Where have I travelled?

My travels so far have been concentrated around North America and Europe, where I have visited 19 countries.


I have been reading so many fascinating adventures from fellow bloggers, that I can’t wait to go further a field. Since starting my blog I have become more driven to tackle my bucket list head on!

    I love lists and should write down the ever-evolving bucket list in my head. You have some great travel ideas! The trans-Siberian railway is on my list too.

    • Sam H Travels

      I was like you, but I needed to write it down it was difficult to remember it all !

  • Those are all wonderful list. I think I am going to do a bucket list of my own as well. It will make me aware what are those things that I already accomplished so far. Good luck on all your dreams. I do believe dreams do come true. πŸ™‚

      I think it’s a good way of keeping me focussed on what I would like to do too. Helps me plan for my future travel trips.

  • So many amazing experiences. I’d love to do the Route 66 road trip and Reindeers in Lapland.

      I hope you get to do them both some day soon πŸ™‚
