My Travel Wish List for 2014

My Travel Wish List for 2014

Wow 2013 has flown by and I am sure 2014 will be no different. Looking back at all the places I went to last year, It’s been a good year. I started the year in Amsterdam, went to see the ruins in Pompeii, got washed off the beaches in Spanish Basque country, toured AndalucĂ­a, Eurostarred it to Lille, climbed Ben Nevis in Scotland, explored Hong Kong and China, visited friends in Berlin and finished the year eating Christmas dinner with my family back home in Holland. Not bad, if I say so myself. But a new year calls for New Year’s resolutions and since mine always seem to be travel related, I thought to join in with Emma from Adventures of a London Kiwi and Kelly from 80 Pairs of Shoes and create a travel wish-list for 2014. So here goes:

Newcastle in Feb
Not the most exotic of places, you might think, but I will be attending a bloggers conference here organised by Travelmassive. I’ve never been to Newcastle, so I’m very curious to explore a bit of this Geordie city. And time permitting, perhaps take in a chunk of Hadrian’s Wall while I’m up there.

Seoul in March
I've heard it is very much like Japan, and since I loooooved visiting Tokyo, I can’t wait to explore this quirky Asian metropolis.

Europe or Britain some time this year
This one is still up in the air, but since I’m a newby at Trafalgar Tours, I will be going on a famil to somewhere in Europe. Watch this space.

Lake District April or May
Having climbed Snowdon in 2012 and Ben Nevis in 2013, 2014 I shall be climbing Scafell Pike. It should be a piece of cake given that it is the lowest of the UK’s three peaks, but let’s see.

Hudson Valley in December
I love the Hudson Valley, especially when taking a train from Albany to NYC. But this year I would like to go for a different reason all together. I’d like to attend the St Nicolas celebrations in Rhinebeck, New York. Dutch colonists left many traces in the Hudson Valley and these St Nicolas celebrations are an example of that. I’d really like to see how this traditionally Dutch holiday is celebrated across the pond.

Kerala in August
This will be a trip of firsts: My first time to India and my first press trip as a travel blogger.

I’m sure this list will look a lot different when I look back at 2014 on the 31st of December, but wherever I will end up going, 2014 will be a fabulous travel year. Just like 2013.
