I know, I’ve had a thing for the number 5 lately (my last post had 5 things as well haha). When I think of places; there are five places in particular internationally that I would like to travel to. Honestly, I decided I’d make a blog post about my international travel blog posts in hopes that I’ll travel to them in the next 5 years. Fingers Crossed!
Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
Ubud, Bali is number one on my list and for good reason honestly. It has been a top destination and is all over Instagram; and all of the photos I have seen are absolutely stunning. I’m definitely a beach person, and this destination looks so relaxing and beautiful. Besides, I’ve always been in love with architecture and history of every country (History grad, here!) and the temples are absolutely beautiful. Not to mention, Airbnb is also incredibly cheap and entire villas range anywhere between $70-100+ and if you look far in advance they can be even more inexpensive. We found this Villa on Airbnb for instance: it has its own private pool and two bedrooms! Honestly, what a dream ?

Greece is one of those countries that has always been on my radar for as long as I can remember. I’ve been obsessed with Greek culture, food and history since I was in High School. Because of that, Marc and I even had planned an entire trip for this coming up May; but now we are saving money to buy a home. It’s also another country that isn’t expensive as far as accommodation goes; unless you do a Villa in Mykonos or Santorini ( which are more expensive than smaller islands such as Ios & Naxos in general).
Honestly, I can do an entire blog post of all the things I learned while planning our trip. If that’s something you guys would like from me let me know down below!
Rome, Italy was another country that we had planned to start our trip with and honestly it was a plus that flights from Nashville to Rome were like $750! ( I have a special blog post coming on how to find cheap international flights). Ultimately, we had found an AirBnb that was less than $150 for two nights between two couples. Which is absolutely incredible since it was directly in the middle of the city. Look how beautiful these photos are of Rome. How could you not want to go?!
If you haven’t heard of Positano, which I am sure you have. Go on Instagram and look up the tag because all the photos of this village on the Amalfi Coast are stunning. Positano seems like a more relaxing village and I found (hello, Pinterest guides) that it is easy to travel to from Rome by train (would love to do a trip all through Italy). The photo ops have to be so stunning, as it has a romantic vibe to it as well.
Tulum, Mexico is new on my radar as it started to pop up all over on my Pinterest and when a friend from work went on her honeymoon there and said it was amazing. This town is a complete dream for those of you who want to be able to relax also while being able to see historical sites. Although, It is a boho dream it is a little more on the expensive side but I feel like it would be so worth it. Every guide that I have read shows that it is so magical and makes the city of Tulum sound very friendly in terms of venturing in this part of Mexico.
Y’all writing this makes me wanna travel so bad, and hopefully after reaching our financial plans we can then work on our travel plans! I definitely believe that writing your dreams out can put them in motion (the universe just knows yah know?).
Do you all have any dream places on your bucket lists? if so, what are they?
I hope this post gives you a little bit of my travel bug and get excited for more travel related posts from me! <3
