A few days ago marked half a year since leaving the U.K., and it’s crazy to think that it’s been that long since I’ve seen family and friends and been away from home.
So much has happened in the last 6 months and I feel extremely lucky to be in the position I am, to travel freely and independently and for everything I’ve experienced.
Although almost everything I’ve seen and everywhere I’ve visited has been beautiful, here are my 10 Favourite Views I’vey seen whilst travelling through Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Bali & Australia:
1. The Grampians National Park, Victoria, Australia
I did a 3 day tour of the Great Ocean Road & The Grampians National Park in Melbourne back in February and I’ve never seen anything like it. Australia’s scenery never ceases to amaze me..
2. Hoi An, Vietnam
Vietnam is a very diverse country in its landscapes, but in between the chaotic cities of Hoi Chi Minh and Hanoi, the gem of it all for me was Hoi An. I would return in a heartbeat!
3. Rayleigh Beach, Krabi, Thailand
It is infamous for how stunning it is and I had the best day relaxing here, in the most serene setting. It felt like my surroundings are the embodiment of the word ‘paradise’.
4. King’s Park, Perth, Western Australia
The million stairs we had to climb were completely justified by the view we were rewarded by at the end. The city’s skyline doused in a lilac sunset was unbelievably gorgeous.
5. The Singapore Skyline
I think I have made my love for Singapore pretty obvious in previous blog posts, and even though a city’s CBD can sometimes look similar to others, there’s something about Singapore that just took my breath away. I’m trying to encourage everyone to go and I can’t wait to go back myself!
6. Sunset on Kuta Beach, Bali, Indonesia
In direct contrast to Singapore, Bali wasn’t my favourite and I couldn’t wait to leave, but the sunset we saw on Kuta Beach on our first night was different to anything I’ve ever seen. Everyone stayed put to watch the sun disappear directly on the horizon.
7. The Royal National Park, New South Wales, Australia
I only visited the Royal National Park a few weekends ago and it very quickly became one of my favourite things I’ve seen. Divine beaches, continuous greenery and without the hoards of tourists. Bliss.
8. Sunrise, Port Lincoln, South Australia
I boarded a boat at 6.30am to go and cage dive with Great White Sharks and the epic sunrise we saw was just the start of an absolutely amazing day. Something I’ll never forget and can’t wait to repeat..
9. White Temple, Chiang Rai, Thailand
I vividly remember saying to Shamara how speechless I felt when we first saw the White Temple. There aren’t really words describe how incredible it looks in person, and how grateful I am to say I’ve been there.
10. Sydney Harbour, New South Wales, Australia
Lastly, and by no means least, the view that single handedly made me fall in love with Sydney, is the iconic view of the Opera House & Harbour Bridge. It will never get boring and makes me smile every time I see it.
