As an expat family, we travel a lot and mostly it’s to see family and friends. With both of us having most of our family abroad we don’t venture out on holiday unless it’s to see them or friends we have made a long the way. The world is so full of so many amazing places to visit it’s hard to pick just a few but here is my bucket list of the places I want to visit in the near future for our family holidays.
I have never been to Greece and the pure white buildings look so stunning, off setting that gorgeous blue water. I have plans to do a Greek island cruise with my momma for our next mother / daughter trip but I would love to take my family here for one of our family vacations. I have seen so many beautiful hotels in Greece and so many great places to visit there. I would definitely do a package holiday to Greece as it makes it easier for families traveling with children and includes everything for you so you don’t have to worry. It’s definitely number one on my bucket list for our next big family vacation.
2. Amalfi Coast
This place holds dear to my heart as I researched it and wanted to get married here so badly. If my entire family didn’t have to fly across the world to it rather than just from the UK, I would have got married here along it’s beautiful coastlines. I still want to make the family trip there someday and maybe a fun celebration for our anniversary of what could have been our wedding destination.
Coming from America, we usually honeymoon in places closer like Fiji and Bora Bora and if I had known more about the Maldives I would have choose there. We flew all the way back from Bora Bora which was almost completely around the world after our honeymoon that turned out to be one storm fest after another. I wish we had set our eyes on the Maldives, which was closer to home and probably a better chance of great weather. We definitely are in need of a second honeymoon to make up for the first.
4. Abu dhabi
What’s not to love with the mouth dropping architecture in Abu dhabi. It leaves me truly breathless. The buildings, monuments and places to visit are outstanding. It’s definitely one for shopping too so it had to make my travel bucket list.
I have heard so many great things about Portugal and it’s family friendly vacation hotspots. I would love to take the kids and just play out on the beach with not a care in the world. It’s not far from me so it’s one the kids at their age could handle the flight.
Thailand is such a stunning country. There are so many great beaches, hidden gems and gorgeous waterfalls to seek out. I can just imagine my family rowing along the moss covered rocks to find our special oasis. There is nothing more beautiful than nature here I have been told and I long to see it with my own eyes and share it with my family.
Who doesn’t want to say they have been to Australia? Not you, well my family is originally from there on my father’s side so I would love to go back to my roots and explore. I love researching my family history and where we come from. It would be great to see the places they lived along with so many great tourist attractions too.
As you can see from my bucket list, I am a huge fan of the beach but that doesn’t mean I don’t love a good snowy mountain or two. I have always been a snowboarder but I would love to learn how to ski one day and why not with the kids in Switzerland? Sounds good to me.
I have longed to go to Morocco. Marrakech is always flashing it’s top hotels on the tv and internet making me drool. There is nothing I love more than a gorgeous hotel laid out with pools and amenities galore. The ones where the hotel is the holiday as much as the destination.
You are thinking Lapland, of course she wants to go see Father Christmas… nope, up until I moved the the UK, I said Santa and he lived in the north pole; not some place called Lapland. But Lapland on top of beautiful skiing is famous for it’s light shows. I would love to go and see the green ambers dancing across the sky.
Of course, there are truly a million beautiful places around the world waiting to be discovered, traveled and explored. I could pour over the internet everyday planning various types of holidays and where I want to take the kids. I am so grateful and love being able to share the world and it’s amazing glories with my children.
