Today my Friday Five is some of my favourite places I've visited...
1. Applecross, Scottish Highlands
My dad and I used to take a trip here every summer for the Highland Games. It's such a beautiful and tranquil part of the world. It's extremely remote - the road in and out is impassable in bad weather - but would highly recommend it for anyone planning a trip to the UK. And the pub does some pretty amazing fish and chips!
2. Shirley Heights, Antigua
The first half of my honeymoon was spent living it up on South Beach, Miami and the second half here in Antigua relaxing on the beach with a few good books... and lots of rum! Every Sunday there is a sunset party at Shirley Heights, an old military lookout. BBQ, local steel band, more rum(!) and an unbelievable sunset.
This was our last pre-baby holiday. We met up with good friends from home and travelled from Phuket to Bangkok. A fun and hilarious few weeks!
4. Blue Lagoon, Iceland
On our way to New York for Steven's birthday we stopped off in Iceland. I was so excited to go to the geothermal spas. Such a odd experience! I must admit, I was a little disappointed to find out that the ground was heated by the massive power plant along the road and wasn't a natural occurrence!
5. Sorrento and Capri, Italy
Other than friends and family, there isn't much that I miss about the UK. What I do miss however is having amazing European countries right on your door step! Our last European trip before moving to Melbourne was to Italy. Food, wine and shopping. What more could a girl want!
