I have had the travel bug for quite some time now. To date, I have visited 25 states, 24 countries, and two US territories. I LOVE to travel and see the world. I started international traveling when I was 18 and visited Ireland. Prior to this, I knew I wanted to travel, but this just fueled the fire in my soul to see the world. Since that time, I have traveled to another country for nine of the 12 years. Well almost 13 since I’m almost 31.

My goal is to see 50 countries before I die, but just for fun, I put together a list of a few of the places on my bucket list. In reality, these may not be my top 10, but that made for a good title.

1. Copenhagen, Denmark

As of right now, my mom and I are planning a trip to Budapest for spring 2018. Let’s just hope this trip materializes.

3. Monte Carlo

I begged Bryan for us to go to Monte Carlo for our honeymoon. He decided it was not as good of an idea as I did. Made my heart really sad.

4. Bratislava, Slovakia

Along with Budapest, Mom and I are talking of visiting Bratislava in Spring 2018. We had originally planned to visit these two on our grand European adventure in 2016, but I got pregnant so we lost 5 days and two countries. Time to make up for it.

5. Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Something about the Middle East just fascinates me. I’ve never been there, although I have been close in India. I am so intrigued by this area of the world, and I am dying to go check it out.

Oh, Amsterdam. I am not sure what it is, but something about this city draws me in. I want to see it.

7. Santorini, Greece
Travel Bucket List

I was so close to Santorini in February when I visited Athens. However, it was still a good little day trip out of the city, so we did not divulge. But, one day, one day, I will go back to Greece and visit Santorini.

8. South Africa

I met some South Africans when I worked for Carnival. Since that time, I have wanted to visit their country. Africa has always been on my bucket list, but South Africa tops them all.

 9. Machu Picchu, Peru

Again, my radar fo Machu Picchu began when I worked for Carnival. I had some South American friends who took some time off and went to Machu Picchu. It’s so fascinating and beautiful, and I want to see it.

10. Venice, Italy
Travel Bucket List

How cool is a city with waterways for roads!!! Man, I love water, and I would love to see Venice. It is my dream to travel by boat everywhere. Let’s just build our houses on stilts and flood the streets. Ok, maybe not. But a girl can dream right?

Ok y’all. That’s all the fun for today. What are some places on your travel bucket list? Have you been to any of the places on my list? Send me pics so I can live vicariously through you.
