Gypsy*Friday - Travel Wishlist

It's been a while since I had a real full blown vacation on a far away place, so my passport is kinda begging me to use it again. I have been looking into some travel options and hopefully I'll be able to satisfy my milage cravings soon with one of these three destinations from my toplist:

Such a traveler's must and yet I've never been there! I wanna do all the touristy things, take all the cliche pictures and eat all the amazing cupcakes, hotdogs and nouvelle cuisine.... not to mention all the museums, bloggers, shops, neighbourhoods I just need to see for myself.  If I say I'm dying to go I'm very shy about my feelings! I'm absolutely DYING TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!


Barcelona is only the silver medalist on my wishlist behind NYC because I've already been there. Some hardcore, veteran Gypsy*Diaries readers might remember the times when I was planning to move there! Now it all seems so far away and I'm quite happy staying where I am, but oh Barcelona... I need to back there rather sooner than later!

The absolute wonder of the Mediterranean Sea, the status quo of the Dolce Vita, Cinque Terre is one of the most breathtaking places on Earth and I've been dying to visit for some time now. Rumor has it Nicolette is organising a little Photography Gateway to Cinque Terre next year and that will absolutely have to be a trip I cannot miss!

What's on top of your travel wishlist darlings? :)
Have a wonderful weekend and keep on dreaming...!

Nicole Lisa said...

I would love to go to:
- Portland Oregon (used to live there and miss it)
- Brisbane (I hear it is amazing and their summer is just starting)
- London (I found sooo many new shops that just opened, and I need my shopping fix soon)
but in reality I am stuck here at home (DK), trying to study for my upcoming exams.
Sigh, life oh life, where will you take me next?
Have a great weekend :o)

I would definitely add those to my list. But right now my top 3 list are:
1. Bhutan - tiny little remote country in the Himalayas
2. Peru - always been captivated by Machu Pinchu and Peruvian culture
3. India - So many bright, vivid and wonderful colours, sights and people.

cinque terre is amazing. i went there with my boyfriend and family last thanksgiving and loved it. the hiking is no joke, but the views are totally worth it. and barcelona is incredible as well. a city full of so much energy and art. it's wonderful! my dream destination these days is greece. one day i'll get there.

thanks for stopping by my blog! i love yours!

Stephanie said...

Wow, seeing NYC on everyone's list reminds me not to take for granted the fact that I live just over an hour away and can go there pretty much whenever I want. In fact, going there tomorrow to meet up with some friends and see my husband do some stand-up comedy!

Sadly, I'm not much of a traveler and have never been outside the US... but Oxford University does this 2-week history of libraries seminar every spring, and I would LOVE to go to that one year. :-)

Jenny said...

ahh, what in NYC earlier this year, I do love it! (Here's a link to my NY blog entry - http://jennyinohio.blogspot.com/2010/05/few-notes-on-new-york-fashion.html )

I definitely want to go to Ireland sometime...I've heard it's beautiful.

*Simply Colette* said...

Oh thank you sweetie! :) I've been craving a NYC girls weekend trip for shopping and photos. Maybe we can meet up! The BF and I took pics at Magnolia bakery a couple years ago! A few on my list besides the getaways are: Greek islands, Croatia, Norway, and Peru.

3. Philippines. because my boyfriend is Filipino and it's our dream to visit it together.
4. the rest of the world. because, well, why not?

Vikki said...

You should definitely go to Cinque Terre, it's one of the most beautiful places in the world. But I recommend you also go to Portofino!!

I went to Cinque Terre when I was studying in Italy and it was just magical! If you can, I recommend taking the train from town to town and staying in each one. If you're into it, pack some hiking boots- the trails up the mountains are breathtaking!

Cinque Terre IS breath-takingly beautiful. It's so hard to choose where to go, but I would really like to go to Scotland, Morocco.. and back to Italy :)

There are soo many places I'd love to visit. I too love barcelona, it has amazing shops and some beautiful architecture, I'd quite happily live there is I could speak anything but English :)
I would love to visit Portofino again, I had a trip there on a cruise a few years back and it took my breath away (and sailed past the Beckhams which was another highlight haha)
I need to find someone who wants to send me travelling across the world hehe :) x

Helena from BrooklynBlonde said...

Dying to go to so many places but next on the list is Paris and Spain!

TLC_Designs said...

Just found your blog today - wow I have been missing out! Love your posts, especially the ones on travel (I'm a travel FREAK myself...and just started a new blog about it all too). I recently visited Positano on the Amalfi Coast in Italy, and it looks very similar to Cinque Terre (ie: breathtaking!).

I look forward to stopping by your blog often. Keep up the great work, girl!

The New York, Barcelona, and Cinque Terre all three are lovely places to fulfill travel desires. They all possess charm and fascination for travelers.

The New York is famous for its modern stylish architecture and buildings with colorful nightlife and plenty of restaurants.
