Outside magazine can help! The periodical has posted its selection for the 2013 Travel Awards listing their favorite trips, guide services, destinations and a whole lot more.
All told, there are 42 trips on the list, providing travelers with options that range from sailing in the Marshall Islands to trekking in the Karakoram mountain range. They also offer tips on their favorite lodges, hotels and even airport bars. There is a little something here for everyone, whether you prefer your adventures on a beach, in the mountains or somewhere in between.
And after you've finished perusing all of the great travel suggestions, head on over to the Outside Facebook page and complete the What Trip Are You Quiz? By doing so between now and April 8, you'll automatically be entered to win one of five dream trips for you and a guest. Options include paddling down the Salmon River, zipping off to the rainforest of Ecuador or skiing in the Alaskan backcountry.
As for me, I'm still trying to plan my own escape for this year. I've had a couple of opportunities on the back burner, but life has kind of gotten in the way this spring. I hope to change that soon, so Outside's awards come at just as I'm considering where to go in 2013. My feet are getting itchy, the wanderlust is taking over and the world is calling. Maybe I should just spin a globe and go where my finger falls.
