As has become somewhat of a tradition at the start of the year, it’s time for me plan out my travel for 2018. This year is a little different to normal, well a lot different I suppose, in the fact that I’ve quit my job and am spending the year traveling … eeeekkkkk! Unlike previous years there are no maybe’s just definites. So without further ado, lets do this!
I’m starting this year of adventure with some much needed downtime back in the UK. It felt like all I did in 2017 was work (308 out of 365 days to be precise) so I’m very much looking forward to going home to see family and friends, eat all the food and not do a lot else.
I still can’t believe this is happening. Australia has felt like a pipe dream for so long, but it’s finally happening. I have my working holiday visa and a rough plan, and I’m heading down under for a year of adventures and doing as little work as I can manage. I’m looking forward to discovering new cities, and experiencing a winter that doesn’t involve constant rain and near freezing temperatures.
Well more specifically The Rockies, and Vancouver. Two of my good friends are getting married in October in the beautiful Canadian Rockies, so I will be venturing back from Australia to watch those two goobers get married. I’ll also be using this opportunity to explore the beautiful Rockies and maybe even spend a day or two in Calgary. As well as squeezing in some time in Vancouver to catch up with my faves before I evade the dreary Vancouver winter to return to the Australian sunshine.
It’s the first time in a long time that I am not working around vacation time to plan my travels and it feels very freeing. The thought of going to Australia is slightly daunting but the feeling of excitement is far outweighing anything else. This year is going to be very different for me and I couldn’t be more eager to see how it goes … Stay tuned to see how it all goes.
What are your 2018 travel plans?
