I am a firm believer that it’s the journey that makes the travel, and not the destination. I’d even go as far as sounding maybe philosophical, saying that happiness can almost never be found on a map, but it needs to be carried with you to the place you’re headed to. The arrival can in fact sometimes even signal the end of a meaningful journey, rather than the final goal. …But sometimes there are exceptions. Sometimes destinations can make a difference, and other times change you. Have so much of an impact on you that you’d never forget them and the experience they offered. So here is my share, from my heart to yours, a list of must-see’s for the next year. The best of the best travel destinations for 2019.
Best travel destinations for 2019 that might change your life
First on my line of best travel destinations for 2019 is Namibia, who is generally expected to be a popular destination for the incoming year for all lovers of the luxury lifestyle. I have rarely found landscapes as impressive and breath-taking as the ones in Namibia.
Always a top destination for lovers of nature and peace. Its most remote parts are almost untouched and truly a break-free from the stress of society. Moreover, you might want to visit the newly renovated Wanuskewin Heritage Park and make yours a luxury travel.
For a similar break-free, although in a much more exotic and wild style, Zambia is one of the best travel destinations for 2019. This, regardless of whether you are interested in a luxurious safari experience as at the one at Extraordinary Journeys… or in a peaceful encounter with primal nature. Truly a must-see.
Stockholm and Copenhagen
Capitals of Scandi Design although for different reasons, these two are must-see’s destinations in 2019. Whether it’s to visit Stockholm Fashion and Design Week, or a luxury travel to the outstanding eco-design ski-destination called CopenHill.

Italy would obviously not be off this list, especially as Southern Italian city Matera will be wearing its crown of 2019 European Capital of Culture. Outstanding and unique hotels such as the Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita have been inaugurated for the occasion, transforimg the city typical and characterising caves into an original luxury travel destination.
Japan is a top destination for many, undoubtedly. As it offers the perfect mixture of hectic city life and relaxing, tropical peacefulness. The Seto Naikai, for example, has always been a region with few visitors and long known to be an antidote for stress. A good solution would be a luxurious yacht trip on the Japanese Inland Sea.
