Af Trine Søgaard

Short trips

The choice between all the different destinations

The rain whips against the window while the wind shakes the trees. Autumn has left the country. The familiar, biting cold and darkness descends. A woman on the street pulls the scarf up around her ears, and crosses the road with an absent expression on her face.

Maybe she, like me, has already forgotten the hot summer months and not least the deciduous summer that stretched far into October. Suddenly the winter seems extra long and unmanageable.

And there it is. The feeling that announces its arrival every single year at this time. The exile. The burning desire to travel and experience far away from rain and cold. And I know I'm far from the only one.

But where in the world do you start? Where is the best place to go? And what really makes one destination better than another? Everyone probably has their own favorite destination, which is based on preferences, experiences and memories, just like I have.

I know the Travelers' Club came up with their bid the best destinations, where New Zealand ranked highest followed by Iran. But just as opinions and preferences can change, so can countries and places, right?

I therefore lean on Lonely Planet, which has come up with their bid on which destinations are worth visiting in 2019. In addition, the travel guide has just voted the best city of the year, where the award went to København. So if you are in doubt about where to start, a trip around the capital will no doubt be a great place to start.
