My top 10 travel wish list

Dream travel destinations, who doesn’t have them? No matter if it’s close to home or on the other side of the world, more touristy or less popular, I believe everyone has some kind of a travel wish list.

The below list is not my ultimate “I will visit at some point in my life” kind of list (if it was, I could just copy and paste the list of all the countries in the world). This is more of a “visit soon” kind of list. My current top 10 travel wish list, in no particular order:

1. Tasmania

Famous for its outstanding food, beautiful sights and great walks – sounds every bit like a place I would love, I’m very surprised I haven’t visited yet.

2. Japan

I just returned from Tokyo. It was my first time in Japan, we’ve learned a lot about Tokyo and loved everything about it. Now the plan is to return (during summer or early autumn) and see more of this amazing country.

3. Vietnam

Almost everyone I know already visited Vietnam and they all have that blissful smile on their faces when asked how was the trip? Stories they tell about the best street food they’ve ever eaten, the nicest people they’ve ever encountered, gorgeous places they’ve seen and how relaxed they felt, make me want to jump on the next plane to Vietnam. I really hope Vietnam trip is coming very very soon for me.

4. USA

Whaaaaaat? – I can now almost hear people who know me well. But then they quickly realize how often I change my ideas and preferences. Yes, US is now on my list. And it’s here kind of twice… I want to visit New York, similar kind of trip to my recent Tokyo visit – just a big city and us. The second one is a roadtrip, and it better be a long one as I’d love to see everything from San Fransisco, through Yosemite National Park, Salt Lake City and Yellowstone to Seattle.

5. Canada

Mountains. There are so many great opportunities for hiking, I’m having trouble containing my excitement. Take me there any time except winter and I’ll be extremely happy.

6. Dubai

I’m fascinated by Dubai – especially the architecture, I can’t wait to see it (I’ve seen Dubai from a plane, but that doesn’t count). Definitely going to do a few-days-long stopover during my next flight to Europe.

7. Australia

Don’t you live in Australia Aga? Yes, I do live here. But living and seeing are two different things. I want to SEE Australia. Not just the bigger cities – I want to roadtrip East and West coasts, I want to go far North and to the red centre, I want to see some islands (Lord Howe, Kangaroo) and visit the prettiest beaches.

8. Borneo

Yet another place, that simply fascinates me. One of the oldest rainforests in the world, abundance of animals, caves and hikes. Sounds like a great adventure, I’m in.

9. Poland

Wait a second, aren’t you from Poland? Looks like I have some explaining to do again. I was born in Poland and lived there for over 20 years. Now I’m ashamed to admit, I haven’t seen half of the country and being on the other side of the world is not helping me change that. I hope to go back and play a tourist in my own country.

10. Maledives

This point of my travel wish list hasn’t changed in years. It’s probably been on the list before I even had the list. It’s my ultimate dream destination. I want to go there, do absolutely nothing and feel like I have all the time in the world.

+ bonus

There are also two places I visited not so long ago, but would go back to in a heartbeat: New Zealand and Sri Lanka. I didn’t get enough of them during our trips and I know if someone told me “you’re going there”, I would be all packed and ready in 2 hours.

    Ehhhh, Aga… taka lista marzeń jak Twoja nie jest nawet w sferze moich marzeń. Chyba, że punkt Australia, o ile znajdziecie kawałek miejsca na podłodze 😉 Sorry, że po polsku, nie mam śmiałości po angielsku 😉

    I blog about a different Wanderlust every week so I feel you on this one. Yes to all your 10, except maybe the US, though NYC is starting to call me, and I don’t know much about Poland.

    Cool list! I feel the same way about Mauritius that you do about Maldives… It is just my dream destination 🙂 We are heading to Vietnam on this trip – it is very high on my list too – I can’t wait!

    Dubai + Maldives is a good combination. About 4h flight between them. 12 days in NYC is not enough 🙂
