Since I was a baby, travel has been a huge part of my life. Having visited over 30 countries and lived in 4, it’s safe to say I’ve always had the travel bug. Though it’s been a few years since I’ve been anywhere new, I have a few places on my bucket list that I hope one day I can visit.
1. Tokyo, Japan
A few years ago I was supposed to go with my family but literally the week before we bought our tickets, the huge earthquake and tsunami happened. We decided to save it for another time and went to Portugal instead. Since I was little I have always wanted to go to Japan as I love the culture, the food and the general wackiness of it. Hopefully the year that we visit shouldn’t be too far away as I’ve convinced Topher to go. It totally helps that they have a Disney park!
2. Reykjavik, Iceland
This seems to have been a popular choice with people in the last few years with a lot of people I know both online and off paying this city a visit – including my parents. I’m not a massive fan of cold weather but I was won over by the Northern Lights, the lagoon, volcanos and the cute colourful architecture. Fingers crossed we can squeeze this one in before 2020.
3. Oslo, Norway
Another cold weather destination. Topher loves Scandinavia and besides Iceland, this is the only Scandinavian country that I haven’t visited yet. It’s not one I’m in a massive rush to get to (I’ve done zero research into it) but I can’t leave it off my bucket list.
4. New Orleans, USA
There’s a certain fascination I have with New Orleans. I think a big part of it is the architecture, the food and the rich culture of the place. It’s only been on my list for a couple of years but it’s one that I’m desperate to visit. One day!
5. Chicago, USA
I don’t know why this one is on my list as much as the others but it’s definitely one that is here to stay until it gets done. I love city breaks and Chicago looks like a great place that would have lots of things to do. Plus I really want to try a deep dish pizza.
