Wander-list

In companion to my Life To-Do List, I put together a list of countries that are on my list (more visual aids, this way). Read on! 🙂

(It was really hard not to just pick a picture of the globe. So, prepare for frequent updates!)

BALI, INDONESIA

I’m ready to Eat Pray Love it all up in Bali.

THE GREAT BARRIER REEF

As a diver, this is clearly a must.

SOUTHERN THAILAND

I didn’t make it here when I went except for a brief stint on a tiny island–would love to see Phuket!

I haven’t seen much of the East Coast, and Boston is at the top of my list–beautiful and historical!

There are specific spots I would love to see (Amalfi Coast, Cinque Terre, Venice, Rome…) but really, I want to see it ALL.

MALDIVES

The perfect tropical escape.

NEW ZEALAND

My cousin studied abroad here and I was always sad I never got a chance to visit! She loved it.

ISTANBUL, TURKEY

I almost studied abroad here but they began to have some political issues. Still! The culture! The colors! Both Europe and the Middle East! It’s got it all.

NEW ENGLAND IN THE FALL

I’ve always wanted to drive down the coast, leaf-peeping! Autumn is my favorite and I’ve heard New England is nearly incomparable.

MAINE

I secretly have always wanted to live in Maine…but I should probably visit before I fully decide…

IGUAZU FALLS, ARGENTINA/BRAZIL

I have a thing for waterfalls.

ALASKA

I must see the Northern Lights here! And the glaciers! The mountains! The wildlife! Maybe I’ve wanted to live here ever since Julie of the Wolves in 5th grade. (Please tell me I’m not the only one who adored these books?)

PARIS

I’m slightly completely obsessed with Paris. Who’s with me?

A city carved in rocks? Are you kidding me?

BANFF NATIONAL PARK

My friends went there on their honeymoon and saw nine grizzly bears in like, two days! Or something. Anyway, it’s supposed to be a majestic mountain paradise.

QUEBEC

It’s like France. But closer. I could live here, too, I think. Especially if the whole Paris thing doesn’t work out.

JAPAN

Again with the cherry blossoms and amazing fall, I know. And…the history. Also, who wouldn’t want to visit the homeland of sushi?
