The Flexicover Team’s 2015 wish list
Published: 26 January 2015
The world of travel is filled with amazing sights, fascinating people and unforgettable experiences. If you had to choose only one place to visit this year, which destination would you pick and why? We posed this very question to some of the Flexicover team and this is what they had to say:
Pat, Technical Services Analyst:
My idea of the perfect vacation has always been an island getaway. Clear blue waters, white sandy beaches and plenty of glorious sunshine. So, my top destination for this year has to be the Maldives. Some of my friends spent their honeymoon there over New Years and they had the best experience. It’s a really popular destination right now, and it’s easy to see why. Imagine staying in a water-villa over the Indian Ocean, indulging in delicious, fresh seafood and spending days swimming, snorkelling and surfing! Bliss!
Shamil, Affiliate Schemes Co-ordinator:
Bali! If I could go anywhere this year, Bali would be my first choice. I have heard so many wonderful things about it, in particular that there are some excellent diving sites and coral reefs; I would love to explore those! The beaches look breathtakingly beautiful and the sunrise and sunset look spectacular. But it’s not just about the shoreline, there’s so much culture to absorb in Ubud amongst the rice paddies and steep ravines in the foothills of the Gianyar regency so I would love to experience that. I think Bali would have everything I look for in a holiday including some great nightlife in Kuta too!
Des, Broking Manager:
The best destination for 2015, I think, is New York. I love cities because they just buzz with vibrancy and life and I would love to visit the Big Apple, especially as many rate it the best city in the world! Walking through Times Square, cycling in Central Park, shopping in Soho & 5th Avenue and then catching a show in Broadway all sound wonderful to me! Combining this with fantastic food (I love burgers and pancakes) would be the icing on the cake! To tick it off my list I would of course take the ferry to the Statue of Liberty, go to the top of the Empire State and take my son ice skating at Rockefeller! New York is definitely on my list this year!
Ben, Sales Executive:
Hawaii would be my absolute favourite place to visit this year. I can think of nothing better than heading to the Pacific, staying in a luxury resort and enjoying the exotic islands of Aloha! I would spend my days relaxing, topping up my tan on the beach, sipping cocktails, and having a go at some water sports, kayaking perhaps! I’m after that picture postcard holiday this year and I think Hawaii would be just the place.
There you have it. Maldives, Bali, New York and Hawaii are the top destinations for our Flexicover team for 2015. What places are on your wish list this year?
