is slowly climbing, it looks like a dream and I’ve heard from everyone who’s been it was one of their favorite trips!” — Sofie, Tour Consultant
“Number 1 on my travel list right now is Norway, or any part of Scandinavia. I love the simplicity of the Nordic culture and seeing the fjords is something I’ve been dreaming of for a long time. (And I’m also Swedish!)” — Stephanie, Interactive Designer
“Egypt has been at the top of my list since I was a kid!” — Clarissa, Senior Account Manager, Partnerships
