The Big Trip

Here is my 2018/2019 travel warning!

As you know I turn 40 and in the autumn of 2018 I will have an empty nest for the first time in 19 years. Instead of staying at home lonely and miserable I am going to leave the nest too and travel for 40 weeks!!!!!

I am going see the world (well the bits I want too) & it would be great if you could come and see some of it with me! 

I want some chilled out beach holidays and sightseeing trips, I’m pretty flexible if you have kids and want to bring them that’s cool too….. 

If there is a destination on the list you want to come to you just need to reserve a destination by letting me know and that then it is be closed to others and the list updated. 

We can reserve hotel accommodations or Airbnb as soon as possible, but please know I am a holiday snob so we WILL NOT be slumming it, but will get the best value for money as always.

Here’s the boring bit: Booking

I would like to book flights and lock everything down as soon as possible and get the best flight deals when is it flight sale times (July, Sept & Dec/Jan), so bare that in mind and start saving!

If you think I have forgotten an amazing destination to visit please let me know as there is always room to add more places.

Here’s the fun part: The list!
