I love to travel. There is just something about going someplace you’ve never been and being a part of a different culture. It’s an amazing experience… hence why I have compiled a list of 10 places I want to visit in my 20’s. This list is not meant to limit my travel but instead to ensure that I will experience life when I am young and willing. That being said:
1. New York City during Christmas
I’ve been to NYC twice during my lifetime, both during the hot summer months which was quite miserable, and both times it was only a day trip. I’d like to take a long weekend and visit New York during the magical weeks of Christmas. I want to ice skate at Rockefeller Center, visit the big Christmas tree, and figure out what it is that makes New Yorkers love their city.
2. An All-Inclusive Resort in the Caribbean
Don’t get me wrong, who doesn’t want to stay somewhere warm & sunny where they can eat and drink as much as they want? Exactly.
So much history and so many gorgeous beaches and cities. Learning Italian is a must and great food. Sign me up!
4. San Francisco
I’ve never been to California and San Fran sounds like a place I would’t want to miss.. trolleys, hills, and the Golden Gate Bridge. A must on my list.
The city of love. The Eiffel Tower, Louvre, and everything else that makes Paris great. I’m going to have to learn French for this one so I don’t give them even more reason to hate American tourists.
Okay.. I live within 6 hours of Chicago and I’ve only been there once for college which was not for enjoyment. I want to go shopping, see the bean, and walk near the lake. A great mini-vacation!
7. Rio De Janeiro
Preferably this trip would take place during the 2016 summer Olympics. I really want to experience their culture, food, and night life.
I’ve never been to the mountains but I’ve heard they are beautiful. Maybe add in some skiing and a cozy fire in a wooden lodge with hot cocoa?
Of course I want to visit the home of my ancestors. Castles, Guinness, and Irish accents.. sounds like the perfect trip!
10. Australia/New Zealand
Aren’t the accents enough to want to visit? Add in cute kangaroos, waterfalls, and beaches. I’m in!
