I’ve snorkelled with clown fish in the Great Barrier Reef, kayaked in Halong Bay, seen lions, elephants and cheetahs up close on the African plains, interrailed around Europe, river safari-ed in Malaysia, sunbathed on beautiful Thai beaches, skydived, road-tripped, trekked through rainforests and up mountains, and camped in the Australian outback. And I can’t wait to see even more of the world!
Here’s a rundown of what’s made it onto my list so far…
See the ‘big five’ in their natural habitat on a safari game drive in one of Africa’s stunning national parks, trek through the desert landscape of Namibia, experience the moving history of South Africa in beautiful Cape Town…Africa is a destination for wildlife lovers, adventure seekers and ultimately those after a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience.
From major cities to the Amazon rainforest, the Americas, divided into two major cultural regions, is so diverse that it’s hard to define as one continent. Whether it’s natural beauty, scenery, wildlife and nature or buzzing cultural hubs that you’re after, the Americas definitely holds something unique for every type of traveller.
Deemed the ‘cradle of civilisation’ as we know it today, Asia and the Middle East holds a rich history and vibrant culture. From cosmopolitan cities to deserted beaches to lush mountain scenery, a fascinating merge of East and West and a unique mix of old and new come together to create a cultural region quite unlike any other.
Comprised of over 50 countries, Europe is the perfect combination of buzzing cities and stunning coastlines and natural scenery. Such a variety means that there is so much to discover and it is the ideal destination for any type of travel from beach holidays to active interrailling to short city breaks.
A beautiful and diverse continent featuring some of the world’s most stunning coastlines and beaches, mountain ranges, national parks and natural scenery, as well as one of the most agreeable climates on earth. Comprising of Australia, New Zealand, the island of New Guinea and neighbouring islands in the Pacific Ocean, you will have to experience for yourself the true beauty of this region of the world in order to believe it.
