At the beginning of last year I did a blog post on my travel plans for 2018, so I thought I’d do something similar for 2019! I’ve already managed to get a few little trips booked in for this year which I’m very excited about, but I’m also starting to think about a bigger holiday for 2020.

January is always the looongest month ever because everyone is skint after Christmas and the weather is cold and miserable and everything is back to normal and awful.  But ho hum… it can’t be long now until summer, right? Despite payday being practically forever away, I thought I’d put together a little wishlist of things I’ve had my eye on lately and plan to splash out on…
