My Travel Bucket List



I have been very fortunate over my twenty seven years to see so many amazing and beautiful places on this earth.  I am truly grateful for all my travels so far and feel like the luckiest girl in the world when I look back on them. There are seven places however, still on my list, that I find myself daydreaming about on a rainy Monday morning.  So, here is my travel bucket list of my must do destinations….

1. Route 66, The Ultimate American Road Trip

Probably on a lot of people’s bucket lists is an American Road Trip.  I know this is top of my boyfriend’s list aswell.  We love road tripping together and this would be an unforgettable experience.  We would definitely adapt the original Route 66 so we could take in Las Vegas, The Grand Canyon and Graceland as well.  My boyfriend is a huge Elvis fan so visiting Graceland is a must!

2. Tokyo, Japan

Man, oh man! I have been dying to visit Tokyo, Japan for so many years.  I am so fascinated by Japanese culture and to be fully emerged into something so different from what we are used to here in the UK would be life changing.

3. Iceland and The Northern Lights

A recent bucket list destination added to my list is Iceland, after watching some beautiful travel vlogs and being very jealous of friend’s facebook pictures. If we managed to see the Northern Lights too I would be a very happy gal! Iceland just looks so incredibly beautiful and somewhere that would take your breath away.  The Blue Lagoon is definitely a must do!

4. Bali

This has been near the top of my bucket list for a long time now.  I would love to spend some time in Bali, true ‘Eat, pray, love’ style haha!….But no seriously, I would love to spend some time truly immersing myself in the healing and life changing power of Bali.  A place to truly ‘just be’ and learn so much about yourself and the world around you.

5. The Maldives

I mean, that sea!  A romantic getaway on a little hut over the water on the island of the Maldives would be a perfect trip for me. The ideal ‘honeymoon’ destination and from the pictures I can see why.  The ‘Glittering Sea of Stars’ in the Vaadhoo Island makes the Maldives a bucket list destination for me.

6. Hawaii

A place myself and my boyfriend dream about on a daily basis. I would love to see all the sights of this beautiful Island, including Pearl Harbour, and learn to surf the waves whilst taking in the stunning landscapes.

7. Australia

This is the big one for me.  I have convinced my boyfriend that one day we will move to Australia for 3-6 months and live and work on the other side of the world.  I have always felt a strong pull to visit Australia and would love the time over there to see and do as much as we can.  An Australian adventure is definitely a big ole dream of mine!

I now have a serious case of wanderlust and cannot wait to hopefully make it to these destinations in the near future.  There are so many other places that I hope to travel to in my lifetime but I hope you enjoyed reading my top destinations.  Please comment below if you have been to any of these places and your own travel bucket lists.  I love reading about people’s favourites for travel inspiration.  I am planning a blog post soon about my favourite places I have been fortunate enough to visit so far and really looking forward to sharing that with you. Travel really is one of the best things in the world.
