If I was to take a few months away from everyday life to spend backpacking, South American would be my continent of choice. The varied vibrant culture, stunning landscapes and ancient history are all fascinating. I’d love to spend some time in cities like Rio De Janeiro and Buenos Aires as well as see the beautiful scenery of Bolivia and Peru. Festival celebrations are supposedly epic. And then of course there’s the Amazon. Also if you wanted to volunteer as part of your trip there’s plenty of opportunity- I’d always go for the wildlife rescue!
I’m happy to be able to say that I’ll be visiting Santorini in the next few months. Although were not planning on staying on the Island (it’s pricey FYI) we will be taking a day trip. Its got to be one of the most sort after Greek holiday destinations especially for romantic getaways. When I had a look at hotels I could see why, some of them would make beautiful honeymoon stays. I hope that we get the chance to see some of the traditional Greek towns and volcanic beaches while were there.
I mean just look at these beaches! Cape Verde is made up of a group of islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the African coast. The flight time is only around 6 hours from the UK which seems completely worth it for the perfect relaxing beach holiday. It’s supposed to be unspoilt and have a unique mix of cultures.
I’ve got to admit that I’ve never been to the USA. Like alot of people, top of my list of must see US cities is New York. I don’t think it needs much explaining! James is also really keen to go back so I’m keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that we’ll be visiting the Big Apple in the not too distant future.
Anyone who’s recently had to spend large amounts of time in my company will know that I’ve been banging on about going to Iceland for a while now. There’s just so much to see! The landscapes are so beautiful and I’d love nothing more than to catch the Northern lights. I feel like I spend my life jealous of anyone who’s just come back from Iceland….
What’s top of your dream travel destinations?
