I am incredibly lucky. I have traveled a fair amount in my life already, it’s a love I have inherited from my parents and they have shown me so much of the world already. The thing about traveling is the more you see, the more you want to see.
I am completely wrapped up in my upcoming trip to Varkala, in the Kerala region of India. I’m old school. I have my Lonely Planet guide and a notebook filled with scribbles of what to pack, what to see and what I still need to organise.
Like the visa I keep forgetting to apply for.
And I work and play in the digital world, so inevitably I spend a lot of time online doing my research. And when you hang out on Pinterest travel accounts and Trip Advisor and Airbnb long enough, things start to catch your eye. Photos and reviews and beautiful treehouse accomodation.
So I’ve put together a list of my top ten dream trips, starting (of course) with India.
30.11.2013 – 12.12.2013
To see the cherry blossoms, the lights, the design, one hundred types of KitKat and the bagelheads.
Shela Beach, Kenya
Where donkeys and camels are the only form of transport and fisherman fish in colourful doha’s.
Turquoise waters that let you see right through to the sand below. Winding white stairs that lead you from one traditional door to the next and a chapel set atop a cliff.
New York, New York
The city of dreams.
St Petersburg, Russia
Culture and opulence and colourful architecture.
Incredible architecture, for that old school European feel.
Koh Rong, Cambodia
This place is nicknamed Paradise for a reason.
San Francisco, USA
The art and design, the hills and the trams and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Lush forests and salmon jumping out of lakes. Snow and ice and the romance of small town America.
