Places I’d Like To Visit

I have been meaning to write this post for a while now and seeing other bloggers share similar posts has given me the push I needed to crack on with my own list. I haven’t ever been out of New Zealand or had a proper holiday and surprisingly my travel list is quite small. Maybe some of these choices will surprise you!

1. England/The UK

I thought I’d start with the obvious one! I am slightly obsessed with The UK and when I was a teenager I even wanted to move there. Now that I’m a bit older I figure it would make sense to visit first before committing to a move. I’d love to travel all over, big cities like London and Manchester but smaller, quaint towns too. I’d have to visit Yorkshire as that’s where my boyfriend is from. His dad was giving me a tour of York using Google Maps and everything looked so beautiful. I’d like to travel to Scotland and Ireland, with my hair they might think I was a local!

2. Paris

The romantic in me would love to travel to Paris. People seem to either love or hate Paris but I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to go. To eat proper French pastries and bread and see the Eiffel Tower would be magical. It would be logical to visit Paris for a couple of days during my visit to The UK, the countries are so close together and if I didn’t like it I haven’t committed to a whole trip on it’s own.

3. Bermuda

I will admit until earlier this year I barely knew anything about Bermuda. I watched some races in the Amercia’s Cup that was held in Bermuda and thought how nice the water and scenery looked on screen. The population is roughly 65,000 and the temperatures aren’t hot and tropical – I don’t like heat. The best part of all is that there is a beach with pink sand; Elbow Beach. British singer Louise Redknapp called her third album Elbow Beach after the place she married her husband.

4. Bora Bora

In the tiny bit of research I did for this post I discovered Bora Bora is like the Maldives but cheaper. Bora Bora has some of the clearest water and gorgeous beaches and seems to have a lovely relaxing, resort feel. I imagine it would be very peaceful and good for escaping. The only slight deterrent would be temperature but there is all that water and I’m sure there’s air conditioning right?!

5. Belgium

When searching for pictures of Belgium online the first thing that struck me was how beautiful they looked. I don’t know a lot about Belgium apart from they’re good at making chocolate and it’s where Hercule Poirot is from. The country seems intriguing and I assume it wouldn’t be the typical place for people to visit.

What does your travel wishlist look like? Do you have a favourite place you’ve traveled to?

    I always wanted to travel to England and Ireland — and I finally did just a couple of weeks ago! Like you, I wanted to get these ones out of the way before I commit to something like mortgage.
    In the future, maybe somewhere like California or other cities in the US. Hope you knock some of those places off your travel list πŸ™‚

      I’ve seen your photos from The UK on Instagram, I’m only a little bit jealous haha! I actually think I wouldn’t mind the cold as I prefer that to being hot. Hope you get to your places too πŸ™‚

    Bora Bora😍 It’s so pricey from the UK, it’d be cheaper for me to go the Maldives. Yes! Come to the UK you’d love itπŸ˜™ And you’re right, Paris is only a train ride away. I loooove Belgium. Bruges is so romantic and quaint, I love it thereπŸ’• My travel wish list is to go everywhere, but my fave places have been Iceland, Bruges in Belgium, Malta, New York and Norway xx

    Even before I clicked open this post, I knew #1 would be UK! I can’t wait for when you visit there – it will be so amazing! I highly recommend a visit to Scotland, one of my favourite places.
    I recommend visiting Iceland and Denmark – I enjoyed my trip to both places.
    My bucket list includes Peru, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Morocco, South Africa… too many to name, really.
    PS. I’m one of those people who hates Paris. πŸ˜†

      I’m that predictable 😝 When I get to The UK I will be in my element! Scotland is on the list too πŸ™‚
      Scandinavia does intrigue me and I wouldn’t rule out wanting to visit places there.
      Even though Australia is our neighbour I’ve never really wanted to visit, I guess because it’s hotter than us and it’s close to home so wouldn’t feel like much of a getaway.
      Can I ask why you hate Paris?

    I’d love to go to Paris, but I know it’s one of those places that seems to have such a Love/Hate split – still feel like it’s somewhere you ‘have to’ go to at least once in your lifetime though. It’s so expensive though even coming from the UK, the flight is about an hour from London but costs can be crazy! Last time I looked a weekend would have cost us roughly Β£800 with flights and hotels!

    York is absolutely lovely, one of my favourite UK cities for sure! My parents had some friends come over from New Zealand this weekend to stay with them for a week – they’ve been in love with it here and all the buildings with history – I’ve never really thought about the fact that you don’t have 1,000 year old churches and cathedrals over there!

      I’m with you on the Paris thing, didn’t realise it was so expensive though!

      New Zealand doesn’t have buildings like that, it’s a relatively new country, only a couple of hundred years old. Seeing all the ancient buildings and sites would be interesting πŸ™‚ I hope your parents friends are enjoying their visit!
