“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

– Mark Twain


I thought this quote might be a perfect intro into this post about my bucket list. It expresses exactly what I believe and makes me want to sail away right now. I think, if we don’t travel as much as we can, we miss out beautiful places and memories we could have made. Traveling is something precious and can heal wounds. It can make people happy and it can leave people speechless. So everyone should explore, dream and discover more.

That’s the reason why I want to share my favorite must-visit places with you to give you some inspiration and to let you know what places you can expect on my blog in the future. Almost everyone has a bucket list for the perfect vacation, a list of cities, countries, and places you really want to visit in your lifetime. And so do I. So here it is – my exclusive list of places I want to visit in my life.


Cities & Regions









French Riviera

Lake Como

Lake Tahoe, USA

Yosemite, USA

Grand Canyon, USA

Great Ocean Road, Australia

Northern Lights in Norway

South Africa

New Zealand




Faroe Islands


Sri Lanka








I love being on the road and discovering new places, experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. So I hope you find some inspirations in my little bucket list and you will follow me on my further travels. I will update this list now and then because there is always a new place that I want to visit – I’m sure you know what I mean.

Since I’m always looking for new inspirations, too, I would love to know in which cities or countries you have been that I’ve just listed and what experiences you have made. If you are a blogger, you can link to a post of yours in the comment section below. I will read them all – promised!

I just got back form Oahu last week and I had the most amazing time. Here is my blog post: Everything on that list is suitable for adults too, not just kids. If you have any questions, ask away! Happy to help:)
