I absolutely love to travel; the adventure, the newness, the atmosphere, everything. So I thought that I would compile a list of places I really can't wait to visit. In no particular order here are my current Top 10 places I can't wait to visit. 


Italy has always been top of my list due to food, Italian is my fave, and the absolutely beautiful cities all over the country. There are a number of places in Italy I would to visit: Venice, Rome, Sorrento, Pompeii and many more. Venice in particular looks absolutely breathtaking. I have always wanted to visit Italy as everyone always has such amazing things to say about it. Back in March I was in Las Vegas, in the Venetian which is based on Venice and when we were walking around the hotel I told my husband, Stephen, that for our first Anniversary we will be visiting Venice. He is slowly coming around to the idea.

South Korea

Me and Stephen have both wanted to visit South Korea for a good couple of years. Stephen mainly for the advanced technology; I really want to experience the culture as well as visit the incredible temples and beautiful scenery. South Korea is so advanced and the standard of living is amongst the highest in the world and their Government is booming. 


We have both wanted to visit Canada for a number of years. We want to experience the culture and do typical Canadian things like watch Ice Hockey and visit Tim Hortons. Haha I'm joking but we do want to do those things. We really want to visit Niagara Falls as well as Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal. I would love to experience a proper cold Winter in Canada and relish in the snow. Typical British girl right?! Recently Victoria from InTheFrow vlogged about her trip with TrekCanada and it looked insane. That would be incredible but probably also cost a years mortgage for us.


I have now been to America once and have visited 2/3 states. Nevada and Florida and a layover in Atlanta, Georgia. My absolute dream is to visit every state. I have always had a love and fascination with America. I have always watched and loved American TV and culture and being in America was so amazing and didn't disappoint. I would love to live in America for a little bit or maybe travel the country for a year or so. We will see where life takes me. 


Everyone wants to visit Australia right?! I just love the accent and the standard of living is very high. They have great weather, great people and amazing sights. They also have a place named after South Wales (where I live) called New South Wales, which I need to see. The beaches look incredible, and Australians are known for being outdoorsy people, which I love.  The only thing holding me back is the price, to travel from the UK to Aus is v.expensive and the 24 hour flight. Oh lordy.


Me and Stephen holidayed in Mexico around 3 years ago now and it was absolutely beautiful. Looking at it in the holiday brochure it looked incredible and surely the photographs had been photoshoped right? Nope, it is equally as breath-taking maybe even more so with it's beautiful beaches and greenery. I would love to go back and do it all again. We visited the Chitchen Itza, which was insane and as we are both in love with Mayan culture, being there and hearing all the incredible stories was amazing. Truly one of the best holidays ever and we loved it. It's incredibly hot and humid but after a few days you get used to it. For anyone wanting a tan this is the place to go. Me and Stephen both hate sunbathing and being too hot and we still came back more tanned than ever before. 

Poland is one of the more difficult ones to write about. Although me and Stephen would both love to explore the cities of Poland and experience the culture. Our main reason for visiting Poland would be to visit Auschwitz. It is such an awful, awful part of History and we both believe that in order to not repeat history you must learn it, which comes from a George Santayana quote that reads "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it". I know that I will have a break down there and it will be incredibly incredibly sad. 

Iceland isn't actually that far from us (under 3 hours by plane fyi) and we would love to visit over the Winter period and see the Northern Lights as well as going sledding with huskies. There are lots of beautiful places to visit within Iceland so it will be hard to pick where to stay when we do finally get around to going. I would love to stay in one of those Glass Igloos, they look insane.

Greece is one of those destinations that everyone seems to have visited over the last year or so, me being the exception. Of course, I know this is not true but it looks like an incredible place full of beautiful buildings, charming culture and sunny warm weather. There are a number of places within Greece and it's Islands that I would to visit so that will be a hard chat with the travel agent. Greece looks like a destination that we will keep for when we have a family as it looks very kid-friendly. Since I saw a photograph of the beautiful white buildings in Santorini I have wanted to visit and my dream is not going away without a fight.

If anyone asked me right now where I would go on an all expenses paid trip I will answer Bali. It looks absolutely incredible, one of those places you think you will never afford to visit, I am so hoping I am wrong, but I will get there if it takes me years and years of saving up the pennies, I will get there. Bali is one of those magical places that has everything I want; The temples look incredible and my feet need to be walking the beautiful tropical rainforest and beaches. It looks somewhat similar to Mexico but like a 1st class premium version, no offence Mexico you know I love you. Jatiluwih Green Land looks absolutely insane, don't believe me? Google it. My number one reason for traveling and being in other countries is to soak up the culture and history and Bali is one of those places that has both in buckets. I cannot wait for the day that I can say I'm off to Bali. It'll be a long flight and an even longer saving up period but I hope to be there soaking up the culture and beautiful scenery one day. One day. 

This post has intensified my need to travel and I will be dragging Stephen down the travel agents. There are still loads and loads more places I would love to visit. This is just my Top 10 current countries; yup, this is not even skimming the surface. There are so many individual cities and even towns that I would love to visit and writing them all down would take a lifetime. I am hoping to travel a lot more over the coming year and share lots of beautiful places with you on my blog. KDB, katiedoesbeauty fyi, was created as a Beauty outlet but as I've grown I want to incorporate more lifestyle and travel into my space on the internet and I hope you enjoy it. 

Let me know what your top 10 places to visit are in the comments below and I would love to hear of your travels so I can add them to my list.
