I’m scared of planes.
I’m scared of boats.
I’m scared to cycle on roads.
I’m uncomfortable in fast vehicles.
Yeah, I’m a giant baby. Travelling isn’t something that’s high on my to-do list. Not out of want, but because the act of travelling to the holiday destination is likely to ruin the entire experience completely. I’m happy sticking to my British holidays – there are plenty of places around the UK that are beautiful, cultural, exciting, relaxing and until I’ve explored them all I can’t imagine a British holiday would bore me. Me and Matt love to explore, and even though we don’t drive, in the past couple of years we’ve visited some lovely places.
That doesn’t mean I’m not going to try! If you’ve had a read through my 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge, you’ll have noticed there are a couple of holidays abroad (Italy and Bruges) that I’m hoping to experience before the challenge is over!
So, combining my love of lists, organisation, exploring and natural beauty, here are my dream holiday destinations – in order of likeliness:
Most likely simply because if I could travel anywhere in the world, it happens to be Italy. Lake Garda or Giardini Naxos – somewhere with sun, mountains, the sea and views. Rome or Venice – somewhere with enough history that I couldn’t possibly fit it all into a week holiday. I’m getting all excited just thinking about it!
Starting to get unlikely now, but I did manage to fly to Tunisia (as horrifying as the flight was) and the distance from the UK to Iceland doesn’t seem unrealistically longer. I’d love to travel to see the northern lights – that’s a lifetime experience! Even more reasons… it sounds perfect – 28 reasons to visit Iceland.
7. New Zealand: Impossible…
8. Canada: More impossible…
9. Hawaii: Even more impossible…
You can go anywhere, all expenses paid. Where would you go?
