It’s all going on, it’s all going on. Travel plans are being made faster than I can keep up with them so I thought I’d write this, as much to keep me up to speed as anyone else.
Right upfront I’d like to ask for any tips from anyone who has been to, or done extensive dream-planning for, the following locations. Every little helps!
There’s a prize if you can guess the locations before you read below. Special prize if you can guess top or bottom left!
Early October: Croatia
This was our holiday that wasn’t, the fabled trip that fell to fate. Well, we finally got our backsides in gear (or the fates allowed it, whichever way you want to look at it) and have booked our stay at a resort on the coast near Zadar. We’re going for 4 days, at least 3 of which I plan to be sat on, near, or overlooking the beach with a book or two. For the remaining time, we’ve got a hire car so we may go exploring. Watch this space.
Early November: Paris
I was missing my beloved Helmut Newcake so it was time to plan a return journey. Eurostar had a sale, and voilà. A weekend in Paris. We’re leaving early doors Saturday and returning late Sunday, so it’ll be a quick jaunt but I still can’t wait. I plan to walk around a lot, eat lots of gluten free patisserie, and just, y’know, be in Paris.
Late November: Sydney
Of course I need little excuse to go and visit my sister, and as S will be going on a work trip out to this side of the world I thought I’d make my way out, too. Hilariously, it’s worked out that S and I will only spend about 5 days together when all is said and done, but that’s ok. I get 2 weeks with my sister, brother-in-law, and gorgeous niece and nephew, and I get to stay in their fancy new house. It’s got a pool. I know.
Side trip: Brisbane
S’s work trip is actually to Brisbane, so I’m going to pay him a whistlestop visit whilst I’m over. That works out to basically a day and a half in the city, but I’ve booked us a nice looking hotel near the Botanic Gardens so I’m hoping we’ll have lots of good stuff within easy reach. I’m especially keen for foodie recommendations for Brisbane, especially gluten free, so if you have any please do pass them along.
And that’ll about do for now. Time to start planning my packing lists!
Have you been to any of the places I’m heading off to? Do you ever dream-plan a holiday?
