I mentioned in a post, this year I would not be setting myself goals. Instead just living life a little more laid back, seeing where things take me. Whilst I have no travel plans this year bar some weekend breaks in my favourite cities and hen dos I am keen to get a few ideas down so I can start planning a few things to work towards in 2018. These are the five cities I would love to visit in 2018.
Bath – Bath is a city I have wanted to visit for a while. I have spent quite a bit of time in the Southwest over the years but have never had the chance to visit Bath. The city is so picturesque, I would love to tie it in with a visit the thermal spa as well. I often find the UK breaks the hardest to organise or it is often difficult to find people who want to join so I am popping this at the top of my agenda.
Berlin – I hear nothing but wonderful comments about Berlin. I am unsure whether this city would have been of much interest to me before I heard so many glowing reviews. I would like to see a bit of rural Germany too. A lot of my trips to Europe tend to be the main cities without experiencing any real culture. I would like to visit my friend who lives over there and possibly Munich too. Although I have a feeling it will need to be one or the other.
New York – The big one. Although possibly the one I see happening the least. This year I have my kitchen going in. I also want to start being realistic with my savings. So we shall see about this one. New York has been at the top of my travel list for so long I feel I should just get it booked and enjoy it but we shall see. I also cannot decide whether to visit in the summer or at Christmas as I can imagine they are two very different experiences. Opinions and feedback on when to go and where to stay would be invaluable.
Dublin – Earlier in the month my girls and I visited Dublin for the day. Ryanair was selling flights for £5 and the journey is only 40 minutes from East Midlands airport. It was all planned to perfection, I was so excited. We landed early on a Wednesday morning but it wasn’t long until I realised I was coming down with a sickness bug and continued to feel unwell for the rest of the day. Going for the day was a perfect amount of time. The city is rather expensive so not having to pay for accommodation was a massive help. This year I would love to make another trip over to Dublin for the day again. It is such a beautiful city with some lovely shops. I would also like to do the mandatory Guinness trip.
Dubrovnik – I went on holiday to Croatia about ten years ago and I still think back to how beautiful the country is. I have wanted to visit Dubrovnik for a while now, the perfect combination of city life positioned on the coast. It always ensures a hot holiday, with plenty to see and time to have a little sunbath and swim.
