2017 was a wonderful year of travels. I covered 17 destinations, in France, in Europe and across the Atlantic ocean. But after ringing the New Year yesterday, it is time now to look at the 2018 travel plans. Where should I go this year?
I have a few destinations on my bucket list. Some more firm than others. I want to keep exploring my own backyard and see more of France. Which I already started since I’m writing this article from the Languedoc region where I’m exploring the Cathare country… more on that later, I promise.
But most of all, I want to cover some miles… And here’s what’s on my agenda for the next 12 months.
Ireland (May 5-14)
It is the first trip organised with The Vagabond Monkey flag. John and I are taking six people on an incredible photography road-trip across the south of Ireland. There are still a few open spots, so if you want to join us on this adventure, it’s time to let us know!
Washington State (July)
I already have my ticket for the 2018 edition of WDS, and I can’t wait to see all my friends in Portland, OR late June. This year, I decided to road trip north after the event and visit the beautiful state of Washington.
British Columbia, Canada (July)
My road-trip travel plans should take me all the way to Vancouver through even more gorgeous sceneries of the Canadian British Columbia. I can tell you that my heart rate is already going up when I think about this trip…
Lisboa, Portugal (Fall)
I have heard so much wonderful things about Lisbon that it has been on my list for quite a while. But when my friends Jedd & Michele from Intentional Travelers spent a month there this winter and kept raving about it on Instagram, my decision was made. I had to experience the Lisboa-life before it becomes the new Barcelona.
This one is very high up The Vagabond Monkey list. It has, actually, been on my bucket list for quite some time. After much thinking, we decided that winter was the best season to tackle one of the most gorgeous sight in the world. So, winter 2018, hopefully, Iceland, here we come.
When I did my 2018 overall plan, one of my objective in the Travel category was to visit 5 countries, including 3 new countries if possible… This should almost do the trick. There might be some adjustments to make here and there but my objective would be reached. If you want to tag along virtually, don’t hesitate to follow me on Instagram. And if you want to tag along IRL, become a Vagabond Monkey member and you’ll always be the first to know where we’re heading!
