New Year, New Travel Lexx

I don’t really do resolutions. I have never smoked and only drink socially – so nothing I need to quit. I eat relatively healthily and don’t feel like I need to cut down on anything. I exercise up to 6 days a week – and yes, I will put my hands up, I am not that happy about newbies invading my gym (but it’s ok, they will be gone in about 5 weeks, never to be seen again).

Travel Lexx: 2015 in Review

So just like that, 2015 is over. Hopefully you have all had a fantastic break but now that 2016 has drifted around the corner, tyres screeching, we can all get back to the business of planning more awesome travels!

But before I embrace the new year completely, here is a quick look back at 2015:

January: I escaped the cold London weather and headed for the warm climes of Australia for a 2 week break in Melbourne and Sydney.

Torvehallerne: Eating Around Copenhagen’s Best Food Market

I love food. One of the reasons I love travelling is being able to sample some incredible dishes around the world, made from fresh ingredients and using recipes passed down through generations.

Food markets are also always high on my list of places to visit, as this is where you are likely to find in-the-know locals enjoying great food at reasonable prices (not hiked up for tourists).

Photos from Venice

Here are some more photos of Venice that didn’t make it into my Venice Vacation post the other day.

A Venice Vacation

The plane glided past snow-capped peaks and sleepy mountain villages as the thick clouds lingered below. The early morning sun lit up the Dolomite valleys and canyons and I made a mental note to try and spend some time in this beautiful mountainous region of Italy one day.

Upcoming Travel Shows

I’ve talked about my love for travel shows before and I am quite excited about the two shows that are coming up at the beginning of 2016.

Travel shows

First up, on the 23-24th January, is the Adventure Travel Show. Taking place at Olympia, London it will give visitors an opportunity to book their ideal adventure trip and a chance to attend loads of talks and seminars.

A Copenhagen Christmas

I looked up at the sign again. I was on the right platform – at least I hoped I was. Boarding the wrong bus or train is part and parcel of travelling but I haven’t yet been faced with a train that could take me to the wrong country.

Latest Travel Plans

I tend to be quite spontaneous when it comes to travel but as I wrote on the blog a few weeks back, travel shows are a great opportunity to book some trips for the coming year at great prices.

Since booking those, however, I have managed to book another three trips for 2016 (I really don’t know how I am going to afford all of them!).

So You’ve Decided To Travel – Part 4

Part 4

Money Matters

You‘ve got the dates locked in, flights booked and even a couple of buddies lined up for your big trip. You’ve started planning all the awesome activities you’ll do and places you’ll visit. And this is precisely when you start realising that you may not have quite as much saved up for this as you originally thought.
