My Top 3 Bucket List Travel Destinations


Wanderlust is permanently on my mind and I like to indulge in it as often as possible. 

With so many places I want to travel to, my bucket list of travel destinations is forever growing. I bought this cute little globe as a memento of my desire to travel, and as a reminder of just how many places I've yet to visit. 

I've been fortunate enough to have explored many places already, and some destinations have been so incredibly amazing that I would go back to again in a heartbeat. But there are too many places I want to go to, and to try narrowing it down to my top 3 is beyond hard. 

This was the bloggers challenge set by Transun for a chance to win a trip for 2 to see the Northern Lights! Enter the bucket list competition for your own chance to win, all post entries must be submitted by Thursday 30th April. Transun have been in business since 1982, specialising in tours for Northern Europe with fun experiences in tow. The Northern lights is just one of the many experiences they offer, and how amazing does a husky safari sound?!   

After much thinking, umming and ahhhing, here is my top 3 bucket list travel destinations which I hope to crack in the near future. This is on top of obviously wanting to go and see the Northern lights! 


1)   SANTORINI
There's no denying that the white washed houses with bright blue roof tops sitting on top of the Aegean sea is just so breathtakingly beautiful. To me, it's one of the most romantic places on earth. The twilight view of Santorini just send chills down my spine, there's no place quite like it.


2)    TAIWAN

If there was ever a food heaven on earth, Taiwan would be one of them. I'd previously dismissed Taiwan as a city similar to Hong Kong - my second home, so I never had the urge to go. That was until I started following Instagrammers/FB friends from Taiwan and their food photos had me going ga-ga. I also came to learn that the Taiwanese are quite heavily influenced by Japanese culture whether in their food or fashion (I love Japan!) and Taiwan is home to many beautiful outdoor springs. The lakes, mountains and temples are so tranquil, it almost feels as if you could be a part of an ancient painting. City life along with picturesque scenery, relaxation and restoration; Taiwan has it all.


3)   CAMBODIA
When I make it to Cambodia, the first place I'll be heading to is Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat literally means 'heaven on earth'. With its intoxicating history, its spectacular temples and monuments, the intricate details in the carvings, it's easy to see how it got it's name. Cambodia's rising sea level means one day, it may not exist anymore and whilst it's still intact, I want to see this beautiful place for myself.


What are your top 3 bucket list travel destinations? I would love to know. Please send me a link to read if you enter the competition with your blog post!
