Top 5 Places I'd Like To Visit

I recently downloaded the 'been' app from the Apple app store (I say recently, it was quite some time ago) as I had seen it and thought is was great for people who like traveling. 

The app calculated that I had travelled to just 4% of the world. And I suddenly felt wanderlust (a strong desire to travel) deciding to share with you all the places I dream of visiting one day. 

Now I always thought I was well travelled, however, this app made me realise how under-travelled I was. 

So I have made a list of the top 5 places I'd like to go and hope that some day I can be sat writing a blog post telling you of all the amazing adventures I had when visiting these places 


I like pretty things, as do most people. And one thing all these places have in common is beauty. 

1. The Netherlands - Amsterdam

I have wanted to visit the Canal loop for a very long time. A recent trip to the cinema to see John Green's 'The Fault In Our Stars' rekindled my love for the city. 
What I would give to be sat on one of the benches with a good book just watching people travel up and down the canal on little rowing boats. 

2. Canada - Banff National Park (Alberta)

Ben Brown (MrBenBrown on YouTube) makes daily vlogs. He has recently been documenting a trip to Canada, and until now, I have never discovered the immense beauty of Canada. I had always thought that the whole country was built up like Vancouver or Toronto. But it isn't! Ben proved that. His videos showed all the mountains and lakes and he has taught me to not make assumptions based on previous knowledge. 

3. Italy - Verona

Admittedly this place does't look as appealing as the others on my list and truth be told, I had a hard time finding a decent photo to share with you. But its more about the history of the town for me - Shakespeare. Need I say more? 
Located between Milan and Venice, Verona has been considered one of the most romantic places in the world. Some say that this is the place where Shakespeare based Romeo and Juliet on. 
Touring the city you can visit the Casa di Guilietta (The house of Juliet) and stand on the balcony confessing your undying love for the strangers below. 

4. France - Paris

Now, I have infact visited Paris before. 
When I was 2 years old, my parents took me to Disneyland and we caught the Metro into central Paris. I was too young to remember this trip and certainly to young to take in the immense beauty of the city. So I'd love to revisit the city and spend my time visiting the Louvre, Notre Dame and La Tour Eiffel (The Eiffel Tower). 

5. Germany - Cologne 

This picture does't exactly show you Cologne, but it does show you what I'd like to visit if and when I get to go. 
I'd love to visit the Hohenzollem Bridge (or Love Lock bridge as it's more commonly known) and run across it and run my hand along all the padlocks just like a little kid walking past railings on the street. 

Well there you go! 

Thanks for reading!

  3. Glad to see Canada made the list ! I am from Ontario (where we have beautiful cottage country), and I have also been to PEI, New Brunswick and Alberta. I strongly recommend Banff, it is gorgeous and has so many outdoor activities. PEI is definitely my favourite place in Canada I have visited though !

    Amsterdam is also on my travel list too !

  4. I just had two friends move to Canada and all their pictures look fabulous. I'm fortunate enough to have been to Paris but I think other than that our lists look very similar.
