After travelling to 40+ countries, I’m often asked where my favourite place in the world is. I find it hard to give just ONE place, my usual answer is ‘I liked here, here, here, here OH and here’! But it’s time to try and put them in an order once and for all…although I can guarantee that it’ll probably change with new adventures, but for now, here are my top 10 world-wide destinations!
Latvia is a country that surprised me and I quickly fell in love with it. Originally I landed at Riga airport, jumped straight on a train and headed for Sigulda and the bobsled track. On the way home, I had some spare time to kill before my flight home so used it to check out the Riga Christmas Markets. They aren’t huge but they definitely make up for it in personality and setting!
For AGES, the adrenaline activity that was right at the top of my bucket list was to be a passenger in a bobsleigh. I love the Cool Runnings Disney film, I visited the Whistler (Canada) track in the summer, and I watch the Bobsleigh World Cup every winter (I was a huge Steve Holcomb fan…RIP). In 2013 I finally ticked it off the bucket list and it didn’t disappoint, I was like a kid at Christmas! I even kissed my hard boiled egg at breakfast, just like Sanka in Cool Runnings! Here’s a look at my Sigulda bobsleigh experience!
