Every year I make a destinations bucket list. Not that I intend to tick those destinations off in that same year but more as a source of inspiration where I could travel to that year. Last year I also shared this list and actually traveled to one of the destinations on that list. If you’re interested in reading that one click HERE

I always feel like traveling. Looking at inspiration pictures of nice places is also something I do almost every day. The famous Instagram account Beautiful Destinations is also my place for day dreaming. I get adrenaline from traveling. I totally got this from my dad as he was a real adventurer when he was a young guy. He dared to go anywhere and did lots of solo traveling. Although I would be in for traveling every day of the year, I feel most in a travel mood when spring arrives.

This year, I haven’t traveled anywhere yet besides Paris in February so I really feel that I want to visit some place new. I know I’ll be going to Spain in the upcoming months but that is more for family matters. Yet I still always try to make most out of a trip regardless of the purpose. Apart from Spain, I have nothing planned so I made my yearly travel bucket list in order to feel inspired. It might inspire you too at the same time.

Hallstatt
Last year I added Vienna to my list and I still would love to visit Austria. Now I have found another gorgeous place in Austria: Hallstatt. I am obsessed with looking at pictures of this town. Seems like a  place to enjoy nature. This is something I started appreciating more while growing up. I don’t really have a preference as to which season I would love to go but I think that Hallstatt covered in snow would be perfect.

Guatemala
Next time that I’ll visit Mexico I will for sure combine it with a stop in Guatemala. I have seen many pictures of different cities in Guatemala and it gives me such similar vibes as Mexico. Therefore I am so sure that I will enjoy a stop in this country. The place that interests me most is Antigua. It reminds me of Oaxaca (Mexico).

Edinburgh
Now this is a place I never expected me to be interested in. Edinburgh never even crossed my mind to visit until the beginning of this year. I think it was mainly because I had no idea how it looked or what it was known for. Now I am really curious. Is it a bit similar to Dublin?

Finland
This is the last Scandinavian country that I want to visit (ok apart from Iceland). I have been to Stockholm and last year I also ticked off Copenhagen from my bucket list. I love Scandinavian countries. The people are extremely friendly (and beautiful), the streets are clean and I am obsessed with the relaxed and good vibes there seem to be in each of these countries. I would combine Helsinki with a day trip do Tallinn (Estonia) as it is easy to reach by ferry. The only downside is that Scandinavian countries are quite expensive.

Nicaragua
Someone I vaguely know and have as a friend on Facebook went on a study exchange to Nicaragua. I don’t know where exactly this person was living during that exchange but wow! It looked like paradise. It’s one of my dreams to ever do a jungle tour and Nicaragua seems like the perfect place for it. Also, I simply have a thing for Spanish speaking countries.
