What Are Some Of The Best Travel Experiences You’ve Had?

09 Aug 2016

I’ve often come towards the end of a trip and noticed that before I even get home, I start thinking about where I want to travel to next. Do you do that too?

And the more I tick off the ever expanding bucket list, the larger it seems to grow.

Every trip has taught me something, opened my eyes to a new culture, a new cuisine and produced some hilarious, outrageous and unforgettable stories. But for me, it’s not necessarily the oldest temple or the highest mountain, or the most ornate church that makes an experience amazing. Sometimes a trip stands out for much simpler reasons. It can be because of a connection you made or an animal interaction you’ve had. Or maybe you’ve just experienced the prettiest sunset you’ve ever seen.

Now I’d like to hear from you.

What are YOUR best experiences from your travels?

I’d love to hear what they were and why they were so memorable in the comments box at the end of this page. I look forward to reading all your comments and publishing a post on all those amazing experiences so that we can all add further to our bucket lists.


Peace and wanderlust,

Ha! I have that terrible habit too!! Always planning the next before you finish (or even go on) the first… I’ve got to say that’s a pretty hard question to answer, there are always so many. I’m currently writing about an experience I had when we stumbled upon a Shinto temple in a residential area of Tokyo. When we entered, just to have a squiz, a little old Japanese lady popped out and what followed was the most personalised, informative and wonderful tour of a Japanese Shinto temple. It was such a heartwarming salve to our battered senses (after experiencing… Read more »
