My Current Bucket List

My Current Bucket List

If you’re an avid traveler, chances are good that your bucket list is an ever-changing thing.  I get it, it’s hard to nail down places you want to go in an orderly fashion when there is a constant stream of new options coming at you at light speed.  It doesn’t take more than a pretty photograph or a good write up to make me when to set oof to whatever destination is being advertised.  I suppose that’s what they mean when they say wanderlust.  There are some constants, but the destinations on the low end of my travel bucket list get swapped out daily.  If I had to choose, absolutely had to, my current bucket list would include the following:

  1. Machu Picchu, Peru – Hopefully, I will be crossing this one off my list this year!  I would love to spend a month or two exploring Lima, Cusco and hiking to Machu Picchu.  Peru is such a beautiful country, and I can not wait to explore it.

  2. Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada – There are seriously no bad photos of this place.  Every single one I see makes me want to jump in and climb those mountains.  Banff National Park would be the perfect endpoint to a road trip across Canada.

  3. Paris, France – Paris is always the dream, isn’t it?  Not only is it a gorgeous, historic and cultural destination, but I would love to just eat cheese and baguettes and drink wine for every meal, always.  I’ve been day-dreaming of getting a one way ticket and wandering around Paris until I’m good and ready to come home.

  4. Halong Bay, Vietnam – Vietnam in general has fascinated me for a long time, and Halong Bay, specifically, is drawing me in.  This beautiful paradise in the north of Vietnam seems like the perfect escape.  Jungles, Caves, Cruises, Kayaking… I am in.

  5. Marrakech, Morocco – Ever since I read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho a few years ago, I have romanticized Morocco.  It’s so colorful and different than any other place I’ve ever been.  I want to try all of the cuisine, shop the markets and I’m determined to ride a camel.  I need to go there actually, it’s a must.

  6. Copenhagen Denmark – Is there anything more charming than the architecture in Copenhagen?  In fact, the whole city has me so enchanted, I feel like I should buy the plane ticket right now.  The colorful buildings, the boats in the canal, the castles… sign me up!

  7. Acadia National Park, Maine –I am a little bit obsessed with Maine.  It looks so beautiful and I love seafood and I LOVE Stephen King (most of his stories are set in Maine).  Acadia National Park is gorgeous and I’d love to set myself up in a cabin by the sea there and write.

    I’m sure they’ll be different tomorrow, or joined by more choices, but for now I will continue to dream about them.  Stay tuned for more bucket list ideas in a new installment on rebeccawanderlusting for Wanderlust Wednesday.
