In my former life as a flight attendant, I travelled to some truly incredible places. I thought I would do a ‘Take me Away…’ post from time to time, so that wherever you are, whatever you’re doing you can be ‘taken away’.
Today I’m dreaming of;
Marrakech is easily one of the most fascinating places I’ve visited. A blend of African, Arabic and French influences make for one of the most intoxicating experiences for the senses.
A trip wouldn’t be complete with sipping mint tea at the Djemaa El-Fna, browsing the endless array of stalls and watching snake charmers and water sellers in their beautifully colourful costumes.
Welcome to Miami – bienvenido a miami! This is a party people playground, where you hit the beach, cafe’s and shops by day (the Kardashian sisters have one of their Dash stores here) and the bars and clubs by night. I loved starting each day off with breakfast at South Beach slowly sipping a Mimosa, enjoying the pretty pastels of the art deco architecture and watching the world go by.
Moscow is a destination for anyone who is fascinated with Russian history, art and culture. My first visit I went to see the Kremlin by night – it was breathtaking! I happened to buy a set of Matroyshka dolls that Little Miss now has sitting in her room. I remember very vividly thinking that one day I would tell my children about what it was like to be freezing cold in Red Square in Russia.
What destinations are you dreaming of today?
Where have you travelled to that was truly amazing?
