Maybe I’m hoping for too much from 2015.
It’s the year I’ll graduate, there’ll be two weddings, I’ll have to find a job, I might even relocate. Hopefully though, I’ll manage to find the pennies for some travelling. Here’s a few places on my bucket list for 2015… Better start saving.
From May this year, WestJet will offer direct flights between Glasgow and Canada’s most eastern outpost. What better excuse to get a taste of the bigger and (supposedly better) Scotland?! I’ve been desperate to visit Canada for a while now, and WestJet’s new route seems like the ideal opportunity. Along with welcoming locals and similar scenery, Nova Scotia is adjacent to Prince Edward Island, the pilgrimage site for all us Anne of Green Gables aficionados.
There’s so much to explore in Europe, and I can’t believe I’ve never been further east than Reims. Prague and its stunning setting, reminiscent of a fairytale world, is top of my list (although I wouldn’t say no to Poland either). The images of the city in winter are amazing, so I might leave this trip to later in the year. Why not make the most of the snow and Christmas markets? (I can dream, right!)
Although I went to Rome last summer, I’d go back in a heartbeat. The baking tarmac, the omnipresent history, the majesty of the Vatican… and the Sistine Chapel, the artistic wonder I never got to see! We missed the last entry by about fifteen minutes, so it’s definitely on my list of must-see sites. And I may swing by a gelataria or two while I’m there.
I know this is a very general broad addition to the bucket list… I don’t mind where I go in the US — going city hopping isn’t high on the agenda — but I’d love to visit some national parks or natural phenomena. Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Bonneville salt flats, La Push beach… as long as it’s organic and there’s not a skyscraper in sight, I’ll be satisfied.
Been to any of the places on this list? Where would you recommend?
