I’ve just touched down back in London after a just under a week stay in Barcelona alongside my boyfriend. Can you believe I’m British and this is only my first time going to Spain?
I counted, and the trip marks my 13th country visited (outside of England, of course), it’s also the ~29th city I’ve visited, and a couple of these trips being taken multiple times (e.g. Paris, Amsterdam, U.S.). 13 at 22 isn’t bad (I do have a friend that has visited over 30…) – but there’s so much more to see. I’ve never been to Canada, Australia, Asia or the Caribbean – it’s safe to say I have a lot more trips to make. I would without a doubt book another trip away right on this spot, if it didn’t involve having to first look for someone to drag along with me!
Keeping in the summer spirit – I thought I would share a few of my dream holiday destinations…
I first went to Amsterdam back in 2014 with a big group from my university halls. It was a last minute trip thrown together for no reason out that ‘why not?’, and I remember it all as a bit of a blur; not only because it was such a huge group of us, but also because it was so long ago. Since I’ve met my boyfriend, we’ve always said that we wanted to go to Amsterdam. So, as a birthday treat, I thought I would surprise him with tickets to the little town. I contemplated between a two or three day break – but remembered from my last visit that although Amsterdam is fun – there’s not tons to do there, and that two days would suffice. The last time I went to Amsterdam it was blisteringly cold and rainy in February, this time the weather was a lot better, making it a lot more enjoyable, and it was nice to get the chance to go back and soak up the unique city.
