- Edinburgh/Scottish Highlands
- Santorini, Greece
- The Serengeti, Kenya
The only part of Africa I miss is the wildlife and I would so happy to spend two weeks just on safari. Alas, it’s ridiculously expensive but I’m hoping knowing the right people might make it more afforable. Hopefully in 2013.
- Kolmanskop/Sossusvlei, Namibia (The Namib dessert)
Namibia looks amazing. I love the idea of the dessert ghost towns being reclaimed by the dessert – it’s just poignant and beautiful in a way. Completley different and desolate and awesome. I’ve decided that next time I’m due for a visit to SA, I’m not going to stay in Joburg. I’ll head off and see Namibia, Botswana (and the aforementioned Kenya) instead. Why waste the opportunity?
- Tokyo, Japan
Cherry Blossom time! That is my main motivation.
Stunning beaches, dramatic landscapes, laid-back people. What’s not to love about it?
It seems like a fascinating places and a couple of people I know have been there, and loved it. So, hey. Why not?
- Tromsø, Norway (Northern Lights)
Definitely at the top of my bucket list. I want to do this with my mum one year. Somehow, we must make it happen. (Save! Save like the wind!)
- Machu Picchu, Peru
I do love all that ancient wonders stuff and this seems so remote and amazing. I am thrilled to discover there is potential to go in January (um…save like the wind?)
- Canadian Rocky Mountains
Cause I like me some mountains, okay? It’s a toss up between Canada and Alaska for the last spot really, but I’m going with the Rockies cause I’ve always kind of wanted to see them.
Top five places to visit in the US: New York, Chicago, New Orleans, San Francisco, Denver.
Of course, New Zealand will be my main destination next year. Hopefully. It worries me how completely I’ve given my heart to the country… I doubt I’ll ever love another places quite as much as I love it.
