Some people dream of travelling all over the world since being children. I can’t say I’ve ever got the serious travel bug, and I always say I’ve not been to many different countries. Although I have done New Zealand and New York, so along with a few European locations I’ve not done too badly for my travel experience.
But everyone has their own dream places they would love to visit. That fairytale destination that they know would make them go wow.
With a husband who doesn’t take holidays (our last foreign holiday was 7 years ago to Portugal), travelling abroad alone with N feels like too much hard work. But I certainly live through other people’s gorgeous photos on Instagram, blogs and friends who’ve been to stunning places like Iceland for the Northern Lights and Canada for the Grand Canyon.
While there are places I’d love to experience – dancing in Cuba or Argentina would be high on my list, or Boston in the Fall – my fairytale destination would be Petra in Jordan.
I’ve recently spotted a blogger who’d been there on holiday, and it certainly looks achievable with children in tow. I’d have to cope with the hot weather though. For someone who’s not travelled much it probably sounds like a strange place to want to visit.
I have family connections there. My mum lived there as a girl for a few years, I can still remember the photos of her at her school desk in the small airbase schools with mixed classes of all ages. But more than that, my Grandma started the first Brownie pack in Jordan.
But really when you see the beautiful landscapes, the historical and cultural buildings and structures, as well as the red of the desert, I’m sure most people would love to experience it. Add to that the chance to float in the Dead Sea – how magical would that be?
