A while ago I posted the top 5 places on my travel bucket list. But there’s nothing like coming back from a trip to make you think about all the other places you really want to go to!
I’ve realised I was way too optimistic in keeping it to just 5, so I’m going to do a part deux, in order to give myself more things to tick off (or, stress myself even more with regards to too many places, not enough time and money!)
It looks so quaint, with it’s winding streets and old fashioned street trams (I’m a sucker for a tram). I’ve never been to Portugal as it’s never really appealed for a beach holiday, but city-wise it has a lot to offer me. I also want to go to Porto which is full of bright coloured houses. It’s possible to do both in one trip, travelling by train in between.
Wow. Tokyo just looks amazing. So bright, so busy, so frantic. I think it would be like nowhere else I’ve ever been and probably quite exhausting, but a total experience and feast for the eyes. Again it would be good to combine with more of Japan, like Osaka, and the connecting journey by bullet train would be a bucket list experience in itself.
The history! The architecture! It’s in Greece! (I love Greece!) I’ve looked into it and it’s feasible to add onto a trip to Santorini – fly into Athens from the UK, across to Santorini and then back to the UK. So hopefully, when we finally get around to going to Santorini, we can do Athens as well.
I’ve never been to Poland but it looks fab. I always imagine it as a winter city break, wandering round all wrapped up and eating stodgy Eastern European food, but apparently it’s beautiful all year round. Warsaw is also on my list. It never used to be, as I imagined it to be very Eastern Bloc and grey, but a work colleague went a couple of years ago and said it was very beautiful.
OK, so this is a huge cop out as I’m naming a country rather than a place! But it’s my blog and I make the rules! So much of America still to see. New York. The Deep South. Nashville. Dallas. Back to San Francisco to see more of it. So many possibilities. Next time we head over there I think we’ll make the most of the flight (both time and cost) and do a couple of places in one visit. Internal flights in the US are so cheap that it makes absolute sense.
So much of the world to explore…
What’s on your list?
Thanks, as always, for reading! x

Krakow is also on my list! If you’ve got Lisbon on your list you should definitely add Sintra – so fairytale beautiful.

Yes, I remember your pictures from last year! In fact it was your trip that made me look into Lisbon. So it’s all your fault! x
I’ve seen a lot of people write about Lisbon recently and it looks beautiful. Definitely on my list now! I’m doing a bullet train tour of Japan next year, I can’t wait!
Oh wow, that sounds amazing! Lucky you! x
I loooove Lisbon! I also really want to go Poland and to Athens! So many places to see!
Yes, so many! I haven’t heard anyone say anything bad about Lisbon. x
I live in Chattanooga, TN which is 2 hours east of Nashville. It’s cool here too, very scenic, much more natural. I do like Nashville though.
It’s good to have that mix of everything in easy reach Tony. Natural is good!
Canada, Ireland, Germany, Africa, Antartica. Wolves/snow, history, history/snow, cats, penguins/snow. I think you can see the pattern. 🙂
Japan, ALL of America…even the boring bits and including Hawaii and Alaska, Santorini, Amalfi Coast, and Burma because my Grandad was stationed there in the war. It seems like a pilgrimage I should make. And Burmese food is amazing! 🙂 mmm foooooood.
Krakow is beautiful…And ugly too in some areas but that just adds to the charm! If you’re at all interested in WWII history, there is so much of a story to tell here; you can’t miss Auschwitz x
