We all have some form of travel bucket list, even if only in our minds. I absolutely love writing lists and then crossing things off (I have notebooks filled with actioned lists, it is so satisfying!) and decided writing down some travel dreams were a good way of keeping oneself accountable and to give me something to work towards. Naturally I want to visit nearly every place on this earth, so as not to bore you, here are some highlights of my list.
♥ See the midnight sun rolling over the horizon in Nordkapp, Norway
I actually tried to see this back in June 2007. However the weather had other ideas and I soon found myself in blizzard conditions (in the middle of summer! Humf!)

What I actually saw – ripped off!
♥ Visit Lake Bled in Slovenia
Breathtakingly beautiful, I cannot wait to see Lake Bled for myself and explore Slovenia.
♥ Go on a yoga retreat somewhere, anywhere.
I’ve been practicing yoga for several years now and would love to escape for a few weeks on a yoga retreat to focus on myself and my practice.
♥ Explore the Balkans
I have seen a LOT of Europe, however I am yet to visit this part of Europe including Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania etc.
♥ Visit China and see sights such as the Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Warriors and the Forbidden City
♥ See the Northern Lights in Iceland
Both times I have been to Iceland were in the summer, when the Northern Lights aren’t visible. Next time!
♥ Stay overnight in a Buddhist temple on Mount Koya in Japan
Staying in a temple alongside Buddhist monks sounds like an amazing experience.
♥ Visit the salt flats of Bolivia
I am yet to set foot in South America, there are so many sights to see and the salt flats of Bolivia is high up there!
♥ Visit Greenland
I am so fascinated by this isolated and gorgeous country and its people.
This list could go on and on but this is just a taster of what I hope to experience sometime in the (hopefully) near future. Now I just need to win the lottery and clear my schedule for next year! ;)
