My Travel Goals

2016, travel


I’ve been obsessed with travelling ever since I went to Tanzania with Camps International in 2013 and I’ve always been told your 20s are the best years of your life – having just turned 20 and found myself planning my next summer, so I thought I’d talk about a few of the places that I’d really like to visit!

Europe – perhaps a bit broad, but it’s easier to go backpacking around Europe and do a few countries in a couple of weeks. I love the idea of having a really packed couple of weeks seeing all the architecture and the history and sights! I’m particularly interested in going to Greece and Italy, but I’ve only ever been to Belgium before so there are so many new countries for me to explore.

China – one of my best friends and also my uncle live in Shanghai and China is such a diverse country that I would love to learn more about the culture of. Alongside visiting family and friends, I would love to do a more guided trip to learn as much as I can about the country because I’m genuinely so intrigued to learn more about it!

Australia and New Zealand – ever since I had friends move out to New Zealand in 2008, since then I’ve watched a bunch of travel vloggers who’ve travelled to Australia and New Zealand and they just look like such beautiful countries that I’d really like to explore and adventure in. Think of the travel vlogs I could make there!

Africa – like Europe, probably too broad, but I’d love to go back to Tanzania and maybe go to other places around the continent to do more charity and project type work, but I’d also love to see more of the continent, particularly Egypt (because I love the history, I’d love to see the pyramids and learn more about the Gods, I was obsessed with them as a kid!) and South Africa.

Ecuador – I’d love to go back to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands with better camera equipment because whilst I’m so proud of the video I made while I was in Ecuador, I just keep thinking about how much more I know about making video content and the equipment I could take and how I could really show how beautiful that country is!

USA – everyone talks about road tripping around the US, I know, but I’d love to see the country by spending a few days in each place we go to. In an ideal world, I’d spend about three weeks in Disneyland Florida, maybe visit PlaylistLive and VidCon as well and visit my friend Emma in Texas (and remember to take a selfie this time).

Canada, Hawaii and Alaska are also on my list but I haven’t actually done too much research into it yet! I need to make a proper plan, I feel like I’ll make a mood board or something when I have more access to a printer.

All in all, I’d like to go basically everywhere but that doesn’t make for a very interesting blog post!

I know this will cost a lot of money and obviously I’m not planning to do this all in one go but I would love to go and see the world before I settle and start a new chapter, later in my 20s. Maybe I’m planning a little too meticulously, but we’ll just see!

Thank you for reading,
