My top 5 travel destinations for 2016

After traveling in Asia and living in Bali we moved back to Iceland the summer of 2015. We enjoyed our travels and the excitement that comes with moving to a foreign country and experiencing new cultures. When we finally came back to Iceland, we felt how much we had missed having a place of our own, having a home. We were lucky to find the place we're living in now and for the first time in almost 8 months we feel the urge to travel again soon, feeling wanderlust!

wan·der·lust - /ˈwändərˌləst/. - a strong desire to travel.

Here are the top places I would love visiting in 2016!

#1 - Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Recently we have been looking at pictures of this beautiful city, and it has really captured our interest. We have often heard about the negative sides of Amsterdam, but once we started to dig deeper we soon saw that this city has so much more to offer! We really want to go there, rent bikes and experience the art & food culture there! Right now it's on the top of my list!

#2 - Paris, France.

Who wouldn’t want to visit the capital of romance, love and fashion?! It's long been a dream of ours to go there and that’s why it takes the number two spot!

#3 - London, England

We've never been to London and we have heard great things about it! It's relevantly cheap to fly there and it is a great place to start our travel and then head elsewhere. 

#4 - Melbourne, Australia

We are planning to visit Bali again sometime this year and it would be great to use the opportunity to visit Australia as one does seldomly travel to Australia if you live in Iceland. Also our Aussie friends have talked highly of this hipster city. The coffee and art scene is supposedly amazing!

#5 - Hong kong

We don't know much about Hong Kong but we are intrigued by their skyscrapers, fashion and mix of cultures found in one place! It's one of the main business centers in the world and even has Disney land. What more do you need...hehe.

I'm not sure we will be able to visit all these places this year and maybe this list will change, but for now these are the places I dream about going to! 2016 is going to be the best year so far I believe and I can't wait to see what it will bring our way.

I would love to hear what your list looks like and what destinations you would add in the comment section below! 

Happy traveling!
