Places I’m Planning On Travelling To In 2017

If nothing else, I want to do some travelling this year. I’ve already started saving up and although it’s not going to be easy (I spend way too much on food and makeup, but who doesn’t?) I’m more determined than ever. I’ve realised that you don’t have to have a lot in your pocket – if you want to travel, DO IT. It’s all about finding those amazing holiday deals and spending your money wisely. That’s what I intend to do anyway. There are so many places I’d love to visit, but I have to be realistic about it.

Here’s what 2017 looks like:

Alicante, Spain

The purpose of this holiday would be to visit family so Alicante is a very convenient location. It’s worth mentioning that I’ve never been to Spain before for many reasons, the main one being that I’ve always assumed I wouldn’t be able to handle the heat, which is why I’m planning on going towards the end of May and staying for 7 nights. I do get bored easily, so I expect I won’t stay there for the entire time. It’s not far to travel to Calpe or Benidorm. As you can tell nothing is planned as of yet as I’ll probably be looking for last minute deals nearer the time. Either way, bring on May!

Paris, France

Since reading Paris For One by Jojo Moyes I’ve been filled with an urge to explore Paris. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, I always see photos of the Eiffel Tower on my Instagram feed. And every time I think about how amazing it would be to witness the beauty of Paris in person rather than through a screen. A weekend trip would probably be ideal, giving me enough time to explore on a low-budget. Day trips are quite cheap too, as it’s a quick journey it means that I’d still be able to explore the sights and eat some good food. Now I can’t stop thinking about croissants.

Brighton, England

I’ve been to Bournemouth, Clacton, Southend… but I’ve never been to Brighton and I really want to tick it off my list. I think out of all the seaside resorts, I’d probably like Brighton the most. It seems like it has more to offer. There’s no reason why I shouldn’t go this year.

Bath, Somerset

A weekend trip to Bath would be amazing. There is lots to do there and I’ve always wanted to visit the Roman Baths. If work starts stressing me out, I’ll probably take a trip there to relax and get away from everything for a bit. I’d love to think I could afford to book into a Spa hotel but that would be slightly unrealistic.

York, England

I was talking to a friend a couple of weeks ago about travelling and she told me that one of her favourite places in the UK is York. She said it’s a great destination for a solo trip and that she usually spends the weekend there. I’d be interested in visiting Clifford’s Tower and going on a boat trip! I also like the look of some of the cafes/restaurants so I feel I would really enjoy it.

These are just some of the places I would like to visit this year. Honestly, I have no idea if I will tick them all off. I hope so but it depends on whether I can afford it. I may even surprise myself and travel to more places than I could have imagined. Where would you like to travel?
