Being a ‘travel blogger’ who hasn’t actually travelled properly since 2015 means I’ve been taking my own advice on this for the past four years! Moving city and buying our first house has really put the strain on our bank accounts, so here we are – well out of practice and full of cabin fever. If you’re not travelling this year and aren’t sure what to do with your time, here’s a little inspiration from travel-deprived me, to you. 1 // Try that ‘let’s go sometime’ place You’ll think you’ve ‘been there done that’ with your town or city, but there’s bound to be somewhere you’ve meant to visit but…
If you’re anything like me, you’re the sort of traveller that gets in a flap over making sure everything is absolutely, positively, completely ready to go. There’s none of this “I’ll do it tomorrow” business when it comes to my travel preparation list, and I can’t sleep if I know there’s something to be done in the morning.
