Like many others, I love to travel! Just think of all the beautiful cultures, people, architecture, natural scenery, and adventures we have yet to experience. For me, I want to travel the world! In the year of 2016, I traveled to 6 countries. 6!
Here are just 5 of the destinations on my travel bucket list:
Morocco is a Northern African country that borders the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The official language is Arabic but many other languages are spoken like French, Berber dialects, Spanish, and more. With holding a population of approximately 30,704,000, Morocco is a growing tourist destination.
Morocco is known for its diversity of traditions, religion, and natural landscapes. In particular, I would love to ride a camel into the sunset in the Merzouga Dunes. I also want to have the ultimate photo shoot in the blue streets of Chefchaouen. Most of all, shop in their large markets and buy tons of spices!
Thailand is a Southeast Asian country known for its tropical beaches and grand palaces. It is about three times the size of Florida; slightly more than twice the size of Wyoming. With a population of about 68,200,824 people Thai is the official language spoken by 90.7% of the population. Burmese is spoken by less than 2% of the population and English is a secondary language to the elite.
I want to travel to Thailand mainly because the culture grasps me greatly. I want to visit the beautiful temples that are in Thailand such as Wat Pho and Wat Phra Kaeo (the grand palace). I also want to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery that graces this country. Thailand is also a home to a large number of ELEPHANTS! (My favorite animal in the whole world!)
Australia is located between the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific with the population of approximately 22,992,654 people. Several languages are spoken such as English (most dominant language), Italian, Mandarin, Arabic, Greek, Cantonese, Vietnamese, and more. I personally did not know so many languages were spoken in Australia – you learn something new everyday.
Personally I want to connect with the aboriginal native peoples of Australia; I want to know their culture because it is so shocking to me that these people are completely disregarded. I always wanted to learn how to surf and where is a better place to learn? I also want to hike the various national parks. Australia is also known for their amazing zoos in which house koalas! KOALAS people!!
Spain is a Southwestern European country with a population of approximately 48,563,476 people. Madrid being the capital city. Castilian Spanish is the official language country wide but depending on regions, Catalan is spoken by approximately 70% of the population.
Fun fact: I’m going to Spain by the end of the year! I am so excited because I know they eat bread with every meal and I can eat a good half a loaf of bread alone in one sitting (I love carbs and I’m proud). I can’t wait to try all the tapas (small appetizers) Spain has to offer. They are known for being very laid back and not rushing; we shall see how that goes being a girl from the Big Apple city of New York. I want to witness the famous flamenco and explore the beautiful coast of Spain. Spain, I’m ready for you!
A country located between Chile and Uruguay and a population of about 43,886,748 people. Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina. Spanish (official), Italian, English, German, French, indigenous (Mapudungun, Quechua) are all languages spoken in Argentina.
I always wanted to travel to Buenos Aires and explore its vibrant scenery; it is known for having a bohemian feel. I also want to be able to visit to one of the world’s last advancing glaciers, Glaciar Perito Moreno. And how can you travel to Argentina and not go to a fútbol game?
These are only 5 of the thousands of destinations I will travel to. Tell me what’s on your bucket list?
Queen on Queens; Queen on!
