Merry Christmas, I trust your belly’s and hearts are full and you are now planning your next family get together! With the year coming to a close I wanted to end off with a travel bucket list for 2019 for anyone looking for a little inspiration. Get in touch with me if you have any questions on the recommendations/destinations and I would be happy to answer 🙂
Ella is paradise for any nature lover who wants tranquility while exploring nature in the highlands. With long walks, waterfalls, breathless sunsets and endless tea plantations, it is hard not to fall in love with this place in the heart of Sri Lanka. The best time to travel is in April for dry weather across both coasts of Sri Lanka and if you plan it right you can travel during the easter bank holiday and first may bank holiday, taking only 9-10 days off work for almost 3 weeks of holidays!
Cambodia is a popular tourist attraction mainly for the famous ang kor wat and it is a spectacular site to see apart from the crowds. However, everyone knows my favourite part of Cambodia was travelling to Mondulkiri to visit the rescued elephants and take in the small village in the mountains. Cambodia is a great pit stop in a southeast Asia trip as it sits between Thailand and Vietnam and you can fly from Siem Reap to Bangkok for as little as £30!
I visited Myanmar about 2 years ago and I still consider it one of the best trips (after Sri Lanka). The culture, the temples, the people it is all so mesmerising. Travelling around Myanmar can be a bit of a nightmare if not planned properly so read my tips and give yourself enough time. Inle lake was an unexpected gem, not just the majestic lakes with famous leg fishermen, but the hidden temples we found when we stepped off the boat to explore. Myanmar is a bit more expensive than it’s neighbouring countries but that is an exchange for a more raw, less touristy experience than say Thailand.
Have you travelled these destinations and fallen in love too?
Merry Christmas, Be Merry and Grateful xoxo
