This is the time of year for resolutions. Everyone makes these lofty goals, gets that new gym membership, starts that new diet… well my passion is traveling so here are my top 10 vacation destinations (wait for it) that I want to make happen over the next 2 years.
After my breakup last year I decided I wanted to get lost in travel, promising myself to not hesitate even for a second when it came to wanting to explore new places and experience new cultures even though I had never traveled alone. I decided the best way would be to jump into the deep end and go to the furthest place possible and just do it, no hesitation. I picked Tokyo and loved it. Booked it just a few weeks out, planned excursions for every day, and had the time of my life. I felt like I had just unlocked a secret level in a video game…
If I can do Tokyo alone, I can go anywhere…
[Give me a couple seconds as I let that sink in: I’m. Going. To. AUSTRALIA. In. March. Ok, im good now.]
If you had asked me last year my top 3 places I wanted to travel to in my life I’d have picked those three. It wouldn’t have even been conceivable to me that I could do all 3 in 7 months. No hesitations. And it’s not like I’ve even drastically changed my spending habits. I’ve just looked for deals and taken them. They’re out there. And now that I know I can do this I wanted to put together my dream list of vacation destinations. Before this would have been a ‘bucket list’, as in ‘do these before you die’. Forget that. I want to do these in the next two years and then make another list.
So, in no particular order, letting the pictures do the talking, these are the countries I want to be checking off my list over the next 2 years:
- The Netherlands
- South Africa
I don’t know if you noticed, but there’s 11 spots in my top 10. I don’t care! When you see these pictures, doesn’t your brain go to a happy place and you just picture yourself there having the time of your life? Mine does. These places are all there for the taking, and while getting them all in over the next two years might be pushing it, I’m going to absolutely enjoy trying. Has anyone been to these places already? What are some other spots I need to add to future lists? Here’s to wanderlust!
