2017 in Travel

2017, much like 2016, has been good to me in terms of travel. I've visited four new countries (Poland, Sweden, Luxembourg and Czechia) and seen more of Europe. It's safe to say that I've made the most of living 15 minutes away from Stansted airport.

Our first trip of the year was Warsaw in April. I loved the Polish capital city, and was so excited to finally visit Poland after wanting to visit for years. It's a different city to ones I've visited before, with picturesque streets in close proximity to sky scrapers but it had a nice vibe to it. The food was good, and we had such a lovely couple of days exploring. If you're looking for an affordable city break, Warsaw is one to go to!


In May I went away twice. My first tip was to Valencia with Dan. Valencia is a pretty city, but it definitely wasn't my favourite of the Spanish cities I've been to. It was perfect for a sunny break in May, and if you've been to Madrid or Barcelona and are looking for another place to visit in Spain, Valencia is worth adding to your list.


A few days later I was jetting off to Stockholm with my friend Mary. I fell in love with the capital of Sweden, it's such a cool city to visit. It was lovely to be so close to the water all the time, and there is so much to see in Stockholm. Museum island is definitely worth a visit. Stockholm surprised me, and in a really pleasant way. I'd love to explore more of Sweden in the future!


My first trip in August was to Luxembourg with my mum. I'm not sure I'll ever go to a city as beautiful as Luxembourg - it truly was a fairy tale village. It's quite a small city, but we spent three lovely days there. We could have easily taken a trip out of the city centre but we stayed at a lovely hotel with a spa and pool so decided to have a bit of a restful time as well.


Prague was my final trip abroad this year. I went for four days with my dad, and we had a lovely time exploring the Czech capital! We walked miles, and saw some beautiful views across Prague. It was a much bigger city than I thought and there was so much to see. Prague was a very beautiful city, and I feel like whilst we saw so much, we only scratched the surface!


I've had such a fun time this year exploring more of Europe. There are so many different and vibrant cities, and I'm looking forward to exploring further in the future.

Where did you travel to in 2017?
