So, onto my 3 bucket list destinations:
1. Blue Lagoon, Iceland - As long as I can remember, I've wanted to visit Iceland and take a dip in The Blue Lagoon. It's one of the 25 wonders of the world and is made up of geothermal water that springs from 2000 metres below the Earth's surface. It's completely natural and the water is always heated at 37 degrees, so rather like a natural bath. The blue hue of the water comes from the minerals in it, as well as the reflection from the sun, but the colour of the water is actually white like milk! I think it would be incredible to appreciate nature at its finest somewhere like this.
2. St Petersburg, Russia - I remember my dad taking two friends and I to see Anastasia back in 1997, and that was it. I wanted to be singing 'Rumour in St Petersburg' for real. The architecture and history has been something I've read about for years now, and to see the Winter Palace in the flesh would just be something incredible. I also studied Russian history when I was at school and the fall of the Tsar and the Romanov family has kept me fascinated.
3. Montenegro - Lots of people don't even know where Montenegro is, but it's somewhere that's been on my travel bucket list for years. My aunty and uncle have been there a good few times and have said the scenery is just outstanding. There's some beautiful lakes, beaches and cities, and is a true gem in Eastern Europe. My favourite 007 visits Montenegro in Casino Royale, so that's a good enough reason for me to visit!
Hopefully I will get to tick these places off my bucket list over the next couple of years. Which countries or cities do you have on your bucket list? Do you have any recommendations that I should add to mine?
