My travel bucket list is quite long and probably grows all the time. I love to visit new places and exploring
Hawaii – we can buy fairly cheap flights to Hawaii from Australia and now we live in Brisbane it is even easier to get there. From the movies I have watched and what I have heard the islands are really beautiful so with the ease of getting there it has to be in my top 10.
New York – I really want to visit New York, probably around my birthday at the end of November when it will be cold and quite festive just before Christmas. My birthday sometimes falls on Thanksgiving as well so it would be perfect timing.
The Antarctic – a friend from the camera club in Darwin took a cruise through the Antarctic over Christmas. Her photos were stunning and included so many penguins which are my favourite wildlife! I listened to a talk about her trip and it sounded absolutely amazing. It’s a very expensive trip so it is my current dream destination to celebrate my 40th birthday in four years time.
Lapland – for someone who doesn’t do well with the cold, a lot of my top 10 places are cold! I love Christmas a lot and what better place to visit at Christmas than Lapland!
Rome – even though I am from the UK I never made it to Italy. Rome has been on my bucket list for a long time now and I’m hoping that when me and the Aussie are in the UK we can take a little trip to Rome.
Vietnam – I have heard that Vietnam is very scenic and well worth a visit. It really appears to my photographers side a lot.
The Phillipines – the Aussie’s friend went on an amazing boat trip through the Phillipines a couple of years ago. We looked at his photos and it looked beautiful there. The boat that he travelled on was quite basic sounding and there was lots of camping on the beach but it really doesn’t worry me when I think of what I will see.
New Zealand – we are so close to New Zealand that a trip across the water has to happen. I’d love to hire a camper van and drive from one end to the other and think that would be the best way to see the country.
Japan – The Aussie has visited Japan a couple of times for work and is really keen to visit again. Apparently the skiing there is good but I think I would break myself if I went skiing! However from the photos I have seen it seems like Japan is like no ever place I have been or could imagine and I would really love to pay a visit!
Barcelona – I have visited the Canary Islands which are Spanish but off the coast of Africa a few times with my family and would highly recommend a trip, but haven’t been to mainland Spain. This is another trip on the bucket list for when the Aussie and I are in the UK.
The list does go on and includes Thailand, Borneo, Indonesia (not including Bali), Greece, the Netherlands etc etc etc!!
