Go sailing in Turkey
Soak up the sun and sea air, make new friends, jump off the boat into azure waters and make a literal and metaphorical splash in 2013.
Let loose at Carnival in Rio de Janeiro
For a street party to end all street parties, be in Rio de Janeiro in February for some colour-covered fun.
All those vibrant colours, swished and swirled like a painting across the sky – it’ll be the prettiest thing you see all year.
Do everything in New York
The city has literally everything, so try and do it all while you’re there. When it comes to experiencing New York - you go hard or you go home. Make the most of every moment and try and stay for at least two weeks to get the most out of your time.
Volunteer at an orphanage in Cambodia
For one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, help those less fortunate on your travels by volunteering at an orphanage in Cambodia. By just having fun and playing games with the kids there, you can really make a difference.
Celebrate Queen’s Day in Amsterdam
Queen’s Day in Amsterdam this year is going to be BIG. 2013 marks the 400th anniversary of the city’s beloved canals, so everyone’s going to be keen for a party and orange outfit.
Fall in love in Spain
It’s a scientific fact that pretty much everyone in Spain is good looking. Team that sexy fact with salsa dancing and sangria and you’re pretty much guaranteed to have a good time in Spain.
Go on safari in Nairobi
For an exhilarating adventure like no other, join a G Adventures safari from Nairobi to Zanzibar and track the Big Five across the Serengeti.
Party in Iceland
Reykjavik in particular is where you’ll find all the party times – excellent! Time you’re visit to the third week in October for the city’s amazing annual Iceland Airwaves music festival. This year’s line up already includes Friends, Purity Ring and The Vaccines.
Kick back and do nothing in Bali
And oldie but a goodie. When life gives you lemons, throw them back and head to Bali for some serious R&R. We have plenty of cheap Bali packages too so last minute getaways are more than possible.
Sushi, skiing, sake and late night karaoke sessions – where do I sign?
See your favourite band play in London
Literally every awesome band ever is playing in London next year. From the Rolling Stones to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Sigur Ros, Bloc Party, Kaiser Chiefs, Pet Shop Boys, Green Day… even One Direction will be putting on some shows if shiny boy bands and screaming girls are you thing.
Go on the ultimate road trip wherever you are
Can’t afford a plane ticket? Why not grab a bunch of mates and set off on a road trip. Whether it’s just a day trip or a week-long adventure, take some time to get out there, see some new things and make some 2013 memories.
