There are so many beautiful spots in Jordan – from spending the night in the other worldly red desert of Wadi Rum, to exploring ancient and impressive Petra, to floating in the Dead Sea, or hiking in the many Wadis (canyons) around the country. BUT my absolute favorite spot and thing to do in Jordan is to hike in Dana Nature Reserve and spend the night at the beautiful Rummana Campsite.
I absolutely loveeeeeeed Lanzarote and have been dreaming about it in the weeks since I’ve returned to London. But what better way to relive the memories than through putting this video together of some of the beautiful places I was able to see. Even with bad weather, Lanzarote by van was a dream and an exciting way to experience the island!
In my post on biking the pacific coast highway, I said that bike touring was my favorite mode of travel (I also said at one point that hot air balloons were my favorite too!). But the truth, the truth is that road tripping is my absolute favorite way to travel. Just thinking about it I can feel the wind and freedom, hear the faint tunes of the road trip playlist that has been far too overthought, and see the fleeting landscapes of unfamiliar places and open roads.
The wonderful thing about living in London is how connected it is to the rest of the world – flights are always readily available and cheap. And they seem to be even cheaper in winter when most of Europe is bitterly cold and less appealing to tourists. I took full advantage of this in January when planning a long weekend trip to Budapest for my birthday!
