5 Places I'd Like to Travel to this Year

Last year, I posted 10 Places I'd Like to Travel to This Year. I only made it to three of them, but I went to some pretty awesome places that weren't on that list...like Lisbon and Dubai.

I fell in love with Lisbon in a way that I've never fallen in love with a city. I would uproot my entire life and move there tomorrow if I could. I also really loved St. Louis and well, who doesn't love Hawaii?

Last year was a good year for travel. I'm hoping 2016 will be even better. In the spirit of knowing I probably won't make it to all of these places this year, here's a list of places I'd really love to travel to this year.

1. London - I was there for 24 hours this summer and it wasn't nearly enough (obviously). I was there by mistake which is why my trip was so short but now, I feel like I need to go back to London. I studied abroad there and it has always felt a little bit like home. I've always missed it but drinking a pint in my favorite pub on the Thames this summer made me miss it so much more.

2. Seattle - I've never been to the Pacific Northwest but my NYC running buddy, Emily, just moved there so I would love to visit!

3. Paris - One of the things on my 30 before 30 list is to take my mom to Paris. She went when she was in high school and his been dying to go back ever since. I would really love to make that trip this year! Preferably in the spring...I've only ever been to Paris in the fall!

4. Asia - I'm dying to travel to Asia. I've been to India and Dubai but I want to travel to Pacific Asia. Specifically, I'd like to go to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam but The Pilot is interested in Japan and Korea. If we do plan an Asia trip this year, we'll have to figure out just where we'll go because I don't think we can do all five of those countries in one trip, but both sets can easily be a trip each. I think I may win out since Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam are less expensive!

5. Lisbon - I've had the itch to go back to Lisbon since the minute I got to the airport to leave. While we were sitting around the airport, I was secretly praying that I wouldn't get a seat on the flight (standby) so that we could have another day in Lisbon. I have never experienced that anywhere. I want to go back to Lisbon and see the rest of Portugal, but really just drill back into Lisbon. I could honestly see myself going back there every year for the rest of my life. Yes, I loved it that much. Lisbon opened my soul.

What's on your travel wish list 2016?
Have you been to any of these places?
