With Jack having started back at school and Steve having started work at the same school, holidaying this year doesn’t seem very likely – no matter how much we want it to be. Having Jack in the school meant only using school holidays – or taking the fine!! – but with Steve there now as well, school holidays are the only option.
We are lucky enough to know that we are going to have a little bit of spare money soon to be able to go on holiday and I can’t wait for the time to go away to arrive, even if it is going to be in 2019. But we do have a few places we are hoping to visit during 2019 – one or two for actual holidays and a few for mini breaks. So what’s on my 2019 travel bucket list?
Jack has seen the adverts constantly on TV and knows that a few of his friends have gone recently so really wants to go and see what Butlins has to offer. My friend works for their parent company and says that he will absolutely adore it so we really want to get him there at some point next year.
I must admit that Fuerteventura wasn’t a place I’d always considered until I saw some friends and family go there this year. It seems like the perfect place for families with so many activities to do, plenty of gorgeous beaches and lots of sunshine! We really hope to travel abroad so this may just be the location we choose.
Of course, this is the other option that always features on our lists. Steve’s sister lives there and his brother may be moving back out there so this will always be on our travel bucket list – one day we will get there, hopefully 2019 will be that year.
I’d love a mini break in the Lake District – I was meant to be heading there this summer but plans seemed to fall through which was a shame. Luckily they did though as Steve had to start his new job when we would have actually been away. I may not have managed to visit the Lake District in 2018 but hopefully 2019 will be the year I get my mini break.
This is the dream holiday – hopefully we will get there one year. It is the one place Steve and I have both always wanted to go to – to see the Northern Lights, to see the geysers. It just seems like a beautiful country and if we can manage it next year, I’d love to go.
Finally – and probably the most unlikely – we’d love to visit Canada. Steve’s grandfather was Canadian and his ‘auntie’ lives out there so we’d love to go and explore the country ourselves and see where his family came from plus visit the people we know whilst we are out there. It would cost a pretty sum but if we could manage it, it would definitely be way up on the list.
Here’s my 2019 travel bucket list; I am aware I probably won’t manage all but even if I manage a couple, I’ll be a happy girl. Where do you want to head to in 2019?
