• 2017 Travel Bucketlist {Visit 17 places in 2017} Travels Thus Far 

    Visiting 17 places in 2017 was a travel bucketlist I put together at the beginning of the year. Though life can be complicated and we’re never sure if we will be able to accomplish set goals, that shouldn’t stop us from trying. Regular readers know how much I love to travel, just thinking about it gets me excited and rearing to go. I love nothing more than jetting off but I have realised Home has a lot to offer. I live in one of the most amazing countries on the planet which every day someone fights to get in. It has been my intention that for the remainder of the 2017 I focus on Home bound travelling. I wont completely give up on flying off abroad but I will be minimizing my visit to the airport.

    2017 Travel Bucketlist {Visit 17 places in 2017} Travels Thus Far 

    As it’s been forever and a day since I last gave you an update on 17 places to visit in 2017, here is my update. I am quite surprised how much I have accomplished with only 3 full months left before the new year. I am hoping to tick most of the items off my list but it won’t be the end of the world if I don’t.

    Where I have been thus far

    When I last gave you an update, I had only been to Birmingham and to Budapest. That was February, over 6 months ago now and since then I have been to a number of places.

    • Bath, I had been wanting to visit for the longest time and two weekends ago I did. It is such a beautiful city, we were able to see the Roman Baths, the Abbey and many more places. I highly recommend this Victorian city, a must see for sure.
    • Bali, as 2017 was and is a momentous year for me I felt it was important to celebrate in style. I booked myself a 10-day break to Bali and had the most amazing time ever.
    • Berlin, for many years I had been waiting to visit Berlin and this year I just had to. I enjoyed visiting all the must see places including the remains of the Berlin wall.
    • Bucharest, an underrated city which is a must see and I can not wait to go back.
    • Budapest, it was a last-minute decision but a wise one for sure. I saw all the wonderful places but the highlight was spending almost 4 hours in a thermal bath.
    • Cyprus, this trip taught me so much more than I had thought possible. I realised I prefer to travel alone or max 3 people than 7. There is so much to see in Cyprus but also be ready some parts are no longer as beautiful.
    • Stockholm, one of the most expensive places to visit but it was definitely worth it.

      That is a pretty impressive list! I love traveling and can’t wait to visit Europe again. I love the south of Spain and have not been there since I moved to the USA and I am dying to go back with the kids.
      We went to the Dominican Republic for Spring, Orlando and Ohio in the summer , but my heart is set on Italy and Spain!

      I didn’t really set myself any challenges this year except from making the most of all of my oppurtunities, you’ve done so well this year x

        Thanks Valmag, I would be excited if I completed them on but all good

    26. September 26, 2017 / 1:14 pm

      I am impressed with all the places you’ve been. I don’t have a huge travel bucket list because I just don’t have the funds to travel as much as I’d like. I don’t think we’re going anywhere else this year, but next I know we’re going to Ohio!

      • September 26, 2017 / 4:06 pm

        Aww thanks Amber, have fun in Ohio

        Thank you, I hope you enjoy the road trip. I hope to do a US road trip one day
