Travel: My 2018 Travel Goals

As you’ve probably seen if you’re a regular reader of my blog, last week I posted a few Resolutions for the year ahead. Obviously, I wouldn’t be a very good travel blogger if I didn’t make an equally long list of all the travel-y things that I want to accomplish in 2018! Here goes…

VISIT A NEW COUNTRY
Of course, my go to whenever I want to go away is usually France- I’m comforted by the place and there’s always so much to do and explore there. However, in 2018 I’d love to visit a brand spanking new country that I’ve never visited before. There are quite a few countries that I have in mind, but I’m thinking along the lines of Scandinavia this year- I’d love to travel to Denmark and see The Little Mermaid monument in Copenhagen and I’d also love to go to the Blue Lagoon in Iceland at some point. Hopefully with some careful planning and a good deal, I’ll be able to go to one of these amazing new places with my partner in crime.

EXPLORE MORE OF FRANCE
I have been to A LOT of cities in France, but of course there are so many cities that I’d love to check out at some point over the course of my life. A city that’s been on my wish list for a while now is Carcassonne, a town close to the Franco-Spanish border. The flights there are relatively inexpensive and it’s the perfect little getaway for a couple.

VISIT 4 NEW PLACES IN THE UK
As Brits, we’re all so obsessed with visiting other countries and beautiful hotspots around the world that we forget just how beautiful OUR little island actually is. There are loads of teensy tiny towns and spectacular cities that I want to explore at some point in the coming year, including Stratford Upon Avon, Cambridge (and Oxford, for that matter), Edinburgh and Brighton. Our island has so much to offer and I really hope to take it up on that offer in 2018.

EXPLORE MORE OF GERMANY
In 2017, I visited 2 brand spanking new cities in Germany: Nuremberg, the city next to where my good friend Antonia lives, and Munich, a city just a short train ride away. I think that 2018 will be the year where I finally book to go and visit Berlin, a city that everyone I know has been to and loved. So many things about Berlin appeal to me- the food, the history and the fashion- and having the opportunity to explore it at some point would be fantastic and a year well spent. I’d also love to go back to Frankfurt at some point as it was a city I really loved when I visited there on my year abroad.

GO SOMEWHERE OR DO SOMETHING COMPLETELY OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE
I am quite a safe person. I tend to go to places that I know, eat the foods I know I like, and stick to doing things that I know I enjoy. I’m not quite sure what this particularly goal will be- maybe the situation will present itself to me – but I’m definitely going to attempt saying ‘yes’ to things that I probably wouldn’t have done in the past!
