    My main aspirations and goals in life are to travel the whole world. I am so inspired by the different places, cultures, sceneries, and just life in general all over.

    Where is your favourite place and why?
    What are the things you enjoyed most?
    What was the atmosphere like?
    Was there lots to do?
    Why would you recommend this place?

    My favourite country - Isle Of Man. Was born and bred there. Its a beautiful place, very quiet. The scenery is amazing also.
    My favourite City - Glasgow. Great atmosphere, lovely place (especially in the west end). I would recommend a visit, a place by the Uni, love it round there. People are lovely.
    My favourite place - Douglas Head, IOM. Breathtaking

    I could go on haha!

    It's funny you say that because I'm actually going to Paris with my partner for four days next month! I'm really excited I've never been there before..

    Any ideas on things to do for young couples? Other than the obvious of Eiffel Tower and the Louvre..

    It seems really amazing though, except for the snails I won't be trying those!!

    Yeah Norway seems like an amazing country however I want to leave Scandanavian countries until I'm a little older! I feel like I would appreciate them more in the future.

    I wouldn't make too many plans, part of the charm of Paris is just being able to walk around and find things as you go.

    Favourite place which isn't in the UK has to be Manaus in Brazil. It isn't very far from the Amazon forest and the mangos there are heavenly.

    Thank you you've given me some great ideas there! I've never really thought of the IOM before with it being relatively close.. Definitely will be something I look into for the future!

    Me and my partner were actually planning a road trip upto Scotland as well because the scenary there is amazing.

    I'll keep that in mind - there's a walk we are looking forward to, across the 'promenade plantée' the old railway which overlooks the city, which I think is around 2-3 miles! It will be interesting.

    Just Brazil sadly. They have a beach in Brazil which has black sand. It looks so good and I really want to go. Peru looks amazing tbh.

    Also if you like dogs, check out the land of the strays

    Geneva, as it's green, clean and full of history. And as I don't really like cars and the cities are very cyclist and pedestrian friendly with good public transport, it is a lot more relaxed than London. A nice atmosphere but I don't think it would be as fun as central London. There is a lot to do due to the amount of culture in the region around Lac Léman and the amount of greenery once you left the cities.
