So last year was certainly the year I went a bit crazy with getaways – but each experience has a number of memories I’ll hold onto for a lifetime. I’ve written specifically about how to afford going away every other month as I did in 2016 (click here to read) but below are 13 reasons/ways which lead me to going away on 13 trips in 2017 and where I went:
In celebration of international women’s day and pretty much every day, I feel so privileged to be surrounded by, be friends with, and know of women doing remarkably well in their line of work, are inspiring, hard working, and someone I’m genuinely glad to know, and who you should get to know about! :
Life gets busy, but making time for those we consider close friends and family, is important! Here are a few of my favourite things to do with friends I love:
Happy new year!
Now I’m planning to be completely impartial and non bias – I think this is possible especially being a journalist.

- To never forget about me, too!
- That I am human, and I can make mistakes.
A busy, fun and relaxing week well spent in the heart of the sizzling and very Spanish city turned out to be a week certainly learned!
Probably the worst bites I’ve encountered – those mosquitos were unruly! Thighs, wrists, legs, arms, FACE – woah.
Negative headlines, terrorism, death – it’s too much. Life is too much sometimes.
How do I have better understanding it?
How do I encourage others who have also dealt with bad news?
A strong-distance friendship is a term I didn’t coin, but randomly said to one of my close friends, Marija, who lives in Switzerland. I think whether you live far away from or in a different country to one of your friends or not, there will always be distance in our friendships:
- Hectic schedules
…all seem to be the factors that widen the physical distance between my friends and I. However, that doesn’t in any way affect the friendship.
1. Eat good! It makes you feel good. I made a food list and researched into restaurants I’m going to be eating at this summer in London. It’s great to see so many of them ticked off my list.
