Travel Activities: Surfing

Surfing was something I had always wanted to try, but I had just never got around to it. When I was on the East Coast of Australia, however, it finally seemed my time had come to give it a try. After all, you should always get down with the locals- in this case, the Aussie surfer dudes.

5 Places I’d Love to Revisit

There are so many places in the world that I want to go to and I’m pretty sure that there’s not enough time for me to see them all. That said, sometimes I just want to go back to somewhere I’ve already been to. I mean, if it’s good- why wouldn’t you?

Vasudha Aggarwal from Travel Defined and Monika Moreva from Two and a Half Bloggers (two fellow travel bloggers who I seriously recommend you check out if you haven’t already) nominated me for this post. Basically, this is an idea by “ – Top Destinations to Go There” which involves bloggers picking the top five places they would love to go back to. I also have to link back to the original post and nominate five people to carry it on. Seems like a great idea to me so lets go: Continue reading “5 Places I’d Love to Revisit”

It turns out, that out of the 981 preserved cultural and natural landmarks, I have been to 25. Only 956 to go then- I may complete my Seven Wonders list first: Continue reading “My UNESCO List”

My seven wonders of the world

Bucket List number 43: see the seven wonders of the world. 

I think that this is probably a regular feature on bucket lists: Christ the Redeemer, Petra, the Great Wall of ChinaChichen Itza, the Taj Mahal and Machu Picchu with either the Pyramids of Giza or the Colosseum taking the last place. With the exception of the latter I haven’t been to any.  Continue reading “My seven wonders of the world”

My top four places to relax

I don’t know about you, but on a day to day basis, I find relaxing hard. There is always something to stress about. Travelling is the time to escape that but even then there are still worries. Do you still have your passport? Will your debit card be accepted? What time does the bus leave?

Here are my top four places where I’ve actually managed to get close to stress free.
