As we pack, plan and generally live in chaos getting ready for our next trip, I realized that I am about to check two MAJOR  things off my Travel Bucket list this upcoming trip that we are taking.

Major. Like, I've been waiting  my whole life kinda major.

Visiting New Orleans and taking a Disney cruise have been on my list forever. Now, that bucket list hasn't ever been written out, I just know what's in my head. Those two have been top of the list for as long as I can remember and Mike knows how much I've yearned for both since the day we were married, about 13 years ago.

I am so gosh darn excited and so unbelievably lucky to be going on this fantastic trip in about two weeks.


Since I've never written out my Bucket List, I've decided it's high time I did and where else would I write it out but here, on my website.

I will be making this a permanent page on my website that can be clicked on and checked to see if I am getting anywhere else on it 😉 but for now, let's just make it a post.



So, what's on YOUR bucket list? Do you share any of the same places or activities? I am sure that this list will change and I assure you, there are many more places that I want to visit that will make their way on there. Trying to list them all at once was a hard endeavour, some I know by heart and dream about daily but some I have only had fleeting thoughts about every once in a while.

Oh, and start packing those virtual suitcases.

I'm taking you on a Disney cruise AND to New Orleans this winter!

    Every time I cross a place off my bucket list I add one more!  New Orleans is great!

  2. Love your list. I have had the Maritimes on mine for many years and plan to go next year. I want to see more of my own country! The Netherlands is another – ever since a project I did on tulips in grade 4.

      @Cheryl When you start to think about our own country, there are TONS of amazing places that people from all over the world come to visit! The Bay of Fundy, Green Gables, Churchill and the polar bears, so many places that require no passport and a car if you’re so inclined!

      @Cheryl As a current resident of Halifax (transplanted from Ontario), I feel the need to say YES COME HERE COME QUICKLY!!!

      All the things you have heard are true! The friendliness!1 People call you “Love”! (BANK TELLERS call you “love”’s hilarious!)  Cars wait for you to cross the read…even if there’s no crosswalk in sight.

      There are jam nights and people sing maritime music in bars! There is a Busker festival with crazy stuff…and ukulele’s! And the ocean! And the place where L.M. Montgomery went to university…and where “Anne of the Island” takes place! You know the Gazebo where she met Roy?I’ve been there! That cemetery that people used as a park? That’s actually a thing! And they do!

      The Maritimes are exactly all they are cracked up to be…and don’t get me started on Cape Breton!

    I love your list! I think mine would be very similar lol. I have wanted to visit New Orleans my whole life!! Just the whole vibe down there, the food, the jazz, the celebration of life, I love it! I have to start writing down my own travel bucket list!

    Good food, exotic skylines, friendly people, spice markets. Istanbul was the most interesting place I visited in Europe.

    • thekitchenmagpie Reply

      @Tara Zieminek Hmm, ok , I can see that! The spice markets are world famous, those would be something to see!

    Now THAT”s one out of the blue, for me. Why Turkey?

    • thekitchenmagpie Reply

      @Lori Skelding And now I have no one to visit there! Sheesh.

      @Ida Pence Waterous Oh the Galapagos….what an adventure that would be!

    How could I forget about Ireland??!! Too much pressure trying to do it all at once lol! And Salem…that would be amazing too! I’m big on historical places…

      @Jennifer Print Banff is spectacular and shouldn’t be missed, that’s for sure! Prague, eh? Funny which cities just capture our attention and draw us to them…
