There are so many places in the world I would really love to visit. I just want to pack my bags and go and explore the world, so I thought I would start doing monthly roundups of my travel wishlists, with somewhere worldwide, somewhere in Europe and somewhere closer to home every time to help my wanderlust. So here goes...
Cuba looks and sounds like such an amazing place - The food, the culture, the stepping back in time to the 50s. I think it would be an amazing place to explore and be so fun to drive a Cadillac! I have a thing about cadillacs and when I was younger that was always my ambition, to own one with a complete front seat - very Grease! I would like to experience the electric atmosphere, music and the fun loving nature of the people too. I love the idea of being able to dance the night away in a little salsa club, drinking rum and mojitos and then walking on gorgeous white sandy beaches the next day, exploring the old colonial buildings and taking the Hershey train out of the city.
2. Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon was not somewhere high up my bucket list of places to visit, but a few friends have been recently and say it is a stunning and beautiful city for a weekend break, so now I really want to go. The old town looks so interesting with its windy little cobbled streets, with beautiful views over the sea and using the old trams to explore the city would be a lot of fun.
3. Mull and Iona, Scotland
Mull and Iona have great nostalgic memories for me, as my Dad used to take me and my wee brother with him sometimes during the summer holidays when he had work trips. I remember the beauty of the islands but I would really like to go back and explore now I am older. I like the idea of long walks, ending up in a little pub for drinks and food after a day enjoying the gorgeous scenery, visiting the brightly painted Tobermoray and getting the ferry across to Iona to wander around the historic abbey.
