Do you ever find yourself daydreaming of places you’d like to be…?
Here is where I ponder of and dream of daily…
Cigars, old cars and Bacardi are just a few of the things you can experience in this beautiful island. As much as I love a city, Cuba is as far away from a concrete jungle as you can get. Perhaps this is why I want to go? As much as I love the digital world, it scares me that I barely look at the sky anymore. My face is glued to my iPhone, iPad and MacBook, pretty much 24/7… I would love to sample some Cuban food, explore the wildlife and take a Salsa lesson or two. Would you?
The closest I have got to Venice is staying at the very impressive Venetian hotel in Las Vegas. As beautiful as it was, I was all too aware that Venice had been brought to me on a plate. Even though I live in London, Europe is practically on my doorstep – I really haven’t explored it much. I’m hoping next year to do more city breaks and explore this uncharted territory that is Venice. Famed as a romantic destination, I reckon Venice is somewhere I would like to visit alone, take a gondola ride, sample the food and explore the spiralling alleys.
Before I start on why I want to explore Rome I should put it out there that it isn’t for pasta. In fact I’m probably one of few people on this planet who doesn’t like it! Rome certainly wasn’t built in a day and that is clearly evident from the beautiful architecture. I’ve always wanted to go to Rome as a child brought up in the Catholic church, something has always fascinated me about this city. If you’re wondering, I am an atheist, but I do believe in some element of spirituality (that’s another post altogether)… I actually recently booked a trip for this December as it was so cheap (under £150) for a weekend and cannot wait to explore. Have you got any tips for places to go in Italy’s capital city?
Fiji to me is the ultimate paradise destination. For now, the closest I can I get to this faraway paradise is drinking an overpriced bottle of Fiji water.
The US has so much to offer and in all honesty I wouldn’t know where to begin. Eventually I do want to live and work there (New York, if you’re wondering, but before (and if)) I do, here are a few places I am itching to go to…
My desire to go to New Orleans was re-ignited whilst watching American Horror Story season three. The French influences on this gorgeous place have made it somewhere truly unique and created it’s own culture. I cannot wait to eat in New Orleans; I mean they have the most amazing seafood, gumbo, jambalaya and SHRIMP. New Orleans not only has a rich and vibrant history, it is home to amazing music and the birthplace of Jazz. I think I’ll be booking my ticket very soon…
I always said I’m not going to Miami until I can wear swimsuit and feel comfortable, so this is going to be a distant dream for the moment. For now I can re-watch Dexter on Netflix to envision what my distant dream might be (just the not being killed part). Miami to me, would probably be another version of Vegas with a hint of Cuban influence and beautiful coastlines. Lets not forget the the clubs, the food and of course the crocodiles.
Is there anywhere you desperately want to go?
Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up. I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
