One thing I’ve always wanted to do my whole life is travel. I wanted to travel as a child and I knew back then when I had my own family I’d want to travel with them too. I’ve been lucky enough to visit so many beautiful places but there are still many I want to see. I have a huge list of places I want to visit but I’ve never actually written them down, so I thought today was the day! Here’s a list of some destinations I want to visit with my family.
Salt Lake City, Utah, United States
There’s something I love about Salt Lake City. It has some beautiful mountains for a backdrop and it’s right next to the Great Salt Lake, and I can’t forget to mention the beautiful Utah vacation rentals that I’ve been lusting over too. My dream is to wake up in one of those stunning villas in Utah, with Nathan and Oliver, with a view of the city AND the mountains. I would love to see the Great Salt Lake in person too – It’s approximately 1,700 square miles wide which is HUGE! It seems to be one of those destinations that has everything. I’m hoping in the future to visit a few places in the United States on one holiday, but when we do, I’m making sure Utah is one of our stops.
Reykjavik is just beautiful. I love that you have the chance to see the northern lights but also I’m dying to visit Blue Lagoon which is a natural geothermal spa near Reykjavik. I adore all Scandinavian countries – their architecture is so colourful and stunning. I’m not sure what age would be suitable to take Oliver (and any future children we have) as I know it can get pretty darn cold! If you’ve visited Reykjavik with children please send me any recommendations or tips. We’d love to go but wouldn’t know the most suitable time to go with kids around!
This is somewhere I’m hoping we’ll be able to go within a few years. Rome has so much going on in the city and there are plenty of things to do – There’s the Colosseum, Trevi fountain, Pantheon… The list is huge! I’m dying to try some Italian food actually in Italy, as I’m sure it’s not quite like what we can get here in the UK. Plus, it would be nice to go somewhere hot for a few days! Seeing as Italy is fairly close to us, compared to other destinations I’m mentioning, this one will be a lot easier to pull off whilst having a toddler with us.
North Island, New Zealand
Guys. I just need to go to Hobbiton. The island itself is just gorgeous but I need to visit Hobbiton; where they filmed parts of Lord Of The Rings. This is a long distant dream which I’m going to make sure I do one day. It’ll most likely be when Oliver is a lot older and we can save up, as I can imagine it’ll be expensive… But if I suddenly win the lottery it’ll be one of the first trips I book! Our ideal holiday of New Zealand would be touring across the 2 islands in a camper van, cruising along the coast and going wherever the hell we want. I wouldn’t want to go for less than 3 weeks, that’s for sure.
Cape Town, South Africa
After doing some research I’ve found that there is so much to do in Cape Town that are suitable for families. There’s a lot more than I originally thought to be honest! There’s sand boarding, the Cape Town science centre, Kirstenbosch gardens, two oceans aquarium etc. On top of this, from the photos I’ve seen, Cape Town looks beautiful.
Disneyland Paris, France
A lot of people don’t believe me when I say I’ve never be to Disneyland Paris. It’s somewhere I’ve wanted to go since I was little and I’ve still not had the chance. Nathan has been a few times so he’s promised he’ll take me one day. After seeing photos from my brother-in-law’s trip to Disneyland I fell in love with the Toy Story area – I bloody love Toy Story! We were lucky enough to go to Disney World in Florida back in 2016, but I feel I need to visit Disneyland just because it’s on the UK’s doorstep, and we can experience the magic without the 9 hour flight again!
Canada has been at the top of our travel bucket list for years. We had originally planned to go to Toronto this summer, but it was SO much more expensive than we thought it would be. We’ve now decided we’re going to save up for a few years and then go for it. I think Canada looks beautiful and I’m desperate to see Niagra Falls. I’d also love to see the CN tower in person because I love Toronto’s city skyline, so to really see it would be amazing. Fingers crossed this one we can save up for!
This list could go on for ages as there are so many places I want us to travel to. We most definitely would have traveled most of the world by now if money wasn’t an issue, but alas, it is. I’m forever wishing we could win the lottery one day – The lottery that I don’t actually enter… What destinations have you got on your travel bucket list? I’d love to here them!
