My Most Amazing Travel Experiences

I have been fortunate to go to lots of beautiful places over the years, but there are some experiences I have had that will stay with me forever…

  • Visiting the ruins of Palenque, Mexico first thing in the morning before the masses arrived and with the mist still hanging low over the forest.

  • Watching the sunset over beautiful Rio de Janeiro from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain.

  • Seeing a pod of dolphins jumping and swimming alongside our boat in The Maldives.

  • Taking a 4WD trip into the desert in Dubai, then watching the sun setting whilst riding a camel over the sand dunes.

  • Night canoeing in the Amazon – hearing the sounds of the jungle in the darkness was incredible, if slightly unnerving!

  • Going on a two week road trip round Scotland. There were stunning mountains and lochs wherever you looked.

  • Visiting the Abuko Nature Reserve in The Gambia. It was tranquil and beautiful, but teeming with wildlife.

  • Camping at Souter Lighthouse before the Great North Run – such a stunning location to wake up in… even if I did then have to get up and run 13.1 miles!

  • Watching a rocket blast off into space from Cape Canaveral Airforce Base in Florida – an amazing experience and probably not one I will ever have again.

  • Flying back from New York first class – it’s certainly a whole different experience to travelling economy!

  • Looking out over NYC from Top of the Rock – what a fantastic view of the City!

  • Skiing in Courchevel… such a lovely resort and with stunning views of Mont Blanc as you head down the pistes.

  • Visiting the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. Beautiful architecture, covered in intricate Moorish patterns and with a great view of Granada to boot.

  • Sailing to the Channel Islands was an incredible experience – I felt like an explorer setting off on a round-the-world voyage!

  • Spending Christmas at Center Parks in the Lake District and waking up on Christmas Day to a snow-covered forest and frozen lake.

And, hopefully, I will have even more amazing experiences to add to this list in the future…

    Wow you’ve been to some incredible places! I couldn’t even say which one looks the most amazing, what beautiful photos too. Night canoeing around the Amazon must have been a little scary! I came back from Peru in July and we went out around 3am on our boat and speeding down the river in the early hours was pretty frightening but amazing too!

      Thank you – I know I’ve been very lucky! Night canoeing was slightly eerie, but incredible at the same time…
