I've always wondered where other people travel to since the destinations I like are pretty much off the beaten path.
I'm not a fan of packaged tours or things sold by cruise-ship companies. Neither does the idea of travelling to an exotic beach appeal to me.
Out of my own curiosity, I researched the top destinations visited by Canadians.
According to Statistics Canada data, Canadians took almost 20 million overnight trips to the United States in 2010.
Next was Mexico with 1.4 million overnight trips
Cuba and the U.K. were next, followed by the Domincan Republic.
Based on the research that I saw, countries like Japan, Thailand, and Colombia—which are globally trendy—were not on the list.
I guess I might the only person under a tent in Chile, satisfying my thirst for the exotic while hearing my husband grumble that there's no Starbucks around.
