If you’re like me, you’ve probably had a wild case of the travel bug or as one might call it, wanderlust. This is a serious matter, especially if you’re a seasoned traveler. Seasoned or not, it just sucks being stuck at home. Whether you have to stay put for work, family, or save some beans for your next getaway, don’t look at the travel bug as a mere tease. Embrace it and create travel plans for yourself. It will give you a new motivation to incorporate travel into you hectic life. So if you’re diagnosed with a tumultuous case of the travel bug, consider creating a bucket list of the things you’d like to do on your next trip. Oh wait, duh, PourToi got you covered with the ultimate bucket list for our Brown Travel Girls:
1. Party in a rooftop bar in Accra, Ghana
Ghana in itself is the spot to be if you’re curious about your ancestral roots and pure blackness. Since you’ll be there, why not order a pine wine while you’re at it?
2. Eat authentic Haitian/Caribbean food in Montreal
As a Northeast gal who grew up in a Caribbean household, I’m tellin’ you the truth. Hop on a bus, plane, or train and check out the Afro-Caribbean influence in Montreal, the capital of French-speaking Quebec.
3. See the Shifen Waterfall create a rainbow in Taiwan
Sometimes you gotta be creative with your bucket lists. The little things matter in travel too.
4. Ride an e-tuk-tuk in Jozi, South Africa
Why not discover an exuberant South African city on an e-tuk? It’s friendly to the environment and not the mention, absolute fun and accessible.
5. Take a tour in Petit Canal
People are sleeping on Guadeloupe, period. Petit Canal, or Ti Kannal, is a historic site known for its slave memorials. Let’s soak some history with that sun, shall we?
6. Go surfing in the Sayulita, Mexico
Not many people get to say they went surfing in the hippy village of Sayulita, Mexico. Who knows, maybe you might see a paddlesurfing championship while you’re out there.
7. Visit the blue city in Casablanca, Morocco
Feeling blue? Not the melancholy blue, but the ebullient blue that glistens when the sun hits it. Casablanca will have you hooked on azure blue.
8. Drink exquisite wine from Bordeaux, France
Visit a classic winery in Bordeaux and you will fall in love with wine again. There’s nothing like a cool glass of fresh rosé on a Sunday day in southern France.
9. Book a room at a floating hostel in Cartegena, Columbia
First, hostels are very cheap. Second, it’s in the middle of the sea. And it’s eco-friendly. Nuff said, where’s my ticket?
10. See the Northern Lights in Lapland for New Years
A girl can dream but the sky’s the limit…literally. For New Years, book a round trip to Lapland to experience the Northern Lights for real and share a new year’s kiss under the sky’s colorful treasure.
