I think this may be the first of several travel bucket lists I have. The problem with the internet is that it opens you up to new places and new dreams that you never even knew existed!! My list is pretty tame. I am not someone who craves adventure. Instead I love ocean views, hilly countrysides and most of my destinations have a pretty decent wine list. So (currently) here is my top ten:
1) Sicily – I have twice attempted to visit Sicily – both times were thwarted by my Calabrian family and the incredible prepared meals for us.
2) Santorini – When we were in Greece we ended up visiting right in the middle of the riots – as such – all ferries were on strike.
4) Nicoya, Costa Rica
5) France – all of it, except Paris.
7) Sardinia, Italy
8) New Zealand
Like I said pretty tame!! And most could probably be hammered out by any dedicated backpacker in 5 weeks. However, I am a slow traveler. I like to spend at least 2 weeks in any one country. I hate being on the rush, on the go. I do enough of that here at home.
I also have the “problem” of simply returning to where I’ve been. Italy especially. Part of my heart will always live there and I am constantly drawn to it. Now that I’m a mom I also like being familiar with a place before bringing my daughter there. It’s a sense of security I never needed before her.
So what tops your travel bucket list???
