is to share your travel bucket list!
I was particularly excited about this prompt because I love lists, like love. My day doesn’t really feel complete unless I’ve crossed something off some sort of list. I even have a category on this blog dedicated to lists. Obsessive much?
However, when I sat down to write this post, I realized that to share my entire travel bucket list would take way too long, and, let’s face it, the list grows on the daily (pretty much every time I go online or talk to someone I find a new place to add to that list). That’s just impractical for a blog post, am I right? (You’re welcome. Although you can read my life to-do list here, my places list here, and my 30 by 30 list here, if you’re interested).
Instead, I’m sharing a few of my top travel adventures I’d like to have. While traveling anywhere is it’s own adventure, these are the trips I’ve always wanted to do that involve time, extensive travel, or some kind of unique activity.
Ski in the Alps.
Ever since I visited Switzerland many moons ago, I’ve wanted to go back to the Alps in the winter to see the beautiful, snowy peaks and to ski down one!
Scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef.
As someone who loves to scuba dive, the Great Barrier Reef has always been one of my top destinations. It seems like the ultimate diving destination (although that’s just to my limited knowledge). But, look at those colors!
Ride the Trans-Siberian Railway.
This railway, which can take you from Beijing, China, all the way to Moscow, Russia (via Mongolia!) has always been a dream of mine. It’s pretty expensive and not a fast trip, but someday I would love to carve out a large chunk of time to take this train and watch China, Mongolia and Russia pass by out of the window.
Drink a beer at Oktoberfest.
I mean, look at this girl. This picture says it all! Oktoberfest looks like one big party I’d love to visit. I’ve heard it’s pricey, though, so maybe just for a day, and maybe just for a few beers.
Walk on the Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver, Canada.
For some reason this long suspension bridge in British Columbia has always been on my list. It’s just a bridge, but it seems so magical crossing the lush forests and appearing out of the mists.
Stay overnight in a castle in Ireland.
Who doesn’t want to stay the night in a real-life, ages-old castle? Ireland is full of castles, and since I found the country so charming, I think I would feel the same about staying in one of their castles. (Not that I would say no to staying the night in a castle, anywhere).
Sail in the Caribbean.
It sounds like such a dream to sail through the clear blue waters of the Caribbean without a care in the world.
Ride a hot air balloon over Cappadocia, Turkey.
It seems like almost an otherworldly experience to float over the strange, alien landscape in this part of Turkey.
Go on a photo safari in Africa.
I would go on a photo safari even if it meant an elephant hugged my car off the road.
Spend a year traveling around the world.
This is a BIG dream that I hope to make happen, someday! I would love to spend even longer than a year just gallivanting around the globe. I have so much I want to see, this seems like the only option. Maybe someday when I get paid to travel.
I’d love to hear…what are some of your top travel adventures, either that you’ve done or want to do?
