There are some destinations that you visit, and they leave such an impact on you, that the place and the memories from it are forever etched in your heart and mind. Here are some beautiful places that have had that effect on me.
Antigua and Barbuda
The islands of Antigua and Barbuda will always be special to me and a place I would love to visit on my 10 year wedding anniversary, for it was the first long haul destination where Amit and I went for holiday, our first taste of the gorgeous islands in the Caribbean as well as where he went down on one knee and proposed!
I wrote about the proposal as well as why Antigua and Barbuda are special to me here.
Bali has been high on my list for a long time and last year we finally visited, and it was everything I dreamed of and more. From its lush green rice paddy fields to its magnificent waterfalls and stunning temples, it was a place that made me feel so relaxed, at ease and where I truly had a proper break and recharged and rejuvenated. It’s natural beauty just had me in awe and I would love to go back again sooner rather than later.
If you are thinking of visiting Bali, I have written a post on Things to do in Bali, Indonesia.
Paris brings me so much joy – from its pretty cobbled streets, seeing the Eiffel Tower from different parts of the city, and the fresh baguettes, sublime macarons and dining al fresco with red wine and French onion soup to indulge in.
It has been a destination we have ended up visiting almost yearly, and it is always a wonderful experience, happy new memories and we always leave happier.
Paris is somewhere that will always be in my mind and always a place I will visit time and time again.
If you follow me on Instagram, you will see all my nostalgic photos of the postcard perfect beaches, the stunning sunsets as well as an incredible BBQ on board a Catamaran in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Mauritius left an everlasting impact on me and it totally blew me away with how beautiful the island was.
Having been born by the Indian Ocean myself on the island of Mombasa, I sensed a lot of familiarity as well as so much striking difference between the two.
Mauritius is a gorgeous island and one which everyone should have on their bucket list.

Tuscany – what a dreamy Italian hideaway – I have promised myself that one day I will own a farm house overlooking a vineyard in Tuscany as it is literally one of the most peaceful places I have visited, with so much charm, lovely people, amazing food (pasta and gelato), delicious wines and just so pretty!
