So here we are. 2019. Two thousand and nineteen. How did that happen? As always, the past year has absolutely flown by but I want to take the time to reflect as usual.
I’m not necessarily one to count countries (I have the ‘been’ app on my phone to keep track but I don’t have a target number ofcountries that I want to visit) but this year I managed to visit 6 new countries! Here’s a quick sentence on each:
Croatia (Pula and Plitvice Lakes National Park) – A better colosseum than Rome (apparently) and lakes so blue you won’t believe your eyes.
Italy (Venice) – The perfect place to wander for hours, only stopping for pizza and an Aperol Spritz…
Slovenia – Lake Bled and the surrounding area is like something out of a fairytale –breathtakingly beautiful.
Slovakia (Bratislava) – Not the prettiest but it’s got an interesting history and plenty of places to buy cheap beer and food – what’s not to love?!
Austria (Vienna) – You’ll spend the entire time looking up at the amazing buildings. The neck ache is worth it.
Hungary – A ‘been but not seen’. I literally ran around the tri-point of Slovakia, Austria and Hungary and walked into Hungary for a few minutes. I’m counting it though haha…
I’ve got two European breaks squeezed in before Brexit hits (if it happens at all…) but hopefully there won’t be too much disruption to my love of a city break! What are your plans for the year ahead?
