We have just booked flights to Bali in March to meet up with some friends from South Africa. This has got us all excited and thinking about our holiday destination bucket list.
Here are the top 6 places on our holiday bucket list, that we hope to travel to in the very near future.
This seems like quite a long haul flight from Sydney, but it will just have to be done! With so many picturesque islands to explore, warm blue water, history, culture and delicious Greek food, Greece is high up on our Bucket List. I (the Blonde) was there with my family when I was just a wee child. From what I can remember it was amazing and I would love to go back and experience it all again, now that I can appreciate all that Greece has to offer.
The fact that Fiji is a quick 4-hour flight from Sydney makes it a very tempting long weekend trip! Swaying palm trees, turquoise lagoons, tropical rainforest and plenty of areas to snorkel, this sounds like a dream island holiday!
We have only heard good things about Samoa! Reef bordered beaches, rainforests, waterfalls and more turquoise sea water, this island country looks absolutely beautiful and unspoilt! And of course, the To Sua ocean trench would be a must visit!
Mexico has been on the Beards bucket list ever since we met! And we can totally understand why. A country full of culture, spicy food, more palm smothered beaches, cactus-filled deserts and beautiful people. This is also quite a long flight from Sydney, but for a country that has all of this to offer, I think it will be well worth it!
5. The Philippines
Another island country, the Philippines consists of more than 7000 islands, imagine how much coastline there is to explore and how many beaches we can sunbathe on! It is a relatively undiscovered travel destination which makes it very appealing to us. The Philippines offers world class diving and snorkelling, misty mountain exploring and the worlds smallest monkey, the tarsier.
The only country on our list that isn’t a tropical beach holiday! Switzerland has long been a country we have wanted to visit for years now. And how could it not be, with some of the best cheese and chocolate in the world, it’s anyone’s dream holiday, right! And then there is the breathtaking scenery, the beautiful buildings and streets, the Swiss Alps, snow skiing and all the cheese and chocolate you could possibly dream of!
There is clearly a trend forming up above, give us good food, a beach and beautiful views and we will be happy!
