When we reached our 2 years in the U.K. milestone, we came to the realization that we might only have one year here left. And proceeded to go on a bit of a travel planning frenzy. I know I’ve said this before, but with a whole continent to explore, it’s so hard to decide where to go next.
We’ve got a trip to Kraków coming up in the next few weeks, which will be packed with adventures, sight seeing and hopefully plenty of Christmas markets. I’m excited to take a vodka tour (which will hopefully end better than the one in St Petersburg) and explore the city and Salt mines.
In December, of course, its back to the states for the holidays and wedding, with a week in St Lucia for the honeymoon. I can’t wait.
We’ve finally booked tickets to Rome in March, which I’m very excited about. A long weekend will only scratch the surface of the eternal city, but I’m excited for Roman ruins and gelato. The challenge will be not to try to see too much because you could spend weeks sightseeing!
We’re working on flights to the south of France for February. A long weekend wandering the French Riviera, touring vineyards and visiting Monte Carlo will be something to look forward to after our long trip back to the states.
In April, well be walking the Cotswold Ring, staying at B&Bs at night, and hiking through countryside during the day. It will be a relaxing break, light on sightseeing.
May is still a work in progress. We want to dedicate a week to Slovenia and Croatia, but there’s so much to see! Between Bled, Plitvice, Hvar and Dubrovnik, there’s a lot of ground to cover and so many forms of transportation required. But we’ll get there, and it will be worth the planning effort. Any tips on visiting Croatia would be much appreciated.
The early May bank holiday still hasn’t been allocated a destination yet… but I guess there’s time…
What holidays have you planned?
