Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wild world.
When you spend each waking moment trying to sell travel, it becomes impossible to not get fully inspired by the vastness of new destinations and experiences out there. I’m also
so fortunate blessed to have a team of incredible and fearless travellers at Busabout that stoke up my deepest wanderlust on a daily basis. So this year I’ve created a ‘TTC Bucket List’ of all the trips I’d personally dig to jump on, drawn from some of the best travel TTC brands I’ve worked with. So pack your bags, it’s time to go.
Get ready to rave in front of the biggest names in electronic music at Tomorrowland this year with Busabout! Leave your inhibitions at the gate and prepare to have your mind blown as fireworks light up the skies, lasers cast beams across the crowd moving to the beat as one, and the rhythm unites revellers from all corners of the globe. As proud official travel partners, this July we’ll be taking you to Tomorrowland on our Hop-on Hop-off coach network. Take your Euro summer adventure to the next level with a pass to one of the biggest EDM festivals on the planet.

3. Kakadu’s Ancient Secrets
Venture to Australia’s Top End, through the untamed wilderness and wetlands of Kakadu – an ancient landscape of billabongs, gorges and hidden canyons teeming with spectacular wildlife. Embark on an Inspiring Journey to the haunt of the Lightning Man, Aboriginal clans and the mighty crocs that roam Kakadu’s floodplains.
4. Up Helly AA
Few have heard of it, let alone been. Our destination is Shetland in the far north of Scotland, where one of the most incredible festivals in Europe is held. On the last Tuesday of January, the town of Lerwick goes more than a little mad. Up Helly Aa is a lot more than a sub-arctic bonfire and booze-up. It’s a superb spectacle, a celebration of Shetland’s history and a triumphant demonstration of the islanders’ skills and spirit. Fifty helmeted Vikings and a burning Norse galley. Unmissable.
5. Tanzania: In The Footsteps of the Migration
Lion World Travel
This eight-night safari is specially designed to give guests the best chances of witnessing this remarkable phenomenon.

6. All Ireland Rocker

Seven action-packed and fun-filled days which may well turn out to be the best days of your life!
7. Cape Tribulation, Daintree & Mossman
Down Under Tours
Situated a short one hour drive north of Cairns, the awe-inspiring Daintree Rainforest is one of the oldest living rainforests on planet Earth. In fact, this natural wonder is over one hundred million years old!
As a treasure trove of natural history, the Daintree Rainforest is home to the greatest variety of animal and plant species that are considered threatened or rare.
Almost two-thirds of all bat and butterfly species in Australia and over 400 bird species call the Daintree home. Incredibly, 13 of the bird species that live in the Daintree Rainforest are not found anywhere else in the world.
8. European Discovery
I literally have a few months left before I’m officially too old to do my first Contiki! The European Discovery is an excellent trip for anyone wanting to see Europe for the first time. I’d happily relive that transformative experience that again.
9. The Danube Flow
U by Uniworld
Relax. You’re cruising on the Danube, and worries don’t exist on this fine-looking waterway. Germany, Austria or Hungary? You don’t have to choose. You’ll get to explore all three on this 8-day cruise that is part small town, part big city and all parts good times. Regensburg’s Old Town has an open- air café feel and the highest density of pubs and bars in Germany (and that’s no small feat). Austria’s Wachau Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage site if we’ve ever seen one—its Benedictine Abbey houses the most famous library in Northern Europe. Hungary’s lively capital city oﬀers double the fun, with Buda on one side and Pest on the other. And that’s just the beginning.
