I LOVE travelling, but I can’t seem to do it as much as I’d like to. This, I imagine, is a pretty common problem, and one that’s made better (and then worse) by planning ahead and daydreaming about future holidays. I’m very much a planner and a list person, so planning a trip for me is almost as much fun as the actual holiday itself (almost). I plan my budget, what to do and see as well as, of course, where to eat and drink. It doesn’t really matter if any of these things actually happen when I’m there – the planning part just makes me really happy and excited about the holiday so its worth it in its own right.
Most of my travel this year will fall on the second half of the year, which, of course, is very exciting as I still have so much to look forward to and so much researching to do! I won’t manage to leave Europe this year, but that’s completely fine with me – there’s SO many amazing places left in Europe, and even in the U.K., still to explore. I might be lucky enough to travel across the pond next year, but more on that on a later date when the plans are a bit clearer!
I’m heading to Margate in a few weeks with my friend, and we’re spending one night there exploring the seaside town. I’ve heard so many good things about Margate (and seen so many pretty pictures!) and I’m so glad I’m finally going. I can’t wait to be by the seaside again, eat ALL the ice cream and take ALL of the pictures. If you have any good tips, please send them my way!
This one isn’t a new spot for me, but one that I’m getting more and more fond of every time I visit. This time I’m only going for a day trip, but I’m intending to squeeze in as much food & drink as I possibly can. I’m looking forward to doing a bit of shopping on the laines, doing the compulsory stroll on the pier and having dinner with my friend who lives there, who, I hope, will know how to pick the perfect restaurant with all of her local knowledge!
Me, my best friend and another friend of hers are going for a week long trip to Venice, Verona and hopefully as many cities around Northern Italy as we can fit into our itinerary. I used to travel with my best friend a lot, but since living in different countries we haven’t really done it that much. We’ve sworn that this will change now, and so hopefully this will be the first of many trips to come!
I can’t wait to see Lake Garda, eat my weight in pizza and wake up early for at least one magnificent sunrise. If anyone has any tips on what to do in Verona (and which day trips are worth doing), let me know!
Yes, Italy again! Me and my boyfriend haven’t gone for a holiday together for a while, so we’ve planned a long weekend to take place sometime this Autumn. He’s always wanted to go to Rome, and even though I’ve been there a few times before, I don’t mind going back as it’s such a beautiful place. I can’t wait to see Fontana di Trevi again and wander around Trastevere. I’m definitely such a tourist but I love it!
I was debating whether or not to include this as I’m technically mostly going to see friends and family, but seeing as I’m using a week’s worth of annual leave for this I’m going to go ahead and call it a holiday!
I’m planning on being by the seaside as much as possible (can’t wait to visit Löyly again!), going to a block party and just seeing as much of my friends and family as possible. I’m also going to Flow Festival where Lana Del Rey is headlining – I can’t wait!
