As a travel writer, one of my favorite parts of the job is coming up with new and exciting places to visit. I’ve been traveling for nearly a decade now and have worked with many different travel companies and tourism boards all over the world, which has given me quite a bit of insight into where to go, when to go, how long to stay there and what you should do while you’re there. My list is always changing based on my most recent discoveries, but I thought it would be interesting to share some of my favorite spots at this very moment in time. So here are five amazing places that everyone should write down on their bucket lists.
Located off the coast of British Columbia, Haida Gwaii has been called Canada’s Galapagos thanks to its incredible wildlife. The islands are also home to a First Nations tribe that is deeply rooted in their culture, traditions and art. The combination makes for an interesting blend of nature and culture that few other places in the world can match. When you go to Haida Gwaii, be sure to visit the Tribal Park where you’ll be able to explore the totems, longhouses and other artifacts left behind by the Haida people centuries ago and learn more about their fascinating history.
You can’t call yourself a true adventurer unless you’ve been to at least one of these locations.

The island nation of Papua New Guinea has been called one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. With over 800 languages spoken, it was no surprise to find out that some communities in this country had never seen foreigners before.
While some may feel uncomfortable with such a statement, I think it’s just another reason to travel. When you go to places where tourists rarely tread, there’s a sense of adventure, as well as an opportunity to experience something truly unique as both a guest and an ambassador.
I was lucky enough to visit several remote communities across Papua New Guinea last year, including ones that had never seen foreigners before. While I can write about my experiences there until the cows come home, I highly recommend that you take the plunge and visit for yourself: these are some of the most welcoming people on Earth.
