My Holiday WIshlist

Simon and I haven't been on a proper holiday for 3 years!  Needing to dedicate ourselves fully to buying our first house and budgeting for our wedding hasn't left many spare pennies for overseas holidays.

Obviously we are hoping to make up for it later this year with a well deserved Honeymoon, but before we start planning that I can't help but dream a little about maybe booking a last minute holiday somewhere hot and sunny for some much needed rest and relaxation before the wedding takes over.

I've not really done much travelling at all with Simon, in fact we've only been abroad together once, when we made a trip to Rhodes in 2013 so we really do have some catching up to do. 

I love this list of the world's most romantic destinations but I also have my heart set on taking Simon to some of the places I've already travelled to.


I went on a fantastic adventure to Australia with my friend Sarah 9 years ago (where did that time go?).  We visited my half sister in Melbourne before moving on to Sydney.  Flying to the other side of the world was a dream and is something I'd love to share with Simon one day.  I'd love to take him to Phillip Island to see the famous penguin parade, fly over the Twelve Apostles in a helicopter and I know he'd love the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb.


One of the most romantic countries in the world, I loved exploring Rome, Florence, Pisa and Venice and I'd love to go back.  Simon would enjoy the pizza and gelato (it just doesn't taste the same anywhere else in the world), and I'd love to take a gondola ride with him in Venice.  Could a holiday be any more romantic?


Paris, the city of love and somewhere that I loved visiting when I went a few years ago. The delicious food and gorgeous architecture made me feel like I was travelling around inside a painting, it was just so picture perfect. 

Los Angeles

I've been to America twice and both visits were to LA.  In a way I feel like I have "been there, done that" but I know that Simon would love exploring the TV sets, experiencing the American culture and eating loads of burgers.  I'm pretty sure if I asked him, LA would be top of his destination list.

Heads out of the clouds and back to reality!  Where should we go on our last minute holiday?


  1. France every time for me! I just love it! You've been to some fab places though :)

    1. I'd love to go to the South of France, definitely!

  2. Oh I would love to visit Iceland but I think that would take a bit of planning so for a last minute holiday I would have to say the Italian lakes - they look idyllic!

    I can see Simon living it up in LA :D

    1. OMG yes the Lakes in Italy, gorgeous! Simon and I will definitely be adventuring to the US at some point, he needs to go (and I need a trip to New York, or maybe Vegas!)

  3. Oooh I hope you decide on the perfect place.
