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 .
When heading from Tokyo to Nagoya on the Tokaido Shinkansen🚅, you can see Mt. Fuji🗻 on the right side of the direction of travel, and on the left side when heading from Nagoya to Tokyo. But only when the weather is fine🌤.
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)
Well, this one's hard... because when you live in a place as beautiful as Palmela, you don't even dream of going out 😅
Whenever we go out and then return, there's no words to describe the feeling of seeing our amazing Castle appearing on the horizon... that's when you know you're home ❤️
However, I do have some places I would like to visit (even knowing I will be homesick for the duration of the trip 😂 ).
Some of them I see already here on the list, but here goes:
You hit it right with the topic of the thread in my person's case 😁
I just returned from a month-long motorcycle trip through southern Europe with my fiancée. We rode without having a plan for the whole trip and how much time we would spend in a particular place. If we liked it we would stop for a longer period of time, and otherwise we would escape further even on the same day (as we did in Ksiamil (Albania)). We tried local cuisines, slept in strange places, helped with Parma ham production and in the olive grove. We didn't think about anything related to work and everyday life. Back to the days of school vacations and carefree days.
Below is the route of our trip:
Next year we are planning the same one-month trip only in India. And this year still a mass of shorter and longer trips combined with remote work - eh too bad we already have a lack of available vacation 🙂
PS: For the trip I packed as a spare Dynatrace socks (it turned out that I didn’t do laundry beforehand xD). Special motorcycle socks didn't make it and were terribly uncomfortable. My everyday choice was just DT socks. Send me more of them because they are awesome for a motorcycle - I don't know how this is possible, but it is xD
That's an amazing experience! I'm dreaming about a similar road trip to explore Balkans, in my case in the meantime I want to include Romania, Bulgaria, Northern Macedonia, Albania, and Montenegro. I have a prepared map for that journey, waiting for a proper time 😄
I recommend it - you can get an amazing break from work, etc. If you would like I can share a more detailed route 😉
Hehehe no problem! Catch them 🙂
That's not a bike. That's a spaceship!!!
My wife is pushing me to replace my current uncomfortable hard choper for a big trail, as we had in past (Tiger 800 xRX). Let's see, one day...
You can always have two 😎 thank you - problem solved 😂
The new Triumphs are great!
Love the pics (and the socks :D)!
