As 2015 is drawing to an end, it’s time to reflect and start looking forward to the new year. So it got me thinking about my 2016 travel bucket list.
Have you ever sat and daydreamed about amazing places you’d love to visit? I know I definitely have. Creating a bucket list with all the destinations you want to visit is a good way of keeping track and it’s easy to tick them off the list once you’ve been.
I thought I would share two destinations that are currently on my bucket list and will hopefully be explored in 2016.
Vienna is a beautiful city and somewhere I’ve wanted to visit for a while now. Recently it has been creeping further up my bucket list, so much so that I hope to make it happen in 2016. The buildings in Vienna are incredibly impressive such as the St. Stephen’s Cathedral (which I’ve read is not fully wheelchair accessible), the State Opera House and the Belvedere Palace & Museum (pictured above). Getting around Vienna shouldn’t be too difficult as the public transport including the subway system is pretty good from what I’ve read online. Most of the streetcars and bus lines have low floors making it more accessible for wheelchairs and people with mobility limitations with folding ramps on all buses. If you have a disability and travel by public transport then your companion will get to travel for free.
Iceland is definitely on my bucket list and just like Vienna, it has climbed higher up my list recently. I can’t wait to take a dip in the beautiful Blue Lagoon, watch the breathtaking waterfalls and maybe even enjoy some whale-watching too. Of course, a trip to Iceland wouldn’t be complete without trying to see the Northern Lights, so I’d hope that would be possible when we’re there. Watching the geyser erupt would also be pretty cool to see. From what I’ve read Iceland has good wheelchair accessibility including the Blue Lagoon and public transportation.
I can’t wait to start travelling again. Let’s hope 2016 has lots of great adventures in store for us all.
Do you have travel plans for 2016? What’s on your travel bucket list?
