There are quite a few places I want to go before I die, my travel bucket list if you may. Being half Italian makes Italy a must and I would love to go back to Spain some day. Two other places I would love to be able to see and explore, hopefully within the next 5 years, are Paris, France and London, England.
I’ve always been very interested in France since taking French in high school. I want to go stand under the Arc De’ Triomphe, walk along the Siene, indulge in both the Musée d’Orsay and The Louvre, and end the day looking over Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower. I want to wake up and have a croissant, pain au chocolat, and cafe while taking in everything about the city of love.
I would love to spend several days exploring everything Paris has to offer before hopping on the channel tunnel and heading to London. Taking in the must sees like Big Ben, hang with William & Kate (okay so their wax counterparts) at Madam Tussuads, riding on the London Eye, and exploring one of the many museums are on my to do list. The foodie in me is ready to explore popular foods like banger & mash, yorkshire pudding, and of course fish and chips. Not to mention the Harry Potter fan in me just has to go where the movie is based out of. Which means the Harry Potter tour of course.
Most people would rather go to a tropical island for their travel bucket list and while that is on the list, it won’t be before I head to Paris and London. Both London and France are full of activities to do that they are both a great place for the whole family to experience. I think we will start making the strides to get there sooner rather than later.
Have you ever been to London or Paris? What is on your travel bucket list?
