I have been meaning to write this post for a while now and seeing other bloggers share similar posts has given me the push I needed to crack on with my own list. I haven’t ever been out of New Zealand or had a proper holiday and surprisingly my travel list is quite small. Maybe some of these choices will surprise you!
1. England/The UK
I thought I’d start with the obvious one! I am slightly obsessed with The UK and when I was a teenager I even wanted to move there. Now that I’m a bit older I figure it would make sense to visit first before committing to a move. I’d love to travel all over, big cities like London and Manchester but smaller, quaint towns too. I’d have to visit Yorkshire as that’s where my boyfriend is from. His dad was giving me a tour of York using Google Maps and everything looked so beautiful. I’d like to travel to Scotland and Ireland, with my hair they might think I was a local!
The romantic in me would love to travel to Paris. People seem to either love or hate Paris but I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to go. To eat proper French pastries and bread and see the Eiffel Tower would be magical. It would be logical to visit Paris for a couple of days during my visit to The UK, the countries are so close together and if I didn’t like it I haven’t committed to a whole trip on it’s own.
I will admit until earlier this year I barely knew anything about Bermuda. I watched some races in the Amercia’s Cup that was held in Bermuda and thought how nice the water and scenery looked on screen. The population is roughly 65,000 and the temperatures aren’t hot and tropical – I don’t like heat. The best part of all is that there is a beach with pink sand; Elbow Beach. British singer Louise Redknapp called her third album Elbow Beach after the place she married her husband.
4. Bora Bora
In the tiny bit of research I did for this post I discovered Bora Bora is like the Maldives but cheaper. Bora Bora has some of the clearest water and gorgeous beaches and seems to have a lovely relaxing, resort feel. I imagine it would be very peaceful and good for escaping. The only slight deterrent would be temperature but there is all that water and I’m sure there’s air conditioning right?!
When searching for pictures of Belgium online the first thing that struck me was how beautiful they looked. I don’t know a lot about Belgium apart from they’re good at making chocolate and it’s where Hercule Poirot is from. The country seems intriguing and I assume it wouldn’t be the typical place for people to visit.
What does your travel wishlist look like? Do you have a favourite place you’ve traveled to?
