10 Places That I’d Love to Visit Someday

August 29, 2016

I’ve always loved traveling and I’m constantly coming up with future travel plans, even if it’s just in my mind. Which means that I love finding new travel bloggers to follow on Instagram and live vicariously through them. I even have a map tapestry above my bed to remind myself that there’s more to life than scoring a really good deal on heels at DSW or binge watching Law & Order: SVU.

This past year I’ve been incredibly lucky travel-wise, with my hiking trip through Peru, 4th of July in Los Angeles, and many weekends spent in New York City, and I’m looking forward to the rest of 2016 and what 2017 has in store for me.

It’s honestly a bit silly for me to make up this list since I have an infinite number of places that I’d love to visit someday, but I’ve tried to narrow it down to my top ten new-to-me places that I’d like to visit in the foreseeable future. What destinations are on your travel bucket list?


All of the pictures from National Geographic of Patagonia are always so gorgeous!

Yosemite National Park

I always love following people on Instagram while they road trip their way through the national parks. I visited Yellowstone when I was in middle school and I’d love to visit other national parks soon.


My boyfriend’s sister visited Belize a few weeks ago and I fell in love with the country through her pictures. I can definitely see myself swimming with sharks and laying out on the beach!


I had a bunch of friends who studied abroad in Prague but never got the chance to visit the city while I was studying in London.


I actually don’t know too much about Budapest but all of my friends who have visited have loved the city. Has anyone ever visited the public bath for themselves?


The picture above basically sums up why I’d love to travel around Thailand someday. Can you just imagine boating through such a beautiful spot?? Plus I’d LOVE to see elephants.


I never had much interest in Iceland, although my mom’s always said that it’s a beautiful country, until one of my friend’s visited after we graduated. The country has such a rustic beauty that it’s hard not to fall in love with the landscape.


A major item on my bucket list is to swim in the Tulum’s cenotes someday. I could very happily kayak and float around in this cent all day long.


I’m a huge fan of the show Girls and have been watching since it first aired on HBO years ago. So when Shoshanna went off to work in Tokyo for a season, I was captivated by the bright lights of the city.

Bora Bora

Bora Bora looks like such a dream, especially those cabanas that overlook the ocean!!

    • How gorgeous does the Icelandic countryside look? I’d definitely love to spend a long weekend exploring the country for myself!

  • Living on Cloud Nine

    Ahhh such a fun post to dream about. I love how diverse and culture rich your destinations are. Bora Bora and Iceland, YES!!!!

    • I’m so jealous that you’ve been to Tulum! I can’t wait to explore that part of Mexico for myself someday!

  • You are giving me a real case of wanderlust with this post! I would love to see all these places. My top pic is the Maldives. Having a hut over water is my dream trip. 🙂

    • Every picture that I’ve seen of the Maldives looks so dreamy! I’m a beach girl myself, so I would love to hang out on the beaches or in the over-the-water huts!

  • These would all be fun places to visit! We took an excursion from our cruise to see the ruins in Tulum, which were amazing! I definitely would want to spend more time there.


    • I’m so jealous that you’ve been to Tulum! I visited Cancun for spring break but that trip was more focused on the night life, so I’d love to go back and explore the rest of Mexico to see the ruins and the denotes!

  • I love travel too – Bora Bora is definitely on my bucket list! I can definitely recommend Prague and Yosemite and I have lots of friends in Iceland but never seem to quite make it for a visit!
    Great inspiration for a Monday !

I also want to visit Belize and Bora Bora! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, I hope you can check all of these places of your must go list!



    • I really hope that I can cross a few of these off of my bucket list soon too! And how gorgeous does Belize look??

  • reneejessome

    Gorgeous! I want to visit most of these places as well. Especially Bora Bora!

    Renee | Life After Lux

    • Bora Bora looks so gorgeous!! I basically drool anytime I see pictures of the island on Instagram!

  • So many great places to visit 🙂 I’d love to visit the Maldives, Mauritius, Jamaica, St Lucia, Paris, the Italian lakes, and Lake Louise. The list goes on! Angharad x

    • I visited Lake Louise a few years ago with my family and it’s absolutely gorgeous!! We went in the winter (definitely a winter wonderland), but I’d love to go back during the summer!

  • If you ever visit Thailand, you should definitely stay in Koh Samui for a while it’s the prettiest island ever!


    Tamara –

    • I just looked up pictures of Koh Samui and the island looks so beautiful!! Definitely putting it on my list of things to do in Thailand!

  • I have been to 2 of your bucketlist. Tho I will go back to tulum once more because of its beauty. I have lived in thailand for 6 months and it was beautiful, check out Krabi and ofcourse Phuket.

    but Belize and Bora Bora is one of my favorite places to see and Maldives

    • I’m so jealous that you’ve been to Tulum! I can’t wait to go for myself someday soon!

  • Serious travel lust after reading this post- I want to see Thailand and Belize, too!

    Le Stylo Rouge

    • Belize looks so incredibly gorgeous!! I can’t wait to visit the country for myself someday soon!

  • Rina Doria

    Loving all the places you’ve mentioned on your list, especially Budapest and Belize. I love travelling too and am planning a trip to Europe for next year. I don’t have all the places figure out yet but this list helps! Hope you’re having an amazing week so far!

    xoxo Rina

    • Your trip next year sounds so amazing and I can’t wait to hear more about where you’ll be going once y’all figure it out!!

  • Aditi Oberoi Malhotra

    Great list! Tulum seems like paradise!!

    Adi xx

    • It really does! I’ve been to Mexico a few times but never to Tulum!

  • Christina

    All of these places are SO beautiful. I would love to go to Thailand one day.

    xo, Christina

    • Thailand looks like such a dream and I’m always so jealous when I see pictures of other people and friends traveling to the country!

  • These are all on my bucket list although I’ve been to Tokyo! You would absolutely love it there!


    • I’m so jealous that you’ve been to Tokyo!! I could definitely see myself getting a bit overwhelmed since it is such a big city, but I’ve always loved city life!

  • Such a great list! Out of all of these I’ve been to Prague and Budapest – both great cities. Honestly Prague didn’t wow me as much as I thought it would, but Budapest was my favorite city I’ve ever been to. The Szechenyi Baths were fun, but if I went again I would probably go to one of the more local spots as they would be less touristy. Budapest was just such a young, vibrant city. I could totally see myself moving there. The best part is that Prague and Budapest are actually kind of close and both very affordable. Worth a trip!


    • I’ll have to keep your Budapest suggestions in mind when I get to see he city for myself someday! I actually don’t know much of what to do there but all of my friends absolutely loved the city, which makes me feel a little fomo-y haha

  • This is a great list! Yosemite is extremely beautiful, I highly suggest “glamping” (aka staying in a tent with a wood floor and bunk beds), while there. We also have a lot of the same travel wish list. I want to go to Budapest, I’m going to Tokyo in 10 days, and Iceland has been on my list ever since I saw the Secret Life of Walter Mitty.


    • I’m all about glamping and would totally love to do that in Yosemite! Great idea!! And I can’t wait to read more about your trip to Tokyo!

  • Mary

    Wonderful list! We share Patagonia, Belize and Iceland on our lists. I also really want to go to Bolivia and Colombia. Actually, South America has been calling to me lately.

    Love, Mary

    • I totally agree!! South America is just so gorgeous!

  • I have been to 3 places on your bucketlist. Prague is one of my favourite cities in the
    world, hope you get the chance to cross it of your list soon. I would love to
    see Tokyo in winter.
