5 Destinations To Add To Your Bucket List

Easter Island – Chile

Easter Island is an island off Chile located in the South East of the Pacific Ocean. You can get there by plane or ship.

I arrived there by cruise ship, but it is a hard place to get to and sometimes the ship misses the port due to sea and weather conditions. You can fly from Santiago in Chile and the flight time is just over 5 hours.

Easter Island is a fascinating place and it also very strange! Around the island are these giant stone statues, similar to a person, as they have a body and head.

Seeing these giant statues with your own eyes is epic, as they are so big. When I was there I kept thinking how did they make these statues all those years ago and why?

I recommend going on a tour of the island, so you hear the stories and hiring a car and driving around, I did both and got a real feel for the island.

South America has some fantastic places to add to your bucket list here are 9 unbelievable attractions in South America.

Bora Bora – French Polynesia

The most idyllic place in the world. It looks like you have just stepped out of a postcard. This is the destination for you if you like white sand, crystal clear water and staying in paradise.

The reef is fantastic for snorkelling and diving. See stingrays, sharks and tropical fish.

In Bora Bora, you can just let go and relax. Wifi is not everywhere so you can really switch off.

Petra – Jordan

Petra the Lost City, one of the seven wonders of the world. If you have not heard of Petra the Lost City, you may have seen it in films such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Arabian Nights or The Mummy Returns.

Petra is hidden in the sandstone mountains and is believed to have been built as early as the 312 BC.  The lost city was unknown to the western world until 1812 when the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt introduced it.

The highlight of Petra is the Al Khazneh which is also called ‘The Treasury’ and the photo that you see of Petra.

Chefchaouen – Morocco

Chefchaouen is located in the Moroccan Rif Mountains. In the Medina of Chefchaouen in Morocco, it is all about the blue. Everything is painted blue!

Walking through the narrow streets all you see is blue walls, blue doors, blue window frames, blue plant pots, blue stairs and blue paths in all different shades of blue. It is so unique and beautiful place to explore.

Kaohsiung – Taiwan

Kaohsiung is on the southwestern coast of Taiwan. It is a great city from the busy Chijin Island to the tranquil Lotus Lake.

Chijin Island is the city’s oldest district, full of street food vendors (mainly seafood), cute shops and home to the oldest temple in Kaohsiung, the Tienhou Temple.

Turn bad luck into good fortune at the Lotus Lake. It is a beautiful area set on a lake surround by lotus flowers. Walk through the Spring and Autumn Pavilions and the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas. See the colourful Chih Tzi Temple opposite the lake.

Stories that Make Travel Funny - Lucy Williams Global

We all have funny travel stories to tell after travelling. That is part of the fun of travelling to any part of the world.

Yesterday my husband got me thinking as I was getting ready to go out for our Valentines meal to a local restaurant and he said, ‘don’t do a Hong Kong’.

Only him and I know ‘what a Hong Kong’ is! But I thought it would be fun to share.

Our Funny Travel Story

We were travelling around Asia for a season (this was when I was still working onboard the cruise line too) and we were in Hong Kong for few days, so we went out for dinner.

My husband asked the port agent where the best place was to eat seafood. The guy gave us an address and organised transport to get us there.

So, in the meantime, I get dressed up to the nines in a beautiful black dress and high heels. I was ready for a lovely evening out and it was very near to Christmas.

I’m ready to go, our transport arrives and off we go. We are driving past all these very nice hotels and restaurants, but we keep going.

What you must see if you only have 48 Hours in Hong Kong

Where are we?

By this point, we have left the hustle and bustle of the city and end up at a market. It was a fish market!

We got out of the car and thought there must be a nice restaurant inside the market.

No!

It was a fish market where you pick your food and then choose one of the little restaurants within the market to cook it for you.

The food was fantastic and not cheap! But, I was just very overdressed for this type of night out!

Anyway, we had a good night and we always laugh about it now. I like to check the dress code now when I can.

In the end, I did get my night out in a fabulous restaurant in Hong Kong at the Renaissance Hotel and I got dressed up I felt great!

5 Products You Need in Your Travel First Aid Kit -Lucy Williams Global

I like to travel with a first aid kit with a few products that I know work and the instructions are in English. It is a lot easier to have something on hand than having to find a pharmacy when travelling.

I am not a doctor, but I carry these products with me when travelling. Please seek medical assistance if needed and always read the packaging of any meditation before you take it.

(This post includes affiliate links for more information see my disclaimer).

First Aid Kit

You could just bring a small travel size first aid kit to cover a lot of issues and there are a lot of great kits available on Amazon, like these ones:

                                         

 

These are the 5 products I always bring with me when travelling on a cruise vacation, a land vacation or even a weekend break:

Ibuprofen

Ibuprofen is good for headaches, fever, back pain, muscle pain and other body pains, as per the packaging label.

I always have a packet of Advil in my bag for headaches.

Plasters/Band-Aids

From cutting your finger to blisters on the back of your heels, band-aids are always handy to carry around. I don’t how many times I have needed a bandaid for cut up heels from my shoes rubbing after being out on tour all day.

I like to have a selection of sizes and choice of waterproof, I like these Band-Aids as it is a selection pack.

 

Allergy Tablets

I have allergies and I always carry allergy medication in my bag. Allergies can start at any time so it is always good to have a packet handy.

These ones by Claritin melt in your mouth so you do not even need any water to swallow them.

Travel Sickness Tablets

If you are going on a cruise, it is good to bring some travel sickness tablets. Even if you do not get sick, if it gets rough it might hit you. I generally do not get sick, but if it has been very calm seas and then the weather changes I can feel queasy.

Dramamine can be taken for cruise, car and plane sickness.

 

Heat Cream

Deep Heat is my go-to cream for sore muscles after the gym or walking around all day. I would rather apply heat cream onto the muscles than take an Ibuprofen.

Deep Heat always hits the spot after a long day.

These are my top five travel first aid kit products, what can you not travel without in your travel first aid kit?
