5 Dream Destinations: {Guest Post}

October 22, 2013
Hi guys! Lisa here.  Before Courtney takes over, I wanted to let you know that I also posted about five of my dream destinations on Courtney's blog.  Check out the post here.  We will be linking up both posts with Bonnie @ A Compass Rose for Travel Tuesday.

Hope you all enjoy reading about Courtney's travel picks...I know I did.  :)

'We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment.'

Hi everyone! I'm Courtney, the twenty-something behind the blog, Passionately Curious and real-life friend of Lisa's. I'm super excited to be posting on her blog today! We decided we wanted to swap posts and share our 5 Dream Destinations for future travels. We both have a love for travel, as she has traveled a lot herself and I studied abroad just this year. 

Traveling abroad really does give you the travel bug. When I got back from my travels in Spain and Europe, Lisa and I couldn't stop talking about all of the other places we wanted to visit. She told me about the places she visited in Europe, Asia, and Africa and the places she really wants to visit in the future. Now, is our chance to gush and share with all of you our 5 places we hope to visit.

Tuscany, Italy

I did visit Rome and Venice, Italy while I was abroad, but I never had the chance to visit one of the most beautiful cities there, Tuscany. It seems like such a warm, peaceful city. I hope I have the chance to one day go back to Italy and visit Tuscany.

Barcelona, Spain


Yes, I lived in Spain for four months. I was in the capitol of southern Spain, Seville. I visited several cities around Spain, but never had the chance to head up to Catalonia and visit the beautiful, international city, Barcelona.


I am a sucker for architecture, beautiful landscapes, and rich culture. Guatemala is one of those countries with colorful cities that just capture your heart. I can't think of a specific city I want to visit there, I just want to go and explore.

Pulau Perhentian, Malaysia

One of the things on my bucket list is to go snorkeling and swim in a clear ocean or sea. I want to explore the underwater life. I think Malaysia would be the perfect destination for some snorkeling or scuba diving in crystal clear waters and allow for some quality time in nature. 

Beijing, China


China is a major part of the world and I hope to have the opportunity to visit one day. I want to see the vibrant culture in the bustling streets and intricate architecture. I also want to visit the Great Wall of China!

Do you have any travel recommendations?

What a fun swap, Lisa and Courtney! And I really, really would love to go to Guatemala. In fact, we are saving our pennies right now and hope to go this spring!

I've been to Malaysia before, but never heard of Pulau Perhentian. Thanks for sharing, Courtney!

Lisa said...

Oh wow, that's so exciting. I hope you're able to make it out there!

Where are you planning to go in Guatemala??? I want to go one day. I am visiting Nicaragua in May! I am really looking forward to visiting a part of Central America.

Passionately Curious said...

Ohmygoodness, you were able to visit there?? So jealous! It is so beautiful! Hopefully, I can visit one day. :)

Barcelona is a must, must see! I check TravelZoo all the time for deals to Barcelona.

Lisa said...

I didn't know you were going to Nicaragua! What a great way to practice your Spanish!

It is! My friend and I visited during Holy Week, but we (naively) did not book our accommodation ahead of time, so we sort of got kicked out of the city because there was NO WHERE for us to stay! We wanted to stay longer, but only got 2.5 days there.

Yes! So excited for that experience in May!
