My Travel Bucket List

I have been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to visit 29 different countries so far—some on cruises and some from when I studied abroad and could travel nearly every weekend. But, despite my many travels in life thus far, there are still many places I’d like to visit! 

1. Norway (to see the Northern Lights)

I have Norwegian ancestry on both my maternal and paternal side (I mean, Olsen), so of course, I want to go and see where my family is from! I even still have cousins there. It would be a big bonus if I got to see the Northern Lights while I was there.

2. Ireland

My mom’s side is also very Irish; I would love to see that part of Ireland! Apparently, we still have some castles somewhere! I’m not really a beer drinker, but I still think it would be a beautiful and fun place to visit.

3. The Maldives

The pictures alone should explain this! Those over-water bungalows? Yes, please.

4. The Grand Canyon

Believe it or not, we never saw the Grand Canyon while living in Arizona! It was way too long of a drive. But I would love to go back for a visit and see it!

5. Nepal

A few years ago, I strongly considered doing my own “Eat, Pray, Love,” and, based on my research and where I felt ‘called’ to, Nepal would be my “pray” spot. I wanted to stay in the mountains, meditate, and pray. I ended up not booking that trip, but someday, I’d love to visit Nepal and experience all it offers!

6. Safari in the Serengeti

I have always wanted to do some sort of safari! It would be so cool to see all the animals. I want to see a wild elephant in person so badly!

7. Glowworm Caves in New Zealand

To be honest, I don’t know a ton about NZ, but these caves just look so cool! I have heard it’s a beautiful country, and I’m sure I’d find many other places to visit and explore. Plus, I’ll be closer to my best friend!

8. Alaska

I’m the only one in my family who hasn’t been to Alaska, but hopefully soon! My fiance and I want to do an Alaskan cruise in the near future. There’s so much to see!

9. Morocco

In middle school, my mom and I went to Epcot and actually walked around the countries for the first time. Ever since, I’ve been obsessed with Morocco. I’ve heard it’s beautiful, so I hope to go someday!

10. Singapore

Yes, “Crazy Rich Asians” inspired this! It just looks so luxurious, beautiful, and exciting! And I’ve heard the food is incredible.

There are so many places I’d love to go to, both in the USA and outside the country, and I can’t wait to cross them off my list! Are there any places that you’re especially interested in going to?

Let me know!
