The 10 Day You Challenge continues!
We are on challenge seven, which brings us to sharing “seven wants.” Since this topic is very broad and could go in a number of directions, I decided to create a sub-topic and make it “seven travel-related wants.” As you guys know, traveling is a passion of mine and, if given the opportunity and the means to so, something I hope to do a lot of throughout my lifetime. Here are seven travel-related activities I am dying to do at some point in my life!
I’d love to hear about some of your travel-related “wants” in the comments section of this post!
Seven (Travel-Related) Wants
- Scuba Dive All Over the World
I love scuba diving! Exploring life under the sea and scuba diving all over the world is a big “want” of mine. It’s hard to imagine anything topping our experience of scuba diving with sea lions in the Galapagos (an experience that is in the top five best days of my life!), but some scuba diving destinations that have caught my eye include The Great Barrier Reef (obviously), Isla Mujeres or Richelieu Rock (to hopefully see whale sharks), Kauai, Palau and the Maldives.
- See Whales in the Wild
Another BIG want! One of my dreams is to see whales in the wild. I cannot even imagine what would go through my mind if I saw orcas or humpback whales in their natural habitat. Just the thought of it gives me chills!
- Go On An African Safari
It seems like a lot of my travel desires center around seeing incredible animals in their natural environment and an African safari is a travel-related “want” that is at the very top of my list. The thought of seeing lions, elephants and giraffes in the wild absolutely blows my mind.
- Go On A Romantic Island Vacation with Ryan
Our trip to Oahu, Hawaii is something Ryan and I still talk about regularly as one of our best vacations to date. I would love to explore another gorgeous island destination with Ryan. I’m not picky at all about where we go, I’d just love to fill our days with sunshine, scuba diving, seafood, relaxation and adventure. Some island destinations that have caught my eye: The Maldives (if you want to drool, check out The Only & Only Resorts), Tahiti and Fiji. And if we could stay in a hut over the ocean, I wouldn’t complain oooone bit!
- Go On A Ski Trip with Friends
This is something my friends and I have been talking about for years and I’m determined to make it happen one day! I think skiing with a group is ideal for me since I’ll want to ski but not ski all day every day. A winter wonderland vacation with friends where we can ski, snowmobile and relax in a big house together sounds amazing to me! My friends and I are also dying to do a tour of Europe together which I think would be incredible.
- Explore National Parks
I’m not picky at all about which national parks I see in what countries, but I want to see a bunch! Banff National Park in Canada (pictured above) looks absolutely breathtaking. Denali National Park, Bardia National Park, Kakadu National Park, Table Mountain National Park, Yellowstone National Park and many more are on my list! As exciting as cities may be, it’s the outdoors that truly call to me and the more and more research I do about national parks all over the world, the more and more I find myself dying to visit and explore a bunch throughout my life.
- Go On A Bike Tour Vacation
I’ve heard wonderful things about bicycle tour vacations and though I have no idea where I’d want to do one, I know it’s something that really intrigues me. It seems like such a neat way to explore a new location in an active and adventurous way!
Now it’s your turn…
Question of the Afternoon
- What are some of your top travel-related “wants?”
I’ve listed a bunch of mine above, but it was really hard to limit my travel desires to seven bullet points. I am also dying to go on a road trip across the United States, explore many different countries (Greece, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and Switzerland to name a few), hike all over the world, go white water rafting and more!
