10 Places I’d like to see before I die…

places to see before you die

1) CROATIA

I saw Croatia on the programme Escape to the Continent, and thought it looked absolutely beautiful! It’s situated in the East of Europe, and contains such gorgeous landscapes of beaches, lakes, greenery, and quaint little towns and villages. Furthermore, the city of Dubrovnik and its coastlines are used as one of the locations for Game of Thrones, and seeing as it’s one of my favourite shows, Croatia is definitely a must on my list of places. The music festival, Croatia Rocks, also adds to the appeal!

2) ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA

Ever since watching the OC, I’ve really wanted to travel to this part of California, to pay homage to Newport Beach, and also to see Laguna Beach, another show I’m a fan of. I’d love to watch a sunset out there, give surfing a try, or simply to drive down the Pacific Coast highway.

3) NEW YORK CITY

Who doesn’t want to visit the Big Apple? I’d love to visit at Christmas time, so I could iceskate outdoors in Central Park, and shop in Bloomingdales or Macy’s on Christmas Eve. I’d also really like to visit a lot of the locations of the programme Gossip Girl, which is another of my favourite shows, maybe see a Broadway show and visit the top of the iconic empire state building.nyc

4) MACHU PICHU, PERU

I’ve wanted to walk the Inca trail to Machu Pichu ever since I was younger, as the scenery is stunning and I think it would be fascinating to see the Inca ruins. Think I’d have to prepare myself for a LOT of walking when I do this one!

5) HAWAII

I would love, love, love to take a trip to Hawaii, and to soak up the culture, sun and amazing beaches. I recently saw Hawaii on the film Forgetting Sara Marshall, and it made me want to visit there even more! I’m not sure which island I’d like to go to, though I don’t think I’d complain whichever one I end up on. I’d love to try surfing here, and also visit a volcano.

6) SYDNEY

I think a trip up on the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge would be breathtaking, even though I’m terrified of heights! It’d be so cool to be able to see views of the Sydney Opera House and the Blue Mountains. Apparently it’s best to go to the top just before twilight.

7) NEW ZEALAND

All I have to say, is MIDDLE EARTH.

8) SANTORINI, GREECE

Maybe a little cliched, but the sunset in Santorini is so romantically pretty.

9) ROME

After my trip to Italy, I completely fell in love with it, and have now decided that a romantic trip to the city of Rome is in order to see the sights of the Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain.

10) CANADA
I’d love to visit places such as the Banff National Park to stargaze, or Peyto Lake, where the waters are some of the bluest that you can see.

  1. Great choices! America is fabulous, though I’ve only visited one state, Florida, 9 times! So naturally I’m drawn to wanting to explore other parts of the country, such as California and New York, but it’s hard to give up a place that you love to try something new. I like that a few of these were inspired by films/TV shows, I’m very much the same way.

    1. Wow 9 times! That’s a lot, I’d love to visit Florida, or pretty much anywhere in the US to be honest! That’s true, when you know you love somewhere it makes sense to visit time and time again!
