My “Wanderlust Wish List”! My 2020 Adventure Travel Goals From Around The World!

Got A Case Of Wanderlust?

2020 is upon us, and I have an itch to travel…to get away and discover some of the magical places around us – like this:

Yes, this “Hands Bridge” in Vietnam is now on my bucket list…in a part of the world I’ve heard is incredible and inviting…will I go this year? Not sure, but if I do, I’m walking across this bridge! You can see more about it here:

It’s just one of many things I want to do in 2020 and beyond. I am putting together my “Wanderlust Wish List”, so let’s get traveling!

Like The View?!

There are so many cool things to do in this world, like lounging on a South Seas island and watching the day drift by…

Imagine owning your own island? Yes, they go on sale all the time, all around the world!

Click here to see some of the ones I found for sale that are “paradise ready!”

Yes, I could get used to this view, but I also like to explore as well.

If you’ve got a taste for something a bit more “adventurous”, check out some of these extreme options!


Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea!

A science travel organization called Deep Ocean Expeditions has made Mir Submersibles and Deep Rover submarines available to the traveling public for rare, firsthand views of the frontier below.


underwater exploration

Imagine being taken 12,500 feet into the North Atlantic to see the wreckage of the famed Titanic! Only a handful of craft can sustain human life at such depths, the same craft that carried filmmakers to the sea floor to film James Cameron’s “Titanic”. How cool does that sound? You’ll even get to see some friends like this:


I’m not sure I’d like to be confined in this vessel, even with so many new friends to meet…instead, maybe I need to do this instead:

Mammoth-Cave spelunking


What about this “middle earth” adventure: “The Mammoth Cave National Park in central Kentucky is the longest cave system in the world, a fascinating underground world open to traveling explorers. This Unesco World Heritage Site may be a common tourist trap, but its length is open to fearless adventurers who wish to go beyond the beaten path.

Mammoth-Cave splunking

The Wild Cave Tour at Mammoth Cave takes a small group of spelunkers deep into the cave through twists, turns and tiny spaces that would inspire terror in your average tourist. If you book your own exploration, a private guide will show you the world below, exploring some of Mammoth Cave’s 365 miles of underground tunnels. If the idea of squeezing through 9-inch by 24-inch openings of deep limestone caverns excites you, you’ll be right at home in Mammoth Cave.”

Behold “Middle Earth!”

I’d love to take a walk into the center of the earth, as long as the ceilings weren’t too low!

I also want to go on a safari, if only to have breakfast with these Giraffes!

Yes, you can have breakfast with the locals! I’d love to share my eggs with some friendly Giraffes, which make this a “must see” on my “wanderlust wish list!”

See more details here:

There you go, some of the things I want to see in 2020 and beyond!

  4. I’m less adventurous than you John, so I think I’d pass on the submersible and the caves. You’ve got me with island paradises though, and I’d love to have breakfast with giraffes!😁

  5. These all look so cool. I have desire to go to Cuba, but with the current political climate, I may have to wait a bit. I want to listen to the live jazz, hit the beach, eat the local food, drink a mojito and hang w the people-

  6. I’d love to visit the giraffe hotel. I have been to Vietnam but not to the hands bridge – it’s a wonderful country and I’d go back in a heartbeat.

  7. I’m sure you will be doing something exciting this year, and I am looking forward to reading about it!
    Even though I can’t swim a stroke, I would happily go down in a submarine to see such wonders.
    Best wishes, Pete.
