When I find great travel destinations I get so excited. I enjoy most places i visit, but every so often you come across somewhere fantastic that takes your breath away. The 3 destinations below do exactly that:
1. Patagonia, Argentina
Patagonia is a stunning place. Glaciers as far as the eye can see, rolling landscapes and stunning vistas. When you arrive it takes a while to sink in as it feels like somewhere out of a fairytale. Whether you soak up the lakes around El Calafate, go trekking around El Chalten or go fully south to the tip of Ushaia you won’t leave disappointed. Just don’t forget your jumpers…
2. Roatan, Honduras
The archetypal paradise island. Roatan offers white sands, crystal clear waters and relaxed Caribbean locals. Go scuba diving by day, sit back and enjoy a cocktail by night; it doesn’t get much better. Get there fast though, as it’s quickly becoming a favourite for holidaying Americans and before long could be overrun.
3. Paris, France
Of all the cities i’ve ever visited Paris stands head and shoulders above the rest. It has everything; gorgeous architecture, charming cafes and bars, beautiful parks and squares. Whether you want to wander round and take in world-recognised icons or you simply want to laze around in beautiful surroundings Paris can cater for you. Stroll around the city, sail along the Seine or snooze in les jardins – the city of romance won’t disappoint.
I’ve visited a lot of places in the world and these 3 stand out as being fantastic – i challenge anyone to go to any of them and not have a good time and have their breath taken away.
