Fionn and I have been joking about our "Baby Bucket List", as in all the weird places we want to travel to before kids come along. We probably won't get to all these places, but if you're going to dream, why not dream big, right? These aren't in any particular order, I just think all of them sound exciting!
10. Petra, Jordan
Fionn has already been here (maybe one day I'll post his stunning pictures from that trip) but I'm eager to get my chance to see Petra. Isn't this stunning?
Fionn has also been here already, but I'd love to see the Biblical sights. Jerusalem seems like a fascinating place.
Once this part of the world calms down a little, I'd love to see the pyramids. As a huge history buff, visiting Egypt would be a dream come true!
7. St. Petersburg
Once again, this is on Fionn's been there, done that list. But I'd love to see Russia, especially this pretty city. And preferably in one of the warmer months...
We wanted to go here for Christmas, but visas and government shutdown delays spoiled that plan. But one day I would love to see this incredible country.
Japan seems like an incredible place with so much interesting culture and history. It's supposed to be extremely expensive, so maybe this will be a short trip...
4. New Zealand
Fionn has been here too (surprise surprise!) but said he would absolutely go back. Stunning nature, friendly people, and Lord of the Rings? I'm in.
We wanted to go here after our India plans fell through, but riots in Bangkok also put those plans on hold. I'm still interested in going and seeing some gorgeous beaches and temples. Maybe next year?
I would love to see this beautiful country of contrasts.
1. Costa Rica
Something a little closer to home! I've heard amazing things about Costa Rica and would love to visit one day. What's not to love about rainforests?
