My 2019 Travel Bucket List

¿Pensando ya en las vacaciones de 2019?

my 2019 travel bucket list

Are you already thinking about your 2019 holidays? I know I definitely am. That’s why today I’m sharing with you my 2019 Travel Bucket List. It’s never too early to start planning for your next holiday.

Does anybody else book a holiday and then suddenly they’re already thinking about their next? I once read that you are some form of a “travelholic” if you book holidays whilst you’re on holiday. I’m certainly guilty of that one.

I’ve been scouring across the internet, mainly on, since I booked my upcoming flights to Leicester, and I’m already deciding where my must-see places of 2019 are.

I came across Holiday Gems whilst searching for our upcoming holiday, like me, you’ll be reassured to know that they’re ABTA protected. I was also pleased to find out that they actually offer Triple Protection, meaning that everything is completely financially secure.  They work alongside tour operators, airlines and suppliers to offer a comprehensive range of services, such as package holidays, flights, hotels, travel and car insurance and more.

I’ve ranked My Top 5 bucket list locations of 2019 and I’ll be very interested to see where you’re off to on holiday next. If you’re heading out to Benidorm in 2019, be sure to let me know!

1. Orlando, Florida

At the very top of my 2019 Bucket List is definitely Orlando, Florida. I’m craving to head back to The Sunshine State and get that Mickey Mouse Magic back into my life. It’s been a long time since we last went to Florida and Alex has never been, which is why I’m making it my mission to head back to the states and soak up the magic in 2019.

2. Miami, Florida

I mean, have you seen Miami? The exotic cars, the high rise buildings, the stretches of white beaches. Having been to Florida a few times, the city of Miami is one that we’ve never been to. It’s only a short drive from Orlando, so I’d love to tick off Miami and spend a couple of nights in the gorgeous Metropolitan city.

3. New York, New York

So good that they named it twice, right? If you’ve ever listened to me rambling on, you’ll know exactly how much I want to go to New York. I don’t think there’s a post gone by where I haven’t referred to my desire to head to The Big Apple. I’d love to go to New York during the Christmas period of 2019. It’s near the very top of my bucket list, so I’d love to be able to tick that off and see the ball drop on New Year’s Eve. I’d have to book to ice-skate at Rockefeller Center and see a Broadway show too. *checks bank account and sighs deeply.*

4. Lanzarote, Spain

Lanzarote is actually somewhere that I’d completely forgotten about until I read a little more about Lanzarote on We have covered so much of Spain, especially during recent weeks, but we have neglected the Canary Islands. I have been to Tenerife quite a few times, but Lanzarote is somewhere that I’ve never been. Being so close to Africa, it has that perfect all-around summer. Once an active volcanic island, I can imagine that it makes for an idyllic beach holiday with some spectacular landscape. I think Lanzarote would be a perfect 2019 winter getaway. It seems like it would be a more achievable destination after seeing some of the deals on Holiday Gems.

5. Edinburgh, Scotland

I’ve spoken about Edinburgh a lot in recent times and why it steadily creeps into my bucket list locations. I’m hoping that in 2019 we can sneak a weekend away to the Scottish, hilly capital and explore the best of the medieval Old Town and the Georgian New Town. We’d make sure to spend some time at the Edinburgh castle and see the spectacular views that it so famously boasts. Alex has often said how much he’d enjoy heading to Edinburgh for Hogmanay, however, I would be more than happy going for a short weekend break in Autumn.

What’s on your 2019 bucket list?
Have you booked your holidays yet? 

Hasta luego,

      1. it’s very weird, cause for 21 years I’ve wondered what it was like to live on the other side of the Atlantic and now I know, it’s cool that I am closer to the US!! I would love to go to Mexico, Peru and Argentina!!

  1. I really want to go to Disneyland! I went to Orlando in 2015 but we didn’t go to Disney & I desperately want to (still had the BEST time at Universal though!). I was lucky enough to go to New York on the same trip and I didn’t actually enjoy it that much at the time but I am desperate to go back now I’ve done a lot of growing up and seeing more of the world. It’s an incredible place!

    1. Disneyland California is incredible, I’ve never been to Disney Paris though! Oh gosh, I can’t believe you went to Orlando and didn’t go to Disney World! You’ll have to go! Ahhh amazing, I’d really love to go to New York, I can understand where you’re coming from a lot of people have said they went when they were younger and wasn’t able to appreciate it! Hope you get to go back soon!
