It’s been five years now since Chris and I left the United Kingdom, and we’ve found ourselves reminiscing about all of the places we’ve been lucky enough to visit on our travels. We’ve climbed mountains together in the Himalayas, swum in the world’s great oceans, and experienced many diverse cultures across Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Europe. In an attempt to mark our five years on the road, we thought we’d compile a list of our top six travel destinations.


Chris might be biased, as his maternal grandparents were Italian. Nonetheless, it’s easy to see why Italy is his favourite country to visit. There’s such a great range of cities including Rome, Florence, and Venice, as well as beautiful countryside in places like Umbria and the lakes and mountains of the north. With its fantastic food, temperate climate, and a history matched by few other countries, Italy would be our top choice if we were only allowed to visit one country for the rest of our lives.


When we visited China, we were lucky enough to travel to a diverse range of locations across the huge country. Our trip began in Beijing, which boasted a fascinating mix of ancient history and modern amenities like bars, restaurants, and hotels. Next, we traveled to Xian,where we got to see the Terracotta Warriors, and to Guilin, where we sailed down the magical Li River.


As fans of the great outdoors, we couldn’t leave Nepal off our list. Trekking across the snow-capped peaks around Mount Everest was one of the most unforgettable experiences we’ve ever had on our adventures around the world.

The Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are home to really unusual animals like blue-footed birds, hammerhead sharks, and giant tortoises. Whether you like hiking, snorkelling, or diving, there are many different ways to see these amazing animals up close.


Peru was our home for almost a year. During that time, we visited incredible places from the highest navigable lake in the world to Machu Picchu to the mysterious Nazca Lines. The people in Peru are wonderful and make a visit to this country even more special. Foodies will be pleased to hear that Peru is home to what’s been voted Latin America’s best restaurant, which is owned by Michelin-starred chef Virgilio Martinez.


We spent three months in Bolivia and fell in love with the small but diverse country. There are adventures around every corner, from abseiling down buildings in the world’s highest capital to biking down the world’s most dangerous road to marvelling at the world’s largest salt flats. Bolivia is rich in history and culture. No matter which part of the country you visit, you wont be disappointed.

Planning ahead and getting some good deals beforehand is one of the ways we could afford to travel to so many incredible places. I hope our list inspires you to travel the world. Have you have been to any of our favourite destinations?

  1. So glad to see China on your list. I’m currently living in Beijing but I haven’t had the chance to travel anywhere outside of the city. There are so many amazing-looking places in this country, and I’m dying to do some traveling. I’ve heard great things about Xian lately. Hopefully I’ll get there soon 🙂
