6 Red editors reveal the dream holidays on their bucket list
From Cape Town to Kyoto
13/05/2021GettyFrom Mount Fuji to Kruger National Park, our next holidays are going to be ones to remember.With the possibility of travel now a firm reality on the horizon, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here: to plan and book our first getaway post-lockdown. And after months of fantasising about our dream destinations, once-in-lifetime trips are at the forefront of our minds.
The idea of soaking up new sights, smells and tastes makes us feel giddy with excitement, from eating our way around vibrant cities to relaxing on sunny, palm-fringed beaches (with not a Zoom call in sight). And booking withTravelbagmakes it a breeze.
Here, six of the Red team reveal the one trip they’re looking forward to taking once restrictions have eased – and they’re thinking big…1. Out on the open roadTHOMAS WINZ‘Having grown up watching American TV, I’ve always had a fascination with life in the USA — from suburban Connecticut to Texas, Oregon and Ohio – and what better way to experience it than by heading out on a road trip around North America? From diners and motels in the desert to Californian beaches and baseball games in the city, I want to experience it all! Now I just need to figure out my route…’ headtopics.com
Sarah Ilston, deputy digital editor2. Instagram-worthy winter sunAdam Vradenburg‘As soon as restrictions allow, I’ll be heading for Australia. I lived in Sydney for a few years and have lots of friends there that I would love to catch up with. Plus, the food, walks and beaches are as dreamy as you’d expect. Escaping the British winter for a few weeks in nearby Byron Bay would also be a bonus! What’s more, with
’s flexible booking policy you can book a big trip with a low deposit – and no worries!’Natalie Cornish, acting digital editor3. A wild birthdayARTHERNG‘As a huge animal lover, I have been dreaming of a trip to South Africa to go on safari for a long time now. In February 2021, I turned 30 and I’m hoping that when we’re able to travel again, I can have a belated birthday trip exploring the Garden Route, visiting Cape Town, Table Mountain and Kruger National Park. I’m sure that having been locked down in the UK for so long will make this holiday feel even more special!’
Ella Dove, c4. Paradise callsSAMANTHA T. PHOTOGRAPHY‘I’ve always dreamed of staying in an over-water hut on a French Polynesian island. I can’t think of a better antidote to staring at a screen in my home office (read: bedroom) than dangling my feet into calm, turquoise waters, with the sun on my face – the definition of bliss.’
Arielle Tchiprout, features writer5. Delve into CanadaFRANCESCO RICCARDO IACOMINO‘I’m desperate to go to Canada as soon as I’m able to. A few years ago, I had a 24-hour stopover in Toronto when travelling to the West Coast, USA, and I fell in love with the city. The people were lovely and welcoming, the shopping was excellent and I have been dreaming about the maple-syrup pancakes I ate that day ever since. I would love more than anything to go back – and explore the rest of the country while I’m at it. And with headtopics.com
, I know that with their Covid Pledge, if anything changes, my booking is covered to give me peace of mind.’Anna Bonet, f6. Epicurean delightsTHATREE THITIVONGVAROON‘I can’t wait to discover the natural beauty, delicious food and unique culture of Japan. From snow-capped Mount Fuji to the temples and geisha culture of Kyoto and the futuristic high-tech capital Tokyo, the country is top of my bucket list for its incredible blend of ancient and modern. To visit during cherry-blossom season is the dream.’Read more: Red Magazine »
