The most recent 52 week blog challenge post I wrote was one of my favourites being the top 5 places I’d like to travel and I’m v. v. excited as todays prompt is again on the topic of travel – this time being My Favourite Holiday.
Be prepared because this post could get rambly as I’ve been fortunate enough to go on quite a few wonderful holidays, from America to Magaluf to Amsterdam, I couldn’t possibly pick just one favourite.
So let me talk about my top 3.
The three I mentioned above. America, Magaluf and Amsterdam.
Back when I was 15, I visited the USA with my parents and brother and we had the most adventurous time together. We explored so much as although our base hotel was located in Anaheim, California, we also road tripped to Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Arizona and Mexico. I was blessed enough to have some amazing experiences during those two weeks with my family with the highlights being staying in the New York, New York hotel in Vegas, seeing the natural wonder that is the Grand Canyon, falling in love with Arizona and taking a helicopter ride around LA. Not forgetting either seeing the walk of fame, lazing in bed watching the Disney Channel every morning eating doughnuts, playing Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez albums on a loop whilst we road tripped and generally just having epic fun with my family. When I look back I realise just how lucky I am to have parents who took me on such a wonderful adventure and who have allowed me to see and experience so much of the world. I am so thankful for the adventures we have shared and continue to share together – ALSO this was my first and only holiday abroad with my brother, how crazy is that?? It was great to get to spend more quality time with him and I’m so happy he got to experience the USA with me.
Magaluf with the girls last year has to go down as another of my favourite holidays because it was just so much fun, with so many new experiences, laughter upon laughter and parties 24/7 I wish I could go back with the girls right now. Emily, Chantal and I had the best time together in Magaluf and we made the best of memories to last a life time, every time I think about this holiday I’m filled with such happiness and love for my besties. Some of the highlights of the holiday have to include ‘Freshers Night’, experiencing a Booze Cruise for the first time ever and Parasailing with Chantal. For sure one of the funniest memories from the holiday just has to be the TOWEL THIEF. Hahaha, such good times. The girls and I are thinking about returning to Magaluf again next year so all I can say is roll on Summer 18.
Last but by no means least has to be the city break I took to Amsterdam last year with my best friend Emily. The few days we spent in Amsterdam were honestly some of the best of my life, Emily and I had such a brilliant time together and we really explored and experienced so much. Visiting the Anne Frank House was by far the highlight of the trip, as it was so moving and insightful and I feel so incredibly blessed that I got to visit such an important, historical place. I would go again tomorrow if I could and I’d highly recommend a visit there if you’re ever in ‘Dam. God bless Anne Frank. Other highlights of the trip include visiting Madame Tussauds, having all the fun at the fair and chilling in the Ice Bar which was literally so cool. Amsterdam definitely ranks high up as one of my favourite places in the world (plus they do the best Nutella waffles I’ve ever tasted) and I can’t wait to go back, I’m just so thankful I got to visit last year with my best friend and make so many wonderful memories with her! Thank you Emily for being my ultimate travel buddy.
This year I have two big holidays planned and one weekend break away so I am really looking forward to those, I’m positive they could even end up surpassing the trips I mentioned above as my new favourite holidays. Time will tell…
