My dream destinations 2019

Photo: Bali 2018

For me, each year begins not only with a list of resolutions to fulfill, but also with a large list of destinations that I’d like to visit.

When we travel, we are filled with energy, knowledge and experiences. There are always magical things when you visit a place for the first time. This year my list is quite ambitious and it will be almost impossible to travel to all these places I have in mind, but I could just settle for visiting at least half.

In 2018, my highlight trips were Bangkok and Bali. I’d been dreaming of visiting the other side of the world for years. I never understood why, but I knew that somewhere in Asia I would find my personal self. This trip was a dream fulfilled, a unique experience that helped me grow personally and professionally.

Another highlight was Cuba, despite being an almost obligatory destination for me because I visit my family and friends frequently. The island always leaves a good taste in my mouth. On each trip I enjoy getting lost in its narrow streets and I let myself be carried away by the magic of this beautiful city. You can see some of those images in our recap publication of 2 weeks ago.

This year’s list, as I mentioned earlier, is quite ambitious. While you peak at it, I’d love to know: have you visited any of these places? What tips can you share? Finally, I’d love to know what’s on your 2019 dream travel list.

India: I would love to visit India, it has been on my list for years. I think it’s a destination that every photographer dreams of visiting.

Spain: Years ago, I lived in Spain and could visit it again and again.

Italy: I’ve been to Rome, but southern Italy has always called my attention. Amalfi Coast, Capri, Naples. pasta, wine, pizza ……

Paris: I love the city of lights. I have visited Paris several times, but it is a destination that always has something new to offer you.

Cartagena: My best friend was recently there and took some beautiful photos. I’m dying to visit!!!!

Southeast Asia: I would love to go back and continue exploring. This time, I’d like to go to Singapore, Cambodia, Hanoi, Philippines.

United States: I would like to visit a National Park on the East Coast. Also, would love to go back to New York and Chicago to do take some Spring and Fall shots.
