For me the 2017 holiday season has drawn to an end which has me with a massive feeling of wanderlust dreaming and planning future trips. I count myself very lucky that I have done more travelling in the past 3 years than I ever thought I would and I am now at the point where there’s just more places that I want to visit than I have time – and money – to commit to.
Here are some of the travel experiences I’d love to have:
See the Northern Lights
Iceland has been on my wishlist for absolute years and I am really hoping that the New Year period between 2018 and 2019 will be when my dream becomes a reality. I know going in December will be incredibly cold but I also know it’s a good time of the year for the Northern Lights to appear and I’ll cope with the cold if it even means one glimpse of Aurora Borealis. There’s so much more I’d love to do in Iceland such as visit the Blue Lagoon, do the Game of Thrones tour and visit the elf and fairy museums.
Go on a cruise
Me and my boyfriend have spoken quite a few times about going on a cruise especially as his parents have done quite a few with the Royal Caribbean before. I never really thought a cruise was for me but seeing how incredible the ship looks sold me, like a whole city on a boat is incredible. And being in a new location each day also appeals, it gives you a good taster of what a place is like and whether it’s somewhere you’d love to go back to. I’ve seen some cool Mediterranean ones with Bolsover Cruise which look incredible but I know to do it right it will cost quite a lot.
See the magic of Disney Orlando at Halloween
Disney in Orlando is another huge bucket list item but going there at Halloween would be an absolute dream as it means there would be so much more Nightmare before Christmas stuff around. From the Halloween parade and the characters I know it would be incredible. I went to Disneyland Paris once for Halloween and that was incredible enough so I know this would be another level.
Swim in my own private infinity pool
I love the idea of an infinity pool but having your own private one just outside the back of your hotel/ villa room would be incredible. I haven’t had a completely relaxing holiday for a long time but know this would be one of those where all I want to do is sunbathe, read and swim. Me and my boyfriend have already started looking at potential holiday destinations for his 30th birthday which is only 16 month’s away and one place we found was in Thailand and had it’s own heart shaped infinity pool, I definitely fell a bit in love with the property so who knows if Thailand is when I might tick this off my bucket list.
