A couple of weeks ago I compiled my European Travel Bucket List of all the places I want to visit and re-visit in Europe. But obviously my travel wanderlust doesn’t stop there, I want to see the whole world! (Well a fair bit of it anyway).
So today I have put together a little list of some of the places across this beautiful planet of ours that I would like to see one day…
I absolutely need to see the Northern Lights at least once in my life, and I’d love to go to that famous geothermal natural pool!
- The Maldives
It’s probably the ultimate place for luxury beach resorts and I need to experience that kinda luxury at some point, maybe I should start saving for a honeymoon treat?
Despite being very technologically advanced and modern Japan is such a completely different country in terms of way of life to the UK so it would be interesting to see how they live and the bright lights of Tokyo! I’d also love to see the beautiful blossom trees. And obviously Mulan was my favourite Disney film so I’d have to see where she came from, I mean it’s a must right? I’ve got to see if I can raise Mushu from the spirit world to help me on my adventures! (Non-Disney fans must be thinking I’ve totally lost it now)
It’s a bit bladdy far away but it’s got to be seen hasn’t it, Bondi Beach, Ayers Rock, Sydney Harbour Bridge and so much more. The only thing is I’d need some sort of spider forcefield around me because I couldn’t not deal with some of the beasts they have lurking around every corner!
- New Zealand
Pretty much everyone I know who has been travelling has said New Zealand was their favourite place, so naturally I need to find out what the fuss is all about. Also, my mum is currently enjoying her second trip there, take me with you next time!
- African Safari
Although the idea scares me, I have always wanted to go on an African Safari to see the animals in their natural habitat. I’m such a huge fan of the zoo so it would be awesome to see the animals out in the wild!
I need to hit up those beautiful sands of Cancun and see the ancient Mayan ruins!
I imagine myself like Carrie Bradshaw dashing through the market in my huge dress and inappropriate footwear (yes I know that was set in Abu Dhabi, but you catch my drift), all super glam. I don’t think it would actually be quite like that but I’d love to wander through the markets and stay in a beautiful palm tree, tile-lined oasis.
- Russia – Moscow & St Petersburg
You can blame this one on my love for the movie Anastasia.
Everyone goes here. Everyone. I need to be one of those everyones at some point. See what all the hype is about.
Blame this one on my love for TOWIE and browsing the Daily Mail. Come on, we all do it right?
I’ve been to Barbados and wasn’t completely sold, so it would be cool to check out another Caribbean island to see how it measures up.
Gotta love those retro cars.
- The Bahamas
If you’re around my age, you’ll know why I want to go here. 4 words. Holiday In The Sun. ‘Buff said. Mary-Kate & Ashley were the original style idols of my tween years, wherever they went, I need to go.
And a couple I would love to see again…
- Canada – Alberta & British Columbia. I went on a road trip holiday with my parents for my mum’s 50th birthday back when I was 15, and I spent the majority of the holiday in the hotel room or the car, refusing to get out because in my words ‘I’ve seen one tree and a mountain, why do I need to see any more?’ Oh how wrong I was! This holiday is probably one of my biggest regrets because I completely wasted the experience with my sullen teenager-ishness. I would love to go back and do it all again to soak it all in properly.
- The Caribbean. Back in 2011 me and my mum spent a week in Barbados, and then a week travelling around the Caribbean islands on a whistle stop tour. We had just one day each in St Lucia, St Martin/St Maarten, St Thomas, Puerto Rico & St Kitts. Definitely not enough to explore all there is to see. Again, it would be great to go back and spend more time in several of these places and see what they really have to offer. Top of my list would be St Lucia.
You may notice I haven’t included anywhere from the USA on this ol’ bucket list of mine, I figured there’s so many places I’d love to see and re-visit in this awesome country that I would dedicate a whole post to it! Although I do realise that I have used a picture of the USA at the top of this post, I couldn’t find any of my Caribbean pictures to use so that one will have to do I’m afraid. So expect to see another bucket list from me in a couple of weeks in the form of the great states of America!
Have you been to any of these places? Or are there any you would recommend going to that I haven’t mentioned?
