This week’s Island Lover blogger comes all the way from Tasmania, Australia and has been globetrotting since the age of 13. Naming her blog World of Wanderlust, what we love about Brooke Saward is the fact that she gives super cool tips on what to do when traveling around the world.
Equipped with a tripod and an awesome camera, Brooke is not afraid to explore the places she travels on her own because just like us – she has a serious case of wanderlust. And if that’s not enough, she also makes video blogs to accompany her little adventures! As one of our favorite bloggers, we thought we’d share with you her travel essentials when she goes on her island getaways. Enjoy!
1. Where are your favorite beach destinations? Give us your top 3 and tell us why?
I absolutely love visiting beaches in Australia because this is where I call home!
However, my favourite beach destination would have to be Phuket, Thailand because I absolutely love the Thai people, Thai food, and it’s such an international tourist destination which makes it lots of fun year-round and you can meet people from all around the world. I know a lot of people prefer the ‘less touristy’ destinations which I do too, but I really love Phuket – especially Kata Noi beach!
My third favourite beach destination is a little unexpected and out of the ordinary, which is Lantau Island, Hong Kong. Hong Kong is still my favourite city in the world considering it is the first destination I travelled to when I was thirteen years old – so it has a special place in my heart! I absolutely love visiting Lantau Island, it shows a completely different side to Hong Kong away from the island and Kowloon.
2. What do you usually like to do when you’re on your beach trips? lounge? shop? surf?
I’m a bit more adventurous when it comes to any holiday – so I like to get outdoors and try any of the activities on offer! In all honesty I get quite bored lounging by the pool and catching rays. While I can’t surf, I’d love to learn how someday!
3. What would you say are your wardrobe essentials when on your beach holiday?
Sunscreen! A good hat, a good book, and a good attitude! Beach holidays were meant to be enjoyed so the most essential thing to take with you is a smile and a clear head!
4. What about beauty products? any specific skin care products? lip balm?
Lip balm for sure and that’s about as far as I would take it! I love having ‘time off’ make-up, especially when I’m on a beach holiday. However I always wear loads of sunscreen so I don’t burn my skin!
5. Where’s your next must-go beach holiday trip and why is this place a must-visit for you?
I really want to visit the Caribbean this year and I’d love to one day go to the Maldives, Bora Bora, and Fiji!
