There is a wonderful plug-in called Dream Afar on Chrome. It is (ironically) categorized under "Productivity" in the Chrome Store, but has essentially turned each "New Tab" I open into a new Destination in my travel bucket-list.
Each time I open up a new tab I get to "explore the world" (eyes-only). I also often click the destination links on the bottom left, and find myself reading a Wikipedia article about the location pictured...productivity be damned. There is one caveat though...your travel bucket-list may get just a *leetle* bit long. Oh and it gives you the time, the weather, and a handy-dandy search bar
