Shame on me, I missed Top Ten Tuesday this week. But honestly, I was procrastinating, because I can’t stand Valentine’s Day or anything dealing with it. Stupid money-making. I can spoil Mr. DZ any day I want, I don’t need a special day for it….
Anyways, I thought I do something different and show you a couple of places in different countries, that are high on my bucket list and that I would LOVE to visit!
The Whitsunday Islands
In Queensland, Australia. It is the only Australian place I mention, but not the only one I still want to see. There’s tons of nice spots here and I will definitely do an extra post one day! I’ve always wanted to go to the Whitsunday Islands, as I fell in love with the beautiful white beaches! There are a lot of nice little islands you can go to, like Whitehaven Beach, Hamilton Island or Airlie Beach on the mainland.
A friend of mine is going to Hamilton Island in April and I am VERY jealous.
I did not realize, that NZ is THAT close to Australia 😀 It’s worth it just to fly over for a week but if I go, I want to do it right and spend 4-6 weeks there. I want to do a ‘Lord of the Rings’- Tour and visit as many shooting locations as I can! That would be a perfect Camper Van holiday as well. I am so hype to see the Hobbit village and all those beautiful mountains. Almost all of my friends who went there, fell in love with the country.
I am so curious. Everyone who has been over there says that it’s a totally different world. I’d love to experience it. The food, the big cities, the quiet little villages, the history, the different islands… And yes, I’d probably bring too much manga/anime merchandise home and will surely check out some Wrestling promotions!
I’ve always been interested in going to Thailand. Especially since it’s so close now. There are a lot of pretty little islands, but Koh Samui is the most beautiful and on top of my Thailand list! As much as I like adventure holidays & backpacking – I am also a big fan of pretty beaches and relaxing resort holidays, so it looks like heaven to me!
Who wouldn’t want to stay in one of those lovely bungalows? It’s been a dream of mine and I hope I can make it happen! Imagine the peace and quiet and being surrounded by the ocean.. I picture myself reading a book there, occasionally going swimming, trying some local food…. Yes please!
There’s lots of places in South America that sound interesting to me, but I’ve always wanted to see Machu Picchu! It looks surreal and I NEED to see it in person one day. That is why I chose Peru!
The South/West of the USA
I am not interested in the whole USA. For example, I don’t want to go to New York and I also don’t need to go to Los Angeles^^ What I am interested in is a Road Trip through the South and parts of the West. Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Arizona etc… That’s what I want to see and experience! Might even include Mexico!
You kinda get everything in Canada and I heard people are so nice 😀 Mr. DZ went there and loved it! We need to go again together.
One day, I want to see the Northern Lights! I still can’t believe they exist, it’s something else! And I also want to stay in a little cabin in the woods in Sweden and visit Finland and maybe even Iceland, where they filmed ‘Game of Thrones’. Lots of neat waterfalls there as well. And natural Hot Springs. I am a fan of those!
I have never been to Italy! And I’ve lived in Europe for 25 years! Definitely something I should have done earlier – for the food alone. But it’s never too late!
I don’t even know where I want to go. Everywhere? Sicily, Rome, Milan, Florence, Lake Garda (on the picture!). But most importantly, I want to drink all the wine & coffee and eat all the pizza & gelato!
Other pretty places I haven’t seen but want to: Croatia, Fiji, Cook Islands, Hawaii, Nepal, Maldives, Vietnam (I only stayed at the airport!)
So what’s on your bucket list? Or have you even been to some of the places I want to go to? Let me know & make me jealous! 😉
