My 2018 Travel Bucket List | With Destination2.co.uk*


Although at the moment, 'travel' for me goes about as far as getting an Uber to the petrol garage to buy cookies, I do actually LOVE packing my bags and exploring the world. There's countless places I want to go, hundreds of things I want to see, tons of delicacies I want to devour and a few oceans I still need to dip my toes in. 

I wasn't able to go abroad last year [or anywhere, rly!] thanks to living my own personal health nightmare and residing in hospitals for the majority [I'm still fuming at 2017... I haven't forgiven you & I won't forget, you top tit!] - so my travel bug has gone into overdrive from being cooped up for so long! 

I've popped together a Travel Bucket List today featuring some of the beautiful places I properly want to visit, inspired by some of the fab offers on the Destination2.co.uk website & all the enticing information I found over there. My stack of credit cards are shaking in their boots right now - and mini sirens are most likely going off at NatWest HQ; but if there's one thing I don't actually mind spending dollar on, it's travel. It's such an amazing experience and worth so much more than just another lipstick or eyeshadow palette. 80 year old me won't remember my obsession with the latest Violet Voss release; but she will remember the sights, sounds and smells of the countries & towns she's had the pleasure of visiting over the years.

Greece [again]
I adore Greece - I'd move there in a heartbeat. I love the people, the food, the BEAUTIFUL scenery and of course; all the cats & rude, naked fridge magnets. I visited Mykonos in 2016 and it captured my heart big time - it's ridiculously Instagrammable and nails my dream, minimal aesthetic... framed with pink flowers, white-washed buildings and the bluest seas. I also gave a piece of my heart to Kefalonia when I visited in 2015 - a small, quiet and STUNNING part of the world, with some unreal food.

Bali
This slice of exotic heaven has been on my must-see list for years. Those bright blue waves, beautiful beaches and perfect palm trees call my name so bad. It looks like the perfect place to relax and really immerse yourself in the culture... I'd be constantly charging my camera battery if I visited, it honestly takes my breath away.

Dubai
I've always been a bit intrigued by Dubai - it just seems like one of those places you've just gotta see to believe. And the temperatures ... HELLOOOOOOOOO!! My fit friend Cally is off to Dubai soon, so I'm totes gonna vicariously live through her adventures - and I have a few friends who've just full on upped sticks and relocated there for job opportunities... so you never know!

Ras Al Khaimah is a resort in the UAE which piqued my attention when browsing deals on Destination2. It's one of  the Middle East's lesser-known resorts, but that's what draws me to it tbh - the idea of tranquility and less tourists cluttering up my Instagram shots! Its hotels are as luxurious as you'd expect, the beaches look beaut and there's loads to see - such as historic Arabian monuments, a huge Water Park and the Rak Zoo. Yaaaaas.

The Maldives 
Obv I'm an extremely basic blogger biatch and therefore I have to visit The Maldives before I kick the bucket. Those BEAUTIFUL beaches and endless blue seas need to be explored by me & my camera. And of course, I HAVE to visit that Underwater Restaurant where the fish just casually swim around you as you're dining. Even if all I could afford was a bread basket. I love fish. Omg and sharks too. No don't, I need to go immediately.

Seychelles
Again, the basic blogger in me needs to tick this stunning location firmly off my bucket list; and frolic on its perfect sandy beaches with the dream body I'm too lazy to work out and achieve. But a girl can dream, hey

Barbados
Although there is a part of me that wants to book Barbados so I can yell 'Barbados! One way!' to a taxi like in the Avicii music video [but not get hit by a truck in the process] the rest of me is all about dat sun tan, blue oceans, festivals and food. It just looks so vibrant & fun - as well as proper beaut and sunny AF. One way, pls.
