4 places I don’t want to visit 

Most of us have some serious wanderlust. That ever growing list of places we want to visit, and a pang of envy every time we see a beautiful photo of someone in an amazing place. 

So I thought it might be fun to think about the places we DON’T want to visit. Of course, lots of people love these places and I’m not saying they’re not amazing destinations – they’re just not for me.


This is not a popular view in the blog world, but I don’t get the Disneyland thing.

Don’t get my wrong, I love a bit of Disney. I loved the films as a kid and I’ve enjoyed some of the newer ones, like Inside Out, too. I’m even slightly tsum tsum obsessed. But people dressed up as characters? Just not for me.

Las Vegas

Maybe I’m just not a party person at heart, but the bright lights of Vegas have never appealed to me. I’m sure it would be an unforgettable experience, but somewhere that brash and intimidating is not really my ideal holiday destination.


This is quite simple, really. Two things I really don’t get on with – spiders and very hot weather – on the end of a very long flight. Beautiful beaches and breathtaking scenery aside, I don’t think you’ll ever get me to Oz.


I know Dubai is some people’s idea of ultimate luxury – the kind of place they’d go if money were no object. Dubai has just never really struck me as a ‘real’ place. Maybe a bit like Vegas, it all seems a bit over the top. Also, did I mention I don’t like heat?!

I hope that helped you delete a few items from your bucket list! Is there somewhere people rave about which doesn’t appeal to you?

    Australia is right up at the top of my Anti-Bucket List – I don’t get the draw, personally. And as someone who’s terrified of flying at the best of times I don’t think I could cope with the flight!

      You’d definitely only want a flight that long for somewhere you were dying to go! I guess it’s very hot and long haul and so feels a bit exotic but is still super safe and developed. That’s my theory, anyway!
