    I have to say Bolivia was one of my favorite destinations ever. I went solo years ago and have always talked about going back. Now Tonga looks like paradise for sure.

    I’m dying to go to Nunavut. It’s so hard to get to, even when you live in Canada, that most people don’t make the journey.

    Some of these look fantastic. We love to find off the beaten path activities when we travel- it would be awesome to just go to an entirely off the beaten path destination for a trip!!

    I have been to 2 of these… Brunei and Bolivia. Brunei is definitely a great off-the-beaten-track destination – so quiet, very few tourists and lots of interesting sites to explore. We would LOVE to visit Tonga… looks incredible.
