5 travel goals for 2018

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!

2018 travel goals

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.

We’re all guilty of it, but sometimes we neglect tourist sites closer to home because we’re always dreaming about visiting far off places. In 2018, I am aiming to visit lots more towns and cities 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.

5. Grow my travel book collection.

In 2018, I am going to be purchasing travel guides for all of the new cities that we are visiting. Most of the time I pick them up in second hand or charity book stores, as that’s the most affordable way to purchase multiple travel books and there’s something nostalgic about purchasing “well-loved” books. Travel authors know their stuff and it’s always good to get recommendations from the professionals!
Do you have any travel goals for 2018? If you do, I’d love to hear them in the comments.
Thanks for reading my blog today.

    I do wish I lived nearer the Eurostar, it must be so handy for nipping away!
