Our Global Adventure

I’ve always loved holidays and travelling. It’s been something which has been a part of my life ever since I was young which is something I’ll always be grateful to my family for. It’s hard to know where to go next though, as there are so many places i want to go and so many Dan wants to go; finding somewhere we both want to go is proving trickier than we thought. This post is supposed to make things easier by creating a simple list we can work our way through.

We both tried to make a decision about which places we could afford to go to first and try and visit the places we really want to go first. It turns out that between the two of us, we want to go all over the place so it made things even harder to pick somewhere. Neither of us are big fans of beaches so super hot and sunny beach holidays didn’t really make the list for the two of us but colder, potentially snowy climates interest us. Places like Canada and Switzerland are quite high up. Although Bali also features, which Dan isn’t too impressed by I don’t think.

So here goes… the list:

  1. Iceland. We both love the idea of staying in an ice hotel, and star gazing under a backdrop of the Northern Lights. If we time this holiday just right, it’ll be the perfect mix of snow and sights (something for us both to appreciate)!
  2. Canada. A beautifully cold climate (in the winter seasons) and multi cultural cities would be a great place to go for a week or two and travel from city to city. Plus, you’d have to go and see an ice hockey game if you were going to do it properly. I’ve been to the East side but would love to go the Vancouver and the surrounding areas.
  3. Bali. For a long time, a trip to Bali has been something I’ve hoped I’d eventually be able to make happen. I love how different the culture and way of life is. The scenery and different animals also draw me to the island. There is also a really nice looking hotel where you stay in an elephant sanctuary. I REALLY want to stay there.
  4. Switzerland. As you can probably tell, winter is the best time of year I think. So with that in mind, who wouldn’t want to take a trip to a place like Switzerland. The views alone are incredible and the culture is so interesting too. We definitely have to take a trip to that side of Europe. It’s just so fascinating to me.
  5. Interrailing around Europe. So, I know this isn’t a country but it’s a lot easier than listing every place in Europe that I want to visit. The itinerary would feature Prague, Budapest and Krakow to name a few. Traveling around Europe is something I wish I’d done before getting a job, because now we’re going to have to be selective about the routes we take so that we can fit it into 2 weeks. It’d still be a holiday to remember though, and we’d definitely see a lot of the continent.
  6. Florida. I went when I was younger but I’ve always thought it would be fun to go back as an adult. Disney is magic at any age, right? Plus, a trip to America would be an excuse to stock up on Pop Tarts, Milk Duds and all the Twizzlers that I can fit in my suitcase. Oh, and dark chocolate Milky Ways.

So now I guess it’s time to save up for all of these places because it’s sure not going to be cheap to get around them all. It’ll be better to do them in stages though so we can take everything in and savour the experience. That way we can remember it as a large adventure rather than just a big holiday all done at once.

However we do it, we’ll have fun.
