My Top 5 Holiday Destinations

I love travelling. Journeying the UK and the world, learning more about my country of birth and the countries and cultures beyond. I am not a seasoned traveller by any stretch of the imagination, but before my children came along I was certainly a compulsive holidayer. I often think about holidays that we’ve had and holidays that we hope to have. With this in mind, I thought I would share some of my favourites so far with you.

It’s hard to choose my all time favourite holiday destinations but, if pressed, my top five (in no particular order) would be:

1. Zurich, Switzerland

We travelled to Zurich for a long weekend and I loved it. My first time in Switzerland, we soaked up the city atmosphere and ventured the short distance up Uetliberg to take in the views. It was utterly delightful. We also journeyed further out and into the picturesque mountains. A trip I certainly won’t forget!

2. New Zealand

We went to the South Island of New Zealand for our honeymoon and I totally fell in love with it. My husband has family over there which made it even more special, but the culture and picturesque scenery captured my attention. We are saving hard so that we can take our boys there one day.

3. Cobh, Ireland

My first trip to Ireland came in my twenties, and was to the wonderful Cobh. I’ll never forget Fota Island Wildlife Park, the Blarney Stone, or disappearing into the depths of a cave on my 25th birthday.

4. Newport, Pembrokeshire, Wales

The beaches, the lovely community. This holiday was where we made the decision to start trying for a family, and will be forever in my heart. We ventured to Whitesands Bay and St Davids during this holiday too, which are both well worth a visit.

5. Elounda, Crete

The history, the beaches, the Samaria gorge walk which claimed two toe nails. We spent two relaxed weeks here and were made to feel so welcome by the locals, who were very supportive of my desire to learn the Greek language!

Where’s your favourite place to visit? I’d love to hear from you!

I’ve been to Switzerland (but not Zurich) and Newport! These places sound wonderful and I would absolutely love to visit New Zealand! My favourite holiday destination is the west coast of Florida. Wonderful beaches, calm seas and lovely people. We visited Naples, Florida last Summer and can’t wait to go back! #blogstravaganza

New Zealand was magical. I have yet to visit the USA. Sounds as though I will have to add the west coast of Florida to my bucket list for when I go!

I haven’t been to any of these places, they all look great! #Blogstravaganza

I can definitely recommend adding them to a holiday list!

My all time favourite place is St Ives, Cornwall! I love it! Ireland is somewhere where I’ve been wanting to go for a while, maybe 2018 is our year to finally go! Thanks so much for sharing with #Blogstravaganza xx

It’s been ages since I’ve been to Cornwall, thanks for the reminder! Perhaps that will have to go on our 2018 holiday list 😉 xx

We love Pembrokeshire and New Zealand is on my bucket list. Personally I’ll always have a soft spot for Northern California, but then we did get engaged and married there. #blogstravaganza

I’ve never been there, but travelling around the States including visiting friends in California is on my bucket list!
