Bucketlist in Review ~ Travel Edit 2

As the year is coming to a close, I wanted to take sometime to review my 30B430 bucketlist specifically the travel edit portion. You see, I split my 30B430 bucketlist into two sections: Life Edit and Travel Edit. The Life Edit covers everything I would like to try out before I am 30. The Travel Edit covers all the places I would like to visit before I hit 30 next year.

2016 has been such a busy and blessed year, I have been to so many countries its unreal. Sometimes I wake and pinch myself just to make sure it is real that I accomplished what I have accomplished.

Travel Edit 2 ~ Accomplished

when I was writing down the 15 places I wanted to visit, I must confess I chose the ones I thought would be good fun. What I mean by this is visiting places where I could go with someone and not just alone. But as it turned out, so far I have gone to many of these place alone. Places like Paris, Prague even Venice are always more romantic when you go with a lover. But a nice girls weekend away sure does the trick when there is no lover to go with. So without further adieu, let’s see where I have been so far:

Travel Edit 2 ~ Remainder 

So far I have managed to visit 6 cities from my Bucketlist. I am not sure if I will be able to visit the remainder 6 cities abroad but I will certainly try. July 7 I turn 30, which means I have just under 7 months left to visit all of these places. I am already looking at deals to some of these destinations and hoping to squeeze of on the list below on.

  • Berlin, Germany
  • Nice, France  {Booked for December
  • Athens, Greece
  • Stockholm, Sweden 
  • Rome, Italy 
  • Barcelona, Spain

Travel Edit 2: Staycation ideas 


I recently shared my plans to do more staycations within the UK and I am hoping these three will be the first. I have always said I wanted to visit these three places but unfortunately I haven’t and now that I am able I will.

  • Cornwall, England
  • Stonehenge, England 
  • Lake District

I am excited to do all the travels left especially the staycations.

    Great bucket list! I live in Cornwall and I can’t recommend it enough. But don’t come before March because there is nothing to do till the sun is shining. Barcelona is fab, we just got back from there. You can do it so cheaply as well if you stay in an airbnb with a kitchen and shop at the local markets. x

    Sounds like a great travel list! I have never been to Barcelona but now added this place in my travel list!

    One of my closest friends is from Greece. She is so special. They say if you visit an island everyday for the rest of your life you still won’t see them all.

    • December 2, 2016 / 10:38 am

      Oh wow, I am now even more excited to visit Greece

    I love your goals. I was talking to my mom about your Venice travels. Told her I am bound and determined to see something somewhere when I get older. So I may just have to compile a 60 before 60 list. My 30b430 has expired.

    • December 2, 2016 / 10:33 am

      Hahaha I love that your 30B430 is expired, maybe just long overdue lol.

  19. November 29, 2016 / 3:23 pm

    I have never been to Barcelona or Rome but would love to visit one day. Cornwall and Stonehenge are great – we have had fab family holidays at both. Have fun 🙂

    • December 2, 2016 / 10:32 am

      I am yet to visit these places in Spain and Italy and also can not wait to visit Cornwall and the Stonehenge too

  20. November 29, 2016 / 2:33 pm

    Barcelona is so great, you will love it. Tour a Gaudi building if you can, not just Sagrada Familia.

    • December 2, 2016 / 10:32 am

      I hope to remember that and visit both

    I’m a huge fan of Staycations! There are so many hidden gems in the town that I live in and I have yet to explore them 🙂

    • December 2, 2016 / 10:31 am
