Travel is about discovering what we find stimulates us in our down time. Leisure activities have become increasingly a part of our journey when searching for destinations. Here are some travel and leisure destinations for 2016 we discovered on our very own personal quest to explore the world around us.Iberá Wetlands, ArgentinaArgentina is home to the world's second largest wetlands. An amazing place to see giant anteater, giant otter, pampas deer and red macaw. This is the heart of an intensive repopulation program led by Kristine and Doug Tompkins’ Conservation Land Trust backed by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. You can choose to stay at eco-lodges such as Puerto Valle  and explore this northern sector by kayak, horseback or 4 x 4. A great destination for those interested in wetlands, wildlife and preservation programs.Travel & Leisure destinations 2016 | NQ LondonGeorgia (former Soviet Republic)Georgia is situated in the Caucasus region Eurasia. The crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe. Five years ago our founder was lucky enough to travel here. Kakheti is the top winemaking region for vineyard tours and exceptional tastings. The buzz has started about Georgia and the country is about to get an influx of visitors interested in more than just wine. Batumi is home to one of the largest botanical gardens. Tblisi, the capital, is home to varied architecture of Persian, Soviet and Art Nouveau influences. Major hotel brands are breaking ground here, such as Radisson Blu, opening in Kakheti’s Tsinandali village. Le Méridien has plans to open in a few years. You can add in some action adventure and go white water rafting as our founder did on her trip, only an hour from Tblisi. To top it you'll have breathtaking views of the Caucasus Mountains.Travel & Leisure destinations 2016 | NQ LondonWalesTravelling doesn't necessarily mean heading far and wide. Sometimes the best things are closer than we think. Exploring closer to home can be just as exciting and even satisfy thrill seekers. Last year saw the opening of a range of attractions, including the world’s first subterranean trampoline park and the world’s largest subterranean zipline course. Wales’ natural charms have long drawn outdoorsy mountain climbers to take in the Brecon Beacons and Mount Snowdon. Hikers  are spoilt especially with the Coast Path, which opened in 2012 and runs the entire length of the 870-mile coast.  Surfers  are particularly attracted around the verdant Gower Peninsula. Wales has also benefitted from the famous summer inhabitant of the island St. Tudwal West. Bear Grylls has done a lot for improving the image and possibly the perfect ambassador for the outdoor adventure enthusiast.Travel & Leisure destinations 2016 | NQ LondonIf you'd like to arrange a tailor made holiday, a great service is offered by Emma Turner www.travelcounsellors.co.uk/emma.turnerMake your travels no ordinary journey.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
