My Travel Bucket List

I have always been a big fan of bucket lists. I think they can provide extra motivation but also help to narrow down where you want to visit next. My travel bucket list is also written on paper & I highlight things once I have done/seen/visited them.

    Amazing list! Would definitely recommend The Atlantis in Dubai <3


      (December 3, 2017 - 10:11 am)

      Thank you! I’m going to Dubai in January so hoping to tick more off then! 🙂


        (December 3, 2017 - 10:12 am)

        That’s great! I’m sure you’ll have fun 😀


    (December 3, 2017 - 11:00 am)

    This is a great list, looks like you’ve been to some amazing places so far! I would recommend Hawaii, it’s stunningly beautiful there 🙂


      (December 3, 2017 - 11:01 am)

      Oh yes! I would love to visit there too, I’ll add it now! 🙊

    The Book Moo

    (December 3, 2017 - 2:31 pm)

    Love this post! How did you make the map at the end? I really want to do one, is interesting to see how much of the world you have seen!!!


      (December 3, 2017 - 2:40 pm)

      It’s a screenshot from the ‘been’ app, just search it on the App Store and you basically just click which countries you’ve been to & it highlights them in orange and tells you the percent of the world(mine is only 7%😱) and each continent!

        Ooooo I love that idea, doing it right now!!!! Thank you 😘


          (December 3, 2017 - 2:46 pm)

          You’re very welcome, my most visited continent is Europe (obvs) and I’ve visited 26% of European countries so it’s still not good enough! It’s good because you remember smaller countries that you’d never think of! ☺️

    (December 3, 2017 - 3:07 pm)

    Oh, I should put together a list like this! It would be looooong for sure 😉


      (December 3, 2017 - 4:28 pm)

      Definitely do it, it’s so freeing! It feels more like a plan than a dream now 🙂


    (December 3, 2017 - 4:16 pm)

    For the USA, I would highly recommend Yellowstone National Park and Devils Tower National Monument, both in Wyoming.


      (December 3, 2017 - 4:30 pm)

    Wow, omg, it’s so long! We have one but it’s about half the length at the minute! One thing I will say is deffo change Port Douglas for Cairns! So much more to see and it actually feels like a place people live. PD felt like just a big resort when we went, if that makes any sense. We’ve lived in Cairns for 4 months now though and we love it, we don’t want to leave and will be sad when we do in 2 weeks time.


      (January 28, 2018 - 6:23 am)

      I can never narrow things down – I just keep adding! Thank you for the advice – we’re definitely planning on visiting cairns too – I’d been looking at Port Douglas for a potential living situation! How long have you been in Aus?

    This bucket list sounds epic ☺️🌏


      (June 25, 2018 - 11:48 pm)

      It definitely is epic, here’s hoping I get to complete it! I keep adding things to it!


    (June 20, 2018 - 11:02 am)

    Love this! I love how easy it is to keep track on one page – one day, this’ll be completely full of all those amazing memories <3


      (June 25, 2018 - 11:48 pm)

      That’s what I’m hoping! All my memories in one place!


    (July 12, 2018 - 5:01 pm)

    I’ve never been to the places you’ve listed except for Puerto Princesa 🇵🇭 and some places in the USA. But there are many more places to visit in the Philippines that you should definitely include in your list! ☺️


      (July 12, 2018 - 8:29 pm)

      I definitely need to research the Philippines more, it looks so beautiful!


    (August 13, 2018 - 7:13 pm)

    SO good! Keep ticking those off!!
