Summer 2016 Ultimate Travel Wish List ...//

I'm currently sat in my London apartment, submerged in blankets, freezing my butt off - so I've pulled together my wish list of travel destinations in an attempt to cheer myself up! Once a traveler, always a traveler. Nothing makes me happier than escaping real life, grabbing my sunnies and jumping on a plane. Exploring new places, new culture, new food - for me, that's what life is all about. So here's the top 5 destinations on my wish list for 2016:

1. Langkawi. After seeing Louis Cole's videos over Christmas, this small island collection of 99 islands is the top of my list. Located on the West coast of Malaysia, Langkawi is a tropical paradise  with a heap of tiny islands to explore, white sandy beaches and jungle.

2. Barcelona. The best of all  European cities in my books. I visited Barcelona when I was an art student many moons ago, and it has forever since been one of my faves. A visit is long overdue!  For the love of Gaudi, and the stunning architecture, for the love of endless boutique shopping and coffee breaks. And when you're bored of that, if it we're possible, there's over 4km of golden sandy beaches and warm ocean to enjoy.

3. Oslo. Every hipster and his tash seem to be heading to Oslo at the moment, and I want in! Bursting at the seams with world-class museums and galleries, while boasting some of Norway's most impressive works of architecture. With return flights for around £70, Oslo is the perfect weekend getaway!

4. Sri Lanka. We haven't chosen a honeymoon location yet, but Sri Lanka is for sure on the short list! Beaches and history galore, Sri Lanka makes the perfect travel destination for anyone with a love of long days and longer nights.

5. Santorini. After our trip to Mykonos last summer, my love affair with Greece continues. We've actually just booked our flights to Santorini for our close friend's wedding, and I'm SUPER excited! I cannot wait to dip my toes in the crystal ocean.  

Travel is a way of life, and it doesn't take too long after a trip for me to get itchy feet again. Hopefully in 2016 I get to visit some of these ultimate travel destinations! What's on your wishlist this year?
