It's March and by now I feel I have more of a handle on what my travel plans will be for the rest of the year. One of my favorite things to do is plan trips, It's so exciting! I wish I was a travel blogger that actually got paid to do this but until then I need my 9-5. As you may know I have a Travel Bucket List with all the places I've been to last year and all of the places I want to visit before I leave Germany in a year and a half. I'm going for 30 countries and so far I'm about half way through so that makes me right on track.
This year I have a lot of travel that is already booked, waiting to be booked, or still swimming around in my head. I'm dreaming big and I'm dragging B along. The best part of this year is that I will finally get to go to my top two dream locations; Spain and Iceland. So let's get down to it!
This is Happening
I am going this month for a short but sweet day trip. I never thought I would go to Slovakia but the opportunity was there and I am glad to take it. If you have been there please give me some suggestions on what to do for the day!
This is going to be a really special trip because I will be joining my alma mater in Dublin for a Penn State game! I've been away from home for a year and a half now and it will be good to see some fellow Penn Staters! And it's in Dublin, I mean, it can't get any better than that. One of my friends from school is even going with. Can't wait. Is anyone else going to the game?
This one is a last minute plan but it's 100% happpening. I'm only going for a day trip to see the area and visit the Les Puces Des Metz (flea market). What else is there to do in Metz??
Spain has been on my list since I was younger. I took Spanish for 10 years and a lot of my studies were about Spain so I feel like I've been waiting for this moment since 6th grade. I'm actually going to Spain twice this year, can you believe it? I'll be taking my last class for my graduate degree in southern Spain and while I'm there I'll be branching out to visit cities like Madrid, Seville, Gibralter, and more. I'll be visiting Barcelona later in the year.
It's finally happening guys and I know for sure because I just booked tickets a few days ago. I talk about Iceland an unhealthy amount and I've been wanting to go there since I was like 13. I have a list of things I want to do there but please share with me your must sees. I'll be there during summer time. I've been having a great time reading all those Iceland related posts and Kiki's blog, Unlocking Kiki.
Even though I live in Germany I wanted to include it on the list because I will be visiting several cities all over Germany this year. Also, many flea markets throughout Germany, not to mention the new Christmas Market destinations I'll go to.
This will Hopefully Happen
The above trips are confirmed! Some of the other places I have in the works, but are not confirmed are Portugal (I really hope this happens), Austria, Milan, Switzerland, Budapest, and possibly another go at Prague.
I Might Have to Keep Dreaming
Finally, I don't know how I can possibly fit anything else into my schedule but if I can, these are on my keep dreaming list for this year: Thailand, Morroco, and Berlin. I know I know, I live in Germany I should be able to just go to Berlin, but I live in southern Germany and Berlin is still quite a drive. I think I'm secretly saving it for a last minute thing. And who knows, I may decide to switch things up and go to a totally different place than mentioned. I've learned to take things as they come and not wait around for the perfect moment.
So do you have a Travel Bucket List this year? And, do you have any pointers for my upcoming destinations? Share in the comments.
