My Five favourite travel throwbacks

travelSeeing as it is Thursday, I thought I would show you my top five ( of many!) travel throwbacks.

lantauisland1. Lantau Island, Hong Kong
In my opinion, the best thing about Hong Kong.  After spending a few days in the harsh and busy city, Lantau Island really was a beautiful breath of fresh air. The Ngong ping 360 cable car takes you over mountains and forests to a culturally rich island, home to the Po Lin Buddhist Monastery and the Tian Tan buddha.  A must if you ever visit Hong Kong.


grandcanyon
2. The Grand Canyon, Arizona
We opted for a full day trip from Las Vegas to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon rather than the helicopter trip to the East rim.  Grand adventures are currently the only company that offer a 3 hour guided walk around the Canyons, our guide was so knowledgeable and our group was only around 8 people. The south rim is so much quieter than the East rim and worth the long car journey for a less ‘touristy’ visit.

flightofthegibbon3. Flight of the Gibbon, Chiang Mai
Flight of the Gibbon in Chiang Mai (Northern Thailand) is a Zipline tour through the Thai forest. I am so scared of heights but i found this incredible and it has also been rated the best attraction in Asia.  The site in Chiang Mai also features Asia’s longest single ‘flight’ (800m).


rome
4. Rome, Italy
The culture, the history, the food; Rome is just beautiful. The perfect city for a weekend getaway, so much to explore and so easy (and safe!) to navigate. I cannot wait to go back.


centralpark
5. Central Park, New York City
There is not much more magical than New York City in the snow. Despite the stress of diverted flights and delays due to snow storms, it was worth it for an afternoon in Central Park covered in snow contrasted with clear blue skies behind the skyline. Central Park is a must for a tranquil break away from the busy city.

    Great memories! My favorite memory is: in the Amazon jungle, where I stayed in a small village (just a few houses at a river) and no electricity. So relaxing… 🙂
