Yesterday I outlined five new countries I hope to visit in 2019. Today, I outline five places I wish to visit in countries that I have already visited.
The world is complex and some places most consider separate countries are actually not separate countries but autonomous or semi-autonomous parts of another country. This year there are five such places I hope to travel to.
Faroe Islands (Denmark)
Lhasa, Tibet (China)
Lhasa is intriguing from a geopolitical perspective. This Chinese-held territory requires special permission to visit, though it has loosened up a bit from previous years. I’ve always wanted to visit Potala Palace.
Saint Pierre and Miquelon (France)
Technically part of France, I’ve been wanting to visit this territory for more than six years. With service to Paris on Air Saint-Pierre again returning this year, I hope to actually visit this year.
I hope to take my wife on a child-free 4-5 day getaway. United is now serving Tahiti year-around so I would fly one direction on United and one on Air Tahiti Nui (hopefully without my nightmare coming to fruition).
In many respects, these places are higher on my bucket list than the five countries I outlined yesterday. Even so, we’ll see whether times permits a visit to any of these places in 2019.
Where do you want to visit in 2019?
