Top Travel destinations for 2014

CNN dissects some of major travel destinations for 2014. If you need some inspiration for your 2014 holidays – check it out.

The Panama Canal will celebrate it's 100th birthday. I plan to be there next year and see it finally.

Obviously the World Cup in Brazil will be a major draw. Just expect huge price tags for hotel rooms and tickets. Brazil already is pretty expensive due to its overvalued currency.

The article also makes mention of Ecuador becoming a tourism powerhouse – from what I could gather in the last 2 weeks in South America it's more Bolivia that is making big headways in becoming a powerful tourist destination.

Japan has become surprisingly affordable these days – so it's definitely worth a repeat visit!

Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya have implemented a new visa regime that makes it possible to see all 3 countries (for gorilla trekking) from on January 2014. This is certainly on my list for 2014.
