Here’s the top 3 destinations on my bucket list:
1 – Iceland
I’ve been wanting to visit Iceland for a fairly long time – what’s the main reason? The Northern Lights! It would be magical to see this natural phenomenon, but I would go prepared with a time lapse camera in case my eyes let me down!
The rifting apart of the tectonic plates creates plenty of geothermal activity, like the geysers and results in strange, but beautiful landscapes:
Iceland is known for its stunning waterfalls, and is also a location for some of the colder climes shot in Game of Thrones (I know I did say I’m a geek!).
To warm up after all the traipsing around in the cold beauty, I definitely need to visit the famous geothermal Blue lagoon. The water is meant to be a naturally healing as well as warm, and the location looks gorgeous:
2 – Cuba
3 – India
Now that a work friend is getting married later this year, the dream to visit may become a reality!
As India is such a large country, you either need lots of time (month(s)?) or several trips to see the diverse sides. If I go this year I would be heading to Delhi, and the attractions immediately around, as part of the Golden Triangle including Agra and Jaipur.
The beaches of Goa, only a 2.5 hour flight away, are also a draw in the dark UK winter months!
First stop in Agra would be the Taj Mahal, the famous symbol of love
I think everyone has to get a picture in front of the reflecting pools!
Then on to Jaipur – the pink city – named after its pink stone buildings, including the Amber Fort. Jaipur is also known for its bazaars – great for shopping!
Also here is where you can find the magical floating palace or Jai Mahal (water palace), another architectural gem.
Another key reason I want to visit India is for the food!
Finally Goan beaches and Goan food – lots of seafood and coconut, just to mix things up and for a final relaxing time!
