Spin the dial, think outside the box, the world is your oyster.
India, the Palace on Wheels and the  Elephanta Caves to start.,  The  mysteries of this land of contrasts.  The sights and smells are so symbolic.  Tour the soaring temples, experience the Taj Mahal at sunset and sunrise.

NEW ORLEANS    
The word beignet (pronounced ben-YAY) comes from the early Celtic word bigne meaning “to raise.” It is also French for “fritter.” Beignets, a specialty, are fried, raised pieces of yeast dough, usually about 2 inches in diameter or 2 inches square. 
World-renowned for its distinct music, Creole cuisine, unique dialect, and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The historic heart of the city is the French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and vibrant nightlife along Bourbon Street. 
There are probably a thousand reasons to visit New Orleans, as it's one of the most eccentric, vibrant cities in the world.  
 
ALASKA, by rail, boat or plane this is a spectacular destination. The Alaskan coastline extends for 6,640 miles, a distance greater than that of all the other states coastlines combined. This rugged landscape on the Alaska coast is unlike any other place on earth. Home to rich deposits of Ice Age fossils and unique geothermal features like Serpentine Hot Springs. Then there is the iconic national Denali National Park home to North America's tallest peak – 20,310-foot Mount Denali. This vast 6 million-acre wilderness also harbors abundant wildlife in a landscape that ranges from lush forests to harsh alpine tundra, hiking trails, wildlife viewing,mushing and snowmobiling. Anchorage boasts  an extraordinary museum, we saw 
Chihuly's baskets displayed with the baskets he had used for inspiration.  The show was amazing.  There is always something special around each corner. 
The wonders of South Africa never cease to amaze.  Elephants are so protective of their families and from the sheer size they govern the sanctuaries.  Kruger has no shortage of the big five and Botswana rivals that claim.  Botswana wildlife is much more driven by the waters of the Okavango Delta, so you a few of each animal, not the numbers you so frequently find in Kruger.
