For an 18 year old I am lucky enough to be very well traveled. I love to see new places, experience different cultures and see how other people around the world live. As much as I love getting on. Plane and visiting a Greek island and lying on the beach for two weeks, I love to explore. My ideal holidays are city breaks, jetting off to a foreign place and cramming a load of sightseeing into a few days.
Foreign authentic food is the highlight of any trip, you can eat in Italian and French restaurants here in the UK but you only truly experience the real thing when you’re in the country itself. When I travel I always make it essential that I try the country or city’s local delicacy.
All you have to do is look at my Pinterest to discover the places I most want to visit, so I’ve put together a list of places that I’m desperate to visit. Some of them I’ve already been to at a young age and want to experience again and some of them I’ve only experienced through photos on Pinterest, the pages of a book or through the lives of fictional characters on my favourite TV shows.
I visited New York when I was about ten years old and as much as I had a good time, I wasn’t old enough to appreciate it for what it is. From what I watch on Gossip Girl and Sex and The City New York looks like a magical place full of excitement. I love a vibrant city and there is so much culture in New York, even though it isn’t massive, the city is so alive it appears that there is a never ending amount of new places to find.
Places I want to visit: Central Park in the Winter, Empire State at night, Times Square on New Years Eve, Sex and The City tour, Gossip Girl tour, 5th avenue shopping, Stardust Diner.
Hate to be a loser but the party town in Amsterdam doesn’t interest me, what I am captivated by is the architecture. Amsterdam is probably the city I pin the most on Pinterest, the pictures speak for themselves, the beautiful coloured buildings, the canals, and the abundance of tulips. I want to go to Amsterdam to take a thousand instagramable photos. Finally the Anne Frank house is something I’ve been dying to go to my whole life because I adore her diary and I am so interested in her life.
Places I want to visit: Go on a canal trip, do a bicycle tour around the city, visit Anne Frank’s house.
Country music is my all time favourite music and Nashville is its home. I’ve heard that the Southerners are the nicest people you’ll ever meet and I’d love a bit of southern hospitality. I’d especially want to go to Nashville whilst the CMA festival is on, as that’s when all the biggest country music artists play.
Places I want to visit: CMA fest, Bluebird Cafe, Honky Tonk Highway, Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville Flea Market, Grand Ole Opry
What inspires me to go: Stephanie Perkins books- Anna and the French Kiss, Isla and the happily ever after.
I’ve been to Paris when I was quite young and I visited all the main tourist spots. I’d definitely want to visit the main places such as the Eiffel tower, I really want a selfie with the Eiffel tower, call me cliché. However most of all I want to wear beautiful clothes, stroll the streets of Paris and eat delicious French food.
Places I want to visit: Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées, boat ride around on the river, Palace of Versailles, love locks on the bridge.
