Where in the world would you go?

Mistress Carrie's Top 5 Bucket List destinations

November 28, 2018

So, I recently met a guy named Anders Lindstrom, who works for Norwegian Air. They just added two new direct flights from Boston, one to Madrid, and the other to Rome.

He and I sat down to talk about travelling the world. He's been to over 80 countries, I have some catching up to do. It got me thinking about my Bucket List, yes I have one... I keep it on my cell phone, and when I come across something online, or when a friend shares pictures from their vacation I add things to my list. 

Norwegian has 2 non stop flights to Europe already:

London (already checked this off my list when I crosses Abbey Road)

But I've only flown through Paris.

They also just added direct flights to Madrid 

and Rome.

That brings me to my  Top 5 Bucket LIst destinations...

1. Italy I want to eat bread and cheese, while drinking wine in Italy, and research where in Sicily my family came from.

2. Australia/New Zealand I figure if you are going to travel all that way, you should go to both. I have always wanted to climb the Syndney Harbor Bridge.

3. Hawaii Because who doesn't want to go there... seriously?

4. The Northern Lights I have always wanted to see them, and I love the idea of camping in a glass topped igloo so I can watch them all night. I'm open to suggestions on the location if you have one.

5. To see all 50 states. I've got 37 checked off so far. Alaska and Hawaii are the 2 toughest, and could help check off the Northern Lights and Hawaii from this list.

I love to travel, and there are so many places I want to go, this is just what came to my head as I was writing this.

My Top 5 places I've already been are pretty cool too.

1. South Africa (a must go trip... the safari was life changing)

2. Iraq (in 2006 as part of Boston to Baghdad embedded with US troops)

3. Afghanistan (in 2011 as part of AAF to Afghanistan embedded with US troops)

4. Romania (I've always dreamed of going to Bran Castle)

5. England (seriously crossing Abbey Road was a dream come true for this DIE HARD Beatles fan)

Below is the press release about the new flights from Boston. Get travelling!

Check out my interview with Anders from Norwegian Air as well! I may have to call him about ROME!!!

  • New nonstop routes from Boston to Madrid and Rome -
  • Introduces London service from Miami and San Francisco
  • Increases Madrid, Paris and Rome frequencies from other U.S. cities -

 

NEW YORK CITY (NOVEMBER 28, 2018) – Norwegian, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Value Airline of the Year, will add two more European nonstop routes out of Boston’s Logan International Airport next summer, as well as move its existing London service from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to Miami International Airport and from Oakland International Airport to San Francisco International Airport. Norwegian offers the most nonstop routes from both California and Florida to Europe, and these moves will strengthen the airline’s operations in both states.

“We are continuously reinforcing Norwegian’s commitment to the U.S. as this is one of our most important markets. Transatlantic low fares resonate very well with both American leisure and business travelers, especially when matched with our award-winning inflight experience. Our new routes and increased frequencies will make us even more competitive, while offering Americans more options and more ways to save and enjoy travel,” said Bjørn Kjos, Founder and CEO of Norwegian. 

The new service from Boston to Rome will commence on March 31, 2019, and operate four times per week, with fares starting at $299.90 in Economy and $779.90 in Premium one way, inclusive of taxes. The new Madrid service will launch on May 2, 2019, and operate three times per week, with fares starting at $199.90 in Economy and $639.90 in Premium one way, inclusive of taxes. Both new routes will be summer seasonal only. Norwegian currently operates nonstop flights from Boston to London and Paris.

Additionally, the airline will move two of its existing London nonstop routes starting March 31, 2019. Service to London currently operated from Fort Lauderdale will move to Miami and from Oakland to San Francisco. Miami to London will be a daily service, while San Francisco to London service will be five times weekly. Economy fares from San Francisco to London start as low as $159.90 and from Miami at $159.90, one-way, including taxes. Premium fares are available as low as $719.90 from both U.S. cities, one-way, including taxes.

“We are honored by Norwegian’s decision to launch its first-ever Miami service, which will soon provide our passengers with yet another nonstop travel option to the United Kingdom and Europe. We look forward to welcoming their award-winning service to MIA, where nearly one million passengers already travel to and from the UK annually,” said Lester Sola, Miami-Dade Aviation Department Director and CEO.

“We are thrilled to welcome Norwegian service between SFO and London in the spring of 2019. With this move, travelers can enjoy Norwegian’s fantastic value together with SFO’s award-winning, world-class airport experience,” said San Francisco International Airport Director Ivar C. Satero.

Norwegian is also increasing frequencies on some of its Madrid, Paris and Rome service from other U.S. gateways for the summer 2019 schedule:

  • Denver to Paris will increase to three weekly flights, up from twice weekly.
  • Fort Lauderdale to Paris will increase to three weekly flights, up from twice weekly.
  • Los Angeles to Paris will increase to daily service, up from six weekly.
  • Los Angeles to Madrid will increase to four weekly flights, up from three weekly.
  • Los Angeles to Rome will increase to four weekly flights, up from three weekly.
  • New York to Madrid will increase to daily service, up from four weekly.
  • Oakland to Rome will increase to three weekly flights, up from twice weekly.
  • Orlando to Paris will increase to twice weekly service, up from once weekly.

 

Norwegian will now operate from 17 airports in the United States, and offers more than 50 nonstop routes to Europe, as well as four routes from the U.S. to Guadeloupe and Martinique in the French Caribbean, and three routes out of Canada.
