Places ticked off my bucket list

pins on a map

Travelling has always been a major passion of mine.  Unfortunately depression makes it rather hard to feel passionate about much of anything, but in an attempt to get myself a bit more excited about my upcoming trip to Italy I thought I’d do a post covering the places I’ve managed to tick off my list thus far.

North America:

  • Mexico
  • United States

Europe:

  • Austria – my friend and I wanted to visit Mozart’s grave, but after walking there in the pouring rain the cemetery gate was locked
  • Czech Republic
  • England – I didn’t get outside of London, and will definitely need to go back
  • France – one of my all time favourites
  • Germany – only visited Munich, so this is another country to return to
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Netherlands
  • Poland
  • Romania – Where else can you dance the night away at the Dracula Disco?
  • Russia – I was depressed during this trip, so didn’t really get to enjoy it.  In selfies I took my face is gaunt because I had lost so much weight due to illness.
  • Slovakia
  • Switzerland – the organization nut in me loved that all of the clocks were synchronized and trains arrived on time to the minute

Asia:

  • Cambodia
  • India – I enjoyed it despite having raging diarrhea much of the time I was there
  • Israel
  • Japan – I visit here on a school exchange trip when I was 14.  The flight was hideous because back in the day people used to be able to smoke in planes.
  • Jordan
  • Kazakhstan
  • Kyrgyzstan – This is where I got to camp in a yurt (2 yurts, to be exact).
  • Laos
  • Thailand
  • Turkey
  • Uzbekistan
  • Vietnam – As a solo white female traveller, I really stood out and acted like a magnet for chatty locals.

South America and Caribbean

  • Argentina – Alas I was too sick (thanks to Bolivia) to enjoy the famous steaks
  • Bolivia
  • Brazil – One hotel my mom and I stayed in had a porn channel on the tv and mirrors at various angles around the bed.  Classy all the way.
  • Cuba
  • Peru

Africa:

  • Egypt – There was so much sexual harassment from yucky Egyptian men
  • Kenya
  • Tanzania

 

Do you enjoy travelling?  Where are some of the place that you’ve visited?

    Oh wow this list is amazing! I would LOVE to travel more but I get horrific panic attacks with flying – I am getting slightly better but it’s really hard for me. The next time I step foot on a plane I’ve decided I’m going to Rome (wish me luck lol) really great post! x

    Wow, you are quite the globetrotter!! 😮 Awesomeness!

    I’ve only been here in the US, but I’ve been to Florida, Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Colorado, Wyoming (but I was three years old–does that count?), and Kansas. Oh! Ohio. I’ve never been further north than Ohio nor further west than Colorado (except that time when I was three).

    But wow! You’ve been all over! And you’re going to Italy soon, when I’m going to Prague? PARTY!!

    Wholly Cow! You’ve been just about everywhere! I am so envious. I’ve only been to Montreal, Canada., Whole East coast of the USA, Colorado, and Ireland for a blip…meaning it was for a Concert Choir competition only, and back on the plane. Which was an absolute bummer.
    I so can’t wait for you to visit Italy. I want plenty of pictures from you!!!

    Wow omg that list is amazing! I wish I have travelled that much. I travelled a lot through Europe. You still need to go to Spain haha ✌️ The place most far away where I went was NYC. I loved it. I wish to go to Sweden, Africa, Aruba, Australia, California, México, Brasil, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and many more.

    That’s amazing. You have traveled so many places. I wish, my list also grows just like that. So, far I have been to India (Native :-p) and Japan (settled for job). But I keep travelling within Japan. So far, I had wonderful experiences in Japan – convenient transport, beautiful weather, breathtaking scenery and helpful people. So read on my blog about my travel stories in Japan
