I am having a severe case of wanderlust at the moment!
I am really looking forward to my big trip to Japan later this year, but I want to be planning more trips and exploring more places as life is short and I want to see travel the world!
(while having a great job and a lovely home base to come back to each time – plus enough money to be able to afford to travel!)
So I’ve had an idea…
12 weekend trips in 12 months!
There are so many places I want to visit I think this could be a great way to shake things up in my life. There are weekends I sit down and think I could have done so much, but get caught up in the day to day cycle of life. This idea is extreme for me, but I like the idea of being busy and always having a trip to plan and look forward to. At the moment it’s an idea. I’m not 100% sure, but then think why do I need to be 100% sure, I can just go with it and see how it goes!
I have already listed where I think I want to go:
There are so many more places, but many of these have been near the top of list for a while so it makes sense to focus on those and add a few different ones in too.
This feel exciting!
I want to start planning already. I’ll need to look at flights, accommodation, sights to see, food and drink to try and find out about the history of each place. I’ll also need to see when is best to visit each place and if there are any events I should look to feature or look to avoid.
I plan on doing most trips on my own, but would be totally on board if any of my friends want to join me. I am going to be selfish though and make sure I am doing what I want to do, but I’m open to having company.
The main thing I need consider is my finances as I would like to have a bit more savings behind as an emergency fund before I start extreme trip planning. But then I think to my self LIFE IS SHORT, so why not enjoy it and live everyday like I want to (while being within my means).
I’m in the in between stage. It’s an idea that is both exciting and terrifying. I’ve got a bit more thinking to do I think…
