After our exciting news about our adventure next week, I wanted to do some research into the most dramatic landscapes and blissfully beautiful locations that I want to re-visit and explore and explore, over and over again!

It probably sounds strange, but when it gets really sunny in London (like today), my mind starts to wander into travel… I know lots of people are the opposite, when it’s a wet gloomy day,  their thoughts turn to booking their next holiday/adventure, but for some reason its always the sunny days that get me.. the thought of the potential to be sat on a beautiful harbour somewhere, exploring the history of a town I have always wanted to visit, or even letting the waves lapping against my feet on a sandy, while beach (ok, my imagination is going wild with the possibilities). I suppose more than anything, sunny weather makes me see potential to explore.  Eke, I hope I’m not the only one!?!

Regardless if you are a sunny or gloomy weather “decision maker” when searching for holidays/vacations, I hope these destinations will help you find your own travel lust list:
