There are two types of vacations.
The ones we take once or twice a year to recharge and reconnect with those close to us — maybe a quick getaway to a resort somewhere hot or a road trip to Disney with the kids.
Then there are the ones you spend your whole life dreaming about, whether it’s a luxury African safari or a road trip down Italy’s Mediterranean coast.
The latter is the inspiration behind TripAdvisor’s new list of 10 trips of a lifetime, compiled based on user votes.
Warning: Seasoned travelers will scoff at some of the picks.
