My 2020 travel plans
| AD – post contains affiliate links |
I love love love writing this post every January because it gives me chance to look at all my upcoming trips and to get excited about them! This year I think I might have more trips planned early than any other year – and some really exciting ones too! So read on to find out where I’m heading this year…
My first trip of 2020 and I can’t wait. We are going on an all inclusive package holiday which we don’t usually do but I’m really looking forward to just relaxing, eating and drinking after a busy few months. Also, some winter sun never goes amiss!
We’ll be heading to the highlands to stay in a couple of hotels near Edinburgh. We’ve been wanting to visit Edinburgh for the longest time – we actually had a trip booked there a couple of years ago which we had to cancel as our dog was poorly.
We’re taking a dog friendly break with Alfie to explore ‘Paws in the Vale’ – miles and miles of beautiful beaches, wooded valleys and varied landscapes in the Vale of Glamorgan. We’re all looking forward to lots of trails and strolling along the dog friendly beaches.
We’ll be staying at the beautiful The Bear Hotel in the Vale of Glamorgan.
One Saturday I was at home by myself and I was feeling a little bit down. And do you know what I do when I’m down? I BOOK HOLIDAYS! I saw quite a few people talking about the Wowcher Mystery Breaks for £99 and I just booked one. I’ve heard mixed reports since but I loved the novelty of getting a surprise trip and we’ve never visited Prague before.
I love getting my Lake District hiking staycations in and this time I’m heading up with my girlfriends. I met Iona Adventuring at a Yugen Explore meet up last year and joined her walking group on Facebook. It is based in Scotland so unlikely that I’ll be able to make it on regular walks but some of the members are meeting up for a hiking weekend in the Lakes and I’m really looking forward to it.
South of France
Instead of the annual family trip to Portugal this year, we’ll be relocating to a villa in the South of France. I can’t wait to spend some quality time with my nearest and dearest and explore all the beautiful little towns on the coast.
We are trying one of The Sun holidays for the first time ever! We’ll be staying on a caravan park with my boyf’s family and I’m hoping we’ll be doing all the traditional British seaside things – 2p machines, bingo and fish and chips on the beach. It’s been years since I’ve stayed in a caravan and I love them – they’re so cosy! We’ll also be taking Alfie with us for a dog friendly break.
USA road trip
It’s the biggie! My bestie is getting married in Vegas this year and so we’ll be heading over there and then tagging on a California road trip afterwards. This is a trip that I’ve wanted to do for quite a while (check out my USA bucket list!) and so I really can’t wait. After we’ve partied in Vegas (and I organise the best hen do ever…sorry, bachelorette party!) we’re heading to Santa Monica, Monterey, Yosemite National Park and San Francisco.
Do you have any suggestions of things I can’t miss in the places I’m visiting this year? Let me know in the comments.
