Wanderlust is an amazing thing, here are five places on Earth i’m dying to visit!
1. Phi Phi Islands – Thailand
Although James and I have been to Thailand, we didn’t get a chance to go to the Phi Phi Islands. We were on limited time, so in the end decided to choose some of the larger Islands to explore during our first visit to the country. Thailand for me was like paradise, especially all the secluded beaches we found, but this has been one place I have wanted to go, it looks insanely beautiful. Although devastated by the Tsunami in 2004, the islands were hand cleared of 23,000 tonnes of debris and by the end of 2005, were again open to tourists. Phi Phi Le is home to the famous Maya bay, featured in the film The Beach, it has become a hotspot for travellers all over the world. Hearing tales of how busy it has become, I would love to do a night tour, which promises that as the sun goes down, there will be peace and quiet and you literally have the whole place to yourself!
2. New York at Christmas
How magical does it look? Imagine strolling through a snow covered Central Park, wrapped up warm in all your winter finery, hand in hand with the one you love. I’ve heard New York is amazing any time of year, but I wouldn’t want to miss the Christmas Tree at the Rockefeller Center Plaza or the chance to Ice Skate in Central Park. Plus there is always the chance to go to FAO Schwarz and play on the giant piano. I’m hoping that one day I will get to fulfill my dream and land in New York City at Christmas!
This bustling city has always been at the top of any travel list I may have had. From the mayhem of the Djeema el-Fna, with it’s snake charmers and acrobats, to the peace and tranquility of the Jardin Majorella. There really is something for everyone in this amazing place. I imagine myself discovering something amazing in the souks and visiting the Koutoubia Mosque, which is visible for miles around the city.
I’ve always been amazed by the thought of how this was built, it’s less than 250 miles from my front door and I am so ashamed to say that I have never been! Stonehenge has a history of over 4,500 years, has so many meanings to so many different people and is one of the best known prehistoric monuments in Europe.
There’s a visitor centre now, where you can discover neolithic houses or see an audio visual 360 degree representation of the seasons from inside the circle. I shall some day get here and I can’t wait to see what I feel when I do.
5. Kakslauttanen Igloo Village – Finland
This place looks beautiful! Situated in Saariselka, known as Finnish Lapland, you can actually sleep in a glass igloo. If you travelled here you would definitely be wanting to see the Northern Lights, which has always been at the top of my bucket list. Everyone always says “don’t go for the northern lights, go for the destination” which if i’m honest is one of the best pieces of advice you will here on the subject. There is no guarantee that you will see the lights dance. I think I would be disappointed if I went and did not see them, but you could still say you had an amazing time! I think you need to be prepared for anything and one hell of a long night. People say that you need to be patient and don’t expect it before you go.
Where would you go if you could go anywhere on Earth? Whats your favourite place so far?
