bucket list!

I'd like to think I've been to a lot of places in my lifetime and I really am quite lucky - I am fully aware. But there are plenty of places I have yet to see that I just can't wait to get to. Someday. So in no particular order I give you my travel Bucket List....

- Ireland
I want to see this coast line. I want to sit in a pub in the smokey air and listen to the accents all while drinking a legit Guinness. Mostly I just want to see this coastline. And maybe a castle or two.

- Greece
I was positively green with envy when my sister headed to Greece on her honeymoon. This place and I have to meet and we have to meet soon. Particularly Santorini. But I'll take any of it. I read A Year in the World by Frances Mayes and it sort of permanently placed Greece as a must see in my mind. As if I needed further excuses.

- Egypt
I've been dreaming of a cruise to Egypt for a few years now. I'd love to lay my eyes on these just once. Even if just for a few minutes.

- California wine country
I feel like this one is not only a shock to be on this list but also a no-brainer. How is it possible that I have yet to be to Napa Valley and the like is beyond me. But it shall someday be remedied. Wine and I are friends forever.

- Poland
On a much more somber note I would someday like to pay my respects at a concentration camp. I've always been slightly obsessed with all things Holocaust related and so this is something I'll have to do at some point. 

- Germany
Did you know I'm German? Well I am. So I best go and check it all out right? I've been to Germany on a technicality that involved a few moments at an airport but I've never walked around and taken it all in. So. I shall. Maybe all those semesters of college German will come in handy. Ja?

- Thailand
This really doesn't need much of an explanation now does it? It's gorgeous. Look at that water?! I'd love to send up a floating lantern too. Or watch a bunch of them float away. 

Ah yes that was fun. Now I know where my head will be all day. In the clouds....


I'm teaming up with Oh, The Things I Think to bring you Travel Thursday. This is a chance to share past travels every (you got it) Thursday. Domestic. International. Anything goes as long as it's travel related. Packing lists, to-do's, reviews, restaurant recommendations, only photos, etc. Knock yourself out. Feel free to grab a button and add your link below!



  1. Yes to all. Except maybe not Poland, it would probably be too much for my delicate sensibilities. I'm such a crier. For my Holocaust class in college we went to see a survivor speak...ugh...'never to see you again'...kills me. Chris is Greek so that would be fun, but we've both always had Germany at the top of our to see list.

  2. Yes...yes to so many of these!!! I want to go now. Like right now! ha

  3. Looks like a great list to me! Take me to all the places.

  4. I would say that all of these are on my list as well but do I really have to at this point. haha. I never thought of Egypt by cruise though! So I am sure that is what I looking up next. Napa sounds like a challenge to me. Is it as good as what I have here. I must go and see for myself. Say we'll go there even if.... ;-)

  5. Ok, found your blog on the "favorite things" link up, but saw you had a travel portion, and I LOVE to travel! How is it we have the same bucket list?! Seriously, just blogged about wanting to go to Greece! Well anyway, that's not weird to both want to go to Greece, but then I read about Poland and how you're obsessed with all things Holocaust. Me too!!!! Maybe it's ingrained in us in middle school, idk. But great list!


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
