My initials on my passport….fancy. How cute is my little snow globe from Paris?!
Père Lachaise Cemetery – I know a lot of people probably feel this way but I don’t find cemeteries eerie and actually find them to be really relaxing. I think there’s something quite comforting about a beautiful cemetery. I remember visiting a cemetery with columbarium walls in Tenerife when I was younger and being fascianted by it. When I visit Paris at the end of March, I want to have ticked visiting the Père Lachaise cemetery, which is the largest cemetery in the city of Paris and is also Oscar Wilde’s place of burial, off of my list.
Penang’s Street Food & Flea Markets – If I could live off one cuisine for the rest of my life, it would be that of South-east Asia and I would love to experience their authentic Laksa Lemak which is like poached fish and noodles in a fish bone and coconut broth and Udang Galah Redang which is a dish made up of giant shrimps cooked in a really hot and spicy paste.
Auschwitz – Most couples go on a nice, relaxing beach holiday together but we’ve decided that as a joint birthday present, we’re going to visit Auschwitz which may seem absurd to some people but beach holidays just aren’t something I’m interested in and for me, it’s something I’ve always wanted and felt the need to do, to form some sort of comprehension of the atrocities committed at Auschwitz.
Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina – this place is like a real life fairytale-esque postcard. I’d love to spend a day near The Old Bridge (google it, seriously!) and I would love to visit Bosnia’s Kravice Waterfalls.
Stockholm – The ultimate ‘stylish city’. I think Stockholm is on the cards for a trip this year! Gamla Stan looks absolutely stunning and I love the idea of walking through the medieval cobbled streets. The restaurants look pretty good too and I’ve never really experienced Swedish food before.
The BIG wanderlust dream – Africa. I’ll save that one for when I’m older and have a lot more money to spare! For now, I’ll stick with the five above which are more only-20-years-old friendly.
