My Top Ten Most Wanted Travel Destinations for 2018

My Current Top 10 Most Wanted Travel Destinations

As I gear up for another year of blogging, I’m taking a look at where I want to travel in 2018. So many places I’ve yet to visit, and some that it’s been a while and I want to go back.

So here is my Top 10 List of places in the World I most want to visit (in alphabetical order)…WARNING! Lots of travel porn coming up:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Australia

Another locale that has been on my want list for years. Such natural beauty. So many cute animals. Lots of friendly people. I’ve heard nothing but good things from fellow travelers about Australia, and I want to see it for myself. Plus, I need to hold a koala and meet a quokka.

Bali

This Indonesian island is known forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs…and I want to see and experience it all. It’s a world so unlike my own here in Florida, and I think it would be lovely to explore.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The Balkan Adriatic Coast

I’m speaking of the Balkan countries on the Adriatic side that include Croatia, Albania, and Montenegro. These areas are less than 30 years removed from the war that broke Yugoslavia into individual countries, but all of the photos and stories I’ve read from other travelers have convinced me it’s a place I need to discover for myself.

British Columbia, Canada

I grew up in B.C. as a child, but I’d love to see the province as an adult. I want to do a Sunshine coast circle tour from Vancouver, up the coast to Desolation Sound, then take the ferry across to Vancouver Island and explore the west coast/Tofino, as well as revisit one of my old homes on Hornby Island. I also would love to go inland and revisit areas like Kamloops and Revelstoke, and maybe even venture to the northern areas of the province.

Czech Republic

My maternal grandmother was born in Prague, and I always promised her we’d visit it together. Unfortunately she passed before we took that trip, so on the 10th anniversary of her passing, I’d like to take this trip in her honor.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Hawaii

I’ve had a fascination with volcanoes since I was a kid. I would love to see one close, and Hawaii has some. Hawaii is also lush and beautiful and I’d love to see the differences between its islands. Plus so many waterfalls!

Iceland

An island that looks like it belongs on another world. So much natural beauty to explore. Iceland has been on my want list for years. I see so many bloggers going there, but I need to see its beautiful vistas for myself.

West Iceland was named one of @cnn's 17 best places to visit in 2017!

New Zealand

I’ve wanted to visit since I was a kid, but seeing New Zealand in the Lord of the Rings movies just hit it home for me. Such amazing natural scenery! I just want to explore the whole country.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Northeast Canadian Provinces

I’ve been through most of the provinces but there are still four I haven’t really explored: Quebec, Newfoundland & Labrador, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia. I did visit Montreal when I was 8, but don’t remember much other than great architecture. As for the other provinces, I’ve read many a blog post and can’t wait to see it for myself.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Spain

The history, the culture, the architecture…there are a wealth of reasons why this country made my top ten. I’d really love to check out the southern region – Grenada, Seville, etc. Food may be a challenge since I don’t eat seafood, but I’m sure I’ll find some national delicacies I can eat.

So those are the locales that are on my Top Ten Travel List. Are they on yours? Have you been there? What places are on your Top Ten? Let me know in comments.
