10 Places I’d Like To Visit


I like traveling. I just don’t have enough time or money most of the time. But I’ve got a list of places that I’ve never been that I’d like to go. So here we go!

1. Australia. Maybe it’s just because I love a man with an accent. Maybe it’s because it just seems incredible. I want to go…bad. It’s probably number 1 on my bucket list.

2. New Zealand. I can’t go to Australia and not go to New Zealand. My grandfather went to school with a gentleman from down there who has come to visit several times over my lifetime. I’d love to see them again and see the country.

3. Ireland. Castles. Local pubs. I think it would be a fun trip. And I can usually find a week tour for less than $1,000 through this travel email list I’m on. I ALWAYS want to click “purchase.”

4. The Grand Canyon. I’d like to go and hike up and down. 8 miles each way. I think it would be beautiful. I think it would be one of the hardest things I will ever do. Totally want to do this one. I’ve flown over it several times. Can’t wait to see it up close.

5. New England in the fall. All up and down the coast. They say it’s incredible. I’d like to see it for myself and spend a couple weeks just wandering. And yes, Nathan, that includes a trip to New York City to come and visit with you!!

6. China. Mainly because walking The Great Wall is on my list. I’m sure I’d fall in love with the whole country, but I’d love to walk on a piece of history that you can see from outer space.

7. San Diego. I’ve only heard wonderful things about San Diego. The weather’s perfect. It’s a great-looking city. It’s on the ocean. These are all good things.

8. Boulder, Colorado. I’ve been to Denver, and I loved it. Boulder seems like an eclectic sort of town that I would really enjoy. It looks picturesque from what I’ve seen. I think I’d really enjoy it.

9. Portland, Oregon. It just seems like a town I’d like. Coffee shops, indie music and just and artsy vibe all around. Yeah. I think I’d love it.

10. Italy. All over. Tuscany, Rome, Venice. The language is beautiful. The scenery is fabulous. I’m sure the wine is to die for. Have you seen Under The Tuscan Sun? Yeah. Maybe I’ll buy a villa and just move there.

So what about you? Where do you want to visit? Where have you been?

About the author

  • Can I go with you on these trips! When I was about 10 we went to Boulder, the 4 Corners, Denver, Cliff Dwellings and Grand Canyon. Hiked about a fourth of the way down. It was amazing. I’d love to do that all again.

    • When I go, I’ll let you know! I love to travel with friends!

    ok…so you need to sign me up to go to most of these places with you ๐Ÿ™‚

    on a different note, i thought for sure the feely house would be on your list ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • You’re on the list! Also, these are places I’ve never been. Not a list of my favorites ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • LOVED LOVED hiking the Grand Canyon. Would do it all over again in a heartbeat :).

  • Becky

    Well, I thought I wanted to go to the Dominican but I guess not.

    • Julie Shreve

      Why no Dominican? My brother loved it!!

  • Sherrigreifzu

    Sam says he doesn’t see Afghanistan or Iraq on there…..I said you weren’t crazy:)

    Oz, NZ and San Diego are all fabulous. Absolutely love, love, love them all. If I were a rich girl I would go to those places over and over and over again. Everywhere else on your list looks great too. I would, however, make the change to hiking down the Grand Canyon and then rafting out. The hike up would be crazy-as. And the people around here tell me I’m more than a little crazy because I really, really want to go to India.
    Buy me a ticket, I’ll go absolutely anywhere.

    • You’re my most traveled friend. I need to take advice from you for sure!!!!!

  • Funny, I just wrote about how awesome it is to live on San Diego. I’m sure you’d love it!

    • I’m sure I will! I’m hoping for a west-coast trip sometime next year!!

  • Nice Save.

  • I’m with you on #5 and can confirm #9!

    • So does this mean I have a tour guide when I get to Portland?
