I’ ve written and rewritten this post ten thousand times. Okay, many times. Fine, more than once. Thing is, I get so excited and overdo it then end up asking myself why I didn’ t just post a picture of a map of the world on Instagram. Granted, narrowing down dream places to travel to is not the easiest but here we go.
My number one goal in 2017 is to travel Africa. Hello motherland!
1. Lamu, Kenya
I’m a big fan of coastal life, culture and history, and Lamu being the oldest Swahili settlement in East Africa, makes it a must visit. Pure bliss. There is an annual cultural festival held in the island, sign me up!
2. Zanzibar, Tanzania
Endless blue skies, beautiful beaches, history, coastal life, food, food, food…The spice island just screams vacation! It’ s no wonder Zanzibar is one of the leading travel destinations in Africa.
There is something about this beautiful country that intrigues me. Maybe it’ s the green landscapes, the warmth of the people, the history or just the fact that i can trek with gorillas haha. This would probably be my main motivation to join a gym. Kinyarwanda and French cannot and will not stop me!
Deep cultural roots of these beautiful people is what makes Ethiopia special in my opinion. It’ s crazy beautiful too. The hottest place on earth, Dallol, is in Ethiopia. Plus, i’ d love to visit the rock cut churches at Lalibela.
Super diverse and beautiful. Culture, nature, wildlife and more. Think panoramic views and endless horizons as per their tourist site. Namibia soon come.
Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls.
Tons of activities give you adrenaline rushes of a lifetime, one of the seven wonders of the world and home to the biggest New Year’ s party in Africa-Vic Falls Carnival.
add all African countries to list.
7. Bali, Indonesia
Think Bali, think wellness and relaxation. Elephants, tropical rainforests, monkeys, rice paddies, beaches, temples. Did I mention beaches?
8. Amsterdam, Netherlands
Art, narrow streets, canals, museums, crazy nightlife. It’ s safe to say there’ s not a dull moment in Amsterdam. Also a great start point to backpacking around Europe.
9. Havana, Cuba
Colourful streets, history, music, cars.
10. Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
Rio is full of life and colour and the Carnival.
If you have been to any of these places leave a comment below! What places are you dying to visit in 2017?
Well, that is my 2017 bucket list. I hope i’ ll be able to cross off places from the list this coming year. Dreams are valid right. And nothing is impossible to those who believe.
Happy New Year! Wishing you all a lovely year filled with happiness, and more adventure
