It’s a New Year so that obviously means a whole new load of trips to plan for. I’m more of a ‘short-break’ kind of girl with the aim to visit as many places as possible within a year. I have such high hopes for 2017 and I hope that I can visit more destinations than I did in 2016. So here’s a list of a few places that I’m hoping to see this year.
I’m fully aware that this was mentioned in a blog I wrote many many moons ago about travel destinations on my bucket list but Paris remains a dream location for me which I have yet to visit. It has so many beautiful cityscape views, iconic buildings and of course, French food! I’m hoping to finally book my trip to Paris and visit in April this year with my best friend.
I visited Rome when I was much younger and unfortunately, I don’t remember it as much as I would like to. One thing that I would ideally like to go back to and see would be the Trevi Fountain. I remember being absolutely mesmerised by it as a child so I’d love to see it once again as an adult. I’m hoping to take a summer trip to Italy and stop off in Rome so if all goes to plan, I’ll be seeing a lot of Southern Italy this year.
I visited Berlin in 2015 and fell completely in love with the German city. So this year, I’m really hoping to visit Germany once again and explore more of the German culture in a different city, Munich. Ideally, I want to visit around Christmas time so that I can visit the Christmas markets, so this would be more of a festive and more wintery holiday than the others.
I’ve heard positive reviews about Edinburgh more frequently over the last year and the Medieval buildings and evidence of historic culture is really appealing to me. I would love to take a city trip in Great Britain again this year and I think Edinburgh would be the perfect city to visit. Castles and beautiful views? Sign me up.
It’s not really a weekend away kind of goal but Stonehenge is one of the places in the UK that I really want to visit and just haven’t got around to seeing yet. An iconic historical sit and it’s only about a two hour drive from where I live so I don’t really have many excuses as to why I shouldn’t visit this year.
There you have it! Those are the main places I want to visit this year but I’m sure that as the year goes on and things start getting ticked off, I’ll want to do more. Where are you hoping to travel to this year?
