Travel has always had a huge place in my heart. I am by no means the most travelled person on the world but I have been some places. I am always saying to Liam “Oh we should go there” or “That looks like a nice place to go”. Needless to say, I want to see some places and I’m so lucky to have found someone to bring along with me. Since getting with Liam in 2015, I’ve travelled a lot (as you’d expect from a long distance couple). I’ve been to places both on our beautiful island and off of it. In this post, I’d like to look back on where I’ve been and lust over where I want to go.
WHERE I’VE BEEN
My little Midlander self had never ventured up North before I started going out with a Geordie. Almost instantly, I fell in love with the place. It’s so much different from where I live. I was like ‘Yes, I’d move here’ so fast because it’s just such a lovely place. I especially love Durham Cathedral.
Liam and I took a trip here in 2016 and since then I have been in love with the place. It was our first staycation together so it holds a special place in my heart. I absolutely loved walking around the city. I can’t wait to go back again with him and make loads of new memories. Maybe, even convince him to go on the ghost tour.
Being from the West Midlands, Wales is my go to place for a caravan holiday. It’s always been somewhere I’ve loved going. My Nan bought a caravan in Borth in 2016 and since then I’ve been there loads of times. I’ve really come to love the little place. It’s such a relaxed place and the site we stay on is so lovely.
A lot of my family on my Mom’s side come from Ireland so it’s a place that I’ve always wanted to see. Me and Liam decided to go to Dublin for the Christmas markets in 2017. We went to the Guinness Factory, the shopping centres and a few more museums. I loved Dublin so much, it’s such an interesting place.
This was mine and Liam’s first ever abroad trip. It was also my first time in Turkey and my first proper holiday since 2011 so it was super special. The heat was a little much for me but other than that I loved visiting this new country and I’d love to travel to different part sometime.
WHERE I’M GOING
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS
Ever since watching The Fault in Our Stars, I’ve wanted to go to Amsterdam. I mentioned this in my travel bucket list post a while ago. A few places I’d like to visit in Amsterdam are the Van Gogh Museum, the Bloemenmarkt and the Love Lock Bridge. Because I’m one of ‘those’ people who want to put a lock on the bridge and I won’t apologise for it.
This is a suggestion from Liam but I’d really love to go there too. Since we’ve been together, he’s spoken about visiting Krakow as he’s been there before and he really enjoyed it. When I looked it up, it looked so beautiful and I was won over quickly. I’ve heard that it’s a super cheap place to visit too which is a bonus!
Another suggestion from Liam but somewhere I’ve lusted over going to for absolute ages. Rome is one of my dream destinations. I would love to eat real, authentic Italian food and go to a vineyard. I think one I visit for the first time that I’ll never want to stop going and I am 100% okay with that.
Thank you so so much for reading. I know this post was a little lazy but I’m swarming in deadlines at the moment so I wanted something easy to write up! I hope you enjoyed me lusting over places I’d love to go. Where have you been recent? And where would you love to go? Have a lovely day and stay beautiful.
