My travel bucket list (well, some of it anyway)

I think a lot of people have travel bucket lists, whether they are physically written down on a piece of paper, written in the notes section of your phone or bouncing around in your mind - there's just certain places that scream out more than others. For someone like me, who literally wants to go everywhere, it's hard to come up with a definite travel bucket list. I mean, I just want to go everywhere before I die, is that too much to ask?

Whale Watching in Iceland
Over the last year I have become more and more fascinated by Iceland. The pictures of the vast landscapes have won me over and I am heading there in November to cruise around for 5 or 6 days. While I am there, I am going whale watching. I can imagine now how bloody cold it is going to be, but it will be such a contrast to the type of whale watching I am used to in Australia. If I see an Orca I am officially going to be the happiest girl in the world.

Teach English in Asia
This is a new dream of mine that has been brewing for about 6 months or so. Every time I have visited Asia in the past I have left feeling a pull to go back for more. I am really fascinated by the culture and would love the challenge of living and teaching English there. Where specifically in Asia, I'm not 100% sure, but I am leaning towards China at this stage. If you have any experience with this, I would love to hear about it. 

Get a train from St. Petersburg to Beijing
This is just the coolest thing ever. Who wouldn't want to do this? The train through Russia is quite pricey, so I don't expect it is something I will be able to afford to do in the next couple of years, but one day - I am going to get on that bad boy and probably swear off train travel for the rest of my life afterwards.

Do WWOOFing in Turkey
WWOOF stands for World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms and this is something I have been looking into for the past few months. Basically, you volunteer to work on a farm and receive free room and board for slaving away for 12 hours a day. I'm not sure how much I would love this, but it's something that just keeps lingering around in my mind, so I feel like I need to give it a go. It's all about the adventure, right?

Visit Uluru
This is something a bit closer to home. Australia is a massive country and I have not yet had the opportunity to visit one of it's natural wonders. I mean, it's a giant rock in the middle of the outback, but god damn I think it would be wonderful to see.

I don't think any travel dream is too big or too small. If you want to do something badly enough, there shouldn't really be anything standing in your way. Work your arse off and make it happen. I really think that I will experience all of this and more, I mean, I wrote it on my blog - I have to do it now.

What's on your travel bucket list?
This is my last week of co-hosting #TravelTuesday! I've had a great (and envious) time reading about all sorts of brilliant adventures and it always inspires me to travel even more. Every week, Bonnie, Kaelene, Van, and I have picked our favourite post from the previous week. So, for the last time, my favourite post was from Camila over at The Things I Am Crazy For. Her post on the time she looked for Tom Hanks in Scotland was a great reminder on the importance of going with the flow and having a laugh.
