Bucket Listing with Kids.

I have always dreamt of traveling extensively after marriage but God had other plans for me and I got pregnant right after. There were days when I craved to go somewhere away from gloomy London and that's when I decided to make a bucket list of all the places that I wanted to visit and no matter what and no matter how many children, I will make sure that I visit these places. You can also check out Destination2 Luxury Holidays for creating the perfect holiday experience.

So here are my top five bucket list destination places that I would like to visit over the next two years. Mostly in 2018 only but obviously, life always has other plans.

1. Bali. 

Indonesia has to be one of the top places that I would like to visit this year. My son is old enough to do certain activities rather than just lounge on the beach all day. Bali has a premier water park where you can spend all day doing all sorts of water activities. There is Kemenuh Butterfly park which I know will be a major hit with my son since he loves all kinds of bugs/insects and butterflies are his favourite. Animal Safari, Surfing, and Rafting are also on our list of things to do while in Bali. Also, you haven't visited Bali properly if you haven't been to the Monkey Forest.

2. Capetown.

I remember when I was 6 and my dad had to visit South Africa for official work. a 2-week stay turned into a whole month and when he came back, he couldn't stop raving about Capetown and since then, I always googled pictures of Capetown hoping one day I will be able to finally go there. My father raved about the views from the Table Mountain and that is one place that I would definitely like to go and take my son along. Other than that, Penguin Boulder, Two Oceans Aquarium and Imhoff farm are also on the list!

3. Amsterdam. 

I think visiting Amsterdam is on everyone's bucket list. My husband has been there twice and I have seen countless movies featuring Amsterdam and now I really really need to go! Hopefully, this year will be the year when we do visit Amsterdam since it is on one of the routes of the places we have planned to visit. One of the first things that I want to go once I visit here is to rent a bakfied and explore Amsterdam like a local. Visit Nine Streets and see the world go by. Although not exactly a child entertaining place but Anne Frank's house is definitely on my list!

4. Copenhagen. 

Of all the reading and research I have done on Denmark, I have read that it is one place that will keep surprising you in a good way. I have read so much about playgrounds in Copenhagen. The Vikings didn't mess around and people have actually recommended me to visit a playground. I laughed out loud when they recommended this but when I actually got to reading about it, they were bloody serious about it. And I really really want to try out authentic Danish cookies after having all sorts of Danish cookie tins all my life! And obviously, visit The Mermaid!

5. Costa Rica. 

This is last on my bucket list but definitely my favourite. Its one of those places where you can get dirty and have fun while vacationing without worrying about doing all the fancy things in life. Snorkelling with my son is on the top, Wildlife boat trip, Hot springs, Volcanoes, the frog pond, Sky adventures and glamping on remote beaches are my ideal vacation adventures in Costa Rica.

What are your bucket list items for 2018?
