Where to Go in 2013?

It is the beginning fo the year, and that means its the time when fancy travel magazines, books and blogs make predictions of what are the new places, or popular places to visit in 2013. I’ve rounded up some of the ones that generate the most buzz here. I find this interesting basically because it gives me fun ideas for trips, and some inspiration for my “where am I travelling next” brainstorms. It also points me in places I might not want to go, as I know they are going to start becoming more crowded. Some common trends: Amsterdam seems to be up there in a lot, as well as Marseille, New Zealand and the Philippines. Do check out the links for some beautiful pictures in the articles, they are quite inspiring!
