The 52 Lists Project // Week 22

Good morning everyone! This post was supposed to go up on Sunday but I was just sitting down to write it when I heard the awful news of the attack on London on Saturday evening and it just felt so trivial in that moment to write a list about the favourite places I've been to, although we must always carry on after these atrocities lest terrorists win.

So I'm here today feeling absolutely heartbroken about the whole thing but writing this anyway because I love blogging and I feel incredibly lucky to have had some amazing experiences and to have travelled to some amazing places during my short lifetime so I wanted to share this today.

This week's list is, you guessed it, "List your favourite places you have been." and there are so many, but I've managed to narrow it down to just a few so here they are...

  • Barcelona - My trip to Barcelona with my nine best friends was one of the best weeks of my life and it really is a city that has everything; great shopping, a wonderful beach, amazing nightlife and beautiful architecture. It was the perfect week away and I'm desperate to go back.
  • Genoa - Genoa is the first place I ever went in Italy and I absolutely adored it! It might not be the most obvious Italian destination but it's a great city and so close to the stunning Cinque Terre and I had such a wonderful time there.
  • Liverpool - My sister has lived in Liverpool for a good few years now and going to visit her is such a treat not only to spend time with her but also to explore Liverpool. I never would have thought it but it's such a cool city and fun place to be with so much to do. If you're looking for a UK weekend away definitely consider it.
  • Sighisoara - This Romanian city is one of my favourite places. We stopped there a couple of years ago when my Mum and I were travelling around a bit and it's such a cute little city, especially in the Summer!
  • London - Oh London. There aren't words for how much I adore my home city. It's true what they say - London is one of the most special cities and I don't think I'd rather live anywhere else in the world.
  • Exeter - I have to include my uni city on this list because I am having the time of my life living here. I feel like I'm discovering new cafes and cute little places all the time even though Exeter isn't the largest city and it's just the loveliest place to live.
  • Lapland - You might remember me writing about my trip to Lapland back in January but, if not, let me fill you in. It's the most magical place I've ever been and I want to go back every winter from now on. You must add it to your list if you haven't thought of it!

So those are my favourite places I've been so far. Please let me know if there's anywhere you'd really recommend adding to my travel bucket list. It's already far too long but a bit of wanderlust never hurt anyone, right?

I hope you all have wonderful weeks and please let's remember to always love rather than hate. In times like this we need the kindness of strangers more than ever.
