That part of England where the famous Harry Potter was shot. Yes, Oxford University is one of the best universities in the world with hundreds of courses and over 30 colleges, this is the to-go. 

Image

Ever since I went to visit Oxford when I was about 10, it has always been my dream to attend college here; this dream is never going to change. Yeah, it might not be the world’s best university or anything, but life is not only about the best. It is perfect in many (MANY) ways and it is the ideal dream university. 

Image

With all its old architecture and its shops and courses, Oxford has an impeccable reputation all around the world. It has been and will always be the university of my fantasies. 

Image

The Rickshaw Run is something I heard about recently. It is a 2000 mile drive in a tuk-tuk across India and takes place for raising money for a charity. It is the perfect travel experience and of course, amusing to no extent.

Image

It spans the a load of the Indian subcontinent, with two weeks to complete the entire journey. You get to choose the charity that you help and it takes place three times a year. The starting and ending points vary between Shillong, Jaisalmer and Fort Kochi.

Image

“Pimp” up your rickshaw and make it look outstanding – and also give it a unique name. The distance you cover is the same of London to Moscow, and the vehicle is only used for short jaunts around the city or village.

Image

With India’s mind-blowing cullture, food and the various smells, this trip is one of a kind. You get to taste, see, smell and experience the varied culture of the different states in India and celebrate; while basking in the chaos of the towns.

Image

Image

This would be a thrilling experience, getting to be exposed to this kind of culture, while still being able to help and give back.

Image

This is kind of an unusual place to blog about, seeing as everyone blogs about the glamorous city of Paris or the exotic food of Italy.

However, the Philippines is also a beautiful country, with its sparkling beaches; and it is also home to nature’s wonders of the world.

Boracay

Famous for its white sand beaches, this island is perfect for kicking back and relaxing.

Image

You can do a bit of snorkeling or paddle boarding and enjoy the nightlife with the endless parties that take place.

Image

Palawan

Perfect place for island hopping across various islands and going for a snorkel or taking the kayak out onto the water as you feel the breeze cool you down.

Image

Having a beach barbecue will be the highlight of your day, as you sit on the soft sand and feel the wind in your hair; while eating some of the most delicious food you can.

Image

This isn’t all. The beautiful underground river of Puerto Princessa is one of nature’s 7 Wonders of the World, and it certainly exceeded my wildest expectations. Cruise in a kayak under a cave and look at all the different themes that nature has created with rock formations – a vegetable market, a garbage dump, and even the Last Supper.

Image

Image

Palawan is a definite go-to.

Image

Bohol

“My humps. More fun in the Philippines.”Image

Bohol holds over 1200 grass-covered limestone domes – “the Chocolate Hills” – that are almost symmetrical. It is also home to the Philippine Tarsier, which is considered the second-smallest primate in the world.

Baguio

Baguio is a hill station, at the North of Luzon. It is such a perfect city to relax, look at the view with a hot cocoa in your hand.

This isn’t just all. There are many other places around the country to visit!

Overall, I think the Philippines is a wonderful country, and is definitely underrated (hey, Shay Mithell’s from here).

I am incredibly pleased to be living here and am delighted to get the chance to visit these places!

Image

The city of lights. I know that people say that “Parisians are awful people”, and “the sights are too crowded” and “its not worth the expense,” but it is definitely one place that has lodged itself in my heart and it is one place that I will forever want to visit.

Image

The Notre Dame cathedral, the Musée de Louvre, l’Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower are just some of the things you can visit. I want to spend a week being the stereotypical tourist around Paris and fulfilling that fantasy of mine – with someone I love.

Image

Image

Image

Then there’s the bridge of locks. Going with someone you love and putting a lock just makes it that much more special.

Image

The exotic cuisine of France: macarons, crêpes, escargots and that is just a start. I want to spend time sipping on wine, munching on croissants and living the cliché tourist life.

Image

Image

I have never been to France (except the airport) and it is one country I have always wanted to visit. I hope that someday, when I travel the world, I will be able to go! I want to visit the smallest ailes in the world with double the amount of people it can handle, eat the exotic cuisine – one of the best in the world and be able to speak one of the most romantic and beautiful languages in the world. Here’s to the dream vacation, in Paris.
