Today's Travel Tuesday prompt is one of my favourites! Bonnie has asked everyone to share three places, so here goes…
the place you have been that you have loved the most
Undoubtedly New Zealand. I was lucky enough to spend five weeks there seven years ago (WHAT THE ACTUAL F*£k! How has it been that long!) and I loved every minute of it.
The country is just stunningly beautiful and everywhere you look your eyes are assaulted by an even more amazing view. I honestly can’t even describe how breath-taking New Zealand is (and these pictures definitely don't do it justice!). What makes it even more impressive is that the country contains every sort of landscape possible – rolling hills, stunning mountains, dark caves, sumptuous forests, glorious lakes, breath-taking glaciers, wonderful beaches and unusual vistas. There’s just so much to see and do that you can’t be bored and you can easily fill five weeks there. Plus the people are the friendliest people I’ve ever met. Even though I’ve explored it so much already I can’t wait to return (this time for longer) and do it all over again.
the place you cannot wait to visit
There are a lot of places on my Bucket list – Amsterdam (which will be ticked off in less than two weeks!), Sweden, South Africa, Dubai and Seattle to name just a few, but the one I really can’t wait for? That would have to be Iceland. It’s the sort of place that looks and sounds made up as it just looks so different to anything I've ever seen or experienced. I can’t wait to go Puffin watching, visit the famous and beautiful Geysers and visit the Blue Lagoon. Plus there are the Northern Lights there. I would LOVE to see the Northern Lights. One day.
something about the place you live
London is one of my all-time favourite cities and I have to pinch myself when I realise I LIVE here. How awesome is that! I get to experience the amazing theatre productions at the NationalTheatre (three booked for the rest of the year – A Small Family Business, Medea and Ballyturk), I get to do my weekly run along The Southbank with views like the below, Downing Street and Trafalgar Square are on my bus route and I can be at the glorious Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park after just one twenty minute bus journey. Living the dream I tell you, living the dream.
What about you - what country/city would you love to visit?
Amazing three places and how lucky you are to live in London and were in New Zealand for a couple of weeks!! I haven't been to any of those but they all three are on my bucket list!ReplyDelete
I hope one day you get to visit all of these places too! London and New Zealand really are amazing places - shout if you do go and need any tips! Thanks for popping by. xxxDelete

Wow, New Zealand looks amazing!!! And yes, London is fantastic! I miss it! I visited 2 summers in a row and am hooked!ReplyDelete
New Zealand really is amazing - it's like a fairytale land. London is really fantastic isn't it? I'm super lucky, fingers crossed you get to come back soon! Thanks for popping by. xxxDelete
I was just thinking as I walking around London today 'I can't believe I ACTUALLY live here!'ReplyDelete
It's pretty cool isn't it (even with the tube strike hassle)! Thanks for stopping by. xxDelete
How lucky you are to live in London! What a great city. I completely adored Iceland, and I bet you'll love it when you make it there...I can't wait to go back!!ReplyDelete
Fi Evans! I agreed with you that you are very lucky to live in London. It is my most favorite city ever. I have visited it many times. I love to visit its gardens especially Queens Marry Garden and the Colombia road flower market. They are very fascinating places for me. I want to spend my all time there but I never visited New Zealand. After reading your blog I found that it is wonderful place and I should see it. Right now I am going for grand canyon skywalk bus tours next week but after coming back from it I must check out this place.ReplyDelete
