My Dream Travel Wishlist for 2018

Since returning from America, I’ve spent the last couple of weeks looking at holidays and working out where I’d love to visit this year. Travel is always on my mind and I always have a long Travel Wishlist of places I’d love to explore. I currently have nothing solid booked for 2018, aside from Traverse in Rotterdam in May. As always, my 2018 Travel Wishlist is pretty unrealistic but it gives me something to work towards, right?

New Orleans & The Swamps of Louisiana #5

One of the main reasons for me booking the Southern BLT trip with Trek America was that it went to New Orleans.

Washington DC & Travelling Through Virginia #3

It’s time I got sorted and updated you all on my trip across America, right? I did have a few posts written up but they, unfortunately, got deleted from my MacBook! I’m actually nearly at the end of my massive trip and I’ve barely posted about it. There just hasn’t been enough hours in the day and time has flown by! Let’s go back to Day 5 which was my first day exploring Washington DC.
