Travel experiences I’d love to have *

#AD I’m definitely not the most well traveled person; I would be absolutely useless backpacking, I don’t want to go to Australia because I’m scared of the animals and Thailand looks beautiful but I hate getting too hot. But travel means different things to everyone and I certainly don’t think there’s anything wrong with not wanting to travel extensively and perhaps only going to a select few places or staying closer to home, like a staycation. But although I’m not the most ambitious person when it comes to my travel prospects, there are still some places I’d love to go and things I’d love to do! Do you agree with any of these?

Go on a cruise

I love water and the sea so to go on a family cruise holiday would be an absolute dream for me! There are so many types of wonderful sounding cruises to choose from, from a Disney cruise to a cruise around the fjords in Norway (which my boyfriend has annoyingly been on!) or a exotic trip around the greek islands – including Santorini which I’d love to go to -, whichever one you choose I can imagine it would be an amazing experience and that you’d feel a million miles away from your every day normal.

See the Aurora Borealis

I’m not sure there’s a person on the planet who doesn’t want to see the Aurora Borealis at some point in their life?! (Well, there probably is) I’ve always thought they looked beautiful from photos and I can imagine seeing them in real life is a completely magical experience.

See the cherry blossoms in full bloom in Shinjuku Gyo-en and experience Japan

I’d love to visit Japan one day and although I’d fully immerse myself in the culture and trying the food (I love fish and sushi so it’d be a dream to eat it in Japan!) I’d also love to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom, which doesn’t happen for very long each year so you’re lucky to catch them. But what an utterly beautiful sight that would be!

Visit Santa in Lapland

I’m a lover of the cold and I’m also fascinated with Scandinavia so Finland is definitely at the top of my list of places I’d like to travel to but more specifically… I think I’d like to head straight to Santa Claus Village, meet Santa, play in the snow, go on a sleigh ride and just have the most magical Christmas ever!

Go to the Austrian Grand Prix

Definitely not for everyone this one but not only is Austria another place I’d love to visit because I mean, have you seen photos of it?! It looks like an actual fairy-tale but if you know me, you’ll know I love myself a bit of Motorsport and I’m yet to go to a Formula 1 Grand Prix (although I did go to my first DTM race last year, which I mentioned here) and Austria would be my first choice because the track is in such a beautiful location!

I’d love to hear about the travel experiences you’d like to have or ones that you’ve been lucky enough to already experience! Let me know!

  1. oh my gosh, I would love to go to Japan and see the Cherry Blossoms, it’s an absolute dream of mine. I’d also love to go to Edinburgh again – I’ve been before, and it was my favourite UK holiday I have ever been on, it’s such a stunning place!

    1. I love a staycation but I’ve actually never been to Scotland?! 🤣 xx

  2. I have always heard great things about cruises xx

    1. Me too, they sound brilliant x

    Great picks! My husband and I went on a Disney cruise last year and have seen the cherry blossom in Japan, both fantastic! I really want to travel to Korea and New Zealand

    1. Oh my god!!! A Disney cruise would be my ultimate dream!

  4. I’d love to visit all of these places. Each is so amazing in its own way.

    1. I’m sure it is!

  5. I’ve been on quite a few cruises now and I cannot recommend them enough!! x

    1. Wow lucky you!

  6. I went to see the cherry blossoms in Tokyo and honestly it was one of the highlights of my life. They are just so beautiful and I want to go back!

    1. Awh wow! I’m so jealous (but not at all surprised!)

  7. I’ve been pretty lucky over the years to cross a number of things off my bucket list – including seeing my rugby team (the All Blacks) play in London on my birthday a few years ago; see the Edinburgh Tattoo and visit NYC.. but there are even more that I want to do – #1 on my list is visit Petra in Jordan … soooo many things!

    1. Sounds like some good things you’ve ticked off!

  8. Travelling is such amazing experience, but I totally agree that it means different things to different people! My family got into cruising around two years ago now, and it is the best kind of holiday. They’re unreal, and we truly fell in love with them. How amazing that your boyfriend has already done a cruise of the fjords! Great post xx

    1. Oh wow, so jealous! I’d love to go on a cruise in my life xxx

    I’ve always wanted to go to Lapland! Anywhere cold is my bag, and Svalbard is on the top of my list. I hope you get to experience these someday!

