I genuinely believe that travel is one of the best things one can possibly do. A good friend once told me” Travel is the one thing you pay for that can truly change your life.”I honestly couldn’t agree more. I have managed to compile a list of my go-to places and a small blurb of what I would do if I went. Hopefully, this inspires people to head out and try something new!

South Africa has been at the top of my list for an incredibly long time! Not only is it stunning and rich with history and culture, but it is also home to some of my best friends. We have already come up with a little plan of all the places we are going to go to. Obviously, the first thing we want to do is hike up Table Mountain and take in the beautiful view of the cape. If we are still up to it, we may even try and conquer Lion’s Head as well. The peaks of those two mountains are the ideal spot for a little picnic lunch and chill. Another place we would go is The Kirstenbosch Garden. Kirstenbosch is a beautiful Botanical Garden located right next to Table Mountain. We would then take a day to travel through the Garden Route to George in the Western Cape province. We will visit the vast beaches that bring stunning views and make for the best road trips. Finally, one of our final destinations would be Hermanus. Hermanus is the whale watching capital of South Africa. It’s located just south of Cape Town, also in the Western Cape Prov. as well.
Amsterdam has been one for those cities that I’ve just been longing to learn more about. I have been to Amsterdam before, but I don’t think a 7-hour layover counts as actually seeing the city. If I were to go, it would be canal tours galore !! I cannot stress how many Amsterdam travel vlogs I’ve watched, but one thing that has stood out is that the canals are absolutely stunning. The restaurant scene looks pretty great as well. As a person who could honestly eat for a living, I would love to try out lots of different restaurants. In all honesty, I think that food and trying different meals is incredibly necessary when it comes to getting to know an area. The restaurant culture is also very diverse, so no matter where you are, your experiences will differ.
Spain is one of those places where you just HAVE to go. I know lots of people who have been and absolutely loved it. Even though The beaches of the Southern Coast are stunning id love to visit the mountainous parts of the North. Although the Catalan Region has been experiencing significant differences with Spain, I would still love to visit it. One of the places I would go is Park Güell. It is located on the top of the Carmel Hill in Barcelona. The park is filled with lots of greenery and of course beautiful architecture. The buildings are decorated with colourful glass bits, which place emphasis on their red backgrounds. The second place I would visit would be Alcázar of Seville. Alcazar of Seville is a royal palace that was built in the 16th century. In 1931 it was declared a UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage site. The Palace is filled with fountains and arches that mimic the 1700s art. Lastly, I would visit Alhambra Palace, another gorgeous place. The red palace is located right next to Granada, a city in Spain. It is located at the top of a hill, and the most recommended method of transport is by foot so that you can take in the artistic aspects.
Thanks so much for reading! I hope this has inspired you to go out and travel! Travelling doesn’t mean spending thousands of dollars to go across the world. You can learn by even travelling to different places around you.
Hope you enjoyed
