There are tons of places I want to visit, some closer to home some further away, and I don’t like setting myself a time frame to do something, but today I did. It wasn’t easy, but I enjoyed creating this list. It really made me think about what places a really want to visit and why.
Here is my list of places I want to visit, hope you enjoy reading and dreaming as much as I did creating it.
1. Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia
Plitvice Lakes National park is located in Croatia, Europe in the mountainous region. The lake system is comprised of 16 bigger named and several smaller unnamed lakes, cascading one into the next. It is divided into Upper and Lower lakes. Upper lakes consist of 12 lakes and lower lakes consist of 4 bigger named lakes and several smaller ones.
The Plitvice Lakes National Park offers seven different routes to tour the lake system, and four hiking trails for the visitors. There are very strict rules for visitors in order to maintain and preserve the natural beauty this park offers. The park is open to visitors the entire year and the ticket price starts from 11$ depending on the category.
Here you can find all the beautiful photos of the National Park.
Just look at this beautiful nature. There aren’t specific places I want to visit in Norway, I want to visit the entire country. I want to see the fjords, northern lights, waterfalls, woods, everything Norway has to offer basically. I’ve managed to scribble down a short list of places, just to get your brain tickled a bit:
Oslo – the capital of Norway, home of Edvard Munch Museum (The Scream), the city where you can try indoor skiing, or visit the most beautiful Botanical Garden and its climate house;
Preikestolen – the most famous Southern Norway hiking spot is a steep cliff that rises 604 meters above the Lysefjorden. I left you a link so you can see the beauty and get informed when to go there and how;
Bergen – the city that inspired Frozen, a bunch of medieval buildings and the rain (Bergen is famous for it);
Flamsbana Railway – if you are not a hiker, this is the perfect way to get up into the mountains, see an incredible waterfall and experience some amazing views; Fjords – I would dare to say that fjords are my number one places I want to visit when I land in Norway;
Steinsdalsfossen Waterfall – did you ever wish to walk behind a waterfall? If you did, you must visit Steinsdalsfossen Waterfall.
I can go on and on with this list, but I will stop here and move on to the next place I want to visit.
3. Burano in Italy
The most colorful city in Italy, Burano. It is is an island in the Northern Venetian Lagoon, not so far away from Venice. It is not only famous for its colorful houses but for the needle lace. The tradition of painting houses related to the island’s history as a fishing village—the bright colors made it easier for returning fishermen to find their homes in the thick fog of the lagoon.
4. Isle of Skye, Scotland
The Isle of Skye is located in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. It is a place of breathtaking scenery, peculiar towns, and dazzling coastline. Skye’s biggest town, Portree, has just over 2,000 inhabitants and it is the capital of the Isle. Besides the picturesque landscape, you can find some dinosaur prints on its softest sedimentary rocks at Staffin.
5. Lakes in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, USA
If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a sucker for stunning landscapes. Just look at the landscape of Lakes in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, USA. Most of the lakes in this National park were carved by glaciers which gives them the most magical color.
6. Jerusalem in Israel
Jerusalem is located in the Middle East, located on a plateau in the Judaean Mountains between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea in Israel. It is the religious and historical epicenter of the world, holy to Jews, Muslims, and Christians. The old city of Jerusalem is what I want to visit for its historical value.
7. The Seychelles
The Seychelles have been on my list of places I want to visit for a long time, so of course, I had to put them on this list. It is an archipelago comprising of around 115 islands, with lush tropical vegetation and beautiful beaches. Just imagine yourself on this beach with a coconut cocktail in your hand and enjoy until you go there in person.
8. Bora Bora, Tahiti in French Polynesia
One more place I want to visit that is on my list for so long is Bora Bora. Just like the Seychelles, this is a place for relaxation. It is a small island surrounded by sand-fringed motus and a turquoise lagoon protected by a coral reef. Scuba dive here is a must.
9. New Zealand
Here’s another country with breathtaking landscapes I want to visit. And just like Norway, there aren’t a specific places I want to visit but entire country. There are so many things to see and do. You can visit the Waitomo glow worm cave, or Hobbiton if you are into The Lord of the Rings, or explore Fiordland and Stewart Island.
Last but not least on this list is Iceland. Don’t be fooled by its name, Iceland is not just land of ice, the scenery in spring/summer/autumn is stunning. During the winters it truly is an ice land. You can see northern lights, bathe in the Blue Lagoon, go whale watching, walk behind a waterfall at Seljalandsfoss, and more.
This was my list of 10 places I want to visit, hopefully in the next 10 years. It sounds like a good plan, a place every year. If you are like me, you would want to capture all your memories, here are some tips and courses for taking better photography and make your memories like a pro.
