@HolidayExtras: What motivates you to step out of your comfort zone and discover new destinations?
@turkuk: I travel to convince myself I live in a big planet called “The World”, not in a little bubble called “Home” @LaViajadora: Being able to make connections with other people and learning about their culture motivates me @OpenAfricaOrg: The knowledge that knowing once out of our comfort zone, the experiences will be life-changing. This is the ONLY way to travel @candancept: A well written article, recommendation from a friend or blogger, but I always stick to intuition. Some places just call my name
@hilarisortoleva: Curiosity and that feeling of adventure
@lethers: The taste of adventure definitely, cultural diversity, new experiences… The list could go on but anything new @LoveSilverDoor: To travel is experience! You must pack as many experiences into life as possible! So, stepping out of your comfort zone is a must
@dmelloalan: A life less explored is a life less lived
@ephemerratic: Where have you visited that is unappreciated and should be on everyone’s list?
@dealchecker: New Zealand. It’s a popular destination, but the country is so beautiful that more people should visit
@FloraBaker: Not many people head to the Baltics, but Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia have gorgeous towns and friendly locals – and they’re cheap @earthXplorer: Montreal – very cool city @missmzungu: The Plitvice Lakes in Croatia are definitely worth a visit
@25travels: My home country, the Philippines, is often underrated compared to SE Asia countries
@trvlwithmelissa: Namibia Africa is way under rated
@zwei2go: Curaçao. It is a beautiful island, the food is great, and the people are gracious
@katieaune: Georgia (the country) and western Ukraine @BespokeTravels: Edinburgh. A lot to discover in a tiny city
@discoverusaca: What destination will never go out of style and why?
@MzansiGirl: South Africa, its just so diverse – wildlife, culture, beaches, history, icons, adventure. You can just keep coming back for more
@inga_ros: Dubrovnik. Hasn’t changed for the past few hundred years and probably won’t change too much in the future @Miss_Starling: Rome, it’s the eternal city. So classy and beautiful
@OnTheRoadToYou: Sydney, London, New York, Hong Kong. Because they are the main hubs where people congregate @Travel_Rich: Bangkok. So often a backpackers first destination. Will always be crazy @WanderTheMap: Paris-always one of my favorites-it’s such a beautiful city, lots of culture/history, amazing food, and so much to do
@RobertKCole: What up and coming destination do you want kept a secret?
@MalloryOnTravel: Love Oman, beautiful country, lovely people, great diversity
@Intrepid_Travel: Can we keep Burma a secret for just a little longer – so much to see before it’s overrun @tamvyn: Montenegro…shhh…don’t get too touristy before I have a chance to visit please @lowcostholidays: The island of Hvar in Croatia. Take a boat to some of the secluded islands and relax..Shhh
@BurnsTammy: Cuba. I worry that if/when the US embargo lifts, it’ll be all Americanized and lose its charm @anuragamuffin: While all flock to Goa’s beaches, Dudhsagar waterfalls is a hidden gem! It is Goa’s best kept secret @NicoleTravelBug: I really think Slovenia and Slovakia are going to be hot in 2013. Both have stunning scenery @LandLopers: It’s been big for budget travelers for a while, but more mainstream are starting to visit Laos. Great place, but don’t tell
