TRAVEL BUCKET LIST | PLACES TO SEE & WHAT TO DO

You may have read my 25 BEFORE 25 bucket list or my PART OF 25 BEFORE 25 bucket list or even my 30 BEFORE 25 travel plans – unfortunately it didn’t quite work out according to plan. No worries though, I still have many years ahead to see the world. I love seeing the travelling and I am so Blessed to have seen some of the countries I have, however, there are so many other places I would like to see. Here is 30 items that are on my travel bucket list.

1. VISIT COLOMBIA

I have been wanting to visit Colombia for as long as I can remember now. The history, the culture, I almost did, but unfortunately it did not work out. However, I am determined to see the beautiful country within the next 12 months.

2. EXPLORE THE MOTHERLAND – ZIMBABWE

Maybe the most important on my travel bucket list is to explore Zimbabwe. Learn about where I am from, the culture and visit my family. How can I honestly travel the world and not see where I am from?!

3. BACHATA IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

República Dominicana! The home of Bachata and one of my favourites, Romeo Santos. Recently, I was watching a YouTube documentary about the history of Bachata and I literally fell in love.

4. ISLAND LIFE IN SICILY AND SARDINIA

I am sure you have read my posts from my trips to mainland Italy (if you haven’t go do so here). How can I visit the mainland, without visiting the two beautiful Italian islands?!

5. LIVE MY BEST LIFE IN PUERTO RICO

PR. The Island. Puerto Rico is not just the home of beautiful beaches, Daddy Yankee and reggaeton. Puerto Rico offers travellers an amazing party scene, history and a lot of culture.

6. SPONTANEOUS TRIP

I have always wanted to book a flight and leave on the same day. There is something about having the freedom to be so spontaneous that I would love to experience. One day. One day soon.

7. DANCE KIZOMBA IN ANGOLA AND MOZAMBIQUE

With the history of the Angola and Mozambique, I would love to visit these countries to meet locals and learn more. Kizomba is a beautiful and sensual dance and I would love to learn how to dance Kizomba from locals. Also, one of my closest friends in the world is from Mozambique.

8. CLIMB THE O2 IN LONDON, UK

One of London’s icons offers you the chance to view London in an incredibly unique way. Being a Londoner, I believe it is important to experience your back garden and not just the rest of the world – haha.

9. VISIT A MAASAI VILLAGE

I would love to visit a Massai Village, but I want to do more research into where the best one to visit would be. Reason being, you hear about tour guides ripping of the local people, which then in turn, they then tend to beg and try other methods of getting money from tourists. Which is where all the negative experiences for tourists comes from.

10. SNORKELING IN FIJI

With the amazing marine life and crystal blue waters, how could I not want to experience this part of Fiji.

11. LA TOMATINA FESTIVAL IN SPAIN

I know I know – I have heard quite a few things like “How could you waste all that food?!” etc. I completely understand that, however I would still like to experience La Tomatina Festival – just once.

12. NEON LIGHTS IN TOYKO, JAPAN

Toyko, Japan is known for it’s bustling streets and neon lights. Some of the places I have seen online are definitely a need to see in real life.

13. TRAVEL AROUND THAILAND

A popular destination for many, Thailand is a beautiful place with plenty to explore. My Fairy Godmother has a house in Thailand and visits every year, so hopefully I can join the sometime soon.

14. SUNRISE AND SUNSET AT CAPPADOCIA,TURKEY

There is something really magical about sunsets and sunrises. Cappadocia is beautiful and can be seen with many hot-air balloons flying over. I am hoping to visit Turkey soon and so I would definitely want to see Cappadocia.

15. TRAVEL AROUND CUBA

After visiting Cuba in 2017, I fell in love with the country and it’s people. While I was there I stayed in Havana and took a really short trip to Cienfuegos. I would love to visit Cuba again and travel around the country. Places I would love to see include, Varadero, Trinidad, Santiago de Cuba, and Cayo Coco.

16. AMERICAN ROAD TRIP

Have you really lived if you haven’t taken a road trip around America. I would love to do even just a mini-road trip – just to have the experience.

17. HORSE RIDING ON THE BEACH

I do not mind where in the world I do this, but I would LOVE to – especially during a sunset. It would be MAGICAL!

18. THE GRAND CANYON – ARIZONA, UNITED STATES

Arizona is one of those states that I have always wanted to visit and how could you visit Arizona and not head to the Grand Canyon.

19. EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC OF THE NORTHERN LIGHTS IN ICELAND

The Northern Lights are just one of those things you need to experience in your lifetime. Real life magic.

20. VISIT THE TAJ MAHAL IN INDIA

A spiritual and cultural experience with immense beauty that I would love to experience.

21. TRAVEL AROUND SOUTH AFRICA

South Africa. A beautiful country with a lot of history. I am also partially South African so I have to go and visit the land of my people – haha.

22. PRIDE ROCK IN KENYA

Lion King is one of my favourite countries of all time. How can I not run to Kenya and visit the Pridelands – haha. I want to visit Kenya in general and would love to see Pride Rock in real life.

23. CHERRY BLOSSOM SEASON IN JAPAN

Japanese Cherry Blossoms are beautiful and imagine being surrounded by them. Just like when its sunflower season in the UK. The perfect time to take a trip to Japan.

24. EXPLORE GALAPAGOS ISLAND, ECUADOR

The wildlife on Galapagos Island is amazing, unlike any other. I would love the opportunity to visit the island while its still striving.

25. VISIT PETRA IN JORDAN

From the images I have seen, Petra is beautiful and I would love to experience the history and picturesqueness of Petra. Petra is also one of the 7 wonders of the world, so how could I not go and found out why.

26. TAKE A TRIP TO SALAR DE UYUNI IN BOLIVIA

Honestly, how could you not visit the salt flats in your lifetime. Something so unique and beautiful. Just a breathe-taking experience I want to experience.

27. RAFTING ON THE ZAMBEZI RIVER IN ZIMBABWE

So I saw this one online and looks like an absolute thrill and quite scary. But I can imagine the adrenaline rush you’d get and the amazing sense of accomplishment when I come out on the other side. Why not live on the wild side.

28. TAKE A TRIP TO MACHU PICCHU IN PERU

When the travel bug first bit at my ankles, Machu Picchu and the Inca trail was one of the first places I had seen and been intrigued by. I would definitely want to take a trip in the near future.

29. CARNIVAL IN RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL

I have an amazing time at Notting Hill Carnival in London, imagine carnival in Rio. I have seen videos and photos and I will definitely definitely experience Rio Carnival.

30. LASTLY TO SEE THE WORLD!

Before my time leaving the world, I want to see as much of the world as possible. I would love to visit all 195 countries.

Maybe I will be able to complete all 30 things on my travel bucket list before I turn 30. Fingers crossed eh?! Please share in the comments what’s on your travel bucket list, maybe I might add some of yours to mine – haha.

    I’m with you on sooo many of these! I honestly just want to see the world haha! But the idea of booking a trip for that day and just going spontaneously has been on my mind for a while, I worry a lot about what to do when I’m there so if I did that I could just go and explore and not have to worry! Definitely visit Japan, it’s got such an amazing culture and atmosphere it’s like no other! xx

    Wow. What an incredible list. Hadn’t seen any of these places except Sicily. Which is my favorite place ever. Would like to dive into these adventures. Perhaps Tomatina is an option as i m living in Spain
