Most Memorable Travel Experience
There are so many so just name a few good ones!
[Paris, France] Standing in front of the Moulin Rouge, my first 'tourist attraction' on the first night of my big RTW trip.
[Poland] Being on the wrong train on my way to Krakow from Dresden & getting off in the middle of nowhere. There was nothing but knee-deep snow & people who spoke not a word of English but who were so helpful.
[Budapest, Hungary] I was almost overcome with emotion on my first night after climbing the hill to look down over the city & River Danube. What a magical city!
[Croatia] Seeing the Plitvice Lakes covered in snow. There was barely another soul in sight that day. Eerie & beautiful.
[Siena, Italy] Sitting on the floor in Piazza del Campo & eating Italian pastries under shelter as it rained.
[Ayutthaya, Thailand] My first great temple in Asia - Wat Chaiwatthanaram at sunset.
[Chiang Mai, Thailand] Riding an elephant is a very bizarre experience!
[Laos] I have fond memories of the friends I made on the slow boat from Thailand to Luang Prabang, & the fun 10 days together that followed.
[Siem Reap, Cambodia] My three day temple tour. Cambodia itself was pretty special as the people were so warm.
[Sapa, Vietnam] Two days' trekking in the hills. What a stunning place!
[Koh Tao, Thailand] Learning to scuba dive was an unforgettable highlight of the entire trip.
[Australia] WWOOFing in Victoria & Tasmania; The vineyard, painting & decorating, sheep shearing, flower picking, veggie gardens, market stalls & lots of fond memories.
[Hobart, Tasmania] Climbing Mount Wellington on a hot day! The views at the top were rewarding enough!
[Copenhagen, Denmark] Spending six days in Copenhagen for my 26th birthday with three of my favourite people. What a great city!
