Are you looking to dream and fantasize about a trip to the US and Canada? You have come to the right place. Here are all the things I have been dreaming about doing when I make it to these two amazing countries again.
Visit as many shows as possible on Broadway
As you probably know, I am a huge fan of musicals. I have had the chance to see Phantom of the Opera on Broadway the last time I was in New York more than ten years ago. If I make it back, I would love to explore this world of fantastic theater more and immerse myself in it as much as possible.
Take a Road Trip along the West Coast with friends
The US is the ideal country for road trips. It has been a dream of mine for a while to grab some friends and drive from Seattle down to San Diego (or even all the way to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico). Enjoying all the gorgeous nature along the road, stopping at roadside dinners for greasy food, and enjoying the time with friends on the road.
Experience 4th of July
4th of July is one of the most openly celebrated days in the United States. Everybody is out, nice to their neighbors, and in good spirit. While I do believe it is over-celebrated, but it is so American that it would be interesting to experience.
Boston has always intrigued me. It has the history of colonization as well as the newly developed culture. I like the Europeanness but also the culture that is now in Boston due to the many universities they have in and around the city.
Enjoy Madri Gras in New Orleans
There have been many books and movies about this famous event. This tradition, brought to the US by the French in the 17th century, has started growing to a grand scale in New Orleans. It is a happy festivity that I would like to witness one day.
Go to a real Texan BBQ
There is something special about the way they do BBQs in the South. They are so famous for their love for food, especially meat. Therefore, enjoying food in States like Texas is not just a meal but a full experience.
Be in DC during Cherry Blossom
Cherry Blossom is one of the most beautiful natural phenomena. Normally experienced in Japan, it can be imagined almost as well in DC. It is beautiful and such an amazing experience. It would also be a great chance for fantastic photos.
Explore the nature of Alaska
There is so much untouched nature in Alaska that many do not get to see. I would love to explore this in one way or another.
Explore the Street Art of Toronto
I have seen so many of my fellow travel bloggers and other influencers post amazing pictures from around Toronto. It would be amazing to be able to explore them myself and take lots of pictures with amazing street art.
Walk around Vancouver
I have heard so many amazing things from family and friends who have been to this city. It has a history which is still visible in the center. I would love to walk around this part and immerse myself in it.
See Maple syrup production
Maple syrup is one of the most known products from Canada. I have heard from friends once how it was produced and it sounds very interesting. I would love to be able to experience this myself one day and be able to eat maple syrup as fresh as possible.
This is my constantly evolving US and Canada bucketlist. There are probably many more things missing, so feel free to share them with me in the comments below or on social media.
