It’s very rare that I ever fancy a holiday without the kids, because to be honest for many years, it was just me and them. However there are definitely some places in the world that aren’t necessarily places you would want to go with children. I thought today on my blog, I would share a few places I would love to visit – just Chris and I.
The Canary Islands are somewhere I have always wanted to visit and Lanzarote is probably top of the list. With its beautiful coast line, blue ocean and plenty of places to explore, it would be a really great trip as a couple. Now that we can both drive, hiring a car and sharing the drive would be fun too, so we would be able to explore everywhere. Even though neither of us are really beach holiday people, it would be great to have a few down days too, where we just relaxed in the sun and drank cocktails!
To be honest, Iceland could also be Finland, Sweden, Lapland, Norway… wherever, so long as I get to see the Northern Lights. While I’m pretty sure the kids would love Aurora Borealis itself, the trek to see the lights is often cold, maybe even camping out in the middle of nowhere. Since being a young girl I have always dreamed of seeing the Northern Lights and really truly I do hope it comes true one day. Realistically though, this holiday is one best spent without the kids, especially if we’re like to head for places like IceHotel or TreeHotel in Sweden, though I think they might be a bit miffed if we ended up in Lapland with Santa.
Finally on the list is Las Vegas, a place I have wanted to visit ever since reading Belinda Jones’ “Divas Las Vegas“. I know for a fact that this is not a place I would want to go with the kids and to be honest I’m not entirely sure I could afford to visit (I mean come on, you can’t go and not have some money to gamble!). A part of me would love to do the whole experience, gamble, get drunk and then get married by an Elvis impersonator but let’s face it, those things only happen in the movies. I would still really love to stay in an amazing hotel, eat at some of the best restaurants and have a few hours in a casino!
With or without the kids, where do your Wanderlust dreams take you?
