I’m not a huge traveler in the sense that you probably won’t ever find me backpacking around Thailand or moving to Australia for a year. Firstly, those places are far too hot for my delicate ginger complexion but mostly, it’s just not my sort of thing. I love a holiday – as most of us do – but lengthy travel isn’t for me. However, lately, I’ve discovered that there are plenty of places I would absolutely love to visit. In an ideal world, if I were to win a hefty amount on the lottery, I’d certainly be booking some holidays and short breaks to the places in this list. But in the meantime, I can just dream. Here’s my 2018 travel bucket list (or where I’d go if I won the lottery!)
Finland is probably the top of my list. My boyfriend and I have a bit of an affinity with Finland, it seems like such a laid-back place and the people are so chill (like, figuratively, not literally). Also, I love the cold. So it’d be my ideal place for a holiday. I’d like to visit Scandinavia and have a different type of holiday and Finland would be my perfect place for this!
I’m not one for huge cities but I think Beijing would be a lovely holiday. I’d certainly go in the cooler months (we’ve covered this, I don’t like heat!) I think I’d enjoy the hustle and bustle and there always being something to do and something to look at. Plus, Chinese food!

I only recently realised how much I wanted to go to Copenhagen after watching an episode of Paul Hollywood’s City Bakes, when he goes and tries local and tradional Danish food, cakes and pastries. Not only does the food there look amazing, the city itself is beautiful. And I love the Hygge idea so I think I’d love it there.
Already been 3 times. Does that mean it can’t feature on my list? Absolutely not. I think every single year, in an ideal world, I would want to go to Disneyland. So every year until I finally do go again, it’ll be on my list! I need my fix of fun rides, meeting my favourite characters and looking in awe at the castle.
I have no particular place in Germany I’d like to go but just Germany as a whole really appeals to me. I really love the German language – it’s one I’d love to learn and have attempted a few times on my Duolingo app but to no luck! Nuremberg looks like an absolutely gorgeous, Gothic type city with beautiful buildings so maybe there for my visit!
Not one you probably thought you’d see feature on my list but I absolutely adore the look and sound of Israel – especially Jerusalem. I’m not religious, really, but I find religious fascinating. I studied it extensively in school (I did extra Religious Studies lessons and took it for A Level) and I love the idea of 3 main religions all living harmoniously in in the same area. The buildings are beautiful and I’ve heard the people are lovely too. This would be such an amazing trip.
There we go! There’s my 2018 travel bucket list. I’m not confident I’ll be able to tick any of these off my list but there’s always next year! Where would you like to go this year? Got any trips booked? Let me know!
