Travel destinations for 2016/2017

Travelling has suddenly become a thing I want to do. A few years ago, I was just Jennie who liked to stay in one country, with little experience of the world and hadn't flown in ten years and now suddenly I just want to explore the entire world right now. In reality, it would take me a lot longer than a few years to travel the whole world so I've made a realistic list of places I want to (and will be) visiting within the next two years.

I have spent possibly the last year just lusting over this place and dreaming about it. I thought it would be mega money to go here but after lots of hours perusing through, Expedia and I realised that if I try a bit harder to save it is actually do-able. So in October this year me and Ellis are off to the beautiful island. I can't wait to wake up to the most stunning views, watch one of the world's best sunsets, ride quad bikes around the entire island and hike from Thira to Oia and back!

Amsterdam has been a place I've wanted to visit for a couple of years now. I love how much culture is there - plus I'm a sucker for a dutch pancake and Nutella. I'm secretly treating Ellis to a few days here next January (he doesn't know so let's hope he doesn't read this blog post)!

Although I hate the cold, visiting Iceland is somewhere I hope to go next year because it seems magical! I want to see the Northern Lights so badly and the idea of sitting in an outdoor warm Blue Lagoon in the freezing cold air seems strangely appealing!

After watching Eat, Pray, Love I have fallen in love with Bali and would love to visit the island for myself. I love peace, mindfulness and zen so I think I would love it here. It seems so different to anywhere else I've been and I want to try new things and go to new places so this will hopefully happen in 2017.

This will take mega saving but me and Ellis have our hopes on going to San Francisco next year, if not then the year after! His family live over there and I just really want to visit America so I really hope this happens. Ellis has been before when he was little so I'm excited to explore the city with him! 

Where do you want to adventure to? 

lots of love

  1. Great destinations. :) I would love to visit all of them. ;) He he :)
    For my adventures, this year I would be very happy to travel to the sunny Spain for a long long walk -> Camino de compostrella.

  2. Travel is something I've never really thought about myself until I hit my twenties! If you go on Google and search MSE competitions there's always holiday competition posts for beautiful places - might be worth a look! Bali and Amsterdam are on my own travel bucket lists!
