Top 10 Islands/Places I'd like to Visit (Bucket List)
Hello Friends!! Today, I will be doing something fun, different, and interactive on my blog. I don't know about you guys, but I love the Island life. Wearing a bikini, laying on the beach, having a cocktail and looking at the beautiful ocean makes me so happy. So in this post, I will be telling you the top ten islands/places I'd like to visit and I'd like for you to leave a comment below on islands you'd also like to visit and why. Grab yourself a cup of tea, wine, or water and let's Begin.
1. Bora Bora
As you can see from the picture above, Bora Bora is an absolutely gorgeous Island in French Polynesia. I chose Bora Bora as one of my top ten because going to French Polynesia has always been a dream of mine and I basically sit down everyday dreaming of my numerous adventures in Bora Bora; Scuba diving, snorkeling, going on boat and speed boat tours, shark diving, jet skiing, ATV rides, and so much more. I dream of waking up every morning in my water resort, admiring the beautiful view, and taking in GODs works.
2. Samui - Thailand
I would love to visit the country of Thailand very soon. I'd like to visit the capital, Bangkok first before visiting the Ko Samui Island in Thailand. The reason why I chose Thailand as part of my top ten is because it is a rich and beautiful country. I would love to explore all it's tropical beaches, royal palaces, ornate temples and much more.
3. Male - Maldives
I will be honest with you all. The main reason I want to go to the Maldives is because it is BEAUTIFUL!!! Come on!! There is literally nothing ugly about the Maldives. This place has always been a honeymoon/romantic getaway spot to me. I honestly think the reason it gives off that vibe is because it is absolutely beautiful and love is a beautiful thing!! (Yeah! I can be cheesy! Let me live!) I really believe that I can go there for two weeks; sleep, wake up, walk out of my water resort, see the view and go back to bed everyday and be hundred percent satisfied. I do not need anything else to make my trip awesome and that is how much I love the Maldives.
4. Crete - Greece
The first reason I chose Crete is because it is Greece's largest island. I have always loved the country Greece because of its beautiful buildings, culture, language and people. So when I was researching where in Greece I would love to visit first, Crete caught my attention. The island is absolutely beautiful and known for numerous amazing things. I know that I will definitely love exploring the island and learning more about the culture.
5. Bali - Indonesia
Bali is also a top choice for me and this is because of the amazing volcanic mountains, coral reefs, beaches, rice paddies and so much more that it possesses. I see myself going on so many adventures in Bali and I honestly feel that I wouldn't be able to say I've lived life to the fullest without visiting Bali.
6. Saona - Dominican Republic
My love for the Dominican Republic started not so long ago. I have been learning Spanish on the Duolingo app for sometime now and I can safely say that I understand quite a bit of Spanish but I am not fluent yet. I really grew to love Spanish and on this journey to being a fluent speaker, I, one day decided to search for the first spanish speaking country I'd like to visit when I'm fluent and that was when I stumbled upon DR!! I know only two people from the DR and I can confidently say that I am going to love my time there. I love the culture, the people, the language, the music (Come on! who doesn't love Spanish music?) And the picture above is a picture I got of the internet of the beautiful Saona Island in the DR and I would definitely be staying there when I visit. While I was getting ready to write this post, I researched more about the island and I fell in love with the resorts, beaches, and all the other fun things that come with it. The DR is definitely a top 10 for me. BTW: I keep saying The DR because the people I know from there call it DR. I would have never thought to shorten it myself. LOL!
7. Sal - Cape Verde
The first reason I chose Cape Verde is because it is basically home (Where all my Africans at?). I know that Cape Verde will definitely hit home for me. I can tell that I would love the culture, the people, and definitely the music.
The Bahamas is one of the first islands, if not the very first island I'd like to visit with my family (my husband and kids) Anytime I think of going to an island, I usually envision myself going alone with my partner or going on a girls trip with my sisters or girlfriends but for some reason, Bahamas screamed FAMILY to me when I came across it. I really do not know why it screamed family but while researching, I found out that it is kids friendly, and very accommodating of family needs. I literally can't wait to watch the excitement on the faces of my kids when they visit their first Island.
I have always dreamt of visiting the beautiful country of Cuba. The first thing that birthed my love for Cuba were the pastel houses in the country's capital, Havana. I have seen a lot of pictures of the houses and I am always mind blown. I just want to experience it myself; I want to take pictures in the middle of the streets, in front of all the beautiful colored buildings, and I want to experience the culture . I just love a country filled with color!!! I personally associate color with love, joy, peace, and unity. And that really stood out for me when I picked this country as one of my top ten places. I will also like to visit the island of Cayo Coco in Cuba while I'm there. I would tell you why I want to visit the island but I think my love for islands has been already discussed so why say the same thing again. Island life is something I think everyone should experience. It's absolutely pure and surreal.
10. Sri Lanka
Lastly, Sri Lanka made it to my top ten list not too long ago and the reason why I chose this country is because I personally think that this country is so rich. Rich in culture, nature, wild life, agriculture, and so much more. I think Sri Lanka is literally a wonder from GOD. The place is booming with everything I love and I couldn't be more amazed than I already am. I did most of my research on Sri Lanka on this website http://srilanka.travel/index.php?route=common/home and the reason I decided to put that link for you is because I really think you need to see it to understand what I'm talking about. I can not leave this earth without visiting Sri Lanka. I honestly believe that it will be a life changing experience for me and I cannot wait to visit.
