This weeks theme is EVENTS OR FESTIVALS YOU WOULD LOVE TO ATTEND/SEE AROUND THE WORLD
I have so many of these on my bucket list and according to most sites nearly everything on my list below is in the top 20 of must see/do in the world. Here I thought mine were special lol I wonder how many people that link up will have most if not at least 1 of these:
1. The Rio de Janeiro Carnival – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
This just looks amazing and so colorful! It is definitely at the top of my list to see for sure. And I am sure hubby wouldn’t mind going for the women dressed like this:
2. Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead) – Mexico
This one may seem strange, but it is one that I have wanted to see or take part in for a long time. The Day of the Dead celebrates death rather than fears it, and it is usually associated with the Sugar Skulls (which I would love a tattoo off)
3. Holi – India
Known as the festival of colours and it celebrates the end of winter and the beginning of spring you can celebrate it anywhere in the world but I would love to experience it in India.
4. Running of The Bulls – Pamplona, Spain
This is one that I wouldn’t take part in but would to see. Controversial? Yes. Dangerous? Yes. But would still love to see it none the less (along with a traditional bull fight – which completely contradicts my views on animal cruelty……)
5. La Tomatina – Spain
This one seems like so much fun, and one I would have to do on my own as hubby hates tomatoes! lol
6. Oktoberfest – Munich, Germany
7. Saint Patrick’s Day – Ireland
8. Mardi Gras – New Orleans
I have loved the idea of Mardi Gras for a long time, though I guess it would have been better to have seen this before I had kids etc – interested in what all the beads mean 😉
9. The Wickerman Festival – Scotland
Scotland second largest music festival to T in the Park, but the added bonus of burning a giant wickerman at the end of of the festival.

Last but not least, for all I live in Scotland I have never ventured up to Shetland Isles or Orkney. This is a festival I have heard of and put it on my to do list.
It is apparently Europe largest fire festival and they even burn a FULL SIZE viking ship! How awesome would that be to see??
What would be on you list to see around the world?
Don’t for get to link up with us 🙂
