5 cities I’d visit twice

It’s great to explore the globe and discover new and exciting places, but there’s something to be said for re-visiting the cities you loved the first time around. I don’t see anything wrong with going back to a city that stole my heart at some point in my life, particularly when cities are ever evolving.

There are so many cities still left to see, but here are 5 I’ve already been to and would love to see again.

#1. New York

Ahh, New York. Who wouldn’t go back to the Big Apple for a second bite? The first time I visited there was no High Line, no pedestrianised Times Square, and we only got to see half the stuff we could have done. I’d give my right arm to be walking through Central Park with a giant pretzel and an armful of Bloomingdales bags in a New York minute.

#2. Barcelona

Another city with so much to do and so little time spent there. We had 4 days to explore in the glorious sunshine and only managed a third of the things on our list. The next time I get there I’ll make sure to see the fountain at Montjuic, make a Friends reference at Tibidabo, and do some photography around the Gothic Quarter.

#3. San Francisco

The place that I miss the most. San Francisco was the last stop on our Trek America tour and even though we stayed for an extra two days, it just wasn’t enough. We didn’t get to see the Painted Ladies, visit Amoeba Records, or eat clam chowder. I know, I know. It’s like we never went there at all! I left my heart in San Francisco, so if anyone fancies sending me back to get it, let me know.

#4. Edinburgh

A quick day trip with friends from Glasgow was a delight. But I’d really love to experience Hogmanay in Edinburgh! I was super jealous of Travels of Adam’s participation in the torchlight procession this year. His pictures are spectacular and the whole thing looks amazing. This time next year, I’ll be there.

#5. Paris

A place I’ve already been several times, and somewhere I’ll continue to visit for years to come. I dream of retiring to a Parisian cottage, surrounded by fresh bread and succulent fruits. Oh, and a mountain of cheese. Is anyone else’s life goal to eat ALL the cheese?

Which cities do you love enough to see again? Tell me where…

      I am so desperate to go to Berlin! It’s so close yet I’ve never been there – shameful. It’s definitely on the list for this year. It will happen!

    That photo of San Francisco is amazing! I’m a bit hit and miss with Paris but need to visit again maybe to really bond with it ;) Barcelona on my must visit list and very keen to see Rome at some point!

      You will love Rome LV – it’s beautiful! Quite cheap to get there too, and lots of things to do once you’re there (mainly eating!).

    Nice to see NYC is #1! We are planning our first trip there for Christmas (coincidentally also our honeymoon!) I speak to so many people who have visited the city and everyone has their own nuggets of advise of what not to miss! What would be your number 1 top tip for us?

      Hi Hannah – congratulations! Christmas in New York is incredible and I think seeing the Rockerfella Plaza all lit up in December, with the ice rink and huge Christmas tree, would definitely be unmissable. Also, Central Park is super pretty during the winter! Have an amazing time – so desperate to go back to NY some day.
