Prior to visiting Iceland I was always torn between whether to visit in summer or winter. Having now visited in the two extremes (middle of summer and middle of winter) I'm going to outline the most important things to consider when deciding when to visit.
Because you're dressed as a rubbery marshmallow you easily float on top of the water, and look down into what I can only describe as another world. The water itself is so clean and pure (it's as pristine as you can get) and the visibility here is over 100m, which is an experience that can rarely be (if ever) duplicated anywhere else.
We didn't actually do that much sight seeing in Copenhagen; within a day we'd decided we love the city so much we will definitely go back, so there was no rush. So, we did a bit ambling around the streets rather than directly seeking locations, and loved what we saw.
Having now survived the trauma of limiting my beauty products for a several trips I've found a few firm favourites for travel. I'm going to run through a few here, leaving out the boring stuff like deodorant and toothpaste (which I 100% put into my boyfriends luggage, to make more room for the good stuff.)
We went here for brunch and left with a bill that made our eyes water a little bit... but it's okay, because have you SEEN this place? The food and drinks were amazing - if you can get a champagne cocktail alongside your pancakes, you're already onto a winner.
At this point, my love of travel was just beginning, so I was oblivious to just how beautiful Croatia is. I quickly discovered Dubrovnik had the most beautiful old town and plenty of things to do. Soon, our supposedly relaxing holiday was ever so slightly hijacked by my desire to explore.
Going up the Eiffel Tower is probably the most touristy thing you could do in Paris, but I don't care, I love it. There is something magical about being atop one of the most iconic buildings in the world, looking down at a beautiful city glittering in the night.
Bath has a lot of beautiful Georgian architecture, so it's lovely to wander around. The Circus and The Royal Crescent are famous landmarks, they consist of grade I listed townhouses, arranged in a curve. I know it sounds boring, but it's actually pretty.
Not only is it home to the popular cheese in the Britain, but it also has the the biggest gorge in Britain, and is where Britain's oldest complete skeleton was found. Cheddar is great if you're interested in nice scenery, history... and cheese.
Iceland has the most unique landscapes I've ever seen. Lava fields, glaciers, volcanoes, hot springs, waterfalls, and so on. They all seem to flow seamlessly into each other: if I believed in God, I'd consider him a fantastic landscape architect, but isn't it even more incredible that these sights are entirely natural wonders, and a testament to incredible power of our world?
