Time to explore 

I suffer with terrible wunderlust – I’m always plotting where to go next and dreaming of far away shores…it doesn’t have to be far away, just not the town in which I live to be honest! 
This little picture I saw on Twitter really stood out (if it’s yours & I owe you a credit please shout!)

I’ve been fortunate to travel to several places in my lifetime both for holidays and for work (in my previous life) and my travels have taken me to Australia, New York, LA, Dubai and then European places like Majorca (I spent a summer in Magaluf in my youth!), Sorrento, Sofia, family holidays in Spain and Santorini to name a few.

My current list of places to visit include:

Las Vegas

Over-the-top, round-the-clock, bright and glitzy – these are what I think of when someone says Las Vegas to me!!  We’re planning on a trip in 2017 for John’s “special” birthday.   We haven’t really looked into it too much as yet – John has been before and he’d like to stay somewhere super special so any recommendations welcome!

South Africa

I’d really love to visit Cape Town, Table Mountain, the wine regions and drive along the Garden Route.   Not sure about doing a safari in SA – if I was going to do one, I’d like to go to Kenya as my Dad lived there when he was little.  I tried to put this on our honeymoon hit list but John didn’t have the burning desire to go so it was put on the back burner for the future!


Everyone I know who’s been here love it! The golden beaches and the turquoise waters and of course Thai Green curry…my favourite!  I don’t think there’s any particular place I’d like to see, I just know I’d like to go and do a multi-centre holiday so you see a couple of places in one trip.


 We went to Sorrento in 2014 and loved everything about it. I’ve been to Italy on 2 other occasions and I love the food, the wine and the culture. There’s so many places to see (Rome, Florence, Milan, Tuscany, the lakes) that I’ve added Italy as a whole, otherwise it could turn to a Italy travel wunderlust post!


I’ve seen a couple of fellow bloggers have been here over the last year or so for a long weekend and it’s not somewhere I’d ever really heard of or considered.  The Lonely Planet website describes it as “a colourful tumbledown dream with medieval relics, soaring bell towers, extravagant baroque churches and stately beaux-arts buildings piled on top of one another, illuminated by streaming shafts of sun”.


Where’s on your wanderlust hit list?!
