I’m definitely not the most well traveled person; I would be absolutely useless backpacking, I don’t want to go to Australia because I’m scared of the animals and Thailand looks beautiful but I hate getting too hot. But travel means different things to everyone and I certainly don’t think there’s anything wrong with not wanting to travel extensively and perhaps only going to a select few places or staying closer to home, like a staycation. But although I’m not the most ambitious person when it comes to my travel prospects, there are still some places I’d love to go and things I’d love to do! Do you agree with any of these?
Go on a cruise
I love water and the sea so to go on a family cruise holiday would be an absolute dream for me! There are so many types of wonderful sounding cruises to choose from, from a Disney cruise to a cruise around the fjords in Norway (which my boyfriend has annoyingly been on!) or a exotic trip around the greek islands – including Santorini which I’d love to go to -, whichever one you choose I can imagine it would be an amazing experience and that you’d feel a million miles away from your every day normal.
See the Aurora Borealis
I’m not sure there’s a person on the planet who doesn’t want to see the Aurora Borealis at some point in their life?! (Well, there probably is) I’ve always thought they looked beautiful from photos and I can imagine seeing them in real life is a completely magical experience.
See the cherry blossoms in full bloom in Shinjuku Gyo-en and experience Japan
I’d love to visit Japan one day and although I’d fully immerse myself in the culture and trying the food (I love fish and sushi so it’d be a dream to eat it in Japan!) I’d also love to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom, which doesn’t happen for very long each year so you’re lucky to catch them. But what an utterly beautiful sight that would be!
Visit Santa in Lapland
I’m a lover of the cold and I’m also fascinated with Scandinavia so Finland is definitely at the top of my list of places I’d like to travel to but more specifically… I think I’d like to head straight to Santa Claus Village, meet Santa, play in the snow, go on a sleigh ride and just have the most magical Christmas ever!
Go to the Austrian Grand Prix
Definitely not for everyone this one but not only is Austria another place I’d love to visit because I mean, have you seen photos of it?! It looks like an actual fairy-tale but if you know me, you’ll know I love myself a bit of Motorsport and I’m yet to go to a Formula 1 Grand Prix (although I did go to my first DTM race last year, which I mentioned here) and Austria would be my first choice because the track is in such a beautiful location!
I’d love to hear about the travel experiences you’d like to have or ones that you’ve been lucky enough to already experience! Let me know!
