So, fun fact, I have never left the United States, but not for lack of trying my mother just has never been interested and I’m just reaching a financial situation that I can afford to try to go on a trip abroad myself, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on a list of my top priority destinations.
I have dreamed of visiting Japan, and Tokyo specifically since I was a little kid. The lights, the fashion, the technology, and the culture has always been so fascinating and beautiful to me and I’ve always wanted to immerse myself in it.
So, every late millennial/early Generation Z member remembers the Lizzie McGuire Movie and their class trip to Rome. That inspired me at a super young age to want to go there too, even if I can’t impersonate a pop star.
Who doesn’t want to go to Greece, like seriously, it’s gorgeous and has such a rich history and culture that I would love to experience first hand.
So another Disney Channel related travel dream, this one is inspired by Cheetah Girls 2. I simply just want to feel like I’m in the Strut scene, is it childish? Maybe, but who cares.
This last one is a product of FOMO produced by Youtube, the villas, the Monkey Forest, the beauty, all of it just makes me want to visit, relax, and explore this beautiful city/country.
So where do you want to travel? Have you been to any of these destinations? Let me know in the comments!

Well good thing we’re going to Ubud in two years. 🥰
These are all top destinations in my travel dream diary! I have been to Barcelona and it is amazing, you will love the culture, the people are friendly and there architecture is beautiful!
I’ve been to a lot of places around the world but Ubud is one I’ve never considered. Gotta look into it! Going back to Italy with my son in May 2020 and to China in August 2002 to avoid the RNC here in Charlotte. You have some great places to visit!!
China sounds like an amazing trip!
What a great travel bucket list. Rome is on mine too.
I’m dying to go to Greece and Tokyo! My goal is to get out and explore more even if I have to take a solo trip. The world is a beautiful place and it’s so much to see
These are really nice places. Mine would be Dubai (mainly because of the hype) and Malta.
I’m buying into the Dubai hype too honestly!
The only one of these that I’ve been to is Rome. I’d love to visit the Scandinavian countries, Tahiti (or somewhere similar in the Pacific), Scotland, and finish visiting all 50 states ( 9 to go).
This is a great list. I never heard of Ubud, but it seems really interesting! I love to travel too so I’m always interesting in learning about new places. Thanks for sharing!
A beautiful bucket list indeed. Very exciting that you’re approaching the time to start crossing these off. Congrats on that, and I look forward to hearing about your amazing journeys.
Athens is definitely on my bucket list too!
I’ve never been out of the United States either (I like to joke with my mom and say she left all the fun stuff for herself), but always dreamed of getting a one way flight and just going for it.
I LOVE your confession about Barcelona! The Cheetah girls are definitely an inspiration lol.
I hope that you do get to have these experiences and I can’t wait to read all about it.
I haven’t been out the country yet either so I’m thinking about creating a list like this to manifest it! i would Love to go to Paris, Greece, Bali, Cabo, Cuba, and to Africa
Oh yes.. great destinations. I didn’t travel out of the country until I became an adult. I must say that experience was the most enlightening ever. Travel, live and enjoy your future.
Your travel list is interesting. I never heard of Ubud, looks unique. So far I had Tokyo in my travel bucket list. Can add few more to it. Thanks for sharing.
Santorini, Greece is up on my travel list. I’m trying to make it happen for my birthday next year, so let’s cross our fingers!! I definitely have that travel bug too haha
okay, so lets go to all of these places please!! Tokyo and Athens are definitely in my top five! They look so beautiful!
I’ve been to Rome, Barcelona, & Greece! I would love to go to Australia! My fiancé is actually there right now, but I unfortunately couldn’t make the trip, ugh!

Omg Australia is a top pick for me too
Omg! All these destinations are gorgeous! I can’t even pick one that I would rather visit. Each destination appeals to what type of vacation I would love to be on. I really want to go to Hawaii.
Love it, such an awesome bucket list. I can confirm that Rome and Barcelona are amazing places to go!
I love this list post! I only has two of these locations in mind when considering travel destinations, this has expanded my list! Thanks!
