2017

Here we are again…

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know I hate the whole “New Year, new me” thing. I don’t make make resolutions really. I just know that I’ll last maximum a week on whatever fitness regime I decide to start in January so I just don’t bother now.

However having said that, I did make a pact with myself last year (top tip: calling it a pact means it isn’t a New Years Resolution and therefore you’re more likely to stick to it. It’s science really). This pact was to travel more in 2016, which I definitely did!

In 2016 I tookΒ more international and Irish trips than before. My Irish trips included a trip to Kerry with my cousins, my annual trip to the Galway races, and going to the Kinsale 7s in Cork. Internationally I have been to New York, London (three times!), Manchester, Budapest, Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Spain, Portugal, Chicago and Los Angeles. I travelled 9 out of 12 months, totalled 44,518km in the air over 66 hours, revisited countries that I love, visited new places, and had an incredible time!

My pact with myself for 2017 is to try to only go to new places this year. Many of the places I went to in 2016 were places I’ve been before. While I love these places and will visit them in the future, the world is such a big place and there’s still so much for me to explore and see. Obviously if I have to go somewhere for work that I’ve been before that won’t count, but I’m making a conscious effort to only book holidays and trips to new destinations.

Here’s to a year of new destinations!
