I love to travel and a few years ago I started a list of all the places I want to visit. I have crossed off a few places from my list, but it is still a very long list. There are a few places I want to get to more than others. Not sure if it is the cooler temps, but I have been thinking about my travel wish list a lot lately. Here are a few of the places I want to get to soon.
Greece. If I have to be specific, I will say Santorini and Athens (oh also Mykonos). Actually, forget being specific - I will take any of those three. I am also fascinated by the Greek food - I finally perfected my mousaka recipe [hint - you should checkout my food blog here for details]. So take the picturesque view, blue waters, little houses on hills, blue water (bears repeating) and food - that is a vacation made just for me. The top picture is of Santorini. Seriously, don't you just want to pack a bag and hop on a plane now.
Amsterdam. If you asked me last month, Amsterdam would have made my top 10 (but not my top 5) but one of my favorite bloggers (Eva from adventures in cooking) recenly took a Euro trip that included Amsterdam - her pictures of the city (and the Netherland country side) was all the convincing I needed to get to Amsterdam (and the Netherlands) asap. I cannot wait to visit the Van Gogh museum ; the Rijksmuseum, take a boat trip on the canal ring and finish the day at one of Amstedam's Brown cafes (someone make this happen, please)
South of France/Monaco. My brother took a trip to Monaco and Nice a few years back and going through his pictures and hearing his experience moved this region to the top five of my vacation wish list. Lounging on the beach in cannes, touring wine country in nice. oh, a tour of chateau de bellet ? yes, please.
Malta. The island of Malta has been on my travel wish list for over a decade (since I saw some pageant held over a decade ago (drop those raised brows). Then Anna's (vivianna does makeup) Malta vlog just confirmed this was a place I needed to get to - sooner than later.
Hong Kong. I love a nice vacation on the beach just like the next person, but when it all comes down to it - I am a city gal at heart. I like the pace and culture of big city and since I have been to NYC, London and Paris, I think Hong Kong should be next on the major city vacation, but just like Amsterdam - it would not have made my top five, but then I read a piece on Hong Kong on a recent cross country trip and It went up the list very quickly. Now I dream of visiting the goldfish market and victoria peak (oh , how can I forget man mo temple); Then there is the food. What more can a girl ask for ?
what's on your travel wish list?
