Here I’ll list the Top 5 Places I’ve been to before, but would love to visit again.
1. London, England
London never fails to captivate me. Though I’ve been there multiple times before, the thought of going back always warms me – despite the frosty weather there currently. There’s always new places, events, and exhibitions to see, and the vibrant social scene never fails to impress me.
I like it so much that I often tinker with the idea of actually moving there. As a kiwi, it’s quite easy to get a visa, and besides Australia it’s probably the number one place abroad where kiwis move to, so making connections and settling in is relatively smooth. Hmmmmm….. still tinkering….
2. Rome, Italy
I was lucky to spend my birthday in Rome last year, and really I don’t think I could have chosen a better city. Not only is Rome stunningly beautiful, but the nightlife is great, and made for an absolutely incredible night of celebrations with friends.
However, the problem was that we were only in Rome for the weekend, and with a sleep-in being absolutely necessary after my birthday, we weren’t left with a lot of time to see everything. I feel like we had to rush everywhere, in order to see all the main attractions. I would love to spend more time just walking through the streets and admiring the city as a whole.
3. Hoi An, Vietnam
Hoi An is a little bit of paradise in Vietnam, about half way up the coast. It has beautiful Vietnamese architecture, french-inspired food, long white beaches and probably less than half the tourists of similar beachside towns in Thailand or Bali. It’s also super safe and the locals are really friendly. A must stop for anyone in Vietnam.
I’d go back to relax! Taking advantage of daily massages and spas, and putting orders in for more tailor-made clothes than I need – a total holiday destination!
4. Las Vegas, USA
Despite the painful hangovers, the money wasted in casinos and even losing my passport, I would do Las Vegas all over again in a heartbeat.
My friends and I had an incredible time; watching several shows, visiting different casinos, clubs and restaurants, getting bargains in the outlet malls, and drinking more cocktails than I can remember. It was AMAZING.
5. Queenstown, New Zealand
I was lucky to visit Queenstown earlier this year, while I was back in New Zealand renewing my Spanish visa. It was actually my first time down in the South Island ever and it was such a treat! I’m fortunate that my Aunt and Uncle live down there and they were the best host’s I could have asked for; taking me all over the place, and sharing informative facts and news about my own country.
I’d like to go back during the summer to endeavour on some of the awesome walking tracks down there, and see a little more of this gorgeous area.
So what do you think? Have you been to any of these places? Do you agree that they’re worth a second (or third, or fourth) look? What would your top places to revisit be?
I invite these great bloggers to get involved too!
