A friend and I have been dreaming of summer. Hot weather, the beach, the sea, so last night we decided too book a holiday. My friend came round and over a Chinese takeaway, cups of teas and excited squeals, we managed to book our dream holiday. Me being me, it was nothing uncomplicated. I do like an elaborate and complicated holiday. I am going to give you a little insight to what we booked.
We had carried out lots of research over the last month. We had checked prices with a few travel companies, and calculated the price of doing our own thing. In the end we called Virgin, who were really helpful, patiently listened to out girlish high pitched excitedness, and offered us the best deal.
In July we are flying out to Las Vegas. Where we stay for 3 nights. I cannot wait to check out the fancy hotels, visit the Neon Museum, go to the Grand Canyon, go shopping and check out what else Vegas has to offer. Virgin threw in a limo ride from the airport to the hotel, what a great start to the holiday!
We are then flying over to Hawaii where we stay in a hotel on Waikiki Beach for 6 nights. I am excited to check out the beaches, hike up diamond head, go to Manoa Falls, go to the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and visit Arizona Memorial and Pearl Harbor.
I feel like I will never want to leave Honolulu but then we are off to Los Angeles where will be spend three nights. Here I am looking forward to check out some rooftop bars, maybe do some yoga, look at the Hollywood sign, go to the Hollywood Bowl, visit the Runyon Canyon and much more. We certainly won't be able to fit everything I want to do into three days.
As you can imagine, I am SO EXCITED!! I am doing two of the things I wanted to do this year, visit somewhere I have never been before and travel outside of Europe. I don't like to wish time away but I cannot wait until July!!!
Have you been thinking of summer holidays?
