If one of your resolutions for 2012 was to travel more, welcome to the club. Ours too. But where? Maybe take a cue from our panel of celebrity experts, to whom we popped the question -- where are they headed over the next twelve months? A little bit of everywhere, as it turns out. Read on.
I definitely have to go back to the U.K. I see amazing people that give me a burst of life every time I go there. Every country in Africa. I want to just hit up the whole planet and then go to Mars and Venus!
I’ll be back in Africa. Also, Lake Como, one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Hawaii, to see my home. I live in Kauai. (Tahiti Nui bar is the best!)
Turkbuku in Turkey, near Bodrum, one of my favorite places. The food is amazing. The vibe is good, super relaxing.
I’ll be going to Kenya to visit Dadaab, a large refugee camp.
China: I’ve never been there, so I’m looking forward to seeing all that Beijing has to offer.

Chile -- Santiago because I was born there. Ibiza, Spain because it’s beautiful!
There’s so many places in the world I haven’t seen yet. I can’t wait to go.
Australia. Fiji, but I might have to save that -- my mom wants to go, too.
Friends of mine live on Powers Lake in Wisconsin, and it is the most beautiful, quaint, lovely place to go. It’s all families, and whenever I need that rejuvenation and that little moment to just get my head back together and get back on track, the only place I want to go is Powers Lake.
Bali. It’s peaceful, very peaceful.
Italy, one of my favorite places in the world: Florence; Rome; Orvieto for San Crispino gelato.
Rome. I love the city. I love the architecture. I love the food. I love everything about it.
Scotland. My husband is Scottish and wants to take me there. He’s been showing me pictures of green pastures, castles and the people!
Anywhere. Everywhere is fine!
Looking forward to India -- I’m planning a polo event there.
Those Down-Under countries are real nice. Would like to go to Australia and New Zealand again. Driving on the wrong side of the road is always a thrill. You say to yourself, ‘Am I gonna make it?!’
Cabo. Got married there and we haven’t had a chance to get back there.
