My Travel Wish List


It’s a great big world and there is so much I have yet to explore. Truth is, I kind of hate the concept of the bucket list; ticking off a list that you have to do before you die just seems kind of morbid to me. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a list of places I want to see and things I want to experience, I most definitely do. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to some of the world’s most beautiful destinations and have had some amazing experiences along the way; from waking up to the sounds of the rain forest in Costa Rica to glacier hiking in Iceland each new place only stokes the fires or wanderlust that much more. My travel desires are fluid, new experiences will certainly take the place of old; travel is my addiction and there is no cure. Without further ado, here is my travel wish list.

  1. Great list, I have only done 26, and there’s only a few that I might not be so interested in. My list is ever growing, as I’m sure yours is also.

  2. Love your list and I am glad I have done about half of them! Now 50 more to go!!!

    • I remember your trip to the Faroe Islands, the pictures were stunning!

  3. gosh, well that will keep you busy for a while! I’ve done a few of them – and all should definitely STAY on the list

  4. This is such a fun list to complete! I was very pleased to see Singapore in there, being so small we are often forgotten, but our food is most definitely a good reason to visit. 🙂 When you do try our chilli crab, be sure to order ‘mantou’ to go along with it. Its a fluffy white bun that is deep fried and eaten with the chilli crab gravy. So good!

  5. I call mine a wish list as well. And the hard part about it is that I keep adding more and more things to it!
