Where I would go on holiday if I won the lottery
| AD – sponsored post |
I often see the same question being posted on Twitter – where would you go on holiday if you won the lottery and money was no object? And to be honest – it’s almost impossible to answer because my bucket list is so long!
For the purposes of this post though, I’m going to try and narrow it down to just my top five most lusted after destinations. So here’s where I would travel to if I won the lottery…
1. South Africa
Ok, so South Africa has been on my list for a really long time but the country has featured on a couple of TV programmes and that has boosted it even further up my list – Made in Chelsea, The Apprentice and, most recently, Love Island – the winter edition.
I’d love to do some safari drives in the hopes of spotting the big five and see the penguins on the beach, as well as going wine tasting, hiking Table Mountain and have a couple of days exploring Cape Town and the beaches.
2. New Zealand
Following our Australian East Coast road trip a couple of years ago, I’d love to visit the other side of the world again and see how New Zealand compares with Oz. The scenery looks absolutely spectacular and I’d love to do an epic road trip across both the north and south islands taking in Milford Sound, Auckland, Christchurch, Queenstown and the Franz Josef Glacier.
Again I’d love to do lots of hiking here plus watersports like kayaking and paddle boarding.
Everyone seems to be visiting Bali over the last few years and this has given me a serious case of wanderlust. I’d want to live healthily in Bali, drinking smoothies and eating well, plus doing morning yoga on the beach.
Apparently the sunsets in Bali are absolutely unreal so I’d happily watch the sun go down each night with a delicious cocktail.
I’d also like to visit Indonesia’s Gili Islands which just look like total paradise and would be perfect for some much needed rest and relaxation.
Are you seeing a pattern yet? Most of my bucket list destinations revolve around the adventures that I could have in the great outdoors and Canada is no exception. I’d like to do a mixture of exploring the cities and the Canadian countryside. I’d love to do a couple of weeks road tripping through the Rockies, stopping off at Banff, Vancouver, Calgary, Jasper and Whistler.
Quite a few of my friends have been to Iceland but it’s something like I’ve not managed to tick off just yet. I’d like to see the Northern Lights (fingers crossed!…although if I won the lottery, I could just stay until they made an appearance!), swim in the Blue Lagoon, do a volcano tour and go whale watching.
Where would you travel to if you won the lottery? Let me know in the comments.
