I can’t call myself a travel lover in any sense of the word. I hate change, I hate people, and I hate flying. I’m sure regular readers will know that for most of my life, I refused to even set foot on a plane, and didn’t do so until 2016. However, since then, I’ve flown a few times, and while I still hate it, I’m not at the point where I’m going to let it stop me from going on holiday. Before I worked up the courage to get on a plane, I never really saw the point in making a travel bucket list, because I was adamant that I would never get on one, so aspiring to go to all these different places was just bullshit. However, now I’m a little more used to it, I feel as though the places I want to go are a lot more doable. So, with that in mind, I’ve decided to share my travel bucket list with you for today’s post.
Absolutely 100% this is top of my list. If I could only travel to one place in my lifetime, this would be it. My Dad went there a few years back and he brought me back a big bag of goodies, and he had so many stories about how amazing it is. New York just looks incredible. The sights are one of the reasons I’d love to go: the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, all of it, but I think at the very top of my list would be Times Square. I’ve always had this fantasy that as my flight came into land, I’d be listening to Welcome to New York by Taylor Swift while almost crying at the fact I’m finally there. It’ll happen. I’m determined.
Vegas just looks like it would be so much fun. I know a few people that have been there and they’ve said it’s one of the most incredible places. I’m not particularly interested in the gambling side of it, even though it’s clearly a big part, but I think for the novelty we’d have to explore a casino or two.
It’s in Belgium. Hopefully you’ll get that reference if you’ve seen In Bruges, which is basically the reason why this is on my travel bucket list. It just looks so pretty, and the architecture looks amazing. Not only that, but my husband and I want to go mainly so we can walk past bits that were in the movie and quote the lines of In Bruges to one another.
Walt Disney World, Florida
I went to Disneyland Paris in September 2019 and it was AMAZING. That was the first step, and I’d still love to do the main event at the Florida resort where there’s more parks and everything is just at a much bigger scale. Not to mention, I’d probably also want to squeeze in a trip to the Universal Orlando resort too!
My brother and his family live out in Canada, and I’ve heard so many stories from my Dad about how amazing it is out there. The scenery, the people, just all of it. I haven’t seen them since my wedding so it would be fantastic to go out there and see them. Not to mention the fact that they’d know all of the best places to go!
Of course, aside from Bruges, a lot of these will involve a long-haul flight, which I’m not particularly ready for yet. However, I think if I get Bruges ticked off the list, I’d be left with no choice but to go with these options. While I’m in a positive mindset, I’m thinking maybe I could handle a long-haul flight, as long as I had plenty to keep me occupied. Or, I could just do what my Dad did on his flight to Canada…pay for a business class ticket and live your best life.
