First let me say I am loving the idea of a themed Hopes & Plans to talk about my Travel Bucket List! I have posted about this before, but it is always fun to talk about it again, and a few of my destinations have changed a bit. My list is endless, so I figured I would share my top 7 places outside of the US today, and then next week (since the Hopes & Plans link-up is becoming a monthly thing, I will share my top 7 within the US).
Dublin, Ireland- I have some Irish heritage in my family, so that is one of the main reasons, but in general I would love to soak in all of the history in Ireland. I want to stroll through the castles, drink for a few hours in a pub, hear stories being told is adorable Irish accents, and see places I could only imagine in my dreams. Every photo of Ireland looks magical, and the movies portray it as a fairytale land. I would love to experience that first hand.
Venice, Italy- Luckily, I will be spending 3 days in Venice next summer during my honeymoon, but until that day arrives it will continue to be on my bucket list. I can’t wait for the canals, romance, history, food, wine, and everything in between. I want to wander the streets until it’s dark and wish I could live in a place as beautiful as (anywhere) in Europe.
Bali (Thank you, Eat, Pray, Love)- Have you watched Eat, Pray, Love? If not- I highly recommend it, if you have, I am almost 100% sure you want to go to Bali now too. has such a life changing experience while she is there. I want to learn about the culture, soak in the sun, and eat foods I would have never thought about trying. A room over the water would be an added bonus.
Sydney, Australia- Australia has been on my bucket list since I was 7 years old. Then the Real World went there and I just about died. The beaches, people, accents (can ya tell I have a thing for accents?), animals (minus the spiders-eeek!), food, etc all seem amazing. It is also pretty cool that the seasons are opposite ours, so for the first time ever I could have a pool party for my birthday.
Iceland- A few of my friends have taken trips to Iceland and it looks amazing! It also helps that Kaelene from Unlocking KiKi shares so many wonderful stories from her expat life there. One day I will visit The Blue Lagoon, waterfalls, and explore Reykjavik.
Tokyo, Japan- Tokyo is one of Dave’s top destinations and since talking to him about it, it has become one of mine as well. He wants to experience it for the cars, but I want to visit for the nonstop happenings. The photos make it seem like New York City to another level. I also wouldn’t mind having Japanese food everyday all day.
What is on your Travel bucket list?
