Greece Athens Jo Basley About Us Team Top Three Ttctopthree 2021

Never has a new year began with such hope.

I am excited for the roll-out of a vaccine that can help heal the world and aid the devastating impact of shutting down and staying apart on families, healthcare workers, the hospitality and travel industry, and countless small businesses. My hope is for my kids to get back into school, see their friends and their teachers, and not fear leaving the house. Together, I hope that we can make a positive change for good as we slowly and safely venture to the new normal. And I hope that every passing day is a day closer to when we can get back to what we love…travel and spending time together with friends old and new.

Looking forward to seeing you on the road, 

Jo

Like many of you, I’ve spent the past ten months thinking of where I want to go when I can travel again. My 2021 #TTCTOP3 is a mix of a much-loved favorite and a couple of places my family and I want to visit. If my bucket list whets your appetite for adventure, share yours with us on any of our social channels! 

Greece

Sunset on Mykonos Island, Greece

My husband and I love Greece. We love the history, the people, the food, the way of life and the beautiful islands. We have so many fun memories of our times spent exploring and can’t wait to go back, this time with our kids. The thought of a week or two spent on the idyllic islands of Santorini and Mykonos seems like the perfect remedy for the soul. Now we just need to decide between the 10-day Greek Island Hopper or the 14-day Treasures of Greece and the Islands.

Vietnam

Since lock-down began, we’ve spent hundreds of hours traveling around the globe thanks to shows like Somebody Feed Phil, Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown and No Reservations, and Padma Lakshmi’s Taste the Nation. The result? My husband has spent the past 10 months teaching himself how to perfect the art of Asian cuisine after being inspired by these amazing shows. And Vietnam has been catapulted up to spot two on our bucket list. The shortlist: 12-day Highlights of Vietnam and the 13-day Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia and the Mekong.

USA's National Parks

Hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

I’m ashamed to say that despite the many wonderful countries and destinations I have visited over the years, I have yet to experience the epic wonders that are on our doorstep in the USA. Living in the Pacific North West we have amazing hiking trails, breath-taking forests, and coastlines that we enjoy. But we all really want to experience Bryce Canyon, Zion, Yellowstone, Arches National Park and see Mount Rushmore in all its glory in person. The perfect pick for my National Parks bucket list adventure is the 15-day Scenic Parks Explorer.
