Travel Bucket List!

"I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list"

It's no secret how much I want to travel, now Abbie is at the age where she could handle being on an airplane and travelling more (don't hold me to this), I want to get out there and explore the world with her! I have a whole list of places I want to visit in my lifetime, and i'm adamant I WILL visit them all. Our first holiday abroad will have to be somewhere in Europe, just so Abbie can get used to the short plane journey and little time difference!

I would absolutely love to travel around Europe, all in one go, for 6 months just drive around in a camper van and explore. My love for travelling has been maximised because of my love for photography, when I imagine the travelling I just think of all the beautiful places I would see, all the photos I could take, the hours of editing on top of that and the memories I could make.

I thought I'd create a little bucket list of places I want to visit and share with you!

I don't even know why I'm so drawn to Ireland, I think it started when the film p.s. I love you came out, so I've got a lot to thank Gerard Butler for, anyone know where I might find him? ;). On a serious note, i'm going to Ireland next year for the first time, we are going to hire a gorgeous little cottage in the countryside, and visit all the lovely Irish people!

Basel - Switzerland
Rome, Sicily & Venice
Bora Bora/Moorea
New York
Northern Lights
Grand Canyon

More specific places after some googling and yearning...

Zhangye Danxia Landform - China 
Salar de Uyuni - Bolivia
Bamboo Forest - Japan
Lençóis Maranhenses - Brazil
Victoria Falls - Zambia
Moraine Lake - Canada

A dream i've had since I was about 14 was to take an America road trip, the whole cliche you see in movies, the car with the roof down, music blaring (Living on a Prayer mainly), and driving for hours, into the sunset, heavenly! 

I'd love to then branch out and step foot in every continent, see all the Wonders of the World, and before I die, I would love to be able to say I visited every single country! You only live once and I really want to start living mine!

You can just imagine the amount of photos I would be taking, after my New York adventure I took about 1500, in just a few days...I always make sure I don't miss a single thing! After each trip I think i'll create a scrapbook, full of photos, stories and souvenirs i've picked up along the way!

Where would you like to visit?
Also would love recommendations on hotels/places to stay in any of these!

  1. I live in Ireland. :) So I am sure I can give you some recommendations. It depends on what you are into. There are a lot of things to see in Ireland/Northern Ireland. You could easily get it done in a week.

  2. Oh lucky you! I think I'd have to go for Wicklow or Kerry, as long as there are things for Abbie to do within a 30 min drive really! I saw there's quite a few bits in and around Wicklow! Would love some tips as I'm off there next year! :) X

    1. Aw I'd have to pass there. I've actually never been to county3 kerry. Very far away from where I live. We live in the north west part. Wicklow is nice. I love glendalough. The Wicklow mountains are lovely but I'm sure you're familiar with that considering you watched Ps I love you. :)

  3. Love your list. I ticked off Amsterdam back in December and thought it was incredible. But as I'm Irish I must commend you on your Ireland choice :P We're great x

  4. I have so many places I want to go to and a lot of the places on your list are of places that I would love to go to as well.

  5. Great list of places. I would love to visit New York! x

  6. A great list of places. My bucket list is huge lol. I want to drive route 66 with the roof off lol. I've been to Dublin and it's great but that's the only place I've been in Ireland. Paris is my favourite city ever. I love it so much. Never tire of it x

  7. Top of my list is Borneo to see Orangutans in the wild.

    I loved reading your list and it's given me wonderlust!!

  8. How awesome would this be!! I love the idea of a scrapbook (and living on a prayer) Your photography is amazing and I bet you would create some fabulous memories for Abbie! Just let me know before you leave..... So I can pack my bags also x

  9. Bora bora and the Northern Lights are the two places I haven't visited on your list and would love to go. I've been yearning to see the NL's for years, they look so amazing don't they! I studied Japanese at uni so spent a year living in Tokyo so can highly recommend a visit to Japan xx
