My Top 10 Travel Wishlist for 2018


I’m in the midst of trying to figure out where I want to take a trip this year. And dang, it’s been really hard narrowing it down. In fact, for this post, I’m trying to get my list down to ten. But for my trip, I need to come up with 1-3 places as a shortlist to make it a reality. Wish me luck!

In the meantime, I reviewed an old post from last year of my top 20 destinations (btw, it’s so fun to look back and see how things change!), started jotting down all the places that have piqued my interest, and asked friends, family, and followers for suggestions.

So, instead of condensing, my list has been ever-growing! And now’s the time to chisel it down a bit.

I have the funds to take a big trip this year… So where should I go!?

That’s the million-dollar question. But after some deliberation (and trying to be as realistic as possible), I was able to get my list down to “10” countries that I’d love to explore. And by “10” I mean I’ve randomly included a few add-ons in there. 🙂

This is where I’ve landed. So what do you think!?

Here’s my top 10 travel wishlist (in no particular order):

  • France
  • Italy
  • England (a road trip throughout England and Scotland)
  • Indonesia (Bali specifically)
  • New Zealand
  • Germany
  • Portugal (and Spain)
  • Ireland
  • Croatia
  • Japan

I’ve also been thinking really hard about Southeast Asia: Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. I keep hearing amazing things about these places!

I’ve set up flight alerts for most of these places using my favorite site Airfarewatchdog.

I still need to condense this list quite a bit, as I’d like to spend quality time in whatever country I decide to visit. But it’s a start! Ideally, I’d like to get my list down to 1 or 2 counties. Yikes! Of course, I’ll keep you posted when I come to a final decision.

Also, if you haven’t signed up for my email newsletter, do so now! You’ll get a guide on how to search for scenic spots while on your travels. [Sign-up is in the sidebar!]

Stay tuned as I figure out my travel plans for this year!
