The truth about me is that I’m never not dreaming of travel or planning my next trip. So, for a quick Monday post, I wanted to share some of the top places on my (extensive) travel bucket list. This barely scratches the surface, but it’s a good start!
Luckily, this is one I’ll cross of my list later this year but I just can’t believe I still haven’t been! I’m looking forward to going to the cute shops and bakeries, eating really good food, and enjoying the Lowcountry vibes.

They’re pretty close in proximity and features, so perhaps I’ll do both! These seem like the perfect places to visit for an outdoorsy time in the summer with lots of lake swimming and exploring.
I’ve been interested in Montreal for awhile, but especially since I’ve gotten into Louise Penny’s series which is set in Quebec, my interest has been piqued even further. I’ve heard it’s a lot like going to Europe but without the long flight and I’d love to go during Christmastime to enjoy all of the magical vibes in the city.
I feel confident that when I visit Provence, I’m going to have a tremendously hard time leaving. It looks like the absolute dreamiest place on Earth where everything is exactly my taste from the food to the environment and the decor.
I want to do this trip in two parts. One part would be staying in a luxury, grand hotel with all the trappings and doing all of the chic things one can do in a Swiss city, then the second part would be mountaineering, canyoning, and hiking in the Alps.
I’ve been wanting to visit Edinburgh specifically for as long as I can remember now because it just looks so cozy! At this point, I’d also love to take a Range Rover up to the Highlands and live out my (not tragic) Outlander dreams.
I have a full-on plan already for this trip, as a big part of its purpose is to visit my foster elephant at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. I plan on flying into Nairobi and staying at Giraffe Manor which is the most incredible hotel right near the elephant sanctuary.
Japan is in my top three bucket list locations for so many reasons. The landscape, the food, and the culture are three things I’ve adored from afar for so long, due in part to my love for Miyazaki movies. I want to do a really extensive Japan trip where I’m able to visit Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Okinawa, Hokkaido, and stay in a ryokan in the countryside.
I dream about a trip to Bali quite often these days, even though I should be trying to escape the humidity at home, not seeking it elsewhere 😂 But it’s just such a stunning, spiritual place where I’d love to rent a villa, eat lots of fruit, swim all day and get lots of massages.
