My Travel Goals For 2020

I may sound a little premature talking about goals when there’s still well over a month of 2019 left, but I felt like sharing them. Sod it, it’s almost Christmas! Not that has anything to do with it *shrugs shoulders*



I’ve sort of found my rhythm with travelling in 2019, and I want that rhythm to continue in 2020. I visited Liverpool (obvs) twice, Brighton and Birmingham. All lovely cities, but all visited for different reasons.



I’ve grown a real likeness towards travelling solo these days. I love the thought of not having to follow anyone else’s routine and I can just go about things in my own time and way.



I’ve grown to love exploring new places, even if it’s in the UK. I love the anticipation of getting on the train knowing it’s going to take me to my destination (delays and cancellations permitting) . I adore walking into a hotel room and sleeping on a bed with crisp sheets and knowing I can have a (in Uncle Bryn’s voice) ‘power shower’ (I haven’t got a working shower at home, so I bath it all of the time)



I want to make people see that the UK does have a lot to offer as well as going abroad. Cause there is a lot to see, I promise you.



Ok, rather than me wittering on, here are the places that are on my travel hit list for 2020 -





COTSWOLDS
I've seen quite a few blogger's go to the Cotswolds and it's such a beautiful and picturesque place. I'd love to visit the heart of the Cotswolds, after all it's an AONB (area of natural beauty) and explore as it seems like a peaceful and tranquil place. I've been looking at staying in an Airbnb on my visit there hopefully around April time. It would make a nice change to stay in an Airbnb rather than a hotel.




BATH
Not far from the Cotswolds is the city (is it a city?) of Bath. Another place that has been on my travel wanderlust list for a while. I'm hoping to go to Bath Christmas Market in the next week or so, so I shall get a little taste of what Bath has to offer. I would love to make a trip to the Roman Baths, if you have been to Bath before, please let me know if it's worth the visit or not! Bath is such an Instagrammable place, definitely a place where I can take enough photo's for good supply of Insta content. Bath is on my travel rota for me to visit about May/June time.
 
 
LIVERPOOL
It wouldn't be a perfect travel plan without a visit to Liverpool now would it? Well, for me it wouldn't anyway. I've already booked a trip to my happy place for the end of March which I'm already bouncing about! I'm hoping to visit Liverpool again next Summer, possibly a little earlier. I love going up in August, but it's nice walking round Liverpool during quieter periods aka not in the Summer Holidays. I'm hoping to go back in July and possibly make a trip up in December next year too. Three visits in one year - I've done it before, I can do it again!
 
 
SOUTHAMPTON
Now, I made a quick trip to this place twice on a detour to and from Brighton. Well, let's be more specific, I only ventured in the train station waiting area (which was like an oven). I can't even give you a proper reason why I want to visit - it just seems appealing! I think walking along the front and breathing in the sea air sounds amazing - plus the sea air is good for my lungs. Kill two birds and that. I'm planning a visit around August time, it seems the best time for me to go.
 
 
TENBY
This is a place I'm still thinking about. Purely because I'm trying to find somewhere I'd like to stay. I'd like to stay near Tenby harbour, purely so I can sit on the beach (weather permitting) with a good book and just chill. If anyone has been to Tenby and can recommend a place to stay, give me a heads up yeah?! I plan to visit either in June or August. It's quite an easy place to get to, well, being and living in Wales, it should be!
 
 
What's on your travel hit list for 2020? Let me know!

  1. I went to visit the Roman Baths in school and they're definitely a must-see in my opinion! The city itself is absolutely breath taking and I really enjoyed my time there. Hopefully I'll be able to head back soon to take it all in again! You've got some great travel plans hashed out, it's great to see more people interesting in exploring the UK. xx

  4. The Cotswolds is one of my favourite places in the UK, it’s just so picturesque.

    Tenby is beautiful we were there this summer but we camped just outside. Always go for luxury x

  5. This is so exciting to read. Everyone always talks about exploring outside of the UK but I agree that there's so much to offer here as well. I would love to be able to explore more of the UK more, especially the northern parts. Would love to do a week away in Yorkshire and see the peak district! Northern Ireland is defo on the list as well - looks so beautiful there! However, being a student, it's all just a dream inside my head at the moment!

    1. The Peak District sounds so lovely and I know a few people who have visited and said that they've loved it! I would love to visit Belfast! x

  6. Although I lived in the UK for two years and got to travel around a lot, I never made it to the Cotswolds or Liverpool! My work allows me to take a few months (or as long as I want really) off at a time, so next year I hope to do my dive master training in Honduras and come back to Europe, including the UK! Best of luck x
