We got a bit enthusiastic with our booking for the first half of 2018. It’s our last year in the UK, so we wanted to make the most of it! (Even if making the most of it means accidentally booking too many days off work. Oops). Our destinations this year are further flung and a bit more challenging to plan in some cases, but I can’t wait. Any advice or tips on what to see or do are always appreciated.
To escape the January dreariness, we are headed for a long weekend in Madrid, with a night in Toledo to experience the gorgeous medieval city.
We’re meeting friends from the US (and some from the UK) for a week of skiing in the worlds largest ski area. I absolutely cannot wait!
Bratislava & Vienna
Since the two cities are only an hour apart by train, we’re visiting both! I’m looking forward to great beer, hearty food and classical music!
We’re heading to the home of many of my favourite foods for a long weekend and hopefully getting a chance to see an active volcano.
It was so hard deciding what to see in Romania, our long weekend plan turned into a week. We’re visiting Bucharest, Brasov and Sibiu, and planning to visit plenty of castles, hike and hopefully see some bears.
Bosnia & Herzegovina
My biggest regret of last years Croatia trip was not crossing the border, so to make up for it, we’re spending a few days in Sarajevo and Mostar.
Both sets of parents are meeting us in Italy for a whirlwind tour through Venice, the Cinque Terre, Siena and Florence.
The World Cup
We got tickets in the random draw to two matches in Moscow and one in Kazan, so I’m looking forward to exploring those cities and taking my first overnight train!
It sounds insanely busy to see it all written down but I can’t wait! We’re also looking into traveling to Budapest, Greece and Morocco, if we can find time to fit them in.
Where are you headed in 2018? Have you visited any of these places? What shouldn’t we miss?
