Travel Bucket List: 11 Destinations I’d Like To Visit

I consider it’s generally fun to established some journey objectives, or at minimum preserve a record of the locations that you’d like to go to sooner fairly than later on. Previously I shared some of the points lodges I’m hoping to finally continue to be at, and in this write-up I wished to share the destinations I’m most hoping to visit.

The vacation locations I most hope to take a look at

Before I share my listing of top journey places I want to stop by, permit me observe a couple matters:

  • I’m not in any way suggesting that the underneath are necessarily the most intriguing areas I’ve in no way been to, but fairly they’re just sites that pique my fascination for a person purpose or yet another, and a visit is on my brain
  • Most of the sites on the list are international locations I have not been to, but in some scenarios they’ll be areas or territories of nations I’ve previously visited in some ability
  • In most scenarios there is also an airline or lodge angle below (immediately after all, which is my business enterprise), so there are interesting airways to try and hotels to stay at
  • I’m seeking to keep a list of sites that’s sensible to go to in the around potential based on my present lifestyle situation, so I’m leaving off some sites that definitely interest me but will consider a lot of exertion, like Antarctica, North Korea, the Falkland Islands, Saint Helena, etc.

With that out of the way, down below are some of the spots that I’d most like to stop by, in no distinct buy.


In latest many years I have visited Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan, and had an extraordinary time. There’s a little something so pleasurable about traveling to a spot where you do not seriously appear in with any distinct anticipations. Logically Kyrgyzstan is following on that listing for me.

There’s even a Hyatt Regency in Bishkek. It’s just as well lousy that Turkish Airways no lengthier operates a fifth flexibility flight from Bishkek to Ulaanbaatar.


Ford and I were being intended to go to Namibia in April 2020, while of course that bought canceled thanks to the pandemic. I’m still hoping to make this vacation sometime, as Namibia has so a lot to present, from wonderful safari encounters to beautiful coastline.

Greenland has been on my travel bucket checklist for way way too extended. There is even an intriguing aviation angle, as Air Greenland has an A330 in its fleet, which it flies involving Greenland and Copenhagen. I was arranging this vacation for the summer months of 2020, but the pandemic ruined people designs. Of class a Greenland trip involves some organizing, and with the uncertainty encompassing the pandemic, I guess I must wait around a little bit longer on this.

I’ve only flown in excess of Greenland until finally now

Faroe Islands

I appreciate nature places, and I’ve listened to fantastic issues about the Faroe Islands. This is pretty available from quite a few factors in Europe, and there is now even a factors resort there (a Hilton Yard Inn), so I’m hoping to go to this summer months.

Arctic Canada

The Canadian Arctic is shockingly obtainable by air, and I envision it has completely lovely landscapes. I’d adore to pay a visit to in summer, and do a bunch of interesting flights. Now if only Canadian North would launch that flight from Canada to Greenland, then I could knock out two destinations with 1 uncomplicated journey.

I realize I’m way behind the curve on this just one, but I have under no circumstances visited Peru (aside from connecting at the airport). I consider it’s time to at last stop by Lima, Machu Picchu, etc.


Of nations around the world in Europe I haven’t been to, Albania possibly interests me most. The nation is surrounded by other nations that I appreciate (Greece, Montenegro, and Italy just throughout the sea), and I have listened to great matters from all those who frequented. I’ve also uncovered Albanians about the planet to continually be pleasant. If any one has guidelines for what’s a “must-see” further than Tirana, I’d like to find out.


A couple of months back Guatemala truly acquired on my radar, merely since it is straightforward to get to, beautiful (from what I’ve viewed), has some fantastic points lodges I could evaluation, and flights there are ordinarily affordable. I’m still hoping to do this as a weekend journey in the around long term, when the latest surge slows down.


Alright, I have gotta be truthful, I really don’t believe I’ve at any time talked to anyone and had them say Bermuda was their beloved location. On the other hand, it is a location that has been on my record for a really long time, I appreciate the “Bermuda Triangle” intrigue, and now there’s even a St. Regis there, which is an brilliant factors choice to have.

There is now a St. Regis in Bermuda

Greece (new islands)

Greece is just one of my beloved nations in the environment, and I’ve been several situations. On the other hand, I’m accomplished visiting the identical islands, but fairly want to go someplace new. The spots that desire me most are Corfu, Milos, and Antiparos. If there are any other islands that definitely should be on my checklist, remember to let me know (and if there’s a factors lodge angle, all the better!).

Oman (outside the house of Muscat)

Though I have been to Muscat, I have not explored the country outside the house of that, and I know I’m lacking out there. Oman has gorgeous shoreline and mountains, and I definitely want to verify that out. We’re even lucky to have two Alila properties in Oman where by we can redeem factors.

Bottom line

It is usually enjoyment to keep a checklist of the locations you most want to check out, and the previously mentioned is a list of the locations that are entrance-of-brain for me when planning journey. I’m probably forgetting rather a number of places I have been seeking to look at out, but I consider this checklist must hold me quite hectic.

If any one has guidelines or ordeals with any of these places, I’d welcome them. And I’d also love to listen to what locations OMAAT audience have on their lists?
