Dreaming of Getting Away

This cold has completely knocked me for six (....is that the saying?). It's got to the point now where my nose is no longer blocked, but I cannot taste or smell anything. When I say anything, I mean ANYTHING. It's made me lose my appetite completely, which is weird for me because I love food.

It's made me all under the weather and sad, so in this time I have been longing to get away, go somewhere nice.

Luckily, my boyfriend has agreed we can go away to Paris, and I am SO EXCITED. Actually, 'excited' is a complete understatement. I haven't been out of this country (UK) since 2008, and watching everybody else on their summer adventures these past few years has given me serious wanderlust. 

I want to see so much of the world, and who better to see it with than my boyfriend. 

Seeing as I haven't travelled anywhere in almost a decade (WHAT!), I'm gathering a list of places I want to visit before I get too much older. Am I being optimistic with having all of these on my list? Probably... Ah well!

1. The Maldives

There's one place in particular I really want to visit in The Maldives - Mudhdhoo Island. 

Look how awesome that is! Bioluminescent phytoplankton (thanks google) cause the edges of the water to glow. The phytoplankton react to any sort of stress or tension, which causes them to emit light (aka glow). How gorgeous would that be to watch, with a little cocktail in hand? Lovely.

2. New York City

Pretty easy option, I know. Who doesn't want to visit New York? I just want to visit America in general, but New York is top of my list. Strolling around Central Park with an ice cream. That's the dream.

3. Disney World, Florida

I know I already mentioned about going to Paris, AND we're visiting Disney Land there. But holy moly I need to go to Disney World in Florida. It seems like such a magical place and I am so sad I haven't been already. Like I said when I was talking about New York, I want to visit America in general, but Florida is near the very top of my list. 

4. Tenerife

There is one sole reason I want to go back to Tenerife, and that is for the water park. When I went back in 2008, this was being built and they were advertising it everywhere. Now it's there, I need to go back so that I can go here. I was so sad I didn't get to go there before!

5. Venice

Venice has always been somewhere I wanted to travel to when I'm older. I think it looks like such a romantic place, rowing along the rivers on gondolas and taking in the atmosphere. And now I have someone incredible to share that with, so all the more reason to go! 

So that's my top 5. This list constantly changes every time I come to think of it, so writing them down in a blog post will be nice to come back to in a little while and see if anything has been changed. 

Right now, though, I would take a flight to anywhere! I'm not picky!!

Where's your favourite place to travel to?
