{ My Travel Bucketlist + Travel Plans For The Year }

Is there a way to type “ha ha ha” without sounding completely juvenile? No?

Well, then have a gif.

Why am I laughing at you? Because the irony. The poignant, painful irony. Oh, how it burns.

What am I talking about? Good question. I’m talking about work. Yes, the same strangely comforting work that was slowly dragging me down into monotony and eventual death. (I actually very much enjoy my job and my boss is great; I know, it’s hard to tell. My general disposition is just sarcastic, it really doesn’t mean all that much).

Well, the irony is that I work for a shipping company so I end up spending a lot of time looking at travelling and cool places overseas. (Totally for content marketing purposes, I promise.)

The job that slowly sucks my will to do anything other than meaninglessly exist is also the one where I sit there and stare at all the places I want to visit in the world.

If it wasn’t clear yet – boom, irony.

However, have no fear.

I’m combating what I like to refer to as “the toad syndrome” with my five year plans and my life dreams and even an 18th year bucket list. What else? A travel bucket list. A nice enticing list of things I need to do before I inevitably kick the bucket and-

Holy shit, I just got why they’re called bucket lists.

And that’s our sign to get on with it.

To kick off my month of travel (because March is my first travel themed month as I’m travelling to Mauritius, yay) I decided to bring you my travel bucketlist! Woo!

There are a lot of things I want to do. I want to volunteer abroad in Madagascar really, really badly. Oh – and, in case you hadn’t noticed, I really, really have a big thing for bridges.

To be honest, I just love nature. Forests, jungles,  nature reserves, safaris . . . I love being immersed in nature. So my bucket list is full of these lush places.

Now . . . onto where I’m actually going this year!

I know I’ve briefly touched on the fact that I’m going to Mauritius in this post, but I realised that I haven’t actually shared my travel plans for the year. So I thought that I’d just tack them on to the end of this post.

Let’s do this in chronological order!

  1. Mauritius – end of March
  2. Amsterdam – May
  3. Lisbon – Beginning of June
  4. Italy – Middle of June
  5. Spain – End of June
  6. Italy – End of July
  7. Cyprus – August
  8. Brazil – September

 I’d really hoped to go on a volunteer holiday in Madagascar (I really don’t think you guys get how much I want to do this. It’s an actual craving.) this year, but with full-time work skipping off to the jungle for a few weeks just wasn’t feasible. Maybe when I go to uni?

Okay, well, this was just an entry post to my travel themed month!

If you do follow me on Twitter, I’m sure (amidst all the random song tweeting…) you’ve heard me getting all excited about posting for this month. Essentially, what I’m doing is padding out the currently non-existent travel category of my blog because, now that I’m 18, I can travel – and I want you guys along with me!

I hope you’re as excited about this month as I am! What things are on your travel bucket list? Do you think you’d want to do anything from mine?

All the love,

This got me so excited!! I can’t wait to see your travels! But, I am also very jealous because although I am 18, I am not allowed to travel 🙁

Don’t worry – I’m going to post about all of them! And nope my parents are all but kicking me out the door haha xD at least you have more time to save up for when you are allowed to travel!

Love this list – loads of amazing ideas but, I just have to say quickly, campervan road trips are the best…!!

I really want to go on one! They look like so much fun x

The best – we drove 2,000 miles around California for our honeymoon, most amazing adventure!!

I LOVE this post, thinkinf of doing one myself as theirs many countries i want to visit this year. Moses Bridge, Netherlands look beautiful and a place i would love to visit.

Thank you so much! You definitely should write a bucketlist; it’s a great way to get some plans started! And I agree – there are some really stunning bridges in the world x

All stunning places! I’d love to visit every part of the world and I hope to be able to do so one day in my life ? It’s great that your getting to do so much travel this year! Good for you I can’t wait to see photos when you return, travel safe and have fun of course!

I know – I really hope that I manage to visit them all! And thank you so much; I’m excited too! I can’t wait to share some travel stories on the blog!x

I understand you SO. MUCH. It’s actually painful hahaha
by the way… swimming with pigs? oh god, i NEED to do that!
I’ll try to do my own list as well, you’ve inspired me!


And I KNOW – swimming with pigs looks absolutely AMAZING! when you write your list, let me know so that I can check it out! x

I’m excited for you! you have an amazing travel bucket list and i cant wait to see them all unfold here in your blog. I myself have a lot of places I want to go to but didn’t really write it down yet. will do now 🙂

This is such a phenomenal list – the swimming pigs is on the top for me too!! I can’t believe I just discovered your blog, it’s amazing 🙂 xxx

Oh yeay! Batu Caves!

Omg how weird is that door to hell? Definitely going to add a few of these to my own bucket list! Pig island looks so adorable ? you’re going to have such a good time travelling! X

These are all incredible! I haven’t even heard of most of these places. Including the Devils bath. I live in New Zealand and I’ve never seen or heard of that before ?
I’m making a mental note to look it up and head there cause it looks insane ?

Great post xxx

That’s an awesome bucket list but the places you are actually going aren’t too shabby either. I’m sure you’ll get to Madegascar!

It is my life mission to make it there! The volunteer trip looks so good! Thanks for reading!

The pigs are so cute and I also want to visit the The Devil’s Bath. I really love your travel bucketlist! I also want to travel in different places.

thank you! and the pigs are so adorable, right! I’m sure one day you’ll get to travel 🙂
