Wanderlust Wishlist 2016 – January Travel Linkup

 
2015 saw me travelling far and wide, literally and emotionally. I spent the 14/15 New Year watching the fireworks over the Thames (and working on a party boat), spent a weekend in Brussels with my best friend, explored Cambridge, met new ‘family’ in Scotland, travelled to Portugal with work, saw where the Von Trapps lived in Salzburg, caught up with friends in Hanover, got lost in Berlin, made new friends in Vietnam and Cambodia and surprised family in Thailand! 
 
I also broke up with my boyfriend, quit my amazing job, packed up my life, moved back across a (couple of) oceans, made it back in time to be part of my best friend’s wedding, saw my nieces for the first time and got to spend Christmas and New Years with family and friends for the first time in two years.

If I have it my way, 2016 will be just as big as it’s predecessor.
 
September will see me and a few friends soaking up the rays in LA, hunting alligators on the bayou, visiting a white house in Washington and a green lady in NY. Yup! We’re going to America! And squeezing it all in by doing a 26 day Contiki tour. 
We’ll be topping it off with a holiday from our holiday, relaxing on a beach in Hawaii.

Particularly, would LOVE to see the Northern Lights. And how could you not want to when you’ve spent to look on Instagram and come across photos like this?

St Petersburg

Ever since reading The Bronze Horseman, I’ve been a bit obsessed with visiting Russia.

The biggest travel move I’m going to make this year (hopefully) is transporting myself back to my second home – LONDON! 
 

 
 
 
This is my first blog at the Travel Linkup, but I have been following Emma for a while now and thought it would be good to add another resolution to my ever growing list: blogging more (and with some sort of purpose!) 
 
How to link up your post

“Just pop your post up over the first week of the month (the 1st – 7th January 2016), add it to the link up widget found on Emma’sAngie‘s, or Jessi‘s blogs from the 1st.

As ever there are no real rules – basically all we ask is that you check out some of the other cool bloggers that are involved in that months travel link up; tweet a few of the posts out to your followers that you think they will love and make a few comments here and there. It really is a great way to meet some new travel bloggers and share some blogging joy!” – Emma
