Whenever I go on holiday I start to daydream about jacking in work and travelling the globe – I’m sure it’s not just me who does that!
Pretty much the day after we got back from Florida we were talking about where to go next – and we have plenty of places that we still want to go to.
We’re still undecided about where we will go next year (need to save some money first!) but it got us thinking about the places left on our travel bucket list.
I count myself extremely grateful that I’ve now crossed off three major places from the top of my list (Thailand, a Safari in Kenya, and Disney World) but I still have a lot of places left!
Here’s what is still left on my travel bucket list…
Absolutely at the top of my list – whenever me and the husband get annoyed with life we always say “Lets just go to Hawaii!”. I definitely want to lie in a hammock with a cocktail on a Hawaiin beach at some point in my life!
The main thing from stopping us from going Down Under is time. We can only have 10 working days in a row off work which just isn’t enough time to do it justice. There’s so much to visit in Australia that I fear we’ll have to leave it until we retire – or win the lottery!
We have a few friends who have emigrated to New Zealand and are incredibly jealous every time we see their photos on Facebook. In a dream world a trip to New Zealand would tie in with the above trip to Australia!
Mauritius / Maldives
Now I know these are two separate places, but I’ve put them together because I don’t think I need to go to both – as much as I’d like to! One holiday lying on white sand and paddling in the turquoise Indian Ocean would be enough for me. Unless of course I win the lottery then I be there all the time.
China fascinates me – I went through a phase of reading novel after novel set in China, mainly during the Chinese revolution. I want to see The Great Wall of China and Tianamen Square, I want to sail in a junk down the Yangtze River, and I want to visit Beijing and Shanghai as well as rural villages.
I also got very into reading about Japan and Geishas after reading Memoirs of a Geisha. I’d love to see the cherry blossoms, the temples and real life Geisha. I’d also love to see the craziness of Tokyo.
I’ve never been to anywhere that looks like this. My holidays have always consisted of either beach holidays, theme parks or busy cities. Imagine how peaceful it would be to stay in a little house in the mountains. Preferrably in the summer though as I don’t like the cold. And without kids, or it wouldn’t be peaceful.
I’ve never been to Italy, I’m not really sure why. I’m not particularly fussed about going to Rome or Venice, but I would love to go to Tuscany and stay in a villa. I’d like to visit Florence and explore the architecture, see the famous sculptures, and of course, eat my body weight in pasta and pizza.
I could go on all day, but these are the main places on my travel bucket list. If I’ve visited most of these by the time I die then I can die happy!
Which countries would be on your list? Have I missed any?!
