This is a post I’ve been wanting to write for a while and it’s all about my favourite holiday destinations. While they might be fairly predictable I’m going to share my reasons for why I love each one. Don’t worry, there’s only three and I’ve made sure the post isn’t too photo heavy by linking to the appropriate photo diaries where you can view all my holiday snaps.
I’ve been going on holiday to France since I was about 5 and I want to keep going back. We went to Nice for my mother in laws birthday a few years ago as she lives over there but in a different part of France. I loved the sunshine and being a short train journey away from so many other places but if you’re pale skinned like me do no go in August – you will burn yourself death.
The best bit about going to Nice is the fact that there are private beaches (in sections along the Promenade des Anglaise) where you can hire a lounger or a bed for the day and relax. The only problem is deciding what to wear when you head to the beach but this site has a huge choice of women’s swimwear which wouldn’t look out of place in Nice. When we were there I was wearing a bikini that I’d bought from Matalan a couple of years before meaning it didn’t quite fit properly but I will definitely be checking out new swimwear for when we head there back there.
We also stayed just outside Cahors in the Lot region this year – here’s the photo diary – which I loved as it was an area I’d never been to before but also meant we could head north to the Dordogne which is an area I do know and wanted to see again.
Last year we went to New York for 6 days and I wish I’d been there longer. The list of things I still want to do is huge and even though I know how much walking I’ll end up doing I know it’ll be worth it. What I loved about New York is that even though the island of Manhattan is quite frankly huge, getting around was much easier than I thought it would be. We did a lot of walking as we were there in June and it was roasting but we also used yellow cabs which weren’t as expensive as I thought they would be. New York is one of those cities that I truly feel has something for everyone and you’ll leave as knackered as we did.
I will never stop loving London as a holiday destination. So much so that we’re heading back for a week next August. I’ve already started planning what I want to do while we’re there and I’m getting very excited. The last few times I’ve been down it’s been for one night or maybe two so a week will mean we can get more done. Usually, we’re prioritising the important things to get done – shopping mainly – but there are so many things to see and places to eat that I’m fairly certain a week may not actually be enough to do it all.
