Places I Want To Go in 2022

Madeleine Ray

It's a fresh new year and this is officially my travel vision board. Feeling nostalgic for times past in 2022 I want to revisit some of the most important places I have traveled in my lifetime, and maybe check off a few new bucket list items. From Tokyo to Vancouver, this is my entirely personal 2022 travel wishlist that is sure to be added onto frequently.

  • Quebec City in Quebec, Canada

      Quebec City is a little slice of paradise akin to a fantastical theme park that includes gorgeously preserved architecture, delicious food, and a touristy atmosphere that is not overwhelming. With such a calm vibe, so many excellent views, and the most delicious food in the world (I am *not* exaggerating), Quebec is a perfect getaway year-round.

  • Paris in Île-de-France, France

      I haven't been to Paris since I was a young girl and all the years between my last trip and my future dream vacation builds in anticipation. A romantic dinner in a glittering bistro munching on escargot (don't judge) is all I can think about right now. With so many breathtaking museums to explore, sights to see, and shopping to do, Paris is high on my 2022 bucket list.

  • Washington D.C.

      I visited DC for the first time in 2019, and I was entirely charmed by this cozy yet exciting destination. I hope to do a full tour of all the historical monuments, old neighborhoods, and iconic museums in the spring- along with ample time spent beneath freshly bloomed pink cherry blossom trees.

  • New York in New York, United States

      NYC is never a bad idea, and as many times as I visit the city, I never truly feel like I have seen enough by the time I have to say "goodbye". My plan for 2022 is to embrace the magic of fall in NYC and have a spectacular, crispy leaved, pumpkin-flavored vacay in late October. Thrift shopping in Brooklyn, Halloween decorations, and old bookstores- sounds like a spooky good time.

  • Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada

      I visited Canada for the first time in 2019 and have yet to visit this famously gorgeous destination. As a major fan of Nanaimo bars (a chocolately Canadian pastry), being so close to its birthplace will be a true delight. I imagine a late spring getaway exploring pristine natural landscapes and strolling along the shoreline during the evening.

  • Seoul

      Seoul is a glimmering city, full of excitement and fun. I am a big fan of Korean food, and I am ready to get creamy banana milk from the convenience store and fresh Tteok Poki from a street stall. Seoul is famous for both its breathtaking scenery and bustling city life. South Korea has remained open for tourism, so my 2022 goal is to have a summer excursion to this beautiful destination.

  • Tokyo in Tokyo, Japan

      I miss the neon-colored nights, the tranquil parks decorated with candy-pink cherry blossoms, the effortless combination of old and new. Tokyo is easily one of the most dynamic and exciting travel destinations on the planet. I spent over five years studying in Tokyo, and it is one of my top go-to destinations as soon as tourism re-opens.
