LONDON, Dec. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite the scope of predictions already being made on what 2012 will hold, with everything from uncertainty in the economy and the end of the European experiment, to end of the world as a whole if you listen to the predictions of the ancient Maya, none of them paint a particularly rosy picture. To counter this and propose an alternative, Tucan Travel is declaring 2012 the Year of Adventure.
There is no doubt that 2011 was a year of big change in the world, from devastating natural disasters to financial upheaval and revolutionary change. What is also true is that no one can be certain of what 2012 will bring. But during this uncertain time there is also opportunity, opportunity for travellers to go on the adventure of a lifetime, wherever in the world that might be.
Tucan Travel has come a long way as a company, offering other travellers a genuine travel experience. And this year will see the company turn 25. To celebrate preparations are underway to make it their biggest and most exciting year yet.
So as the new year approaches, why not forget any of the doom and gloom you might have heard for 2012; the year will be what you make of it. Why not make it a Year of Adventure?
Tucan Travel's 2012 hot spots
Colombia -- This beautiful yet still enigmatic corner of South America is in the forefront of many people's minds at the moment, and as an up-and-coming destination is absolutely bursting with adventure opportunities.
The Balkans -- This under-explored region of Eastern Europe is far too often overlooked by travellers in search of a genuine adventure. From the rugged peaks and stunning bays of Montenegro down to the long, rock and pine covered coastline of Croatia with its hundreds of islands walled cities, to the rich cultural heritage of both Bosnia and Serbia, there is so much to explore in this region as it emerges from its recent history.
Central America -- Much has been made of certain readings of the ancient Maya calendar that the world will end this year. Despite the questionable validity of such claims, this fascinating civilization did leave behind many mysterious and astonishing ruins, deep in a lush jungle setting.
