5 Destinations I’d Love to Revisit

Milford Sound

As part of the Booked.netTop Destinations to Go There promotion, I’ve been invited to share five of my favourite destinations that I’ve been before and would love to revisit. I thought this was going to be easy, but as I reminisced over wonderful travel memories, narrowing down my favourites proved to be quite the challenge!

Don’t stress guys, it sure was tough but I managed to reduce it down to my top 5…in no particular order – that would be way too hard to decide!

Two Week Costa Rica Itinerary

We spent two weeks in Costa Rica in May this year. As I mentioned in an earlier post, we went to Costa Rica primarily to visit Alan’s sister who is currently living there, and also to see and do as much as we could fit into our limited time there!

Because Alan’s sister lives in Heredia, we spent more time in The Central Valley than most people probably would schedule into a two week trip. But with a comfortably warm climate, no pesky mosquitos, and plenty of day trips and adventures to be had, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Central Valley.

We hired a car, which we had for 9 days in total of our 14 day trip. Here’s a quick recap of how we spent our incredible two weeks in Costa Rica – and how we “squeezed all the juice out of the orange” (a great quote from our rental car company!) on our trip.

Hasta Luego, Costa Rica

We arrived home a few days ago to the freezing cold of Christchurch, after spending the last two weeks in Costa Rica.

We made up our minds in a single split-second to go along with Alan’s family to visit his sister who lives there, and boy am I glad we did!

I’ll definitely be writing more about our favourite places we visited and activities we did when I manage to defrost my fingers and toes with the harsh winter cold we are currently experiencing back home! But in the meantime, here are some photo highlights of our time in the paradise that is Costa Rica. We sure fit a lot into two weeks!
