Our 2017 Travel Bucketlist – Through Europe and Beyond
I’m abnormal. I plan trips for years to come. Example A: In 2018, I’m going to Iceland. Yea… I know it’s a long way away, but it keeps me motivated! To help narrow down where we really want to go in 2017 I decided to put together our ultimate bucket-list inspired by fellow travel bloggers that we shamelessly follow.
Are any of these places on your bucketlist? If not, what’s on your bucketlist?
UK and Ireland Weekend Breaks
An easy 3-hour train ride from Dublin city we are dying to try out Sligo’s popping food scene. Sidewalk Safari had us drooling over the fantastic food choices in her post on the Sligo Food trail.
South West Cornwall
Only a few times in my life have I ever been so enamored with a place that I immediately started looking up places to stay when I booked my trip to visit. Eppie’s post on South West Cornwall did exactly that and I can’t stop thinking about this picture-perfect place.
Dingle! This picture just doesn't convey how many hundreds of people were there in July. Absolutely overrun! … … … #passionpassport #shadesofgreen #coastline #mytinyatlas #travelawesome #travelblogger #outbounderlife #stayandwander #exploremore #globelletraveller #dingle #thekingdom #kerry #inspireland #irelandinspires #discoverireland #irelandpassion #sailaway #wanderireland
The 2017 TBEX Europe conference is in Killarney and I cannot wait to make my way down to this beautiful part of Ireland. I love Rachel In Ireland’s post on Dingle and this picturesque corner of the world.
European City Breaks
There's nothing like running set and barefoot on icy ground in -5 degree weather! The Szechenyi Baths in Budapest are a popular spot for locals and visitors alike. The thermal waters are equal parts medicinal and relaxing (plus we had a fun time being pushed in circles around the whirlpool in the outdoor pool in this picture!) I'm not sure if it's possible to love Budapest any more than I do! #budapest #hellobudapest #visitBudapest #visithungary #cnntravel #ttot #travel #Instatravel #travelgram #travelblogger #hungary #cnntravel #timeoutsociety #wondrworld #huffpostgram #budapest
Ah, Budapest. I’ve been dreaming of the thermal baths, the goulash, and the gorgeous Danube river view. The Longest Haul’s post on visiting Budapest in the winter convinced us to book tickets to this gorgeous city in January.
The Alhambra has always been a distant dream since we lived in America. Now that we’re so close it has quickly made it to the top of our bucket-list. Plus – HilaryStyle’s pictures sold me on making this a priority for a visit in 2017.
Berlin is one of my favorite cities in Europe. But, the hubs has never been so Berlin has made it to the short list! I love reading The Russian Abroad’s posts on Berlin and her food journey through the city is one of my favorites!
I first heard of Carcassonne through Different Shores Blog and #FarawayFiles and was enamored by the beauty of this quaint little town. I couldn’t resist digging up a few more blogs and was quickly convinced by Accooohtrements that Carcassonne was a must-see in France.
Florence and the Cinque Terre
Spoiler alert: We’ve never been to Italy. When I asked my husband where he wanted to go for our 5-year anniversary next year he immediately said Italy. So… we’re headed to Florence, the Cinque Terre, and the small town of Camogli (thanks to Dan Flying Solo’s awesome account of this hidden village) in the spring of next year!
Earlier this year we went hiking with Walk Hike Portugal and we have been dreaming ever since of accompanying them in the Azores. This post from RoarLoud on their visit to the Azores sold us on making sure this is a place we make it to in 2017.

The land of island-hopping, ancient history, and sunshine year-round. We are desperate to take a week-long trip to Greece to visit Athens, Santorini, and Meteora. I love this guide from Two Blue Passport’s on Santorini. And since we love hiking I couldn’t resist drooling over Great Big Globe’s guide to hiking in Santorini.
If you follow our adventures you know that I like to pretend I’m an amazing hiker. So, when I stumbled across The Boys Abroad Sail Croatia review I started researching the different experiences Sail Croatia hosted. Lo and behold – They have a sailing + hiking trip! This is high up on our “must-dos” for next year.
Currently trapped in the office, but daydreaming about these rolling hills with pink kochia bushes and blooming flowers.

I’m on a mission to explore as much of Europe as possible. But, the hubs lived in Japan when he was a kid and he won’t stop talking about it. He suggested I start reading blogs on Japan and sure enough I’m in love. Out of the fifty or so I’ve read in the past month Travel with a Nob’s post on the Hitachi Seaside Park is my favorite. We’ll see what happens next year, but if we can afford a long-haul Japan is at the top of the list!
