Let's all admit it, each one of us has an aching wanderlust inside. The idea of home is truly amazing but to see and discover the wonders on the other side of our usual world is something beyond living.
I was quite hesitant at first to share to you my travel wish list. You know what they say when you share something you dream of, it won't come true? oh boy, that gets me! I always keep it with my bullet journal as I believe a travel list will help me prioritize my dreams. From time to time I check it, dreaming the thousand things I'd love to do as I step on the places I always dream of.
While others might wish to travel with someone, I prefer to travel alone. Not because I'm lonely, I simply believe that solitude is the salt to personhood. That somehow, travelling alone will give me time to think and reflect. While the idea of travelling thrills me, I am bound by certain circumstances ( money,time) but, no need for me to fret because Airbnb helps me complete my #MyAirbnbBucketList. A list I surely love to accomplish before I die!
If it is possible for me to travel the world, then why not, right? Believe me, this list would be endless if I'll write all my dream destination, but here are my top choices:
Before visiting other countries I'd love to savor the treasure in my beloved Philippines. Built by a sugar baron in the early 1990's the mansion met a sad fate when it was burnt by the Filipino guerillas just to keep it from the clutches of the Japanese soldiers during the WWII.
It's historical significance alone made me want to visit the place. I couldn't figure out why but something in me love to witness its magnificence.
Given the opportunity, who wouldn't want to visit Japan? The Land of the Rising Sun or shall I say the land of anime, hello kitty, cherry blossoms, temples and home of the healthiest foods? There are just so many reasons to visit Japan. I guess I should consider travelling to Japan as one of my childhood dreams. I feel like I'm closer to this childhood dream now that the country plans to mull its no visa rule for Filipinos. hehe Just wait Nippon!
From the land of the rising sun, I'll visit the home of the sun God. Just let me ride in those camels and do a jump shot with the pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx behind me and I'm ready to go charot! Seriously, imagine witnessing the only one still in existence of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Isn't it amazing?! Is'nt it life changing? Isn't it? haha
Life isn't complete without love and as the great Possum once said, " love is the driving force behind any experience". I just can't wait to be in love with someone who loves me as much as I love him and then fly with him to Paris! ahhh... Je t' aime Paris <3 I can imagine holding my lover's hands as we walk into the Louvre museum, lock our love to eternity at the bridge of Pont des Arts and kiss each other in front of the Eiffel Tower. C'est la vie!
As much as I love blogging, I also love to hike! How rewarding would it be for me to hike in this 15th century Inca site and rediscover its grandeur? It's geographical location might pose some threats but haha I laugh in the face of dangers! Danger + grandeur for me is real adventure!
Home of the Greek gods and goddesses and my poetry heroes- there is so much brilliancy and beauty in this place. Greece is truly the heaven on earth! One step closer and you'll be in heaven. No poems are enough to describe the beauty of Greece. A week in Santorini would be a transcendental experience for a budding poet like me. I might as well write a never ending ode to Greece once I get there ;)
As you may have notice from my travel wish list, most of the places have historical significance. That's because, YES, I'm obsessed with history! I love studying historical facts and learning about them. After all we wouldn't be here without our glorious history. There are so many things I'd love to do in different places. I'd love to eat, pray, love, and write, but most of all I'd love to travel to live <3
If you real want something bad enough, you have to make an effort to have it right? If you cannot have it, then at least you know that you gave your best shot. In terms of travelling, you can of course save money enough for you to travel or you can avail travel plans by offered by Airbnb. Or you may start by making your own travel bucket wish list also by Airbnb all you have to do is to visit their website.

Browsing their site will help you decide from the travel experiences travel junkies shared all over the world. It's kinda like making your own mix and match outfit pieces!

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”
