I’m not sure what’s gotten into me recently but I’ve started to really look at life and really think about how I am living now as opposed to how I want to be living in the future. I still want to focus a lot on my future but I want to enjoy the present just as much too. I watched a video earlier today (I’ll post it below) and it made me think of a good idea for a blog post. What would I do if money was no object? At the end of the day we have to be realistic here – money is an object – it’s not realistic to just quit our jobs and go sailing off around the world (as wonderful as that would be) we do have to work to get to where we want to be. But that doesn’t mean we have to stop living in the present and thinking about what we would do if money wasn’t an object. I would travel with my little family, take wonderful photos and video montages and write a blog. Where would I go? Well, I’m glad you (kind of) asked! Here is my travel bucket list – from places I’ve been to places I want to go.
Why? Behind the reasoning of why I want to go to many of these places is usually a silly ol’ story that I’ve clung onto way too tightly and can’t let go. Most places I want to go feel a little sentimental and in some sense perhaps ridiculous. For example, I really would love to visit Verona after watching a film called ‘Letters to Juliet’ it’s a chick flick and is pretty cheesy.. but just SO good! It’s a guilty pleasure. The film was set here, where Romeo and Juliet is based, and after researching more about the city I have fallen in love with the idea of visiting. It’s beautiful cobbled streets and amazing cityscapes. It looks like such a romantic place to visit and I hope one day we can go!
Why? Another silly reason behind why I would like to go to Mykonos. I love the band ‘Fleet Foxes’ and in particular their song ‘Mykonos’. I didn’t even know what Mykonos was until I googled it and again, after looking more into the destination and it’s beautiful culture and amazing views I just fell in love. I really, really fell in love. It looks beautiful. I love the white, the blue, the pure beautifully cobbled streets. Ahhh, take me to Mykonos! We are thinking of booking our summer holiday here for next year – fingers crossed.
Why? So this is a place I have been to twice and if I had my way I would just live there. I would live in Cinderella’s castle itself, I’m sure Cinderella wouldn’t mind, right? Both times I’ve been do Disneyworld Florida I have had SO much fun. It genuinely feels like childhood. Like the happiest place in the world. (as cheesy as that is!) Not only Disneyworld but Orlando itself. I love America. I think my heart lays in the USA as opposed to boring ol’ England. I’m pretty sure I’m secretly born American.
Why? Again, this is somewhere I have been before. In fact I could almost call this destination my second home or my home from home. I’ve genuinely lost count of the amount of times I’ve been here. At one point we was visiting twice a year every year. It’s beautiful. I love Turkey. It never really appealed to me until my parents took me there on a family holiday once and I literally fell in love. With the people, the beaches, the markets, the towns, the cities, the culture. Everything! I love how I know the place as though it’s the back of my hand and I love the friends we have made over there. Take me back?
Why? Ah, Lapland. somewhere I have never been but would absolutely LOVE to go. I’m not very good with the cold, so I don’t really know how I would get on here. but I can’t help but want to see the Northern lights and ride a sleigh and take beautiful photos in the snow and so on and so on.
I would love to know the places you’d like to go? Or your favourite places?
