Travel Wish Lists


I enjoy every place I visit, even if it doesn’t end up a favourite, the experience of being able to travel is always enough.

Each year, I dream about places I’d love to make it, and draw up a wishlist. Little by little, I make my way through my ultimate travel wishlist, too.

Originally, I wrote the below list for 2020, but with COVID, I’m rolling these places over to 2021. Do I expect to be able to visit all of the below in a year where travel will still look so different? No, of course not. But, these are the places I’m dreaming of exploring on the regular. 

  • Explore the Scottish highlands (hello, whisky tastings) 
  • Eat every vegetarian taco in sight in Mexico City, and explore the capital’s cultural gems (visited in January 2020)
  • Breathe in the fresh air of The Dolomites on a weekend trip to the mountains
  • Meander the breathtakingly picturesque streets of Malta– pre-historic temples, hidden coves, limestone cobbled streets, and a history of remarkable intensity
  • Cheers gluhwein at Christmas markets in the adorable villages of Germany and France
  • Get off the grid in Guatemala–  soaking in colonial houses, cobblestone streets, soaring volcanoes and remnants of a traditional, indigenous way of life
