The 10 Countries I Most Want to Visit

Ready for this? I’m excited about this post. To share with you where I want to go most in the world. What things I want to see. What places I want to go. What experiences I want to have. Do I want to go on a safari in South Africa, or a trek in Greenland? I guess we’ll find out. (Note: None of the photos in here are by me because, obviously, I don’t have pictures from any of these places.)

10. Italy

Whether you’re interested in the creative Dolomites or beautiful Mediteranean beaches, Italy is surely for you. Or maybe you’re more into the pasta, or the Roman history. My biggest pull is the Alps in Northern Italy, with their beauty unmatched by any other. Certainly guarantees I’m gonna visit. Soon.

9. Cuba

Cuba has been in the news recently, both when Obama started allowing American tourists to visit Cuba again, and when Trump stopped it. Cuba is a beautiful country, whether you’re visiting the culture of Havana, the beaches of Varadero, or the cliffs of Baracoa. Lucky I’m not American!

8. USA

I know. I’ve already been here. I live here! But there are two very specific places in the USA that I haven’t been, and I really want to. Kauai and Alaska. Polar opposites, I know. But both equally beautiful. Hawaii’s outermost inhabited island, Kauai, sits as green and rainy as you can get. While Alaska, America’s biggest state, is a land of the cold mountainous Arctic.

7. Thailand

The Phi Phi Islands are a tranquil paradise. Phuket is a beach goers go to. Bangkok is shopping central. Chiang Mai is the home of history. Thailand is full of different destinations, all different and unique. And all up there on my bucket list.

6. Maldives

The Maldives have always been super high on my list. And it’s all because of the beaches. Want beaches? The Maldives have them. All of them. They also have underwater hotels and glowing beaches. But that’s a story for another day.

5. Faroe Islands

Not many people know the Faroe Islands exist. I didn’t either till this year. But oh am I glad I do now. The majestic natural beauty this small country holds is amazing. Only 50,000 people, the Faroe Islands get crowded quick. So don’t tell anyone about it.

4. Argentina

The main reason I want to visit Argentina is because of Patagonia, in the southern part of the continent. At the southernmost tip of the continent is Ushuaia, a small town and the center of Argentinian Patagonia. Definitely pretty stunning.

3. Chile

We’re getting closer to the bottom of the list, and it’s just getting better and better. Chile and Argentina are mainly a tie, because both of the countries make up Patagonia. Can’t really choose one over the other. Nonetheless, Torres del Paine National Park in Chile is a stunner.

2. Norway

Number 2. Not the best. But pretty damn good. Norway is a mesmerizing country. It’s fjords, from Bergen to Lofoten, captivate everyone that visits. And I can’t wait till it captivates me. I need to be able to stand above a fjord, and be on top of the world.

1. Iceland

Yes! You guessed it. Iceland, the land of stunning beauty and serenity, has long been my #1. I want to see the puffins on it’s cliffs and the fjords in the North. I want to travel to the volcanoes in the Midlands or the Black beaches of Vik. Spend time in the capital, or south of it to the Blue Lagoon. It’s a place with infinite opportunities for experiences to be remembered forever, and for photos to be looked at throughout the ages. I just need to figure out a way to go!
