29 Places We’re Dying To See In 2013

Statistically speaking, there’s a pretty good chance that one of your New Year’s resolutions is to travel more — and better. However, promising it is one thing, and committing to actually jumping on a plane is quite another…especially when you're not the sort of person who's apt to shell out a ton of hard-earned cash for some canned, all-inclusive, Spring Break '04-type vacation.
