The Colosseum or also known as the ‘Flavian Amphitheater’ is an extremely well known tourist attraction based in Rome, Italy. It had been something that I’ve always wanted to experience. I had seen photo after photo of it but I don’t think anything could have prepared me for how huge it was and the over whelming feeling of the range of emotions people would have felt there back in its prime. Today on Wandering in Wanderland, Wander with me through the Roman’s Colosseum.
Since I started this blog – I’ve always wanted to write about how Travel can help boost your mental health. I have always felt that mental health is quite a personal and at times very difficult topic but the thing is everyone has mental health like, everyone has physical health and both need to be nurtured and cared for. Before I start I want to be open that I do not have a diagnosed mental health condition but like most modern people – I had a long period where I felt low and anxious. I’m not here to belittle anyone that does have a mental health condition but simply to tell my story and the benefits traveling has had on me.
For the first part of my ‘wandering through’ series – I’m taking a walk through Montmartre in Paris, France. Montmartre is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to and every time I go to Paris, I have to go and find something new!
Iceland is known for it’s many huge and fantastic waterfalls. Iceland definitely did not disappoint. We had our planned ‘stop offs’ but even when driving – you could spot waterfall after waterfall – each better than the last. Mixed with the dramatic waterfall – bad or good – the waterfalls were beyond amazing. At one point, with the high winds we even saw a waterfall going the wrong way – as in upside down.
Today on the blog – I’m finishing the Icelandic series and giving you some Waterfall Wanderlust.
Iceland is packed full of tours that tourists can go on that see all the top spots but when my friend L ( who can drive ) decided to come to Iceland – I jumped on the chance to rent a car for the trip. Here is what you should think about when self driving Iceland.
Iceland has quite a few lagoons throughout the country! The two I had heard of before traveling there was, of course, the world known Blue Lagoon and ‘the cheaper version’ Secret Lagoon. I have seen many bloggers try to compare the two to help fellow travellers decide which one to go to. I’m here to tell you that you can’t. They are completely different and here I will tell you how.
While on our weekend trip to Iceland, we managed to squeeze in some black sand beaches on the south coast and boy was I glad that I did! Out of everything we did, the Black Sand beaches surprised me the most. They were spectacular and I haven’t seen anything like it before!
For part of my short and sweet Iceland series, I’m starting by giving you guys a gift. It took me the best part of a sunday afternoon to make our itinerary to ensure that we saw all what Iceland had to offer in just 2.5 days. Yep, you heard me 2.5 days. Of course, we never saw it all and trust me when I say, I’ll be back but for now I’m giving you our self drive itinerary for the golden circle and part of the south coast! Ya’ll can thank me later!
With a plan to find the beauty in Edinburgh and its surroundings, I was pleasantly surprised when East Lothian was not only pretty but magical too. I realised rather quickly with my wild imagination that I was finding parts to a crazy fairy tale.
With International Women’s Day approaching – I stated thinking how could I celebrate my fellow travel loving gals on my blog?! So I’ve had a think about it and I’m sharing with you some top women who give me some serious wanderlust.
