Here at WhatAWonderfulWorld we love street art! We capture it wherever and whenever we can! We’re very excited to be handing our blog over to Camila today, who is going to share with us some beautiful street art she captured while … Continue reading
We all have travel wishes; places we’d love to go to with the click of our fingers. Places we’ve looked at endless photographs of. And places that fill our travel dreams. Inspired by Camila’s post on her bucket list of places, I have created my own. The top four places I dream of, in no particular order.
Some are very specific places while others are the country in general. Some have been dreamt of for years and others are newer additions. This was a really fun post to write and one that has made me get itchy feet. Luckily, I’m off on a trip in three weeks time. Phew 😉
This is definitely a combination of my love for Nepal and Chile. I started dreaming of Tibet around four years ago. Firstly, the mountains! My love for mountains was developed in Nepal and Chile and I just love them so much. The vastness and beauty of them is breathtaking. Secondly, the spirituality of Tibet. The Buddhist pagodas, the colourful prayer flags and the mediation that is all associated with the place. This was something that captured me in Nepal and then later in Cambodia; an air of peacefulness and tranquility.
2. Fernando de Noronha, Brasil
When I first purchased a South America guidebook, 5 years ago, this place sprung out at me. Fernando de Noronha is an archipelago of 21 islands off the coast of Brasil. What makes this place really special is that it is a UNESCO word heritage site. It boasts beautiful white sand, unbelievably clear water and lots of ecosystems. I guess it is a kind of paradise, and one I would love to go to!
This one is another Nepal inspired place, can you tell I love Nepal?! (Which makes me realise I haven’t written a post about Nepal… coming soon!). The beautiful, bright green rice fields is what springs to mind when I think of Vietnam. These look stunning at all times; after a monsoon shower when they look shimmering; as the sunset reflects on the water of the rice fields and when you spot the rice farmers in the far distance with their wide hats. I’d love to go!

I find that travel dreams start either when you become inspired by a similar place or a friend tells you about the place. Cartagena is a more recent addition to my wishes and it began when Clem was living in Colombia. Clem told me all about the city and showed me the colours and characters that it had. Then I was captured by it. Anywhere this colourful is jaw dropping.
What are your travel dreams? Have you been to any of these four places? If so, please link me your photos to fuel my dreams even more! Have a great rest of the week 🙂
Here in Chile, it is the middle of winter! The children have had their winter holidays and the snow has covered the top of the surrounded mountains in Santiago. I have never experienced this season in Chile before, and I … Continue reading
Scones and jam are typically associated with afternoon tea but on a warm summer’s evening why not enjoy them outside? Listen to the gentle rustling of the trees while you tuck into a Saturday night treat. Grab a blanket, scones, jam, … Continue reading

Summer has arrived. The sun is hot. The sky is blue. The flowers are bright. The bees are buzzing. The butterflies are fluttering. The frogs are splashing. These photos were really fun to take; trying not to disturb the … Continue reading
Hit the road, go to Argentina! That sounds dreamy, but one of the millions things I love about Chile is that it is close to Argentina. You hit the road, cross the Andes and here you are in Mendoza, Argentina. … Continue reading
Flowers are one of my favourite subjects for photography; the colour, the texture, the shape. I love them! I shared with you some of my flower photographs from around the world here. And now for a collection of flowers, and … Continue reading
I love using my fish eye lens. It beautifies and distorts the ordinary into the extraordinary. This time last year I set off for three weeks in Cambdoia and my fish eye lens joined me everyday. Here are some of … Continue reading
“Be careful going to Mendoza this weekend. You might get stuck in the mountains if it snows!” But I thought we’d be fine! While living in Santiago, Clem and I went to Mendoza in Argentina for the weekend. It’s a … Continue reading
