Wishes for 2018 | For Travel and Life

image of stockholm - wishes for 2018

I’m starting 2018 in a much nicer place than I did last year. As I’m writing this, I’m sitting in a warm little wooden cabin in Sweden, next to my Brit (now fiancé). Not bad indeed.

Goals, resolutions and wishes for 2018

>> Finish applying for PhDs. Though the real wish here is getting into a PhD programme and starting in the autumn.
>> Get my blog groove back. I’ve accomplished so many of my goals in the last year, however blogging has fallen behind a bit.
>> Launch a monthly newsletter.
>> Actually release one of my Scottish guidebooks.
>> Do a Sprint Triathlon in Scotland.
>> Read 52 books.

Travel plans and wishes for 2018

We already have quite a few trips that have been planned :
I’m off to Wrocław later this January with a Polish friend.

The Brit and I will be going home in April, so it’ll be lovely to see friends and family again. We are also debating going to Canada either in the summer or for Christmas.

We’re all booked to spend a week in Cuba with my parents. It’s been one of my dad’s dreams forever, so happy we’ll be discovering it together.

And these are not planned but may as well add in a few wishes on this wish list, right? :

>> PORTUGAL — We cancelled our trip to Porto last October so I’d love to make that up this year.

>> PARIS — The Brit hasn’t gone to Paris and I want us to go together.

>> INDIA — I’ve been meaning to visit a friend in Delhi!

>> LUXEMBOURG — Perhaps a nice long weekend in this tiny country?

>> SCOTLAND — As always I want to visit more of Scotland. Maybe doing the North Coast 500, go to Arran, and head up to Aberdeen for a visit.

What are your wishes for 2018?xx

  • So many exciting travels planned! X

  • Cuba has been on my bucket list for so long (my parents just booked a cruise there next week). It looks stunning! It’s a shame you had to cancel your trip to Porto, but I hope you get to visit Portugal. We visited twice last year (Lisbon and the Algarve) and loved them both so much!

  • So many wonderful places! I also hope to visit Paris this year, and will add a trip to the Philippines to my list as I’m hopefully going with work, and another sneaky long weekend or holiday with Adam hopefully as we didn’t go away last year! Alice xxx

  • Ahh you have some pretty exciting travel plans lined up – I especially can’t wait to see how you like Cuba! Good luck with those PhD applications, you can do it!!

  • Happy New Year! You’ll love Wroclaw, I just went this past summer! I’m so jealous you get to go to Cuba–it’s still hard for Americans to get there (and might get harder…). I hope 2018 is wonderful for you, looking forward to seeing what it brings for you! xo

  • Exciting plans – I definitely think there’s a lot of good in dreaming big because you never know where the year will take you 🙂
