Post Covid-19 Travel Bucketlist!

Hey y’all! Welcome back! During my spare time at home I’ve been reading a lot of other blogs. I can’t help but notice the trend of Post Covid-19 bucket lists. So I thought I would do my own spin on it and share with you all the different places I want to visit after this is all over. Before I continue I would just like to say I am very grateful to have been able to visit many other countries and this is by no means me complaining. I hope you enjoy this post!


Despite many other trips I have never been to the U.S, although I’d love to. In fact we were planning on possibly going next year but that won’t happen now so I can just add it to my list of places I want to visit after the pandemic. Although I would love to see all of the U.S I do have some places in particular that I would really love to go! For example California, New York, Alaska, Hawaii and Texas are all on the top of my list for different reasons and I would jump at the chance to see them!

Bora Bora

Another place on the top of my bucket list is Bora Bora. The beautiful French Polynesian island is located in the South Pacific, and practically screams stereotypical summer vacations. If you’ve never been to or heard of Bora Bora that pretty much sums it up. I would love to go there and relax on the beaches or dine on the huts above the water. Bora Bora is such a summery tropical place it just had to be on my list.


Another summery and tropical place I would love to visit is the Caribbean. For almost the same reasons I love the idea of a beautiful summer vacation filled with swimming, food and natural beauty. I also love the countries/places that still have culture and heritage to immerse yourself in. I would love to do a holiday that incorporated going to all the cultural and heritage sights as well as swimming and lounging around.


I know your probably sick of all these tropical destinations and are probably thinking that this girl has a island summer vacation problem. Honestly I probably do but looking at some of these amazing places I’m pretty sure I’m not alone! Looking at pictures I think Bali looks amazing! I would love to poke around local markets or go to visit the Monkey Forest (I’ve been told of their cheeky behaviours) I think it would make an unforgettable and enjoyable experience.


To be quite honest I’ve wanted to go to Spain for a little while now. I even tried to teach myself Spanish last year (I can vaguely remember a couple of phrases!) Nevertheless I’ve always been intrigued by the Spanish people and their culture. I would love to go to Spain and at the moment it is probably on top of my bucket list. Considering it my be a while since I get to go I might have to pick up my Spanish books again!


The way I found out about Argentina was a little unusual. It was actually through a Netflix documentary about hockey great Luciana Aymar and the Argentinian team the lioness’ (side note great documentary highly recommend) anyways I instantly loved the architecture and people of the South American country. Maybe it’s because I’d get to use my Spanish? Not that I know much currently 😂! Anyways I’d love to go to Argentina and couldn’t resist adding it to this list.


I would love to go to Canada! A lot of my friends and family have gone to Canada and I’ve heard so many positive things about it! I also think It could produce some killer photos! Canada is known for its amazing wildlife and I honestly would go to see just that and Canada is also home of bacon and maple syrup so I think I have multiple reasons to visit! I also would love to wander the streets of Vancouver and see what I can find!


Tokyo is the capital of Japan and the tech centre of the world! I would love to wander the streets of Tokyo with amazing festivals and beautiful lights. Tokyo is a very modern city in a culturally rich and unique country. I’m pretty sure if I went to Tokyo I would definitely make an effort to go to more of the heritage sort of sights! I would love to go to Japan and experience some of the cultural things it has to offer as the Japanese traditions and temples are quite unique, amazing and easily as beautiful as the modern day cities.

Thanks for reading until the end I hope you enjoyed this post! There are so many amazing places in the world waiting to be discovered! This is just my personal bucket list of places I’d love to go. I must admit it was hard narrowing down on my list so it didn’t take you guys hours to read! I hope you enjoyed this post, have an awesome day and keep smiling!

Hey there! This travel post is all about the Republic of Ireland. On my trip I travelled the South Island loop (Dublin-Cork-Galway-Limerick) with a few stops along the way.


The capital of Ireland definitely has lots to do! Including Dublin Castle and the Guinness Storehouse but my favourite was the classic Irish pubs in and around the city. With traditional music singing and dance it’s a great experience. Plus the Irish are so merry and friendly it’s impossible not to smile.


During my trip I stayed in Cork and although the city itself wasn’t my favourite there are many things to do on day trips out of Cork. For example Blarney Castle and Gardens home of the famous Blarney Stone. The Castle isn’t anything out of the ordinary but the gardens around it are absolutely beautiful and could make excellent photo opportunities.


Galway was my personal favourite city we visited on our trip tp Ireland literally just because of the super cute markets and atmosphere of the whole town. Besides the town itself one of my favourite it places was the Cliffs Of Moher. They were beautiful and there was even some highland cattle 😂. Apart from that the view was gorgeous it was even worth almost blowing off the edge with how strong the wind was! We also visited Aillwee Cave which was certainly out of my comfort zone but I don’t regret it. It was a great experience for a first time caver.


I didn’t do much in Killarney as it was just a stop on our way back to Dublin. But we did go to Killarney national park (which was beautiful) and got into a horse and carriage that went around the base of the mountain. It was quite nice to have a change of scenery from the back of the car. Our horse took us through the scenic route and back to our car. Although I didn’t see much of the town from what I saw of it it looked really nice.


