Travel Bucket List

The other night at small group, we opened the discussion with an ice breaker question. The question was “what is your dream vacation?”. It was so fun to listen to everyone talk about where they want to travel to…Australia, Montana, Alaska, Tahiti…they all sounded amazing! I decided to put together a list of places that I want to explore. Hopefully I’ll get to visit these places sometime!


Ever since I watched Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Mamma Mia, I’ve longed to travel to Greece–specifically the Greek Islands like Mykonos and Santorini. In movies and photos, everything looks so blue and dreamy. I’d love to sit on a patio with this view while sipping coffee and planning out a day of exploration.

There is so much that Australia has to offer. Amazing cities, scuba diving, the Outback, and more. I also love the way that Aussies talk. Sydney and Melbourne seem like fun places to explore…I’d also love to dive in the Great Barrier Reef.

After watching Eat, Pray, Love, Italy made its way onto my travel bucket list. Rome, Venice, Naples, Florence, Milan, and Cinque Terre are places that I’d love to see. Authentic Italian gelato, pizza and pasta all sound delicious as well.

Bora Bora

I mean, who wouldn’t want to travel to this paradise? This place doesn’t even look real. Is it real? Because I’ve never seen anything more beautiful. Must go here.

I’m more of a tropical beach gal than a mountains gal, but the photos of Switzerland look absolutely stunning. I’d love to walk around Swiss cities with views of these beautiful snow-capped mountains.


Word on the street is that the diving is incredible around this little island just north of Venezuela. Aruba and Bonaire are nearby and I’ve heard great things about those as well.

New Zealand

This one is pretty self explanatory.

I'd love to hike around in this exact spot! Source.

Mallorca, Spain

I’ve been to Spain, but never to this Spanish island. I’m pretty sure Rafael Nadal is from here.

There are a lot more places I’d like to go, but this is just a list of my top choices. What is your dream vacation?
