Travel Bucketlist | #travelgoals

Travel is life. I have been molded by my experiences on adventures and this is my list of trips I cannot wait to go on. #travelgoals

Namibia

Sand Dunes in Namibia

Namibia is a lesser-known travel locale in Africa, but its beauty is so raw and wild. It is notoriously safe and its really just the massive expanses you have to traverse that pose a risk. The trip would be a solo-overland trip around the country with my supplies and camping gear in the back.

Mt. Kilimanjaro

Mt. Kilimanjaro

Take a 5 to 6 day guided trek up Africa’s highest peak. The views from the base are epic, I cannot imagine what it’s like at the summit. Also, the physical feat of it would give you some dope bragging rights. After this challenge, I’d go on a safari before I head home.

Madagascar

Baobab Trees

I mean why wouldn’t you want to go see one of the most unique and diverse biospheres on the planet? I can only imagine the magic that is contained in this island. I love seeing diverse and unique ecosystems, it reminds me of the importance in treating my sweet earth-home well.

Tunisia

If you didn’t already know- I love the Middle East. Tunisia is somewhere I have always wanted to go in the Middle East. It sits on the beautiful Mediterranean Sea and has SO much history. It’s less travelled than Morocco, but I think packs the same punch in beauty and culture. I’m sure this trip will come sooner than later.

Iran

It’ll be a while before I can get here (thank you Uncle Sam). The Shia Mosques are so ornate, the intricate mosaic work can be appreciated by all, regardless of religion. The history and culture of Iran/Persia is absolutely something I want to experience. I know I’ll abaya up and roam the streets in utter amazement one day.

Mongolia

Yurt in Mongolia

This may sound insane to some of you, but I want to go live with a nomadic tribe in Mongolia for a year. There are a few reasons for this: 1. it is a very isolated country, traveling it will take a lot of time. 2. I am fascinated by nomads and would love to experience the complexities of the life. 3. Learn and understand my connection to the earth.

Colombia

Tallest Palm Trees in the world are in Colombia

Colombia has chilled out, especially in the last few years. I would like to go while people are still too scared to go and will likely in the next year (stay tuned!). Colombia is such a diverse country with beaches, rainforests, mountains, and high deserts. Cost of living is cheap and it’s easy to get around, why would a budget conscious traveler not want to go?

Ecuador

The Galapagos Islands. Volcanoes. The Amazon. The Andes Mountains. Scientists are still with relative regularity discovering new species. Literally so much adventure in store here. There is a fair chance a trip into Ecuador will accompany the trip to Colombia.

Patagonia

To my eyes, Patagonia is the southern hemisphere’s Iceland. It is extremely gorgeous at every turn and its geology is otherworldly. This trip will definitely require a larger budget as I’m certainly not hiking Patagonia on my own and will have to join a guided trip so I don’t die. But I’m not even worried, any amount paid will be beyond worth the dream of seeing this place.

Glacier National Park, USA

Glacier is a huge national park in the US area of Montana. The photos I have seen come out of here may make it one of the most beautiful places I have seen in the US. I would love to take a few days and hike the park and take in its glacial cut peaks and valleys.

Death Valley, USA

The lowest place on the planet and also one of the hottest. It sits near a fault like in California and you can see the geologic activity has shaped the rocks and desert floor. I am hoping the next time I am home in the winter, I can take a few days to head out and see the mysterious self-rolling rocks and what looks like the gates to hell.
