The Maldives is on most travel bucket lists, but it may surprise you that it can be affordable, especially with airfares such as these. I have been fortunate to visit three islands in the Maldives, and I am already planning a return visit – it is paradise!

Enjoy a morning dip from your over water bungalow, relax on pristine white sand beaches, go snorkelling or diving in the Indian Ocean, and witness some of the best sunsets in the world.

A post shared by Sarah Slattery – Travel Expert (@the_travel_expert)

Cape Town is another favourite destination of mine. I went there on honeymoon and returned in 2018 for a family holiday. We stayed in Cape Town, visited the wine lands, travelled the Garden Route and finished off with a safari at Amakhala Game Reserve. Home to one of the best cities in the world, amazing wildlife, stunning beaches and plenty of adventure, South Africa is a superb holiday destination.
