Plans for this holiday season 2017/2018

The holidays start in 3 days and 5 hours. Not that I’m counting…

Our plans for this holiday season includes two week-long trips, England and Sweden. I’ve decided to take all two weeks off. (The Brit gets them off already #universityperks.) I’ve been a good girl, and after the high emotions and roller coaster of 2017, I decided I deserve it. I am so looking forward to being off work! Excited for relaxation, quality time with my Brit, for my reading plans and for our travel plans!

On Saturday we’re off to England to spend Christmas with the Brit’s family. We’ll be staying in his family home near Derby, enjoying the quiet English countryside. We’re also hoping to head up to the Peak District after Christmas. Spending boxing day at his brother’s home in Sheffield. I’ve never been to Sheffield so I’m looking forward to it! After nearly five years together, and many holidays down south, I finally want to visit Chatsworth. We shall see if we convince his parents to drive us there!

We’re back to Scotland a week later and the very next day we’re off to Sweden. That bit won’t be relaxing, but worth it! We’re spending a whole week in a cabin just outside Stockholm. I’m so looking forward to a week of darkness, wintery wonderland (a girl has hopes!), and new year’s celebration with friends in the Swedish capital! Best bit (for my blog and my wallet) is I got a sponsor, and the Brit and I will have Stockholm Passes to sightsee without breaking the bank!

I have one or two posts planned for the holiday time, but if I don’t get to them (#offtravelling), I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a great start to year 2018!

What are your plans for the holiday? Travel, relaxing, family time?xx

    Sounds like a busy but fun holiday season! Good for you for taking the two weeks off. I wish you both a Merry Christmas and “good slide into the new year,” as the Germans say. My husband and I are alone this year, just the two of us – for the first time in our lives. We’ve planned special meals – some traditional and some new – and we’ll still do all the things we normally do on Christmas Eve and Silvester. No family, no guests, no traveling, no stress, just a quiet holiday. We’re ok with that! 🙂

  • That sounds absolutely brilliant, Camilla! What a wonderful time with friends, family…. and ummm… SWEDISH CABIN! So looking forward to hear how it all goes. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season and Merry Christmas to you both!

  • Time off sounds so good right about now! I hope you enjoy all of your holidays and look forward to seeing what a fab time you’ve had!

  • So exciting!! I hope you have the best time. Wishing you a lovely holiday season 🙂

  • I do hope you get to Chatsworth. I went last Christmas and it’s the best time of year to see it as it’s all decorated for Christmas. It does get very busy though. We only found out we needed a timed ticket when we got there. It wasn’t a problem as we got to explore the gardens first, but if you have limited time you might want to book ahead.

  • Your holiday season looks exciting! Hope you got your winter wonderland! <3
