Bit by the travel bug and realized there’s no turning back? Welcome to the club of individuals who shed a tear of longing at the sight of a plane, train, or even a bus, imagining where it might take us. Escapism this is not. Its just an extreme urge to experience life in all its glorious possibilities.
Although I’ve been tremendously blessed with the chance to visit many of the places on my bucket list, the list will never stop growing. With that being said, here are some of the places I dream of visiting in the near future.
Morocco. A country with a fascinating reputation and hard to match on the exotic meter, Morocco has been drawing travelers to its fabled beach and mountain towns for centuries. Cities like Marrakech, Casablanca, and Fez, have always had a magnetic appeal that ignited my curiosity. I’m not alone. Is it the food? The atmosphere? The thrill of encountering an unknown culture? Probably a combination of all of those things and more.
India. Who hasn’t at some point been drawn to this enormous, mysterious and diverse country? From the seaside resort town of Goa to the mystical city of Varanasi, one would need a few years to really explore the dozens of must-see places in India.
Israel. Whether its a spiritual pilgrimage you have in mind or just the chance to explore idyllic beaches and some of most historical sites on earth, Israel’s got you covered.
France. I’m really drawn to Provence and to the island of Corsica. Sorry Paris, you take a back seat to those two. Although I suppose I’ll have to land there, so there wouldn’t be harm in exploring it for at least a day going in, and a day before departure. Sounds like a plan.
Back to Egypt. There’s no way 1 trip to Egypt can do justice to all that country has to offer unless you have unlimited time. I still have to visit the Red Sea. Specifically, El Gouna. So there you go. My dream destinations. I’ll be writing a more detailed post for each place soon so stay tuned! Happy travels.
