2017 Travels

 One of my favourite feelings in the world is that feeling you get when you arrive in a new city to explore. You're full of the hope of the unexpected, and excited for all of the new things you are going to experience over the next few days. 2016 was a great year for me, full of that feeling. I explored 6 new cities; none of which I had ever been to before, and all of which I ended up loving!

 I'm hoping for more of the same in 2017. Whilst I might not make it to 6 completely new destinations, I already have 4 trips on the cards. Booking a city break, or holiday, gives me something to look forward to, and something to focus on. I love knowing that I will be pounding the streets of a foreign country with a travel guide in hand soaking up the culture (and hopefully some sunshine too!).

Warsaw, Poland

Dan and I are heading to Warsaw, Poland this bank holiday weekend. I'm so excited to explore a city that is in Poland! Warsaw has such an interesting, and incredibly upsetting, history but I am looking forward to learning more and paying my respects to those who fought so bravely in the Warsaw uprising. On a lighter note, I cannot wait to eat Pierogi and explore the old town.

Valencia, Spain

Valencia is my first destination in May. Dan and I are off for three days of sun and sangria at the end of May. Spain is a country I love, and I'm really excited to explore the third largest city! There's just something about Spanish cities that brings out a sense of love and excitement in me so I cannot wait to explore some more!

Stockholm, Sweden

Also at the end of May, is a trip to Stockholm. I'm jetting off with my friend from uni, Mary. On the itinerary is definitely the ABBA museum. I've never been to a nordic country so I'm excited to explore somewhere completely off my radar! Gamla Stan looks so enchanting so I'm really looking forward to exploring the old medieval town.

Prague, Czech Republic

My Dad and I are heading to Prague for four days in August. I'm so excited to explore the capital of the Czech Republic, it's been on my travel wishlist for ages. I've heard such good things about the city, so I'm looking forward to wandering through the Old Town and walking across the Charles Bridge. We'll obviously have to sample the local bevvies as well!

Where are you hoping to go this year?



  1. Woo you're doing well with your travel planning! I really need to get my act together. We have Jersey this weekend and then France in May and then a whole lot of nothing!!

    1. I'm doing well! Hopefully a few more trips to fit in this year. I hope you had a great time in Jersey! xx

  2. Wow! You have quite the packed travel schedule! Valencia sounds incredible- I love Spain but have never been there. I'm headed to the South of France in May and London for a few weekends but that's it!
