Top 5 Places I Want to Visit

Traveling is something that I love to do. I’ve shared here on the blog my bucket list, and everyday, despite the lockdowns currently going on in the world, I look forward to the time when I can start ticking things off of the list again. But I wondered, with my feet itching to travel again somewhere, what are the top 5 places I want to visit?

This was something I thought would be easy for me to name, but it was actually not. I just honestly want to go everywhere, see every country there is and experience different cultures. But I tried to narrow them all down nonetheless, so for day 4 of my 30-Day Blog Challenge, here are the top 5 places I want to visit:

1. South America

Okay, I know what you’re thinking, this is an entire continent and not specific enough. But it’s really been just a dream of mine to backpack all over South America. I tried to choose my top one or at least name my favorite countries, but I still can’t do it. It’s like to me, if I’m going to visit one country, I have to visit all.

It’s just everything about it. The culture, the people, the nature… the whole experience the continent has to offer makes it my top backpacking destination. And I would’ve actually already been traveling here by now if not because of COVID-19.

2. Switzerland

After South America, Switzerland is my next dream destination. I mean, it’s just sooo beautiful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a photo that turned me off from this country. I’ve always been such an island girl, but now, I actually look forward to seeing more beautiful nature and to me, Switzerland offers one of the best.

3. Antarctica

I remember watching An Inconvenient Truth as a kid and saying to myself that I’d visit Antarctica someday. Up to now, it’s still one of the top places I want to see. The wildlife, the landscapes, the education… the whole experience for sure is going to be one of the best I will have in my lifetime.

4. Hawaii

When I think of the best vacation, Hawaii comes up to my mind. The weather, the beaches, the volcanoes, the marine life, the culture! It’s such a perfect place to relax and unwind. I’ve heard people comparing Hawaii to Siargao Island here in the Philippines and I love that island! Definitely can’t wait to visit Hawaii.

5. Hamburg, Germany

From South America on the list being an entire continent I want to visit, to Hamburg, a specific city in Germany. Not gonna lie, it’s because of my girlfriend. But from what she tells me too, it sounds like a really amazing city! Coming from Manila which is a city I dislike living in, it will be interesting to see and experience what a beautiful, liveable city is like.

And that’s it! Those are the top 5 places I want to visit. If you’ve been to any of these destinations, I would love to hear your suggestions and favorite experiences. And let me know too: What are the top 5 places you want to visit? :)

I hope you all stay safe and I’ll see you again tomorrow.
