I love to travel and I do not get to as often as I would like.
With work and life getting in the way, It's difficult to find the time and the money to travel at all. I really hope I get to go to as many of these countries and places on my list as possible. I definitely have a serious case of wanderlust. I enjoy experiencing new things, people and places. Travel is an adventure in itself, and I will never say no to adventuring.
With budgeting being a huge factor, I honestly do not know If I will be able to travel to everything on my list, so I have narrowed it down to my five top places I would like to visit in the next 5 years.
1. Cayman Islands
I have been to the Cayman Islands once before, but when I was much younger. I would love to visit it now that I am older and visit the Sea Turtle Farm. It's a dream of mine, and a biggie on my everyday bucket list to swim, touch and hold a Sea Turtle.
I thought it was only fair to put this first on my list, because I want to do this as presently as possible.
I have always envisioned myself with my future hubby, in our own personal bungalow in the middle of the ocean on our honeymoon. This is definitely a dream vacation of mine.
Italy in general would be a desire of mine, but most specifically Tuscany. I know this is cliche, but ever since the movie "Under The Tuscan Sun" I have always wanted to travel there. I just want to be surrounded by beautiful flower fields and vineyards.
Never in my Twenty-Five years of living, did I ever think I would travel to my mothers homeland. My family left Cuba back in 1983. My mother has never been back. Now with the laws changing, and it being a little easier to travel there, I would love to take my mom back to her roots. I would love to learn and see where she grew up.
Granted, it still very difficult for Cuban Americans to travel there, but I would love to be able to give her that gift.
Have you ever seen the photos of the houses on the hill right on the water? The ocean water is a dark clear blue. It's heavenly. I can imagine myself on a romantic vacation. I'm enjoying the food, the culture, the people.
There is so much history in that country, and I would love to experience it all.
