What’s on your travel wish list? Over the past few years, I’ve been crossing some amazing places off my travel wish list. Paris? Check! Bali? Check! Santorini? Check! Of course as soon as I cross one location off my list, I find a new spot to replace it.
Right now, I’m so excited to partner with Aeroplan to help announce their amazing Moments Worth Millions Contest. From August 14th until September 17th they are giving away one million Aeroplan Miles to 5 lucky winners. Can you imagine what you could cross off your travel wish list with that many miles?!
To enter, all you need to do is follow @Aeroplan and share a photo of your favourite travel moments on social media using the hashtag #withAeroplan. You can find the full details on how to enter the contest here.
With one million miles, you certainly could plan an amazing trip! So in honour of the Moments Worth Millions Contest, today I’m sharing the places I would visit if I had one million miles.
Here are the top three places that are currently on my travel wish list.
1. Costa Rica
Since I live in the prairies, I have always planned a winter trip to somewhere warm each year. We have already traveled to the Caribbean and Mexico many times so I would love to travel even further south and visit Costa Rica for a change of scenery.
I’ve always heard Costa Rica described as a country perfect for adventurers. There are incredible volcanoes, lush rainforests and crystal blue waters. A few activities that would definitely be on my Costa Rica bucket list would be zip lining through the jungle, surfing and of course taking some time to relax on all the gorgeous beaches.
I would love to visit Africa within the next few years, but to be honest, I haven’t decided yet exactly which countries I’d want on my itinerary. For years I have sponsored a child in Uganda and I would love to visit the orphanage that has been doing such amazing work in that area. Other bucket list spots in Africa that I am drawn to include Giraffe Manor in Kenya and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Of course you can’t visit Africa without going on a safari to see the spectacular wildlife so that is a definite must-do!
3. New Zealand
New Zealand probably wouldn’t have been on my radar as a top place I’d want to travel but my husband has been dreaming of visiting for years. He loves exploring beautiful mountains and epic scenery – which of course New Zealand has plenty of! I’m hoping to visit once Emilia is a little bit older since I think it would be the perfect family vacation. I imagine renting a camper van and driving across the country, stopping to hike mountains and enjoy the incredible views.
Now that you know what’s on my travel wish list I’d love to know what locations are on your list! If you had a million Aeroplan miles what would you spend it on? Where would you travel to and who would you bring?
And remember, make sure to enter the Moments Worth Millions contest before September 17th so you have a chance at winning one of the amazing grand prizes – one million miles!
