2018 is going to be the first year in while where I don’t have to worry about assignments or University deadlines, so I’ll be able to dedicate more time to travel during my time off work. Whether this be visiting new countries, paying more attention to my travel scrapbook or collecting more PopOut Maps, I am determined to focus more on travel this year. In light of this, I have decided to set myself some travel goals for the year. I always find that goals motivate me to go out more and see the world!
1. Make the most of the Eurostar and Eurotunnel.
Living in Canterbury, the Eurostar is only 15 minutes away by train and the Eurotunnel is only 30 minutes drive away. In 2018 we are determined to make use of these alternative methods of travel to flying and in the first half of the year alone, we have a trip to Disneyland Paris via Eurostar and a road trip to Bruges via Eurotunnel planned.
2. Visit more places in the UK.
3. Visit multiple countries in one day.
This will be happening in February, as we’re going to take the train to Vienna for a day, whilst we’re visiting Bratislava. When I went interrailing in 2016, I loved the thrill of being able to hop from country to country via the trains, so I’d really like to do it again in 2018.
4. Put some money aside for a Florida trip with Stuart in the future.
We’ve both been to Florida multiple times with our families, but we really want to go together at some point. In 2018, we’re going to put our spare change into a jar and any extra cash into the “Florida Fund”, so that our dream can become a reality in the near future.
