Hello! We're happy to be back, introducing the newest Community Challenge. This time we want you to dream big. Let's share a list of your dream travel destinations! Name places, famous attractions, landmarks, cities, or simply countries that you want to visit... Sooner or later 😉
Feel free to make a list of the top 3, top 5, or even top 10 locations that you'd like to see in a lifetime. Every participant of this month's challenge gets a unique "Travel Planner" badge, and bonus 100 points! Let's create together an unforgettable travel plan 💡
Let me start this month's challenge to mention my top 5 places I'd love to see at least once ✈️
1. 🇳🇿 South Island, New Zealand
2. 🇿🇦 Cape Town, South Africa
3. 🇨🇳 Shanghai, China
4. 🇬🇱 Nuuk, Greenland
5. 🇰🇮 Poland, Kiribati
This month's challenge is an easy one! But difficult because there are so many places left where I would love to go! As I got one off my list this year, here are my Top 10:
Prague and Budapest are perfect city break locations - and not so distant, highly recommend them!
Hooo Love it.
I want to visit in the next coming years:
2- New Zealand: Auckland, Queenstown, etcss.
3- Pérou: Machu Picchu.
4- Scotland: a big trip in much places.
Ireland rocks! They really call it a "green island" for a reason, it's so relaxing to travel around rural areas there 🇮🇪
I don't have a lot of places on my list but the following cities and countries are always in my mind and I hope to travel to someday:
1- Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo - Japan
3- Napoli - Italy
My very first place is not a place in fact, but the reason why. I just want to see the northern lights... just that.
Then I would visit some places with a beautiful beach view.
And then, some place with snow.
So, if Norway was also a beach place, I would list only that country to my list 🤣
Huuummm, beach and snow at the same time??? This is not an easy one.
But one of the most interesting places where I've been is Marakesh, in Morocco. You've got the Atlas mountains very near, with Oukaïmeden being the highest ski resort in Africa. And golden sandy beaches are not far away! So, it might meet your requirements, with additional things too!
Additionally, it's where I had the most surreal temperature experience: 46ºC, very low humidity and windy. Got in the pool, it was OK, but when I got out, I started shivering with cold! It lasted about 30 seconds. I couldn't believe it, so I got in the pool again 😂😂😂 I had to think a little bit what was going on, so I shivered several times, in and out of the pool 🤣🤣🤣 To understand what was going on, my previous experiences with zeers helped a little bit 😃
LOL, I am imagining you getting in, getting out the pool and taking notes on a notebook for experience purposes.
I remember when I went to Chile, San Pedro de Atacama, in the geysers, outside around -9ºC, inside pool (thermal waters from underground) around 40ºC. It was a pain to get out and put clothes on. And I have it on tape, https://youtu.be/JSgd2vM2_jc?t=96 🤣
Let's kick the temperature difference a little bit higher? How about entering the 300 Club? 🤣🤣🤣
Iceland should tick three boxes off your list: snow ✔️, beaches (black sand!) ✔️ and northern lights!
Difficult answer but:
I'd go with the following:
1. New Zeeland, preferably with a helicopter to the places where they shot Lord of the Rings.
2. Iceland during a northern light. Even though I'm from Sweden I never saw a really clear one. Iceland seems like a great place to see it first
3. Hawaii, the relaxed island vibe seems great
4. One of the Caribbean islands, perfect beaches and crystal clear water sounds like a nice vacation
Last month there were northern lights visible across half of Poland, sadly the sky was rather cloudy. Seems like I'll need to travel somewhere above the Polar Circle to see this phenomenon after all 🤔
This is a good one ! 😎
Still waiting for the opportunity to visit Lapland and ride a dog sled
And definitely will want to visit again:
Now I really need a vacation 🍸
I love to travel, and out of many places I want to go, I chose three places.
1. Montreal, Canada🇨🇦
My daughter was studying abroad in 2019 at McGill University in Montreal. She often told me about the charm of Montreal, which is called the "Paris of North America."
2. New York Yankees Stadium
I like baseball, so it's a place I'd like to visit once.⚾
3. Grand Canyon
It happened in 1996 when I visited the United States🇺🇸 on my honeymoon. My wife and I flew from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon on a small plane🛩. However, due to bad weather⛈, we were unable to land at the airport and the plane turned back, which was very disappointing.😞 It's been a long time since then, but I hope to visit the Grand Canyon one day.
In a nutshell...
I would love to go everywhere and see everything! 😅🤣
My personal top 5 places :
2. New Zealand
My list in no particular order:
We are going back to Slovakia in about a month and will be flying into Austria. Maybe we will have some time to visit the beauty of Austria 🙂
Seems like you're having a outstanding passion for Europe, Chad!
How about visiting any of the Dynatrace offices in Austria? Vienna, Linz, Graz, or Innsbruck, for example? 😀
Oh boy, so many great options listed above! So many destinations I'd like to see one day 🙈
But if I had to come up with a list:
1. Norway - the last country in Scandinavia I'm yet to visit. I'm so fond of Sweden and Denmark, no doubt that I will love Norway too!
2. Iceland. Seems like such a magical place, with black sands, blue ice and northern lights 😍
3. USA: would love to have an opportunity to go on a road trip all over the states one day, to hike in as many national parks as possible, and see some locations from the movies as well.
4. Japan. From stories and videos I've seen, it's another world! Such a different culture that I'd love to dive in!
5. Madagascar. For the name itself (and the cartoon 😉), but I'm sure there will be lots of amazing stuff to see and experience as well.
My bucket list:
Some of the favorite places I already visited are Thailand and Scotland.
Still on the bucket list:
So many more for the latter list, can't mention them all 🙂
Yes, it's ~7h by train so not really sure why I haven't made it yet🙈
Thanks will pick you up on that when I finally make it 🙂
It's tricky to choose, but here are the places I'd love to see:
Such a solid selection, I can add all of these positions to my list as well!
Hi @derick_hewetson this is a lovely trekking at the end of the world .
Very difficult to choose only five: 😉
1. 🇮🇹 See the Stromboli volcano again but in this case at night,
2. 🇵🇹 Island of Madeira
3. 🇮🇸 Iceland
4. 🇺🇸 Route66
5. 🇦🇪 Dubai Aura Skypool
Regarding Skypools, I personally would love to see one day Marina Bay in Singapore, even more exiting views guaranteed!
Places I want to visit
6. Hawaii (been there already but want to keep going back)