Same sort of thing here. We only stopped here for a couple hours to poke around the streets. We visited Kilkenny castle which was a reasonable size with a lot of antique paintings and old furniture.

That’s all for today I hope you found this post useful/informative. Have a great day! – Sophie

Welcome back! This post is all about the beautiful Scotland. Home of one of my personal favourite animals the highland cow. But of course there’s so much more to love about Scotland.


The Scottish capital is home to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and Arthur’s seat. The city itself is in the shadow of Edinburgh castle quite literally. The castle is several hundred metres above the ground and welcomes roughly 1.7 million visitors a year. The castle is well restored and has many exhibits that show case the brutal history of the city. Arthur’s seat is another landmark is Edinburgh it is a small mountain that ascends over the city and gives a great view. It is a relatively easy hike to the top perfect for first timers!

Inverness and The Highlands

Inverness is the ideal place to stay to explore The Great Scottish Highlands, as it is close enough that you can easily go out and explore on day trips and modern enough you can still enjoy small luxuries such as bubble baths and breakfast buffets. Some day trip ideas may include – Fort Augustus, Fort William, Foyer Falls, Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle and Culloden battlefield. It is a central point to a lot of great landmarks and exciting adventures.

Keep smiling! – Sophie

Hey, and welcome to this fortnight’s post!! I’m sooo excited for this one. I just recently travelled to Paris and let me tell you it is my favourite place in the world!! Soon you’ll see why! This post is all about the incredible food, architecture and culture that the city has to offer!!


Paris has it all !! (Including a great taste in fashion!) Even the stores themselves are antique, rich and beautiful. The best and probably most famous places to go shopping in Paris are Galleries Lafayette and Champs Élysées they’re really nice. Apart from the fashion aspect of their culture they live in complete luxury everything is edged with gold and marble it’s so pretty. Paris is also known for its art mainly the Louvre. The Louvre is the home of possibly the most famous painting to ever exist! The Mona Lisa.


The food in France in general is mouth watering. I mean you think the pastries in your town are good I can just about guarantee that the French do it x10 better!! I don’t remember the names of the cafes we stopped at probably because we just wandered. But everywhere we went we never came across anything bad. To be honest they smell so good you could tell you wanted to eat there, as soon as you walked through the door.


Paris is an architectural masterpiece. All the major monuments all line up and the whole city was deliberately designed and perfectly planned! Even the roads are organised in an orderly fashion. It’s insane! Especially for a city that’s hundreds of years old. Also the statues and building are all trimmed with gold!! (Because being made out of marble isn’t enough). It is a city of absolute luxury!!

My Favourite Places

  • Eiffel Tower
  • Louvre
  • Arch de Triumphe
  • Arch de Carrousel
  • Champs Élysées
  • Grand Palais
  • Trocadero
  • Seine River

Thanks for reading I hope you enjoyed the read!! Have a great day! -xoSophiexo-

My Trip to New South Wales

”Don’t worry about the world ending today because it’s already tomorrow in Australia”

~Charles M Schulz

Hey! I’ve Been all over the place in Australia it’s one of my favourite countries! But because it’s so big I can’t fit it all into one post so today I’m just doing New South Wales!! ( Please note there are a million cool places to go these are just my favourites!)


Dubbo is a great place to stay! It’s your classic rural town with a bit more to offer, it’s got the best zoo I’ve ever seen! It’s a massive open inclosure zoo, which means up close interactions, tonnes of happy animals and hard core cardio!!

Kangaroo Valley

The Kangaroo Valley is your perfect weekend away! Full of rich country side and delicious food there’s no better place! You can go hiking through the Australian bush and maybe even catch a glimpse of a wild kangaroo, koala or wombat!!

Byron Bay

Ok, so this one just makes it in, because it almost on the border between New South Wales and Queensland! But it’s too good to leave out. It could also possibly be the best beach in Australia! Byron Bay is a seriously good photo spot and is absolutely stunning.

Central Coast

The Central Coast is sooooo pretty! It’s an array of cute little towns based on the edge of the water! It has the cutest little beaches all along the coast from Hawkesbury to Lake Macquarie it is not a place to miss!!!

Sydney City

For first time Aussie tourists i still 110% recommend all the major land marks they’re awesome!! But my favourite thing to do is just go to the harbour for the day! Exploring the markets food and music on offer!!

Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains are such an amazing unique Aussie landmark! There’s nowhere quite like it! So pack you bags and prepare yourself for the full Australian emersion!! If that isn’t for you checkout the Springwood markets! They’re super cute and all small, local businesses!! It’s a must see destination for any tourist!!!

The Northern Beaches

These beaches (and the whole area) are ultimate luxury!! Especially Manly! Manly is my go to place to hang in the summer!! Pro tip if you want less hectic go to Shelly Beach!! It’s a smaller beach to the side but it’s just as good!

I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as i enjoyed writing it!! But some of these places listed are really struggling in the post drought and bushfire crisis. If you’re interested in travelling to some of these local towns they could really use the support.

Thanks for reading! I hope it was time well spent!!:)-Sophie
