If you follow me online or read my blog regularly, you probably realize that I share a lot of bookish things and Bible verses, not so much about myself. So, I thought it would be fun to share a little about myself in a series of Friday introduction posts. This week I’m sharing some of my bucket list destinations.
10 of My Bucket List Destinations
Before I start, I should warn you, I’m fascinated by different cultures, so there are many places I want to visit. Today, I’ll share the first ten places on my bucket list.
France: I don’t know why I’m fascinated by France, I just am. The food, language, and culture are all reasons this country is on my bucket list.
Dubai: Don’t laugh, but part of the reason I want to visit Dubai is that I want to wear an abaya. I also want to see the mosques and experience the culture.
Italy: I’d love to see Florence, Rome, and all the places Italy is famous for. I want to eat Italian food made in Italy (but only if there are gluten-free options). I want to experience the culture and language. Who knows, I may even visit the opera.
The Bahamas: In truth, the entire Caribbean is on my bucket list, but The Bahamas is near the top of my Caribbean bucket list because I have a friend I’d like to meet in person.
Spain: Whenever I think of Spain, I imagine bold colors and the running of the bulls. Wouldn’t it be exciting to experience that up close?
Ireland: I read a lot of Nora Roberts and Maeve Binchy novels growing up. Many of their books feature Ireland and created a desire for me to see this beautiful country…especially since those stories always held a hint of the whimsical.
Greece: Specifically, I want to visit the village where that character from The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants spent her summer.
Bora Bora: I read somewhere (ages ago) that Bora Bora is one if the best places in the world to live. I’ve wanted to visit, and okay, settle there ever since
Egypt: Okay, so this is weird, but don’t judge me. Years ago, when my husband and I had just started dating, I’d been reading a book where the character had been riding camels in Egypt.
He may have been trying to have a conversation with me and I may have responded that he was disturbing me while I was riding a camel across the desert in Egypt. He still talks about it.
And of course, there are pyramids! Need I say more?
Scotland: This is another place inspired by books, and hello, highlanders and castle ruins!
As I was writing this list, I realized how many of the places I want to visit were inspired by fiction (either movies or books). It just goes to show how important art is and the impact it can have on people.
Do you have any of these countries on your bucket list? What country would you add to yours?
