Places I want to visit

If you've been around this blog for any amount of time then you know that I am travel uhb-sessed. I've been to the US, all over the Caribbean, Asia (India), Europe and Australia and still think that there is soooo much of the world left to see. Sidenote - you can check out my Travel page to see the trips I've blogged about. If you look at my Pinterest you will see a couple travel boards. One of them is dedicated to places I want to visit. Lately, I just want to travel. And even though I am planning some trips for this year (US, Peru) these places have just been on my mind. 
Greece - Honestly, Greece is at the tip top of my list! Anywhere in Greece really, but Santorini's white buildings and blue seas have caught my eye. I want to go there some day!


Amsterdam - I love old European cities and Amsterdam seems to have soon much to do. Its a city that has always intrigued me!


Pretoria South Africa - I had some South African friends from Pretoria while in University and they just painted the best picture of the place. I'm also a history buff (my first degree is in Lit/History double major) and South Africa is rich in history, good and bad. 


Paris France - This is self explanatory I feel! Who doesn't want to go to France?!

Venice Italy - I want to do it all in Venice. Riding a gondola is at the top of the list!


Back to India - I've been to India before and documented my trip on the blog a while back. The thing is, I don't think I gave India a fair shot. I didn't embrace the experience as much as I should have and I want a do over. 


New Zealand - Can you believe I flew clear across the earth and went to Australia and did not go to New Zealand? I can't either. It won't happen again! I also must see Hobbiton if I ever go there.


Bora Bora - I mean ... look at this pic below ... Honeymoon goals.


Hawaii - Speaking of honeymoon goals. I don't know why Ive had an obsession with Hawaii ever since I was a kid. I was a very precocious little one and I used to say that I wanted my honeymoon to be in Hawaii. haha!


There are so many more I can add to this list but these are at the very top. I was supposed to go to Europe this year with my mum but instead I'll be heading to the good old USA again in the summer and to Peru later this year. The reason? I plan to (hopefully) head back to Australia where my sister lives next year and that trip ain't cheap. No really ... It isn't cheap. The child-less, married-less, single attorney plan is to visit Oz every two years. If one of those factors changes maybe Ill have to alter this plan but as of right now ... thats the goal. 

Have a great Tuesday!!

  1. My parents were just in New Zealand last week--I think it would be an awesome place to visit! I'm hoping to go to Cambodia this year, other than that I have no grand vacation plans. Last year we stopped in Hawaii enroute from Michigan to China for our move, because adding the stop only added an extra $100 to our plane tickets--it was absolutely worth it. It's a beautiful place.

  2. I've been yearning for some tropical weather (or at least, an end to the snow!) so those Hawaii and Bora Bora pictures look heavenly right now :)

  12. I am obsessed with traveling as well & those are all awesome choices! Santorini is at the top of my list too. I found a volunteer abroad program that I'd like to do not this summer but in 2016. I'd get to travel, be immersed in the culture, & get to do it for crazy cheap.

  15. So many of these look gorgeous! Venice is on my list for sure, as is Bora Bora. Greece is one of my top picks too. So fun to be able to travel and explore!

  16. Oh yep these are all on my list. My friends and I are trying to get a Greek cruise together - apparently it's the best way to see Greece (according to my friends FROM Greece) sooo I'm sold!

    Bora Bora looks amazing, we looked into it for our honeymoon and the price was literally 5x our budget. Woof!

  17. Greece, New Zealand, and Hawaii are on my list, too. Actually, those, Italy, Spain, Australia, the UK, and a cross country US roadtrip are my travel bucket list. I've been to Paris and I'd go back once the rest are done.

    I love thinking about where I'd travel if I had the money.

  18. So I've been...basically nowhere, but not for lack of trying. Can I come on all these trips with you please!? :)

  20. Greece and Bora Bora are on my list too! I've been to Paris - it's definitely a place you have to see, but I don't think I'd go back. Maybe I didn't give it a fair shot like you in India. Fun post idea!

  21. Santorini, Paris, Amsterdam are all on my list!

  22. Yeah, if you need me, I'll just be in your suitcase...But really, all of these look amazing and I've certainly had the desire to go to them all at one point or another. Amsterdam has been at the top of my list recently too...it just seems like such a cool city! I went to Europe in college but only to Switzerland and Italy so there's so much more there that I want to see.

  23. Oh man, any of those places sound lovely!!!! The only other country I have been to is Canada. Does that even count? LOL. I would love to visit any of these places, you have quite a list here!

  24. I've been to Paris (a must see, but I don't need to go back) and Venice (magical!) I've only been to Auckland in New Zealand. I need to do a whole lot more in NZ. The others are on my wish list as well. When I have time to dive in, I'm going to check out your "Travels" tab :)
