2018 Wish List Destinations

I was lucky enough to visit some incredible places during 2017 and it only made my desire to travel this year even stronger. A few of my favourites last year included Greece, Spain, Croatia, and Berlin, but there’s still so many destinations left on my wish list!

Cuba

I’ve had a few friends return from Cuba and tell me it’s everything that I have been imaging: free-flowing mojitos, vintage cars, salsa music on every corner, dance parties and the warmest welcome. Honestly at this point I might not even come home.

Cartegna, Colombia

Cartegna is an Old Town that I have been dying to visit – I mean just LOOK at it. Words aren’t even necessary. If I’m being honest, the inner basic blogger in me is dying at the photo possibilities. I’d also love to see Bogota whilst I’m there and there’s also the nearby Rosario Islands that look nothing short of a postcard. I’m just really keen to see South America in general, actually.

Italy

Can you believe I’ve never been to Italy? Really though, after spending 3 summers in Europe, I somehow managed to completely avoid it. I don’t know why, but I never had a real interest in going. That is up until now. Now I’m kind of gutted that I’d never visited! I would particularly love to see Capri, Venice, Positano and all along the Amalfi coast!

Tulum, Mexico

If I’m being honest, I’d make the 24+ hour commute to Mexico for the food alone. Tulum is a town on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula and just looks like the dream. There’s many other places in Mexico I’d love to see, but I just couldn’t miss this one! The jade green water just gets me.

Japan

For years I have wanted to visit Japan as I’m so fascinated by the culture and way of life. I’d especially love to visit during cherry blossom season!

Dubai

From the skyline, man made beaches, to the Palm Jumeirah and Burj Khalifa, things over there seem so over-the-top and I am here for it. Aquariums in shopping malls? Tick. Planes made out of flowers? Yep. Self-flying taxis? Obviously. Is this place even real?!

Where is somewhere on your travel wishlist for 2018?

    I hope you have a wonderful Monday!

    • Isn’t it just?! So very cool! x

  • Japan is definitely on my travel bucket list, but I’m not hankering to go there right now. I learnt Japanese in high school but don’t remember most of it now, so I’d have to brush up on the language before I leave. I’d like to go to the Sapporo Snow & Ice Festival to see all the sculptures, but I also want to visit during cherry blossom season as it looks so pretty. I’ve been to Italy before (Rome, Venice & Florence briefly) but like you, I want to explore the Amalfi Coast. One of these days I’ll get there.

    My family is from Cuba and they haven’t been back since they came over to the US back in the late 60s. Now that it’s a bit easier to travel there, we’re all planning a huge family trip! Myself and all of my cousins have never been so we’re so looking forward to it!

    Dubai is my dream destination, too! I think it is just dreamlike there! I read my horoscope on https://www.astrosofa.com/horoscopes/yearly-horoscope/Yearly-horoscope-2018 just a view minutes ago and it said, that I could make my dreams come true this year. And now I read this… I think I will look for affordable trips to dubai now. Thank you for this input! :-)

    You must visit Sardinia! It is completely different from all other islands you’ve ever visited :)

  • Gabriella

    You HAVE to go to Rome! Its seriously the most stunning place on earth.. I also want to travel around the rest of Italy especially Positano and the Amalfi Coast.
    ps. i recently just discovered you on Instagram and I’m really glad i did! #obsessed

  • WHAT ??? just tell me when you come to colombia. It’s a multicultural country so, has different weather, different geographical areas, music and accents. Also you must visit El Triangulo del Cafe. ah and Bogotá as the capital has a lot of history, museums and a really beautiful views of the city from the mountains.
    If you want go to check my Instagram to see a bit.
