I have always loved travel and seeing new places. I have been blessed to have traveled to a majority of the states in the U.S. and I have also been to Canada, Mexico, and some countries in Europe. But there are still so many other places I would love to see. I love learning about new cultures, seeing amazing sights, and eating fun new foods (of course!). Here are a few on my list in no particular order:
Mount Aspiring National Park/ Otago, New Zealand
Hobbiton in New Zealand
I have always been blown away by photos I have seen of some amazing places in New Zealand. And then when I saw all of the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies (I had read several of the books in the past too) I fell in love. I would so love to visit Hobbiton too. (nerd alert - Lol!) Seriously though, many different photos I have seen from national parks in New Zealand have completely taken my breath away.
The River Thames London, England
Fairy pool - the Isle of Skye, Scotland
Rhosilli Bay - Swansea, Wales
I would love to see so many parts of Great Britain (if I can still refer to it all together?). I would love to see bustling London and the quiet countrysides of England. The magical beauty of Scotland. The amazing green of Ireland. And the breathtaking beaches of Wales. So much of my heritage and background comes from these places (great grandparents that came from Ireland and another set that came from Wales). The other part of my heritage is Polish and I was blessed to visit there and spend time with family and it was AH-MAZING!! I would highly recommend visiting Poland if you haven't - so much beauty there too.
Sydney Opera House - Sydney, Australia
The red road to Uluru
The Great Barrier Reef
I would love to go to Australia one day. It also looks so amazingly colorful and I have seen photos that take my breath away. Plus, I would LOVE to snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef! I have been blessed to snorkel in both Hawaii and Mexico and they were some of the coolest experiences in my life - like EVER! If you've never snorkeled, I highly recommend you put it on your bucket list!!
French River, Prince Edward Island
Cavendish Beach PEI
Green Gables PEI
I want to visit Prince Edward Island for the obvious Anne of Green Gables reasons. I read all of the books - twice. And I have seen several different tv movie versions of them. I want my Annie to read the books and love them as much as I did and we could take a girl trip there one day. ;) But I also would love to see the amazing red sand beaches and lovely coastal areas and countryside there. It looks like somewhere where you would feel like you're going back in time.
I've been to Mackinac Island in Michigan and that has a similar feel. In Mackinac they don't allow cars on the island - you have to ferry over to it and can only walk, ride horses, or take horse and carriages to get around. And the water is an amazing teal green and the houses are so charming. I recommend visiting there if you haven't!
Mount Kilimanjaro Kenya
Giraffe Manor Kenya
