If there’s one thing I love more than discovering extraordinary travel experiences, it’s sharing them.

Wondering where to go next? Your next big adventure may be closer than you think. Check out my suggestions for travel in the new year in the article: Adventure Beyond the Obvious in 2012

Better yet, share your own suggestions using the ‘post a comment’ link below.
