Our Post Lockdown Travel Bucket List

10 February 2021

post lockdown travel bucket list

I first published this post last year during the first lockdown and I remember writing it with lots of hope that in 2021 our travel diaries would be jam packed full of days out, weekends away and at least one trip to a Disney park booked. Unfortunately our travel plans are exactly the same as last year - zero. 

As it's just the beginning of the year we would have only normally visited local parks and beaches anyway but it's the short breaks, days out and holidays planned we are really missing out on and struggling with. 

Whilst it's rubbish that we haven't been able to travel we are safe and healthy at home and the extra time at home has been great for saving for holidays and break aways when it is safe to do so. I'm not sure what travel will look like this year but I really do hope we manage to tick off at least a few from our post lockdown travel bucket list.

Southport Pier


Southport Pier
I'm thinking we may be a little nervous travelling outside our local area for the first time so I know we will want to stay close. Some of our favourite memories as a couple, a family of three then a family of four are at Southport Pier. A nice stroll along the pier, a visit to the penny arcade and fish and chips overlooking the beach might be just what we need.

Wicker Man At Alton Towers


Alton Towers
As a theme park loving family this is what we are missing the most, a visit to Alton Towers or any of the Merlin theme parks . In between lockdowns and tiered systems in 2020 we did manage to squeeze a trip to Alton Towers Gardens and Alton Towers. Knowing what to expect when visiting Alton Towers after lockdown will really help us perpare for our next visit as is it very different. 

Season of the superheroes at Disneyland Paris


Disneyland Paris
We are all in need of a walk down Main Street at Disneyland Paris. Seeing the castle is my favourite thing and I just cannot wait till the day we can visit again. I absolutely love Disney but after watching all the Marvel movies in chronological order in 2019 we headed to Disneyland for the Marvel event, Season of the Superheroes and we were blown away. It added a little bit extra to the trip and meeting Captain America was a highlight for us all. We have just started watching the movies again so I have everything crossed the Marvel event will go ahead in May and June and we get to visit. 

The Lake District


The Lake District
A visit to The Lakes will definitely be a must if it's safe to visit during the Summer months. We have visited many areas of the lakes over the years but our favourite is definitely Bowness on Windermere with a nice boat trip over to Ambleside. We head up to the lake district a few times a year including a big family trip each Summer staying in a cottage it's such a beautiful place. 

The Disney Castle

Disneyland
At the beginning of the year we got talking about visiting Disneyland in California. We have visited Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in Paris so it was only natural to think about Disneyland in California. John wasn't too keen on the idea mainly due to the flight time but now I think if we ever get to travel to the USA again I think it will definitely be on our travel plans.

Unfortunately at this moment we have no idea what travel will look like in the future but we can still plan and dream that one day the world will go back to normal.

Every year I make a bucket list full of hopes and goals and most of them we achieve but I forget to tick them off as I go along. I've wrote our 3 bucket lists out and will try and remember to come back and update them once we have achieved.

It's the 1st of September and for me September is the beginning of a new year. I go back to work after being off all Summer and the boys are back to school. September is also the start of my favourite time of year. There is just something so special about Autumn and then the lead up to Christmas, I just love it. I've jotted down below a list of things I would love to tick off my bucket list this month.

Monthly Bucket List - September 2017

6 September 2017

8 comments

I have decided to start up my monthly bucket lists again so I can keep a note of all the things I want to do each month. I usually start the month with a list of things I need or want to do and by the end I haven't actually achieved anything. It's so frustrating so from now on I'm going to make time to complete my list.

5 April 2016

Although it may not seem like it with the awful weather, Spring is finally here. When Spring arrives we can enjoy the lighter evenings and some brighter weather. I do love the lighter evenings and its always nice to wake up with the sun is shining through. We have had a think and created our new Spring Bucket List. We managed to tick a few things off our New Year Bucket list and hopefully we will do the same for Spring.
