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:

"Travelers of Reddit, what place DID live up to the hype?"

Here are their recommendations.

Ireland

Ireland. People were beyond friendly and it was like a jolly pub celebration complete with trad every night.  lifeisbeautiful88

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

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

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous.

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
