My Ultimate Travel Bucket List

Pro Tip-3.png

“El mundo necesita ser descubierto”

The world needs to be discovered. I like to travel. I like to see new places. Experience new things. There is something liberating about boarding a plane and not knowing what you’re going to find. There are always those little quirks. It’s always so exciting knowing that you’re going to discover something new. 

But, I also love to know that we’re going to finally see something we’ve been waiting so long to see. I like to plan. I like to write lists. I like to have something to look forward to. When we book a trip, I list all of the things that we would like to see whilst we’re there. A simple Google Search of what we’d like to see saves us so much time. But this is going to be the ultimate list. The big experiences. A place where we can keep track of what we want to do, but also see what we have already done.

You’re going to have to stick with me on this, it’s going to get pretty l o n gI’m hoping that in our lifetime – all of these things get ticked off – or near enough all.

  1. Such an amazingly comprehensive bucket list! I’ve done a few of these myself – a broadway in New York, visiting Stonehenge, the Alhambra – and quite a few others but one thing I’d really love to do is play Elephant Polo in Sri Lanka!

  2. First of all, I LOVE this! It is so wonderful to not only have a bucket list, in which you can actively cross things off as you go, but to have the insatiable desire to travel.

    I just saw the Northern Lights in Sweden, and they were unbelievably breathtaking. Having the ability to travel, is something you should never take advantage of, so keep dreaming and keep seeing the world, girl!

    1. I bet that was amazing! I’m desperate to see the northern lights 😍 I can’t wait to keep adding on and crossing off – eventually I want hyperlinks so I can add our experience in each place and give a more detail post! I hope to keep travelling and seeing the world 💛


  3. I really enjoyed reading this! I have some similar things on my own bucket list. I’m actually from New Zealand and I haven’t visited Hobbiton before. That’s definitely something I should probably do though! It’s one of our biggest tourist attractions. I think I’ll definitely have to add some more things to my bucket list tonight!

  4. I think I absolutely love your bucket list! I am getting a major case of wanderlust lately, but I can’t travel that much because I’m chronically ill and something called money. But you have some AMAZING things on your bucket list! I hope you get to do everything on your list ❤

  5. I couldn’t agree more. I love to travel and want to visit as many places as possible. I’d love to do so many of the things on your list. At the moment I’ve only done five but slow and steady right! Definitely want to go to that restaurant in the maldives for sure! X

  6. This post just inspires me to do every single one of these things! I went to see a broadway in New York and ended up falling asleep cause it was a super hot day and we’d been walking around non-stop. So I’d love to go back and see either Anastsia: The Musical or Wicked. Seeing the Northern Lights sounds incredible, the pics other people take make me want to pack my bags and go straight away haha! Hopefully, I become rich one day and can just travel everywhere! Loved reading this!

    1. Oh no!! I’d love to see wicked 😍 I’ve never seen the musical, I feel like I’m saving myself for Broadway! If you’re gonna do it, do it right! Haha. I’ve seen a lot of shows in London and I love it! The northern lights look so stunning, I’m so desperate to see them too! My mum saw them in Canada! Hahaha yessss me too!!! Haha xxx


  7. Wow!! What an amazing list! This just reminds me that there is so much of the world I want to see! 😍 I have only done a few things on your list – Santorini, Thailand & windmills in Holland. This is such a brilliant post, I hope you have fun ticking these off your bucket list. Looking forward to reading more about your adventures on your blog ☺️💕 xx
