Hello my beautiful BBz,
2016 was a fabulous year for me in terms of travel. I made sure to any accept any chance of going abroad whenever the offers arose. Some reasons I even made up myself, such as Girlie holidays, work jolly’s, birthday treats, un-birthday treats, the fact that it was April – you name it, I found an excuse to book a plane ticket (Albeit super cheap ones, which also means I am not the biggest Easy jet or Ryan air fan when it comes to service)
It’s so easy to find excuses to put off booking things, so I settled on a game plan where I would try to make my holidays stretch without interrupting work and conjoin them with weekends and bank holidays as often as I could so I could have optimal time away without too much professional impact. I know lots of us have jobs where things move so fast you don’t want to be taking a fortnight off and coming back to chaos, it’s situations like that which almost feel like the holiday isn’t worth it. I personally, also find it better to have things to look forward in the Months ahead so I keep hyper focused.
This year I managed to visit several destinations, but as I am having photo uploading issues (yes, still) I’ve popped a few Instagram snaps below to give you taste until I get the actual scenic shots on here.
Here I am walking into new adventures with my eyes shut as usual. Taken at a local service station on the German/France border. Me and the boy drive so much we have decided to start a blog that reviews them all. I am not even joking. We’ve started a paper list and everything.
We went over Christmas and it was one of the most magical experiences of my life. We got to live in a winter wonderland and drink mulled wine and eat meat with crackling constantly. It was the best. The Bavarian’s know how to live man. They really do. I’m rather partial to a pair of lederhosen now as well. Not stop, Oktoberfest. It’s gonna happen people.
In Rimes in France on Christmas Eve. It was a magical evening in the market. I’d literally just tripped over in excitement as I ran to that giant flower pot. What isn’t pictured is the crowd of french people laughing at me.
In Barcelona with the Squad for our birthdays. Such a fabulous City. Here we found love. Here we discovered the selfie stick.
Here I am in Rome. Just minding m own business pulling poses in a public street. What about it?
*not my best angle. I do actually have a chin.
Me with “Nigel”, who happened to be a giant penis chair in the “Sex museum” in Amsterdam. Safe to say I cropped the picture just in case any of you are at work but check out the full pic on my Instagram. I didn’t learn much but I saw a lot of porn which for a Museum is pretty damn fabulous. Great day out for all ages.
These pictures are from my Instagram my handle being @bunnypuddin if you want to be a good fellow and socially follow me.
I managed to pick up some great travel tips so I will make sure to list them in separate posts for each destination. I am blessed with a partner in crime who loves to feel like a local when he travels so we use public transport and drive when we can, to get the most out of our travel experiences and save money doing it…Which is great for us as we need to fund our vino consumption.
I haven’t got a hit list yet this year but I am really considering Asia as the Boy hasn’t been there yet and my ultimate dream, to see the Northern lights. If anyone knows of any fabulous sites where I can get some deals I would be most thankful. Also, where are you lot hopping off to? Let me know below as I’d love to get inspired and go somewhere completely unexpected.
