With 2015 fast approaching, and 2014 fading into the mirrors behind us and far too quickly into our TimeHop Apps, it’s time to start dreaming about where I want to visit next year. Woohoo! Next year is potentially even more exciting for me as I’m lucky enough to be taking a few months off before I start my big-girl job. And now there’s nothing left to do, but plan, and save, and dream!
I’ve already written a cheeky post all about my wanderlust for Bali, but if I had to pick one place to visit next year, this would be it. After visiting Sri Lanka this year, I’m desperate to head back over to that side of the world. Culture, beaches, wonderful people and amazing food? What is there to say no to!
This one I know I’ll be crossing off the list as it’s already booked, but it’s been a major dream of mine to go to this amazing city, and frankly, I can’t wait!
I’ve been skiing in Europe before, but I’d love to ski Canada. It’s meant to be an incredible experience, and it gives me an excuse to nip across the pond. I’d love to spend some time here, travel around, and see as much of the country as possible. But skiing – that’s got to be very high up the list.
This seems like the perfect mother daughter break (hint hint mum!) for a girly city break. Shopping, good food and wine, and some amazing sights to see. I know my mum’s been before, but I’ve never been, and it’s meant to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. So muuuumm…. fancy a little city break?!
A certain Mister in my life keeps telling me that the beaches in the Philippines are meant to be the best in the world, and who am I to say no to a good beach? I mean you couldn’t possibly make a judgement about seeing the best beaches without having seen them all, could you? Didn’t think so. Seems this just has to be on the list!
One of my closest friends spent part of her year abroad in Seville last year, but I never made it out to see her here, but I’d love to go back and visit. I know she would too, so many this will be the year that we finally make a girls weekend of it. Major bonus: she speaks Spanish, and I can just about mumble my way through “Hola!” And isn’t the best way of seeing a place being taken round by a local?
7. New Zealand
I’ve wanted to see New Zealand for as long as I can remember: so many friends of mine have been and said that it’s one of the best places they’ve ever visited. What I would give to spend a couple of weeks in this amazing country! Maybe it even gives me the chance to avoid some of the British winter next year, and soak up a second summer? I’d love to travel all the way down New Zealand, so maybe 2015 is the year!
I can’t believe that it was 2 years ago this January that I went to Prague. Crazy. But I’ve still something inside me pulling me back to Eastern Europe, and Budapest is top of that list. It looks so beautiful, and so different to other cities. A real experience. Again, maybe another trip with mum?! (I do hope you’re reading this mum..!)
9. New York
I’ve been before, and I’ll go again, but there’s something so magical about this city, and I never know what it is that keeps pulling me back again and again. But there’s something about it!
So I’ve been living in France for 4 months now (crazy!) but I’ve barely seen the country that I’m living in. I’m determined to see more of this amazing country before I move back to sunny England this summer.
Riads, markets and a little bit of sunshine. yes please! The amazing thing about Marrakesh is that you can get some incredible deals, and flights can be seriously inexpensive.
Okay, so it’s an ambitious list, and it’s very unlikely that I’m going to be able to visit all of these incredible places. But, the world is there to be explored, cultures to be experienced, landmarks to visit, photos to be taken, and most importantly, memories to be made. So here’s to 2015, and the places I’ll see and memories I’ll make with family and friends!
