Where I'd Rather Be

May 16, 2020

Lounging by the pool, sticky scent of sunscreen in the air, sipping piña coladas. It all sounds like a distant dream and one that I've been reminiscing in. Since the Covid-19 lockdown, I've been mentally making mood boards of the places I'd rather be. The sudden change of the world has surely thrown us all off-balance, and during these strange and uncertain times finding new ways of our daily routines has been a tricky one. I'm grateful for my own health as well as loved ones, and I hope that wherever you are in the world, you're coping and that you're keeping healthy. Although travel and vacation may seem like a faraway thought, given the time we have on our hands, it may be a fun way of reflecting where we would like to travel to, when 'normal' finds its way back to us again. I'm finding this time as a way of rest, and it's honestly been ideal for plenty of netflixing, binge eating, and spending time in the garden during the lovely sunshine. Who knows what the world will bring in the next coming months, but I have faith that there will be much more good than what is current. Below is my list of locations that I've not yet been to, but know and hope that I will someday visit...

  • Bali, Indonesia

    Bali has been high up on my list for quite some time. I remember become mildly obsessed with the location when I first watched Eat, Pray, Love. I don't remember much else about the movie except for the scenes of Bali, and I cannot wait to experience jungle living and floating breakfast in the pool.

  • Maldives

    I don't even think the Maldives need an explanation. I feel like everyone and their Grandma has the Maldives on their bucket list, but I don't see why not, it looks absolutely unreal and is probably a once in a lifetime trip. I'll make it there someday!!

  • Santorini, Greece

    I'm not sure if the Greek Island of Santorini is just hype, because I know that there are equally as beautiful and probably less expensive Greek Islands e.g Skopelos or Mykonos ( both places I would also love to visit ). However, Instagram and other bloggers have brainwashed me into believing that Santorini is a must, and so it remains on my list!

  • California, USA

    I want to be cruising down the highway to Malibu, sipping on overpriced smoothies, and eating expensive avocado toast whilst checking out the Beverly Hills Hotel and making my way to Disneyland. I'd probably need to make a few trips to Target which is not as glamorous, but as I've never visited the US, it's something that's gotta be done.

  • Colorado, USA

    This one is a bit of a random one. I haven't always had Colorado on my travel bucket list, and it's been quite recently added. I'm not even sure how I even began looking into Colorado, but the national parks and picturesque scenery with its snowy mountains and stretched lakes look amazing. I would love to pitch up a tent somewhere and have a Colorado sunrise as my morning view.

  • New Orleans, USA

    I've always been extremely intrigued by New Orleans. It's the mix of language, food, architecture, jazz, and the mystery of witchcraft. There's this video that I came across on twitter a while back, and I mean.. isn't it dreamy?

  • Japan

    Japan has been on my travel list for so so long now. I would mainly go for the food alone, but the entirety of Japanese culture is so interesting. As well as visiting Tokyo, I would like to visit Kyoto, the sacred temples and bamboo forests. The Studio Ghibli Museum is also a must.

  • Venice, Italy

    I sadly did already have plans for a weekend trip to Venice in April, and of course this was cancelled with good reason. Eating fresh pizza alongside the canal sounds perfect right now, and of course, cruising in a gondola.

What's on your travel bucket list?
