I haven’t posted in a while due to currently being in the midst of my final year exams! Things are pretty stressful at the moment but I’ve completed 2 out of 3 of my exams, so the end is in sight. After that I won’t know what to do with myself!
I’m led here not doing anything remotely productive towards studying for that last exam, so I thought I might as well be semi-productive and try to create a blog post. I previously did a Top 5 European Destinations Wishlist so I thought I’d do an International one outside of Europe. I haven’t really thought much about what the 5 will be so I better have a little think about this… Three are quite easy though.
1. New York
NYC is just iconic isn’t it. And I think I’d love it. I love cities and architecture and New York is just the ultimate city to visit IMO. A lot of the romanticism also comes from the many tv shows and films that have been set there and being able to walk the streets as if I’m in Gossip Girl is just goals.
2. South Africa
By South Africa I mainly mean to go on a safari/wildlife orientated trip, but it’d be cool to be able to see the cities too. But I am just such a wildlife lover, there’s not much I get more excited about than a new David Attenborough documentary – what a legend. It’d just be the most amazing experience to see animals truly in the wild and I can only imagine how beautiful the country is. When I saw Tanya Burr and Jim Chapman’s honeymoon photos it completely cemented any desire to go there.
3. The Maldives
I mean come on, this is hardly an obscure choice if you read any beauty/fashion blogs or watch any YouTubers. Along with Santorini it seems like they’ve all been going there over the past couple of years! It undeniably looks incredible though; a real paradise location. I don’t think I could stay here for weeks as I’d probably get a bit bored, unless there’s lots more to do than I am imagining there is! The dream would be to stay in one of the little huts over the sea ❤ Absolute paradise. The relaxation would be unreal. Having said all this I am not 100% committed to the Maldives for this type of escape; Seychelles, Bahamas or Tahiti would do too… 😛
I don’t know exactly where in Canada BUT what I envisage is somewhere mountainous and foresty where I could see some moose, with snow on the mountain tops and crystal blue lakes surrounded by greenery, or autumn leaves depending on the time of year 😉 And maybe a whale watching trip thrown in there because I would LOVE to see some whales irl.
5. Disneyworld, Florida
This is probably more one for the far off future, as much as I would love to go in any circumstances, I think it’s probably somewhere you need kids to take… So maybe if I’m ever lucky enough to have children I’d LOVE to take them and live my childhood dreams along with them lol. I love Disney and it was such a big part of my childhood, many happy memories watching Disney films and I was lucky enough to go to Disneyland Paris when I was younger. But I know this place would be like that on steroids, Americans don’t do anything by halves! I imagine it is simply magical and what wonderful memories you could make there.
I don’t know how interesting that was for anyone to read but it really got me thinking lol. I couldn’t think of a definite 5th one… I was toying with Hawaii, Australia & New Zealand, I’d love to go to them too! But then I remembered Disney and how amazing it would be to go there in my lifetime 🙂
