The travel and tourism industry is one of the worlds largest industries with a global economic contribution of over $7.6 trillion in just 2016. Most people have a bucket list of the places they'd like to go, but some end up disappointed when they get there.
So Reddit user Ohmygodashoppinglist asked:

Yosemite National Park in California. Everything was super sized and beautiful. Hiking in a normal local park, even if it has mountains and waterfalls, just feels small now. speaklouderpls
Prague. It was like a metropolitan medieval town. Mr_Abe_Froman
Kauai, Hawaii Alaskadaughter
-The Inari Gates (Kyoto, Japan)
-The Akihabara arcade district in Tokyo

Edinburgh in the Christmas season. It was magical. LesbianSansa
I went there this July so in the middle of their winter and it was autumnal. I walked up to Roy's Peak and went hiking on a glacier and if it was summer I could have gone surfing in the same day. pully89
I felt like no matter which direction I looked it was like a picture from a postcard. PlaidAvenger
The Pacific Rim National Park, British Columbia, Canada. It's a temperate rainforest with huge trees that are hundreds of years old. jusper50

Arthur's seat in Edinburgh Scotland. Incredible climb for an incredible view of the country. Nicadelphia
The view from the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town. It was like a vision of eternity. No photograph could possibly show how how beautiful that view is. pogothecat
Endless nature, giant pretty mountains, drinkable see-through water, so many rocks to jump on, very few people in sight. Klogavis

When in doubt.... be a Karen! LOL
We've all seen them and at times we may have been one A KAREN! You know who that is.... a difficult person, that's describing it politely. Karen's make scenes and do all that is necessary to get anything and everything their way. Working in any form of a service job, Karens are your worst nightmare.
Redditor u/externalodyssey wanted to hear from everybody about their Karen encounters by asking.... Managers of Reddit - what is a Karen experience like ? What was you worst experience ?
