I’ve been lucky enough to travel more this year. I decided to say yes to traveling on a plane, conquering my fear of flying. Before, I’d never been that fussed about venturing to new places, because the thought of stepping on a boat or aeroplane was too much. Now, I have my passport and sunscreen at the ready for my next adventure. Although, I’ll be swapping the factor 30 for woolly layers for the first location on my travel wish list!
1. NORTHERN LIGHTS, NORWAY
Ever since first seeing The Snowman, I’ve wanted to see the Northern Lights. Word is that the best place to see the Aurora Borealis is in Norway. Fred Olsen offers different cruises from UK to Norway with chances to stay in the Ice Hotel in Alta and experience traditional Sami culture. This would make a truely magical holiday!
2. PARIS, FRANCE
Who doesn’t want to pretend that they’re Amelie or Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face. Paris is always a good idea, after all! I’d love to enjoy a morning coffee at a pavement cafe, eat macarons at Laduree and see the Eiffel Tower.
3. SANTORINI, GREECE
For me, Santorini is the ideal destination for a grown up romantic get away. There are ancient cities and caves to be discovered. Followed by a glass (or two) of local wine and beautiful Mediterranean cuisine. World famous Santorini cherry tomatoes and white aubergines make meal times a foodies heaven!
New York, Mexico and the Maldives are also in my wanderlust list! I’d love to hear what’s on yours!