    1. Same here – would much prefer somewhere cold!

  10. Santorini is such a beautiful island, I’d love to visit it again sometime. The Aurora Borealis and Japan are both on my list as well, I love sushi and noodle dishes so this would be the perfect destination to try new food. There is a Santa Claus Village? I need to go there, it sounds magic! Thanks for sharing Jenny, great post… I really want a holiday now, he he! <3 xxx

    1. There sure is! Sushi and noodles are the best, I’d be right at home in Japan. So jealous you’ve been to Santorini! xxx

  11. My dad has just been to see the Northern lights and it was so beautiful!

    Love, Amie ❤

    1. Oh wow! Jealous!

  12. I’m actually reading a book right now that’s set in the Norwegian fjords and it’s making me want to go there so badly omg! xx

    1. Ah! I bet it woudlD!

  13. I went solo travelling to Spain last year and I LOVED it! I saw some amazing places but this year, I want to go to Malta and Berlin at Christmas x

    1. I’m so jealous and also so in awe that you did that! You should write some posts about it 😌 if you haven’t already! Xxx

  14. I agree with you on the Aurora Borealis, I would love to see that some day. Also on my list is New Zealand!

    1. It’s be amazing would it. Ooh NZ is a good shout x

  15. I love vacations especially now that I have kids and I get to see how excited they get. I have been on a cruise and it was amazing! We go to Niagara Falls once every couple years and that’s a great time too. I think any vacation with the family is great!

    Matt –

    1. Oh wow I’d love to visit Niagara Falls!

      1. It is quite amazing! You should find a way to make it happen this year. It was my favorite vacation we took last year. (We were able to go on three vacations last year)

  16. I’d also love to do a cruise! I have a few family members who go every year and absolutely love it. I think it’s such a good way of being able to just chill and relax but at the same time have chance to get out and explore xx

    1. Exactly! That’s why I’d love to do it. When I’m on holiday I want to relax but then I feel bad if I relax too much and don’t “do” anything so I think a cruise would be perfect for me!

  17. Sounds like some great advice babe, I would adore to go on a cruise but sadly my tummy can’t take going on boats anymore. I’m hoping to travel and explore more in 2019 though 🌸💜

    With love, Alisha Valerie x |

    1. Ah that’s a shame, hope you manage to do some more travelling!

  18. Some really great ideas to visit! 😀

    I’d love to go to Japan or Korea, mostly to explore all the stores due to my love of their skincare & beauty! I’d be in my idea of heaven! lol

    I have had the pleasure of visiting Italy and Venice was one of the places I visited whilst there. Maybe I was too young to appreciate it as I was only 15 and I actually didn’t like it that much. I just remember the horrible smell.

    Hawaii is somewhere I’d love to go too. 🙂

    1. Oooh Hawaii! That’s a good shout! 😌

  19. Some great choices. We’re going to Morocco at the end of September – hopefully it will be a bit cooler. Can’t wait for Yoga on the beach at sunrise and maybe finally giving surfing a go! x

  20. I dream of having a van, taking my bike an snowboard and touring Europe x

    1. Wow sounds fun!

  21. I really did enjoy reading this. Great ideas.
    Watching the Aurora Borealis is definitely on my bucket list. Hopefully this new year could bring me more travels

    1. Thank you 😌 Hope you manage to see them!

      1. Sadly I still haven’t 😢 I do hope I’d find the opportunity to do so. I do hope the same thing for you as well. If I can’t.. might as well read it in your blog post right? 😊 I do enjoy reading your blog post.

  24. Lovely post idea!! Traveling is great because you can make it suit you and your interests. I haven’t done too much travelling yet but I would love to.
    Cruises look great– relaxing and exploring in balance together. My friend went to see the Norwegian fjords on a cruise too– I was very jealous.
    I too want to see the Aurora Borealis– I imagine it’s a very unique experience.
    The blossom in Japan is Amazing– whenever I see a picture I just want to go. 😂
    Austria looks great and like you said straight out of a fairy tale.
    On of my top places I would love to go is Iceland— I love the waterfalls there!! 😍
    Great post— I hope you get to have these travel experiences 😊

    1. Thank you! I totally agree with everything you’ve said. I’m so jealous of the people who went on the Norwegian cruise!

      1. You’re welcome 😊
        I know it looks so nice– one day we will get there 😂
