5 Places I Want to Revisit

1. Florida
I am going back to Florida with my family this year! Squueee! Much excitement! Click here for photos from last time! I wasn't so keen on Disney but I loved Universal and I can't wait to see the new Harry Potter section which has been added since I went the first time. Highlights: everything Harry Potter obvs and the restaurant called Mythos in Universal (the salmon is fab, and it's one of the only places I could find decent food).

2. Menorca
Unfortunately I don't really remember Menorca. I don't even remember what part we went to or where we stayed. We went something like seven times?! Every year, to the same resort! They knew us pretty well there haha. My housemate has been there too and remembers it well and was telling me I should go again, so I really would like to, according to her it's beautiful! Highlights (of what I can remember): delicious coffee ice cream oh my stars and possibly the hottest sun I've been under.

3. Madrid, Spain
I went to Madrid on a school trip for Art quite a few years ago in October so it was a bit chilly, we visited lots of galleries, and parks. We also visited markets and were allowed quite a bit of freedom to roam around the area. I'd love to go again with friends or family to explore more and further from the area surrounding the hostel we stayed in. Highlights: some of the friendliest people (despite the hand bag snatchers trying to literally rooting through my friends bag as it was sat next to her in a cafe!) served us in the restaurants and I loved visiting the art galleries in a new country (although the staff at some of the galleries were not nice at all).
We also took a coach to Toledo which I always forget I visited!

4. Paris, France
I know this isn't Paris but I couldn't find a photo from when I was there, so here is a photo I took in Bordeaux...
Am I allowed to say Bordeaux as well and add it into my little trip? I loved Bordeaux so so much, it's one of my favourite places! I would choose to visit Paris again over Bordeaux though 'cos I can hardly remember Paris and because I went with my school when I was 11 we obvs had to go everywhere with the teacher. Highlights were: meeting David Hasslehof on the Eiffel Tower and Park Asterix.

5. New York
Where do I even start?! New York is just a dream! I went for my 18th birthday with my mam in the summer holidays for a few days. We went to the top of the Empire State building, despite everyone telling us to skip cos the queues are huge (we barely queued and bought tickets when we got there), strolled around Central Park, shopped, went to Times Square and saw Lion King, and tried to get our head around the restaurants. I want to go back and do museums and art galleries, and Brooklyn! We only did a bus tour of Brooklyn, and of Chinatown, I wanna visit there too! Highlights: how easy it is to find your way around! I have never felt so secure in a city to be honest, walking home alone at night with my mam I felt a lot safer than I thought I would, and seeing The Lion King, something I've always wanted to see in a big theatre.

Have you visited any of these places? What did you think of them and what were your highlights? Anywhere you'd like to visit again? Tell me in the comments, the sun is inspiring me to think of travelling! xo
