My Travel Bucket List

Three years ago I wouldn’t even have such a list. I never considered myself a traveler. I am more of a home body going to places I’m familiar with. However in the past three years I’ve gotten the chance to travel and experience things I’ve never done before. I’ve been to Los Angeles twice once to see The Biggest Loser Finale and another to attend a press junket for Real Steel and The Muppets. I visited San Diego to go to my first ever BlogHer11′ and New York to attend BlogHer12′. I’ve learned to love traveling and enjoying new experiences so I’m creating my bucket list of places I want to visit or experiences I want to have one day.

Travel Bucket List

  1. Grand Canyon
  2. Niagara Falls
  3. Jamaica
  4. Italy
  5. Las Vegas
  6. New Orleans
  7. Australia
  8. Hawaii
  9. Key West
  10. Paris

This probably a small list of some places that catch my fancy. I’m sure there are many other places that would be fun to visit. Though I’ve already been there I would actually love to visit New York, Chicago, Washington DC, and Los Angeles another time. Now that I can appreciate traveling more.

So where or what else should I have on my bucket list? Give me some great places to travel and I will add them to a Recommended Readers list.

  1. New Orleans, Mississippi, Tennessee, California, Las Vegas…

  2. I have been to Las Vegas, New Orleans, and technically Paris (but only at the airport). I have been to Munich (Germany) and think it is a fabulous place to go. Even if you don’t speak English, you will do fine.

  3. Hawaii and Alaska!

  4. Michelle Ayers says:

    I am planning on going to Las Vegas for my 40th birthday in April of 2015!

  5. Two places I’ve been that I would tell everyone they should visit would be Alaska and Gibraltar. I’ve been all over the world and those two places are spectacular. I also tell people that everyone that lives in a first world country should go to a third world country at least once in their lives. It’s amazing how your perception changes after such a trip.

    A place I’d love to go that I haven’t been to yet is New Zealand.

  6. Australia, Hawaii, and an African Safari for me πŸ™‚ I always wanted to go to Israel too, but now I’m too scared.

  7. Richard Hicks says:

    Nice bucket list for your future travels. I would love to go to Hawaii too.

  8. I’ve never really traveled and would love to. I’ll say an African Safari, Paris, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and I’d love to visit every state in the U.S. πŸ™‚

  9. those are all on my list too except a few. Grew up in Las Vegas, I’ve been to the grand canyon, and last year I went to Nola.

  10. Rhiannon Rowland says:

    I would love to visit all those places as well. I want to go to London some day and also want to visit the northwest especially Olympic National Park.

  11. I would love to see Australia or somwhere out of the country.

  12. I’d love to go to Israel. Just the idea of visiting the Dead Sea.. makes me hopeful!

  13. You’ve never been to Vegas! Ohhhh you have to go. Even if you aren’t into the gambling going for the atmosphere is so much fun.

  14. I have a travel bucket list too and many of those places are where I would love to go.

  15. Italy, Australia, Mexico and the Caribbean are on my bucket list!

  16. I want to go an an Alaskan cruise. Add Spain, Italy, France, and Scotland to that list too.

  17. Awesome list! I live in #5 lol but the rest are on my bucket list too!

  18. If you ever get to Niagara Falls, check out the “Grand Canyon of the East” Letchworth State Park. Breath taking views

  19. I don’t currently have a travel bucket list, but plan to in the future.

  20. Great list! I’ve been to 6 off yours and all the destinations are fab! I have an extensive bucket list, a few places are Japan, Iceland and the Galapagos Islands.

  21. I too love your list. Spain is another place I’d add to my list. I live near San Antonio but originally from Long Island. If I were you I’d add the New England states in autumn. Just a beautiful thing everyone should see.

  22. Vanessa: thequeenofswag says:

    All of those are on my list as well. I would love to go on a backpacking trip through Europe one day.

  23. I’d love to visit Italy or Paris someday, too. πŸ™‚

  24. New England is definitely on my list. πŸ™‚

  25. Las Vegas and Hawaii are definitely on my list!

  26. I crossed off the Grand Canyon this summer, and you will love New Orleans, it is an amazing place that just sucks you in. Ireland is at the top of my travel bucket list.

  27. I have done 1, 2, and 5. I have the pacific northwest on my list!!

  28. Rachel R. says:

    I have many of the same places on my travel bucket list. I’ve been to both Jamaica and Hawaii several times – Hawaii is amazing, we had some great adventures there πŸ™‚ I think our next big trip will be Europe.

  29. I would love to go to all those places too. Italy and France are on the top of my list.

  30. Fun!
    Grand Canyon
    Niagara Falls
    Las Vegas
    Key West

    All but one of yours would be on my list too! I’ve already been to NOLA!

  31. I have tons on my bucket list but the #1 place is Italy.

  32. Number one on my list is Italy, with Paris being a close second. I was lucky enough to vacation in Jamaica a couple of years ago and can not wait to return!

  33. Diane Paul says:

    I’d love to go to England! I was there in my college years and there was so much to do and see. Stay in London and take a train out to the countryside!
