Top 5 Places I Want To Travel To ❤

My blog has been very much baby orientated since I started seeing as I was coming towards the end of my pregnancy, then I had my bubba unexpectedly and wanted to write about the whole experience; but now that it's been five weeks and we're settling in finally, I figured I'd get back to the other aspects of my blog that I wanted to feature like lifestyle, beauty, disney, books, and much more! I'm going to try my hardest to even my posts out so I'm not primarily blogging about motherhood as there's a whole lot more to me than just being a new mum, as amazing as it is, and I'd love to use this space to show that :)

One of the posts I've always wanted to write about is my top 5 places in the world I want to travel to and why. Sadly I've only ever travelled to 2 countries before, Romania & Czech Republic - as a child I never had the simple pleasure of going on family holidays every year like some other people so I feel like in a way I've missed out a lot and have much travelling to do to make up for it. But that's okay because now that I have my own child, it's given me motivation to take him on as many holidays as we can so we can explore the world together and make the most out of life! ❤ 

So to start with, Romania is my mother's home country and I've traveled to her birth town, Targu Mures, multiple times to meet relatives and attend my cousin's wedding. Despite many ignorant assumptions that people have about Romania and it's people, it's actually a really beautiful country from what I've seen so far. The scenery is beautiful, from the main town to the salt mines; the weather is gorgeous and the people have always been warm and welcoming every time so I will always recommend visiting there. Especially if you're into history as it has the infamous Dracula's castle, which I have yet to visit, but have been told it's incredible and it's definitely on my to-do list next time I visit with Dane and Cassius.

Czech Republic was my most recent holiday with my boyfriend's family - more specifically Prague - and holy crap, it was amazing. The city was like a gothic fairytale; every building looked majestic and beautiful and no matter what time of the day or night it was, I always felt safe. The food was scrumptious and that's a lot coming from me as I'm the pickiest eater ever, I barely eat anything that isn't either cheese, pasta or a dessert :P And then there's the nightlife. With a crazy assortment of themed bars and clubs to indulge in - myself, my boyfriend and my boyfriend's brother had probably the best night out I've ever had. People were so nice and everywhere that we went left us with a hilarious story to tell so even when we got locked out of our apartment by their step dad, it was more of a giggle than a problem thanks to the strangers that we passed. If you haven't already been, then I highly recommend going there, you will not regret it!

Now onto the places I have yet to visit but cannot wait to explore; here are my top 5 places I want to travel to.

Ever since I was a teenager I've been obsessed with Japan and it is at the top of my list purely because there is just so much there that I feel appeals to me and I just know I would have the best time exploring the different sights. Tokyo is obviously the main place I want to travel too but I would also love to back pack around the towns and cities to see the temples, gardens and mountains which are well known for their beauty. It helps that Dane is a huge history nerd, with a huge interest in The Three Kingdoms and shares this passion with me and we've made a pact to visit both Japan and China to satisfy our geeky sides and tick them off our bucket list!

Next up is Toronto in Canada. Dane's dad lives here and I've heard nothing but amazing things about it, from family and even customers where I used to work, so it has quickly become one of my must go to places. Being a girl that loves the busy city life, I can't wait to see what Toronto has to offer. We've even talked about settling down and moving to Canada in a few years as personally we don't feel like England, especially the town we currently live in, has many positives keeping us here other than our families, obviously.

Venice is the hopeless romantic in me coming out. I have no real reasons why I want to visit here other than it looks romantic and pretty and I like carbs so I know I'll undoubtedly fall in love with the place.

Amsterdam is one of those places that I feel like I have to visit because everyone else seems to have been. More for my curiosity, I'd love to check out the museums and galleries, especially the Anne Frank house, as they are constantly raved about by everyone I know and of course I want to experience the food and beer on the markets as I've heard it's very tasty!

And lastly, Reykjavik in Iceland. Anyone who knows me will know my pure hatred towards sea food. I hate the smell of it, the taste of it and even just the thought of it being in my when I say I want to visit Iceland, everyone looks at me funny seeing as the majority of their menu revolves around fish. But alas, this will not put me off! I want to go here because it looks so damn gorgeous and I love the idea of being all cuddled up in a fluffy parka and exploring a snowy city with lots of hidden gems to offer. Blue Lagoon is one of those gems that I absolutely must visit, it looks incredible and I've also heard Reykjavik is notorious for it's night life which I'm very intrigued to discover ;)

There we have it, my top 5 places I want to visit. I have plenty of other countries I want to explore but if I list them, we'll be here all day so maybe another time :P In the mean time, feel free to leave me a comment if you've visited any of these places and have feedback on it or even if you wanna chat about the places that are on your travel bucket list!
