The top five destinations on my travel bucket list

As a self-acclaimed travel addict with a travel bucket list that practically includes every country in the world, it was a real struggle to cut the list down to my top five. Ask me the same question tomorrow and the answer may be slightly different. But here they are, the top five destinations (at the moment) on my travel bucket list:



The Maldives

Cliche maybe, but seriously, who could say no to those gorgeous white sand beaches and clear blue seas!? I’m so ready and excited to stay in one of those cute little bungalows and also to be able to go dolphin watching and scuba diving! However due to a shortage in funds for extortionate holiday prices, I will unfortunately not be visiting the Maldives anytime soon lol. I have however decided that this will be my honeymoon destination. Now I just need to learn how to swim… oh and find a husband! 🙈😂

I am British, but I am also of Nigerian descent. When you are brought up with two very different cultures, there is nothing better than being able to learn more about and fully immerse yourself in the culture of your motherland.

Unfortunately I have only visited Nigeria once and this was over ten years ago. Now as an adult, this something I am eager to change. I want to experience the beauty of both Nigeria and Africa and to share it with you all! Nigeria has so much to offer in architecture (the houses in Nigeria are amazing! 😍) art, fashion, history and natural wonders; just to name a few.




This beautiful picture is of the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. The first time I saw this picture, I knew I needed to see this in person. The architecture in Singapore is simply amazing; and don’t get me started about the food! I am a foodie and I am not ashamed to admit. One of the best parts of travelling is being able to try new foods from all over the world; I am currently obsessed with Malaysian and Korean food. I haven’t had much exposure to Singaporean food, so what better way to experience it than getting the real deal in the country itself!?



Santorini, Greece

Santorini has been on my top ten list for quite a while now. Just look at those beautiful whitewashed houses lining the cliff tops. There has to be at least one picture of Santorini on my Instagram feed everyday. I’m tired of just seeing the pictures; I want to experience it myself, to make my own memories and take my own pictures.

Should I be cliche and go for the all white outfit, or should I step out of the box and try something different? Decisions, decisions lol.



The Philippines

Palawan, Philippines is another destination that has been blowing up on my Instagram feed lately. Just look at this picture, and you can see why. My Filipino friend Zsharmaine promised to take me to the Philippines this December, but unfortunately our plans fell through. I Guess I’ll just have to wait till next year… *hint hint* 😉.
So those are my top five destinations on my travel bucket list!

Have you been to any of the destinations on my list? What are your top five destinations? Let me know in the comments! 😊

  1. I love this list!!! The maldives and phillipines are definitely on my list as well, I’m hoping to go next year! I have already been to Greece, but after reading this post I am now adding Singapore to my list!!

    1. Thank you! I look forward to hearing about your experiences when you go! I’ve been to an island in Greece called Rhodes, but I really also want to go to Santorini and Athens. Where in Greece did you go?

      1. I’ve never heard of rhodes I’ll have to look into that! But I was in Greece for almost a month and we went to Athens, Meteora, Nafplio (my favorite), Andros Island, Pikermi, & Corinth. I loved Greece! The beaches are so perfect

      2. Ohh wow you did quite a bit of Greece. There are so many Greek islands, but I’ll definitely check out the ones you mentioned. And yes, the beaches there are amazing!

  2. I love that you included Nigeria! It’s one of those countries that nobody ever mentions and I think that’s so sad.
    I love the rest of the places on your list, too, but it became really interesting the moment I saw Nigeria on there.

    1. Thank you! Yes unfortunately there are a lot of countries, Nigeria included, that are rarely considered by travellers. I really hope to visit more of these countries too and show people what they have to offer. 🙂
