My Travel Bucket List!

My Travel Bucket List!

Hi everyone, happy March and happy meteorological spring! I’ve always wanted to make a post like this, and I didn’t have a specific idea for today so I decided now was the perfect time to make one. Basically, I’m going to be talking about travel destinations I’d love to see in my lifetime! I didn’t include all of them for length purposes, but these are definitely my top destinations as of now.

My Travel Bucket List!

Ålesund, Norway

I’ve always been captivated by this town!! To be honest, I can’t even put into words why that is. I’ve always wanted to go to Scandinavia in general but there’s something about cute island port towns that get me. I’m also in love with the architecture!

I don’t have a point for wanting to go other than that it’s pretty. I am not a person who likes to go to a lot of tourist attractions. I would much rather walk around and see how the locals live. I literally have no idea what I would do if I actually went here, or any of these places. (It’s also apparently a little bit cheaper than to go to other parts of Norway so I could actually GET there easier woo!)

I’d love to see the Northern Lights, but this town is a bit too far south for those to be consistent!

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai has the world’s tallest building, so that would be pretty nifty to see. Can you tell by now that I’m a sucker for architecture? The Dubai skyline is gorgeous and many of the buildings are relatively new, in comparison to most cities, so the skyline looks sleek and almost futuristic to me.

There’s also a ton of shopping, which would also be fun. Dubai also is home to the Dubai Miracle Garden, which is 100% my kind of place! They also have a butterfly garden in there! Where I would imagine you can feed the butterflies, which I’ve done before on a smaller scale and that’s an experience.

Moscow, Russia

I have been curious about Saint Basil’s Cathedral since I was young enough to understand what other countries were. The Kremlin is cool too but like… Saint Basil’s Cathedral.

Moscow is another of those places where I just want to walk around and see how people live. I want to go to cute cafes/coffee shops, find whimsical little stores, and just kind of exist there. I don’t want to have a purpose… I just want to go.

Ventura, California

So this is probably the most realistic one on the bucket list as of right now, because it’s in the same country as me… it’s just across the country. If I ever get the guts to go on a trip by myself (another thing on my general bucket list is traveling alone!!), I’m likely going to pick Ventura.

I’ve been to California a few times and I absolutely love Southern California. Much like every other place on this list, I don’t fully know why the Ventura/Ojai area interests me so much to the point I want to go! I do know that Ventura is a beautiful city… there I go again with the architecture!!!

I follow a ridiculous amount of Ventura accounts on instagram and I know that their county fair is always on my birthday, so I guess that needs to be a birthday trip for me!
