Travel Bucket List

travel bucket list

After going to Ireland this past May, I have serious travel fever. There are so many places I want to go, so many things I want to do, but unfortunately I have to be an adult and it sucks. I really am considering starting a travel fund and once I reach a certain amount, take the time to go visit places, even if I go on my own!

While having this want, I have a huuuge bucket list that I’ve been developing in my head over time and I figured, why not put it all into words for you guys? Maybe we have similar wants (and we can do them together!).

  • Go shopping in New York City
  • See Central Park during Christmas time
  • See a show on Broadway
  • Visit Big Ben
  • Ride a double decker bus in London
  • See the Northern Lights
  • Swim in the clear water of the Philippines
  • Go to New Orleans during Mardi Gras
  • Attend Oktoberfest
  • Backpack through Europe
  • Go to King’s Cross in London
  • Go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter
  • Visit castles in Scotland
  • See the cherry blossoms in Japan
  • Toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain
  • Swim with dolphins
  • Swim under a waterfall
  • Ride in a gondola
  • Tour the Warner Bros studio in London
  • Visit Wynott’s Wands in Massachusetts
  • Go to the Bonnaroo music festival for the entire time
  • Stay in a hostel in a European town
  • Go to Disney World

May: Ireland, Birthday, & Life

may recap

I swear I am going to get back into blogging regularly. There has just been so much going on in my life and I can’t believe that it’s already June! It feels like 2017 just started yesterday. My life has been a whirlwind of ups, downs, and turnarounds for months now. May was no exception to this. So much happened during this month! I traveled outside of the country and rode on a plane for the first time, I had my 22nd birthday while IN Ireland, and I’ve had a rollercoaster of emotions going through my head as the month has carried out.

may recap

Ireland: Let me just tell you… if you’ve never been to Ireland, go… right now. Go on online, buy your ticket, and go spend a holiday there. I cannot tell you how amazing this experience was for me. I had so many new things that I got to experience from visiting historical sites to going to pubs to having some fab gelato. I would not trade any of these memories for anything. I also want to to thank my family and friends for all they did to help me prepare for that trip and for wishing me luck and safe travels during my journies. I traveled to Belfast, Galway, Cork, and Dublin while I was there. I will have an entire blog post dedicated to this trip here soon… once I sort through my thousands of pictures.

Birthday: While I was in Ireland, I celebrated my 22nd birthday! Although there was no cake or balloons, just the experience of turning 22 in another country was enough to make it an amazing birthday. Although 22 isn’t an “exciting” birthday for most people, I am determined to make this year my best yet. I am so excited for all the things that my future has in store; I am going on a paranormal overnight tour of Waverly Hills Sanatorium this month, I start student teaching in August, and my pup turns one in November! There is so much to look forward to.

Life: As you may have noticed in my intro, I have had some ups and downs on the emotional front. I have hit some pretty low lows and had hardly any highs at all (no pun intended). Ever since my mom passed away, it feels as if life is not as exciting. Ireland was a huge highlight and has truly uplifted my spirits in many ways. At first, her passing made me realize how precious life is and how important family and friends are, but after awhile, I just kept falling deeper into a depression that I cannot explain. After hitting myself in the head a few times for these awful thoughts, I have now rehashed those feelings of a bright life and bright future. I just hope I can keep on this path of positivity throughout these next few months.

I’d love to hear how you all’s May went. I mean, it had to be brilliant because you all are amazingly fantastic individuals who deserve everything you desire out of life, but who knows… you may have gotten an iguana while I was away! Let me know in the comments below, I miss you all. ❤️

P.S. How come no one told me how amazing tea in the morning is? #justirishthings #actuallyithinkitsaeuropeanthing
