Despite travelling from Inverness to London every week, I still haven’t lost that urge to travel. Currently I have four holidays planned, ok so one is a trip down to stay with my folks…but still it lifts my spirits no end having holidays on the horizon.
In September I have booked myself on a yoga retreat in Ibiza. I have had no end of teasing about me going to Ibiza…not about doing yoga, not about going on my own, instead it is the ‘making shapes on a dance floor, foam parties and getting drunk in the streets jokes’. I have never been to Ibiza before and to be honest didn’t think I ever would, as I also thought it was just all about drunken people and raves…are they still called raves? I am looking forward to going and have been trying to do a little yoga every day since I booked it…I don’t want to embarrass myself too much. I feel I am already walking straighter and feeling more energised.
In November I am visiting the Wirral to stay with my folks. I have been planning a reunion for a company I worked for in Liverpool for nearly 9 years. The venue is booked, deposit paid and 39 confirmed attendees so far. I will also catch up with my friends from the Wirral, so it should be a great week of reunions.
In December I am off to Bratislava for a long weekend with my best friend Helen. We will be taking in a visit to Vienna whilst we are there. We visited Budapest a few years ago and I expect the same sort of chilly temperatures so will be stuffing thermal vests and long johns in my hand luggage.
Finally in June 2016…yes I really have booked a holiday 11 months in advance…Helen and I are off to Michigan. In 1991-1992 Helen and I were both au pairs in Michigan and next year will be the 25th Anniversary!!! I looked after three girls (twin babies Molly and Trish and four year old Erin.). It will be the twins 25th birthday whilst we are there, so a double 25 year celebration!
No holidays planned with my husband yet, but likely we will rent a cottage in Italy near Florence at some point and maybe a mini break to Islay. I buy 10 extra days holiday a year, he doesn’t and then he spends 5 of his days on boys trips (usually to Scotland games). So that gives me 15 days a year to sneak in more trips than him 🙂
