Dreaming of Winter Sun 

This week I have been lucky enough to have a week of university so you would think that I have been doing fantastic days out maybe even taken a trip on a plane to somewhere warm. No instead I have been cooped up in the library trying to get ahead on assignments to take a little bit of a break for Christmas to enjoy it with friends and family and not be as stressed out as usual. I hopefully will be able to study a little bit less when Joe comes home next week you have him to thank for the amazing picture in this post. I am not jealous at all he got to meet penguins. My parents have also just returned from a week away in Lanzarote, and they have come back so suntanned I look like I don’t belong in their family. It’s hard to believe as a child who travelled abroad so much every single year I was lucky to be jetting off to a warmer climate it had been 7 years I think now since I left the UK.

This is something for sure I want to change next year I would love to be able to take Jess on her first holiday abroad and feel some of the  Sun on our backs. I am sure she would enjoy the pools because she really does seem to be such a water baby.  That reminds me we should take her swimming a lot more when Daddy is back, so she gets used to it again. Recently as my stress levels have risen and the temperature has plummeted, I have found myself dreaming of warmer climates. It is so tempting to take a week of uni and just go let’s forget I don’t have a valid passport at the moment.

The best thing about being able to go on holiday is that I could have so much fun in the pool with Jess and actually spend some quality time with her something I feel like I haven’t done since September.  I might actually be able to read something which is not academic and do it for pleasure I think I have around 200 books to read and I plan on moving house hopefully next year, and that’s going to be a lot of transporting.

Places such as Tenerife, Lanzarote are places which I would love to visit. I have been to Tenerife multiple times as a child and had so much fun over there. Visiting places such as Loro park and Siam park is something which I would love to do as it is something I haven’t done in the past. I think I would be tempted to only travel a maximum of around 4 hours at the moment on a plane because it is a whole new venture for Jess.

I can keep dreaming about the winter sun because currently, I have no time to pack my bags and jet off. Fortunately, I do have a weekend away break coming up in around a month, and it will be amazing to escape everyday life for a few days.

Many 2018 will be the year I get a new passport and one for Jess and explore the world again. For now, I am going to stay focusing on my studies and exploring places a little bit closer to home.
Have you got any winter sun breaks planned if so where? Or are you super organised and already booked your summer getaway for next year?

Top 5 Future Holiday Destinations

Hey Guys
January is the month when people start planning where they are going to go on their summer holidays this year. I will not be going abroad this year due to the fact that I have Jess and it will be really hard but I think I am going to have a couple of weeks away in the UK with family. These are places I have dreamed about going to before Jess was born,

Sydney
I would love to visit this beautiful part of Australia they looks so much which you can do in the city as well as going to the beautiful beaches which are not that far away this is somewhere where I would love to move to maybe in the future this is something which could happen. I need to start saving so I can afford to do this one day because I know its not going to be cheap.
New York

This just looks beautiful from all the vlogs which I have watched and also the pictures which I have seen on peoples blogs. I think I would love the mix of the shopping which can be done as well as the touristy things such as central park. I always think I would love to go to New York when it is cold so maybe next winter this is a place which I will be visiting. 
California
I blame my boyfriend for this because he went with work last summer for 2/3 months and would send me pictures. It looked like you see it in the movies so clean and sunny. I am sure if I beg him enough he would go back and take me this time so that I can see some of the sites he did because when he was off I know he had an amazing time there. 
Venice

I love the idea of visiting a place which to get around you have to travel on a boat it seems so romantic and something which could be so much fun. I would love to try the ice cream, pizza and pasta because I have heard that is so much better out there compared to what we get in the UK. I think I might have to go and investigate this claim. 
South Coast England

This may seem random to you because some of you may live there. However this is a place in the UK which I never have really been to and some of the views look amazing as well as things which you can do. I blame youtubers who are based or visit these areas for me wanting to visit, Maybe this is the one which I will be able to do at some stage this year. 
Where would you like to visit?
