This is an old list that been going around for quite some time now, but I have not gotten around to doing it until now. I have read the list at several bloggers, both fellow travelbloggers as Amanda from Swedish Passport and Jossus Travelpics but also with Matilda Berlin. Have you read this list before?
Oh, this is a good one. My first answer will be Beltane, in Edinburgh of course. And then Hogmanay, also in Edinburgh. Yorvik Viking festival in York. Yggdrasil medieval and pagan festival in Treviso. That's quite a theme huh? But I don't look for just the pagan and medieval thingies, I would love to visit a Christmas market in Vienna and Mardi Gras in NOLA.
This is harder... I traveled a lot through Sweden as a child, so as a grown-up it's not really that compelling, to be honest. Maybe that will change in the future. But one place I have really loved in Sweden is the island Gotland. We use to go there a few years in a row to be apart of the medieval festival. Still a theme huh?
I can say more than one right?
Sofia in Bulgaria. Jaipur in India. Marrakech and Casablanca in Morocco. York in England. Inverness and Isle of Sky in Scotland. Porto, Lissabon, and the Azores in Portugal. Okay, that's 10 cities, let's call it a day.
I kind of cheated on the one above huh, with the cities... so let's keep it to countries that are not listed above. France and Italy, let's get lost on a road trip and end up on small wineries. Even though I know, when the travel ban is lifted, we are heading to France and Scotland as planned.
Santorini, that's an island I have always wanted to see. I could name a few different islands just in Europe that I would like to visit but let's stick with Santorini. People say that its quite expensive, and not all that it's cracked up to be, but still... it's a bucketlist island.
I don't really know, extreme would be like glamping for me. Does that count?
A castle in Scotland for sure!
Wouldnt that be just a dream come true to be able to spend a few nights in a castle in the highlands...
I am gonna stay put in Scotland, let's go see the highlands and the lakes and beaches. Still not camping or hiking but maybe a train ride or a road trip.
Food & drinks
I would say anything local. I love trying out local foods, even though I am not that brave to try the more... brave things. As I said, I am not extreme. But that's one of the many perks of traveling in a group, you can just order one plate of the scary food, to share, so you can all have a taste.
Airports. The feeling you have with you when you arrive at the airport, you're about to check your luggage, go through security, and go somewhere ... isn't that just the best feeling that only an airport can provide?
So, I love airports, I have a lot of dreams and I have to explore Scotland some more. That's about sums it up, don't you say? The thing is, that when I set my mind to go in one direction, that's kind of the only place I can think of at the moment. So this was kind of a hard list to complete without being singleminded.
One thing that this list inspired me to, is to write down an actual bucket list of places that I really want to visit. And not just a bucket list for this year or the next, more of a lifegoal list of things to see and do. Do you have one?
