  • South America: Bucket list bliss awaits here with some big hitters to visit including Machu Picchu, Iguazu Falls, Rio Carnival and the Galapagos Islands.
  • Canada and the US: A road trip through these two countries should be the top of your list. From sprawling National Parks to big buzzing cities, you can fill a whole year of travel here and not cover every corner.
