My Ultimate Travel Bucket List Destinations

Originally posted on Becca's Journey:
Although I could probably put almost every city in every country (not even kidding!) on my travel bucket list, I will stick to the ones that are calling my name the strongest. I would also love to hear your own bucket list destinations! Tokyo, Japan I’d love to visit Tokyo, not just because I have a deep passion for sushi, but because it seems like a crazy, chaotic city, with lots of culture. I can’t wait to stay in one of their ‘capsule’ hostels, eat at the robot restaurant and visit the Harajuku district to see everyone dressed in the craziest fashions.

Prague is also one of Eastern Europe’s inexpensive cities that will be sure not to break the budget.

Travel Bucket List: Victoria Falls, Namibia

Originally posted on The Picky Eater Travels:
Travel Bucket List #2 Next on my travel bucket list is Victoria Falls in Namibia, Africa. What makes this place extra special besides being massive, at 5,604 feet wide, and 354 feet tall, is that there a spot in the falls called Devil’s Pool, where you can actually swim up to the edge looking over the falls. September- December is the best time to go, when the river flow and current are at a low level, and the rock barrier forms an eddy to help keep you from falling off the cliff. It is recommended though that you have someone hold you by the legs when you are taking a picture of your body somewhat over the cliff, as there have been some accidents where people have slipped off the rocks and fell off the cliff, but if you do your research and follow safety. I think this is one of those experiences where you are truly going to regret it if you don’t do it at least…

Hamilton Island

Imagine turquoise water so clear you can see straight to the bottom, coral in neon green and bright purple, and sunsets that pierce the sky with pink rays of light…well that pretty much sums up Hamilton Island. The main reason we booked a trip to Hamilton was to visit the Great Barrier Reef, but it turns out the island was pretty incredible itself. Here’s my guide to planning the perfect trip to Hamilton Island: Booking: When researching this trip for my parents and I, there were quite a few different options for the Great Barrier Reef ranging from where to stay, how to get there, and what to see. We chose to stay on the gorgeous Hamilton Island (which is part of the famous Whitsunday Islands). The easiest way to book everything on the island is through their website. I didn’t know this at the time, but the Hamilton Island company owns and runs everything on the island- making it super easy to book everything. Arrival: The flight was not…

The Perfect Day In Bondi

Today marks my last day in Bondi Beach before I head home for the holidays. I don’t know how, but from the moment I arrived, this beach town felt like home to me. Yes, it is a beautiful beach with attractive Aussie men running around 😉 but there is so much more to it. The people here are so kind and filled with great energy, anything you need is just a few steps away, and it has provided me with more incredible sunsets than I could have ever imagined. If you have a trip to Sydney planned, don’t miss out on a day in this spectacular place. Here’s how to have the perfect day in Bondi: Breakfast in Bondi: The restaurants in Bondi are so good that I will be posting a full article about all the delicious places to get brekkie, but for the sake of this post, I would recommend Speedos Cafe! Not only is their food amazing to photograph, it’s also delicious. (Below are their cronuts and pink…

Antarctica, the number one place you need to go before you die, Part I

Originally posted on Annabel Fenwick Elliott:
Ice vistas galore – booked through the absolutely brilliant Ambercrombie + Kent and operated by Polar Latitudes Antarctica. The only place left on the planet reserved, under an international treaty, for science and exploration only. A utopia of sorts. And, after 28 years of travel, hands down the location of my all-time favourite trip ever. I went expecting to be the only person under 40 – a situation my travel agency had prepared me for – and so I packed plenty of books, a stockpile of patience, and boarded the ship eagerly anticipating some solo time with the icebergs. Utopia Little did I know that by some strange stroke of luck, I would share my 10-day voyage almost surgically attached to a gaggle of four fellow lone travellers, all American males, all in their 20s, for almost every waking hour. The combination of these humans, plus the hugely entertaining expedition crew, plus the penguins, plus the seals, plus all the ill-advised but well-received booze, plus the total detachment from the…

My Top Ten Bucketlist Moments

Originally posted on The Wanderlust Times:
I owe some of my most treasured memories to travel. Theres a reason I’m so obsessed with seeing the world, and I smile every time I look back at these moments in particular. I was most likely thinking something along the lines of “I love my life” at the time. Cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge Thoughts when cycling over the bridge: “Wow, it’s really windy. And cold… isn’t it supposed to be summer? There are more people on this bridge than cars. Stay on your side pedestrians!” Thoughts when having to get up the hill to this view point: “I can’t cycle up that thing. I’m going to try…. Ok I’m walking the bike up.” But it was worth every second. With beautiful views of the city whilst going over the bridge and once up this hill, there were even better views. On that day I grew a strong appreciation for humanity and the beautiful things we create. Here’s a list of some of the best places to view the bridge.…
