Hello everyone, and happy new year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and are ready for an epic 2017! (I can’t believe we’re already 7 days into January… where did the holidays go?)
I’ve been thinking about how to start this year and what my first post of the year should be, and I thought – what better way to kick off the new year than by talking about my plans for 2017 and where I’ll be travelling in the next couple of months!
I don’t normally plan my holidays this far in advance, but things will be a bit different this year. At the risk of sounding cliché and very, very cheesy, 2017 will be THE year of change for me. After working in the same role for about 3 years, I’ve decided to take a short break from the 9 to 5 world for a little while (only for about two or three months), and enjoy a bit of time off abroad before looking for a new opportunity somewhere else, as well as finally moving into London and finding a new flat. And although I’m happy here in the UK (for now), I didn’t want to rush into another job before taking some time off and exploring what the world has to offer.
So, in almost exactly two months’ time, I’ll pack my bags and head off to Asia for a two-month adventure, before flying back to the UK and starting afresh. And although I haven’t planned my whole trip yet and the last week or two still need to be finalised, I thought I’d give you a heads up as to where I’ll be headed this year, and what places I’ll be writing about (mostly) on the blog!
