Travel Bucket List

Follow my blog with Bloglovin


These cold, wet, rainy days have got me longing for warmer weather. I've been daydreaming about all of the destinations I want to visit in my lifetime - most of them have weather significantly better than England which is a bonus! So far, I've mainly visited places within Europe, however there are so many places I want to visit further afield so hopefully 2019 will be the year that I tick some of them off of my bucket list.

NEW YORK CITY | Ever since watching Gossip Girl I have been desperate to visit New York City! There's so much to see and do there, plus the food looks amazing. I love the look of Central Park; an urban oasis surrounded by skyscrapers, and I would love to walk across Brooklyn Bridge as well as go to the top of the Empire State Building. I could go on for ages about all of the things I want to do in New York City - hopefully I'll get to visit soon!

VIETNAM | Lots of people have told me how beautiful and interesting Vietnam is (it's also apparently quite cheap). Vietnam looks so different to any of the places that I've visited before and it's full of history. I would love to travel around and see a few different places such as Ha Long Bay, Hanoi and Hoi An.

REYKJAVIK | I'm sure everyone has seen photos of the Blue Lagoon - it's a spa located in a lava field and looks absolutely incredible! Reykjavik is also a great location to view the Northern Lights, which is something I've wanted to see ever since seeing them in a movie when I was younger! There are also glaciers and hot springs to see which would be really interesting.

CROATIA | Croatia in the summertime looks perfect. There's a mixture of ancient architecture, beaches and national parks to keep me entertained. I would love to go island hopping so I can experience the different islands and the Krka National Park looks incredible with it's series of 7 waterfalls.

AMSTERDAM | Amsterdam is the sort of place that I could visit for a long weekend, so hopefully this year I'll get round to arranging that! I would love to walk along the canals and see Vondelpark. There's also the Anne Frank House which, having read Anne Frank's Diary when I was younger, would be such a powerful experience.

VANCOUVER | Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the "best places to live in the world". The landscape is so diverse - it's a city surrounded by water that also has beaches and mountains. I would love to visit Gastown (one of Vancouver's oldest neighbourhoods) as well as Stanley Park, and Grouse Mountain would be amazing to go skiing. There's also the Capilano Suspension Bridge - one of the world's longest and highest suspension bridges - which looks quite scary but it would also be amazing to walk across it.

SINGAPORE | Admittedly, I had never considered visiting Singapore until watching Crazy Rich Asians (great film btw!)... but the film opened my eyes to how exciting and multicultural Singapore is. It combines old and new architecture and there's an impressive range of food. The Gardens by the Bay is one of the most high-tech botanic gardens that I've seen and the views from Southern Ridges would be spectacular.

SAFARI | Another thing on my bucket list is to go on a safari. There are so many to choose from, however some of the best ones are Serengeti National Park and Kruger National Park. It would be amazing to see the wildlife in their natural habitats and, of course, the iconic Big 5 - as well as lots of animals that I have never seen before.

So there you have my Travel Bucket List. I've got a lot to get through - better start saving! If you've been to any of these places then let me know what you thought and if you have any recommendations for things to do. Have you made a travel bucket list?
