Hello everyone! I am writing this as I recover from my 2(3?) day hangover, how is that even possible? My head is actually still hurting a little. Let’s pretend I’m coming down with a cold or something. Its 2015 and I’m clearly not getting any younger. A 3 day hangover could be my first thing of the year.
I’ve been digging through my year’s worth of posts and look at what a year it has been! My highlights have been Barcelona > Switzerland > Lisbon > Brussels > Tomorrowland > Traveling alone around the US > Paris.
I’d also like to give a massive thank you to Zomato for one of my main highlights as well, reviewing food has always been something I’ve wanted to do and they’re giving me that platform.
Despite some minor lows, this year has been full of highs! This year went by so quickly it almost feels like a bit of a blur. l’ve had to look back at my posts to remind myself of what I’ve done. What I love as well are my personal memories (ones that aren’t written about) related to each week. It’s like a little puzzle patching up the posts, patterns and memories. It simply doesn’t feel like just one year. It’s crazy and I’m so grateful for all of it. I saw this quote today and I loved it.
I thought I’d share it because this is one year where I really feet I took ownership of what I wanted to do rather than just moaning (but not to worry, I still complain sometimes haha). I encourage others to do the same, if there is something you don’t like then the choice to change it is yours.
To experience all of this, I’ve worked hard and done a lot of saving. Thinking ahead I decided to be wise and move back home for a little while to allow more of this to happen and to save up for a deposit to buy a house eventually. I’ve been reflecting a bit for this coming year and although I don’t have a set plan yet, my aim is to of course travel more, explore more food in London and continue to collect new experiences, whatever that may be.
Places on my hitlist this year are Iceland, Rome, Santorini, Bali and Dubai quite possibly. Who knows where this year will take me, as they say “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list”. Order doesn’t matter as long as I’m getting there.
2014 has made a mark and set the bar extremely high. I’m ready to top this one up but first I need to sit down and make a real action plan. Thanks to everyone who has followed, inspired and encouraged me this year. I will be taking a 2 week break from my bucket list to sort out my moving situation and regain my energy for the year. Currently I feel like I’m running on no fuel. This gives me 2 good weeks to think about what to do next. Please give me ideas if you have any! Happy new year everybody.
A worthy mention is MyNuttyDubai who will be taking on a 52 week project, follow her here and why not try it yourself?
Good luck! x
Happy new year. Hope 2015 brings plenty of joy and success. I like your quote, life doesn’t have a remote, we have to take control of our own show. Xx
Thank you! :) Happy new year to you as well, hope to see you soon xx
