#Travelgoals for 2016
We take a look at the most instagrammed and tagged destinations of 2015 to put together our #TRAVELGOALS for 2016
1. New York, New York City - Times Square
If you’ve been already, 2016 is your year to take a big from the Big Apple. Times Square is must for tourist purposes, but get in and get out, then check out the veritable fruit bowl that is NYC!
2. Paris, France - Tour Eiffel

Paris needs you love more than even in 2016. There really is no place on earth like this French capital, and nothing more quintessential than a shot of you and the Eiffel Tower. Remember, Paris is always a good idea.
3. London, England - Tower Bridge
Not be confused with ‘London Bridge’, Tower Bridge is a treasure. Walk or ride a bike over the bridge and take in the Thames. Check out the Crown Jewels are nearby Tower of London, then pop over to cool neighbourhood of Bermondsey for a craft pint in a gastropub.
4. Moscow, Russia - Red Square
I don't have my iPhone any more... But thanks for iCloud I still can brag around with the wonderful pic my bro made for me at the wonderful place in Russia, my proud of Moscow beauty, one of my favorite places #Redsquare :-) #iloverussia A photo posted by Daria Arkhipova (@youngrunawaysemioticsandwich) on
Russia guys, the white whale for every world traveller! Make 2016 the year you tick the Kremlin off your must-see list.
5. Los Angeles, US - Dodger Stadium
What’s more baller than Dodger Stadium? Literally nothing. Nothing is more baller. Go there.
6. Istanbul, Turkey - İstiklal Caddesi
Istanbul has been the quiet achiever for some time now and finally getting the kudos it deserves as one of the most interesting cities in Europe, with an exotic mix of East and West and ancient cultures.
7. Sao Paulo, Brazil - Parque Ibirapuera
Brazil is hot on everyone’s lips for 2016 – why? The OLYMPICS, duh! But Rio’s southern sister, Sao Paolo is fast becoming a talked-about destination too, with its arts and design cred and the sprawling urban park that is Ibirapuera.
8. Amsterdam, Netherlands – Vondelpark
Where better to (legally) smoke a doobie and lay your head in the grass (literally and metaphorically). Amsterdam wins on all counts.
9. Barcelona, Spain - Park Güell
Got to love a bit of Gaudi. Barcelona is a super-fun city for food and nightlife, but it’s love for architecture makes it a city bursting at the seams with things to do and see all day and night. The trek up to Park Güell is a definite highlight.
10. San Francisco, US - Golden Gate Bridge
This Doyle closure got me feelin' like... #FeatureFriday @brittmacm #Belated #RideorDie A photo posted by Golden Gate Bridge (@golden_gate_bridge) on
It’s a pretty damn iconic bridge, with so many vantage points; hike up Battery Spencer or Fort Point; get that beach swept view from Marshall Beach; see it from the water on a boat tour around the bay, or from Alcatraz Island. But nothing beats driving over the bridge or better yet, cycling!

Croatia's best kept secret (hint - there's no beach)
Most of us have swooned over photos of Hvar’s pristine bays; have dreamt of days shucking oysters and partying under the stars in Dubrovnik; and have made an enquiry or two into the partying sun storm that is Yacht Week.
Killer views in US national parks
We all know that the USA can get a bit carried away boasting all things ‘bigger’ and ‘better’, but when it comes to the epic natural scenery, they’ve really nailed it. Enormous parts of the nation are protected under national park status, preserving their unique features.
