My Travel Bucket List – 50 places yet to visit

I travel a lot for work and I love exploring new places. But travelling for work is usually limited to travelling within Europe (saying that, there is a trip to Israel coming up very soon, so super excited) and it does not always leave enough time to actually explore the cities / areas I visit thoroughly.

Growing up, we usually went on a 2-week holiday each summer. Alternating between visiting my family in England and camping somewhere in France. Don’t get me wrong, I loved it (I still love England and have moved here for good and I do still love going back to France, although nowadays I rather book a hotel or holiday home than go camping), but it meant the number of countries I explored was fairly limited.

Once I got old enough to travel on my own (or with friends / youth clubs) I started venturing out, but have never done the big gap year backpacking through Asia or Australia or the likes.

But then, it is never too late to start exploring, so I put together my Top 50 Bucket List of places I still want to see. They are in no particular order, just as they popped into my head.

  1. Tokyo
  2. Reykjavik
  3. Northern Lights
  4. New Orleans
  5. Athens
  6. Barcelona
  7. Salzburg
  8. Hong Kong
  9. Israel
  10. Malta
  1. Pompeii
  2. Cuba
  3. LA
  4. Las Vegas
  5. The Great Pyramids
  6. Go on a Cruise
  7. Edinburgh
  8. Great Wall and Terracotta Army
  9. Rio de Janeiro
  10. Finland
  1. Copenhagen (see the actual town for once, not just the airport)
  2. Budapest

  10. Singapore
  1. Norwegian Fjords (this obviously could be combined with number 16)
  2. Taj Mahal
  3. Grand Canyon
  4. South Africa / Table Mountain
  5. San Francisco
  6. Gibraltar
  7. Mexico
  8. Scotland
  9. Sydney Opera House
  10. Iceland with its hot springs and volcanoes

Plenty to see still. So I better start planning.

I will be able to tick off number 38 and 9 very soon (well saying that, let’s see if I actually see something of Warsaw, before I tick it off my list) and number 7 will probably follow in autumn for our next girly weekend away. Number 22 is on the radar for a weekend with mum (although that might have to wait until next year). As for the others? Bear with me and find out.

I have started looking for offers for number 4, but not sure Mr. T is quite buying into that trip just yet.

What is on your bucket list? Tell me.
