Wanderlust: 5 Places I Want to Visit


I have to admit, I was never that bothered about doing the travelling thing. I wanted to go on holidays with my family and my boyfriend and my friends, but I never felt the need to travel. Until now!

So today, I’m writing about 5 places I want to visit! Some of these are a possibility and may happen in the near future (blog posts would follow, of course!) and others are much more of a dream that I hope will come true!


This one is definitely a possibility! Everyone I know who has been to Edinburgh has recommended it to me, be it for New Years, Christmas or just a lovely weekend away. Although this would be a long drive (7 hours!), its one I’m thinking of planning.

Things I want to do:

  • Arthur’s Seat
  • The Royal Mile
  • See the ‘Birthplace of Harry Potter’
  • Edinburgh Castle


This is another one that could be possible! With such cheap flights and easy to find accommodation, this could be happening very soon! As a History student, this is going to be the perfect place for me to go and I’ll be in my element. My boyfriend and I want to go at Christmas time so this could be such a lovely trip. It’s making me so excited thinking about it!

Things I want to do:

  • Go to the Christmas markets
  • Berlin Wall Tour
  • See the Reichstag Building



This is still slightly possible, but perhaps a little less than the others! My boyfriend and I were looking into booking a trip to Iceland in January but it’s just so expensive! I’ve always been so interested in Iceland and although I know you’re not guaranteed to view the Northern Lights, it’s definitely on my bucket list to see them.

Things I want to do:

  • See the Northern Lights
  • Visit a Lagoon Spa
  • See the Hot Springs and Geysers



This is one that I may have to wait a while for! Again, the history of Athens makes it somewhere I have to visit at some point in my life. I took Classics at A-Level and I’ve always been so interested in Greek Mythology. I will save for years and years so I can go to Athens! This list will contain so many historical sites but I have to see all the places I’ve been learning about for years.

Things I want to do:

  • Visit the Acropolis and Parthenon
  • Visit the Temple of Zeus
  • See the Theatre of Dionysus
  • Visit the Panathenaic Stadium


New York City

Now, this one is 100% going to be in the future! I’m sure most people want to visit New York City at some point. For me, it’s always been a dream to go. It represents the TV shows I love – Friends and Gossip Girl – and so many attractions that I really want to see. The day I go to New York City will be one incredibly happy day!

Things I want to do:

  • Visit Times Square
  • Go to Central Park
  • See the exterior shot of Friends
  • Go across Brooklyn bridge
  • Visit the Statue of Liberty


This list could go on and on for New York, so I’ll stop there! So, these are the 5 places I really want to visit! Maybe in a year, I might have ticked one off! If you have any other suggestions of things to do in these places, leave me a comment!
