I kicked off my 2018 travels with a trip to Abu Dhabi in March and after that, with a fluctuating income, no job over summer and moving house, seeing the world sort of fell by the wayside. Back on track since September however, I ventured to Prague in Czech Republic for an amazing five days, followed by a whistle stop, weekend tour of Warsaw in December. Whilst I am endlessly grateful for the chance to visit these places, I have made it a personal goal to up the travel ante in 2019.
So far for 2019 I’m not hanging around, rreturning from a girly trip to Amsterdam just six days into the new year.
Then in February for my birthday there is already a flight booked for four nights in Istanbul with my Mr.
With my man’s birthday following mine, early March will no doubt take us somewhere too. At the moment we have been looking at St Petersburg or perhaps Berlin or Venice.
As for the rest of the year I haven’t planned that far ahead yet, but I would love to get to see Barcelona with my man as it is a city we both love, and have been toying with the idea of visiting for the Grand Prix in May.
I tend to avoid travelling much in June, July and August as this is when most people do it, plus with school holidays children/families litter streets like cockroaches so I think I will focus on exploring some cities in the UK in summer 2019. I would like to get to get back to Edinburgh, see Bath, Cambridge and possibly even northern Scotland or Wales in the summer months whilst the snow is not on the ground.
As the year starts to cool down, I am keen to visit Budapest and Vienna in September. After needing to cancel a trip here in 2018, I really want to see these beautiful cities as soon as I can.
Christmas market trips are a must for me too. I would love to visit Cesky Krumlov in Czech Republic, Wroclaw in Poland or Nuremburg, Germany for the festivities in 2019.
Whilst we are busy planning, it’s always good to dream. That being said, I would also love to visit Baku in Azerbaijan, Persepolis in Iran and Rovaniemi in Finland. Let’s see what cards 2019 give me to play. Where would you like to go most of all in 2019? Perhaps you have some trips planned already? Let me know below what you are getting up to.
