I read yesterday that the first Monday back to work after the Christmas and New Year break is the most depressing day of the year. To avoid falling into this negative outlook I think we should plan and look forward to what this year has to offer us.
I have two activities to do this year that I have never done before and I am really excited about them. Both were presents from my parents-
· A champagne hot air balloon ride, that they bought me for my 30th Birthday last year
· And a Segway experience that they bought me for Christmas this year
And of course I also have my first Glastonbury to look forward to.
I am also thinking forward to my year of travel. I’ve decided that this year will be more about European weekend getaways because there are so many cities in Europe that I have still not visited. Of all the places I have been I seem to have neglected my own continent. So a trip to France is already in the pipeline. We are planning to rent a house in the Vendee region for a week and drive down so that we can take a few days either side of the rental to explore some other areas. On high recommendation we are planning on a visit to a wonderful town called Chartres to see the "Lights of Chartres". Every year between April and September as night falls the town's monuments are illuminated in a spectacular light show.
I also want to take this opportunity to finally make it to Paris, somewhere I should have been to already but somehow haven’t yet.
As for the other European city breaks I’ve not decided definitely where to visit but I like the idea of trying to get to a few this year and high on my list are Riga, Kiev, Budapest, Dublin, Bratislava, Prague, and Istanbul. So I am spoilt for choice really.
