It’s a little silly for me to make a list of places I’d like to travel because truthfully I want to go everywhere. But if planning this post-Christmas trip has taught me anything, it’s that it’s good to be prepared (and that October is apparently too late to book 99% of decent hotels in December… lesson learned). So here it is: a list of 10 places I’d like to travel, mostly new-to-me but others repeats, in the foreseeable future. I’d love for you to leave a comment telling me what would be on your list!
In addition to gorgeous beaches and irresistible accents, I’m dying to get to Australia to experience the design scene down under. I follow a bunch of Australian interior designers on Instagram and I can’t get enough of their no-holds-barred approach to color and pattern. I have a feeling I could do some serious shopping damage in Brisbane and Sydney…!
I’m pretty sure at least half of my travel board on Pinterest is comprised of images of Capri. Who wouldn’t daydream of cliffside strolls, Italian fare, and sailboat views?
Usually cold weather destinations aren’t at the top of my list but I definitely could make an exception for a dip in the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa that hovers around 100 degrees even on a 5 degree day.
A stay at Kenya’s Giraffe Manor is definitely on my bucket list.
5. Palm Springs
The ultimate girls’ trip.
I haven’t been back since my semester abroad in Tours, when I went just about as often as I could afford. My favorite spots? The Jardin des Tuileries and the Musée Rodin. Jess and Hallie are headed there this week and it’s making me all kinds of nostalgic! (I’ve linked to their Instagrams so you too can live vicariously.)
Morocco was the one country that I really wanted to see when I was abroad that I just couldn’t get to before the semester was over. I’m crossing my fingers (and saving my pennies) to be able to visit my brother when he studies in Europe next semester… Have any of you made the jaunt from Europe to Morocco?
8. Notting Hill
I wish Instagram had been in its current heyday when I studied abroad because I would have spent every free weekend strolling through London snapping pictures of pretty-in-pink exteriors (like this one in New York!).
Anywhere I can see an elephant beyond the Bronx Zoo is a must in my book.
Can you believe I’ve never been to Mexico? I’d love to camp out under a cabana here with a cold drink and a stack of books.
Some of my favorite places I’ve been to so far: Amsterdam, Interlaken, Santorini, Venice, and of course the Bahamas! What are some of your favorite places and where are you dying to jet off to next?!
