One Hundred Things Travel Edition


I like lists. I do. They’re everywhere. So, naturally, I wanted a list of things I want to do travel-wise. I thought of a bucket list, but it seems like a race to get stuff in before I kick the bucket. For some reason, a list of 100 things I want to see or do seems less stressful. So here it is…One hundred things travel edition.

World Travel

    1. Bonn, Germany – I discovered this charming town through a blog post of another travel writer, Sophia Without Borders, and fell in love. I so want to see Beethoven’s birthplace and the lovely Poppelsdorf Palace.
    2. Freiburg, Germany and the Black Forest – A fairytale town and a sinister forest…
    3. Montenerodomo, Italy – I have ancestors from there, so…
    4. Tuscany, Italy – It seems like it would be a magical place.
    5. Almafi Coast, Italy – Terror and beauty. That road seems beyond horrifically scary, but, oh the towns.
    6. Burano, Italy – Because I love brightly colored houses and want to see those blinding colors in person.
    7. Ireland – More ancestors. Plus, green.
    8. Clare Island, Ireland – A gorgeous island off the coast.
    9. Scotland – Shhh. Some of the ancestors in Ireland are Scots Irish.
    10. Wales – I’ve wanted to visit Wales since I was about 10 and met a few Welsh people who talked about how beautiful it is.
    11. Bath – Jane Austen and all those other classic authors have me dreaming of seeing Bath in person.
    12. Hampshire – Obviously, I also want to check out where Austen spent her last years.
    13. Derbyshire – Chatsworth House, used as Pemberley in one of the movies and an estate named in one of Austen’s novels, can be found here.
    14. Newbury – Highclere Castle, where Jeeves and Wooster and Downton Abbey were filmed is here.
    15. Bibury, England – Obviously, I would want to see a place that people claim is the most beautiful village in the UK.
    16. Amsterdam – Tulips and windmills, but also architecture and good food.
    17. More of Azores – I loved Sao Miguel, but now the other islands are calling my name.
    18. Lisbon, Portugal
    19. Sintra, Portugal
    20. Algarve, Portugal – Three Portuguese destinations that are completely unique and amazing in their own way? Yes, please.
    21. Colmar, France – Is it terribly weird that I don’t have a burning urge to see Paris? And I just realized London isn’t on my list, either. I’m sure I’ll go through them both to get to other places, but I am drawn to little, beautiful places like Colmar and really hope to see it in person someday.
    22. Niagra Falls, Canada – I’ve been there before, but I was 5. I want to see the falls again, from the Canadian side, just as I did then. I wonder if they will still seem enormous.
    23. Peru
    24. Bermuda
    25. Iceland – to see the Northern lights. Doing this December 2016
    26. Zurich region, Switzerland – Food, museums and fun things for the kids to do.
    27. Fribourg Region, Switzerland – Chocolate, Gruyères and beautiful scenery.
