My World Travel Bucket List 

Following on from my post about what places I still have to visit in Ireland, I thought I’d share with you which places I want to explore around the world.

It’s hard to achieve this with two small children but luckily I have a great hubby who let’s me travel abroad once a year on my own.

My bestie Karo from Germany is big into traveling just like me. She wants to see the world but on your own it can be hard sometimes so that’s why we are traveling together every year to achieve our goals and tick off the destinations. For example this year we went to New York for a week. I have visited twice in the past but she has never been and there were still some sights that I didn’t manage to visit.

Without any further stories, read on about the beautiful places on earth I still need to visit…

World Travel Bucket List

Road Trip To Las Vegas/San Francisco

Being the far West of the USA, it’s not easy to tick off this destination. It has been on my mind so many times though that I do need of travel here in the next 5 years, if not even less. While in Las Vegas, we could rent a car and travel the west coast like you see it in the movies and include San Francisco on it too. Los Angeles has to be included too


Well…why Florida? I want to go to Disney World. I’m such a child right? But you’re never too old to like Disney. This one I will definitely experience with my kids though when they are a bit older.

Explore Dubai 

I’ll be visiting this city sooner than I think if it all goes to plan. My 30th birthday is coming up in January. I don’t do parties so instead I want to travel. As January is quite cold in most countries, Dubai is the ideal spot to travel to, enjoy some sun but also do a bit of sightseeing in and around.

Discover The Islands of Hawaii

I have always been a fan of Hawaii. Even more since watching Hawaii-Five-O. Maybe one day… There are about 5 different islands you can discover as well as several volcanoes. The dance of Hula looks also quite appealing.


I actually can’t believe that I have never been to either Denmark, Finland, Sweden or Norway. It’s so close to Ireland and even closer to Germany. In Finland they have these glass igloo hotels which look pretty impressive.


I think everyone needs to do a trip to Italy. Simply for the hospitality and the boats riding on the river.

Snorkel In The Great Barrier Reef Australia

This continent has so much to offer. You probably have to spend a whole month over to discover all the places. I’d be happy enough with just Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef.

Climb The Eiffel Tower In Paris 

I have been to Disneyland as a child but I’ve never visited Paris itself. Eiffel tower is definitely on my list, everything else is a bonus.

Walk on the Great Wall of China

I got a little taste of China when Karo and I went to Chinatown in New York. That was mad enough. I can only imagine what it’s like to be in actual China. The China wall is something I have in mind for sure.

Visit the Pyramids in Egypt

I’d love to visit the pyramids. I am generally not a big fan of history in itself but this would certainly be interesting. A cruise on the river Nile would be another great adventure or a safari into the Great Sand Sea.

Explore a Rain Forest in Brazil 

I always dreamt of walking through a rain forest… guided of course. You never know what you find on the way. It just sounds so exciting. For example the Amazon rain forest.

Take a Safari in the Serengeti of Tanzania – Africa

The Serengeti Park is very popular and what else can you do other than a safari through it.

Take a Cruise 

In the last maybe 2 years I seem to have got attracted to going on a cruise ship. Previously to that I didn’t like being on a ship. Probably because I may get seasick. Even so I’d love to be on one one day. It doesn’t have to be the Atlantic Ocean… The Mediterranean Sea or near Norway will do. I’ve also read a lot of good things about the Disney cruise.

Holiday in Dominican Republic

What I would give for a two week holiday in the Dominican Republic. Just lying on the beautiful white beaches, jumping into the blue ocean, having a cocktail by the beach bar. It’s okay to dream right?

  1. Fantastic list all brilliant destinations. It’s wonderful you have created a list. I wish you every success in check these destinations and experiences off your list.
    Looking forward to reading about your experiences.

  2. Totally come to Australia! I haven’t heard anyone who has visited regret it. Sydney has a TON to do, and so do Queensland and Victoria. As a (now) local, I still can’t get enough of Sydney and we try to visit the city when we can.

  3. What a fabulous list. I’ve been to a few of these places. We went to Vegas and Hawaii on our honeymoon which was amazing. I’ve also climbed Kilimanajro but would love to do a safari. Hope you get to see everything on your list x

  4. You definitely have to go. You want to come back all the time once you’ve been.

  5. I was looking at Hawaii and the flight prices are very expensive unfortunately. I’d need to save up for that. x

  6. It’s always nice to have a bucket list, even if you don’t get there, Its nice to have it all set out so you can tick things off (one day). 🙂
