My top 5 countries for 2020 

TBH there aren’t many countries I wouldn’t want to go. But, I also don’t want to just wizz around the world collecting countries with no respect to stay and hang out and explore the traditions.

A few of the countries above have just been for the day – on cruises, or tours – and there is a belief that you can’t say you’ve ‘been’ to a country unless you’ve actually stayed the night. 

It’s all fun to me. 

where to next

– Cruising the waterways of Japan

There are still so many places I’d like to go, but for 2020, here are my top choices… 

1. Jordan 

Argh, can’t believe I still haven’t been here yet!

One of my best friends is from there, and is currently living there, due to move to England any time soon so I really need to get my butt over there. I want to camp in Wadi Rum, see Petra and get stuck into some of the amazing cuisine I know they have over there. 

2. Lebanon 

Lebanon looks incredible and seems like the perfect trip to add on after Jordan. I’d love to visit Beirut and to go hiking too. 

3. Oman 

And Oman, I mean the pictures are amazing. I’d love to look around and experience the architecture for myself. It just looks like pure middle east opulence at its most incredible. I want to look round Muscat of course, but I’d also love to camp out in the sand dunes. Looks awesome. 

4. Colombia 

I’ve still never been to South America! Crazy hey. I’ve only ever been down as far as Costa Rica, in Central America. I think next year it’s time to rectify that and after watching Narcos on Netflix, I’m kinda crazy for Colombia. Anyone I know who’s been has absolutely loved it and say it’s one of the best countries to visit. I want to see for myself!

5. Peru 

And then Peru – I mean, who doesn’t want to go to Peru? The scenery is a huge draw just in itself, but what about the culture, and the food too. I just want in on all of it. 

And so, they’re my top 5 countries I want to visit in 2020.

Sounds like it’s going to be a busy year hey?

    I like that you don't just list countries, but places within the countries, and even links to posts for some. Looks like you have a lot of back-stories to write (just like me). Or was there nothing special about your time in Berlin, Amsterdam, Istanbul, ...I could go on ;)

      Hey Ian, thanks! There was definitely some special times in all the other cities – just need to write about them! One day I shall complete my to do list :)

    My, you've been to a shitload of places in Europe as well! Have to chat with you about some of these festivals you've hit up next time I see you. I've been curious about Exit in Novi Sad forever.

      Oh EXIT was brilliant! So fun and cheap, and a cool venue too. Love Europe – it's underrated by Brits, but I definitely want to see more, and go to more festivals of course.
