There are cities and places on this beautiful planet I hold dear to my heart. Places I have promised myself to see at least once or one more time. Some of these places I've visited on a whim, in a rush or with the wrong travel companion; these are the places I've vowed to go see again. Others are just photographs in store-bought postcards, images on Pinterest or names on the world atlas. These are the places on my wanderlust list.
This Turkish city is one of my favourite places in the world! I've visited it twice already (once on a group trip sometime after high school and before Uni and then again with an old boyfriend.) And on both occasions I felt like I wasn't doing it right. On my next visit I would love to walk everywhere, cycle and just immerse myself with the locals. Maybe I'll even buy a carpet from the grand bazzar.
Nairobi is my favourite city on the continent and hopefully one day I can live there. It's got beautiful people and reminds me dearl of Jo'burg and then sometimes looks like a bit of Dubai with its buildings and loveliness.
I'd always been indifferent about Australia as a destination and place to explore --for obvious reasons... But after season 25 of the Oprah Winfrey show I had to admit to myself that the country looked amaze-balls! If you don't remember, Oprah took her first episode's entire on a all-expenses-paid trip to the beautiful continent. I sat myself down for a short jetsetter's talking-to and I said "girl, you will deal with not liking Australian sport teams and one day you will go see this beauty!"
These are three destinations on my lust-see-list. What's on yours?
