2018 Travel Inspiration

2018 Travel Inspiration- Bucket List Travel


2017 has been a great year for travel taking me to both foreign isles and the peaks of home.
There is something about exploring new places; it both relaxes and invigorates, inspires and challenges.  You don’t need to be a seasoned adventurer to experience this; simply getting away from the pressures and stresses of home-life can change your perspective, give you time to see things from a different point of view.   I think this is why I really love travel so much – travel is stepping outside your circle, which ultimately allows you to interrogate that circle and all it encompasses.

This year I have been lucky enough to experience many places away from home, both for work and for pleasure.

Spanish languages dominated with Seville, Granada, and Cuba delighting my holiday allowance; the valleys and caves of the Peak District delighted both Pooch and I, even if we got more than a little soggy whilst exploring; and with, days spent at work, my evenings in New York, Liverpool and Berlin were filled with amazing restaurants and some sneaky sightseeing.   And of course, there were countless trips down to Devon; the English Riviera and its many, many seafood restaurants.

And now, as we draw to the year’s end, I’m looking forward to 2018 travels and all they may bring.   I won’t lie, I’ve been planning them for a while already – I have the longest list of travel aspirations but 2018’s are planned around friends and family; about quality time spent with those who have moved abroad, or who I simply want to spend more time with.

So here it is, my 2018 bucket list if you will:

1. Stockholm 

2. Madrid 

3. Lake Ohrid, Macedonia

4. Amsterdam 

5. North Cornwall

6. York

Will they happen? Who knows. I’m going to try my hardest to make the plans come reality but 2018 holds a lot of change and what is life if perfectly planned?

Do you have 2018 travel plans? Please share so I can gather some more inspiration!

    Looks like you’ve seen a lot of places in 2017, a few on there I saw this year too. I second Steph’s comment, Amsterdam is amazing! We’re hoping to finally get to Australia this year ?

    You’ve been to such wonderful places. I live in Liverpool currently & it’s easy to forget to appreciate what is right in front of you. I love Albert Docks x

    You certainly did some travelling this year. I got as far as Devon. Not so easy with two kids but we are definitely going to get their passports sorted for 2018. Happy New Year!

    Your pictures are beautiful, you’ve definitely been very lucky this year with i’m super jealous. Can i come in your luggage in 2018? 😉

    I want to visit Amsterdam too next year. Have a few different places I’d like to see

    Your list is great – I agree. I just wonder that why you in many cases visit only capitals. More interesting places are outside them. One simple example: Many stays in Helsinki, Finland. Why they do not take train to Kemi where is World’s Biggest Snow Castle? Inside there is ice bar, chapel, snow hotel where to spend night etc.

    Best Snow Castle photos

    Nearby there are Santa village where You can take reindeer rides and even patriciate in reindeer race free. These are experiences, which capital do not offer.

    Happy and safe travel in 2018.

    Looks like you had a good year with your travels. I’ve never been to the peak district and yet it’s not that far from me. Im hoping now my daughter will be 1 next year we can explore more of the UK and have some holidays.

    You definitely had an amazing travel year in 2017, photos are so lovely. I managed to cross off 6 countries last year which i’m quite proud of given i’m a working mom. This year i’m already booked to Hong Kong and China in February. Cheers to an amazing 2018
