2018 Itinerary

2018 Itinerary

2017 has flown by in a blur and we have had some amazing adventures and seen some awesome places. As we both work full time we like to spread our trips out throughout the year to ensure that we always have something to work towards and look forward to. 2018 is already shaping up to be a good year with plenty of trips booked and more in the pipeline. As my annual leave runs from the beginning of April to the end of March I have had to be conservative with my days when planning our 2018 travel itinerary as we have a big trip planned to the Caribbean and Central America in January 2019 (but more about that nearer the time). Therefore, 2018 will see us utilising as many weekends and bank holidays as possible. It will also see us explore at least 5 new countries and return to some of our favourites too.

We still have a few days left over for last minute breaks and press trips (if we are invited on any of course!) so our list is subject to change if opportunities arise and I will update throughout the year. Therefore, here’s our 2018 Itinerary, so far…..


  • Basel, Switzerland – 1 day
  • North Yorkshire, England – 1 day
  • Lake District, England – 1 day
  • Gdansk, Poland – 4 days


  • Manchester, England – 2 days
  • Vilnius, Lithuania – 4 days (Cancelled due to personal reasons)


  • London, England – 2 days
  • Gouda, The Netherlands – 2 days


  • Hull, England – 2 days
  • Harrogate, England – 3 days


  • Turin, Italy – 4 days
  • Edinburgh, Scotland – 3 days


  • Oslo, Norway – 4 days
  • Manchester, England – 2 days


  • Montenegro – 11 days
  • Dubrovnik, Croatia  – 2 days
  • Tirana, Albania – 1 day


  • Home for the summer!


  • Boston & Martha’s Vineyard, USA – 7 days (Flights were cancelled – boo!)
  • Munich, Germany & Salzburg, Austria – 7 days


  • Genoa, Portofino & Cinque Terre, Italy – 5 days


  • The Lake District, England – 4 days


  • Amsterdam, The Netherlands – 1 day
  • Leuven, Belgium – 2 days
  • Lisbon, Portugal – 2 days

    You are so good planning everything out so far in advance! What about a weekend in Norwich?! We have a guest bedroom……
    I have a few ideas but only thing booked is Scotland for a wedding in January.

    Your itinerary for next year looks amazing! I’m so jealous of your trip to Oman and UAE – I really want to visit Oman!
    Have you been to Dubrovnik/Montenegro before? We visited last year and it was amazing! I have a few posts from Dubrovnik and Kotor on my blog if you want to check them out 🙂 http://aprileveryday.com/category/destinations/europe/croatia/

      Hi April, thanks so much for your comment and I have added your blog to our reading list for Dubrovnik and Montenegro. We haven’t been before so we are really looking forward to it. It looks like we are going to have to knock Oman and UAE on the head (boooo!) I (Vicky) have run out of annual leave already for the year! 🙂

    What a great list! I am really quite envious! Our travels these days are heavily curtailed by lack of funds and being a carer for my 92-year old dad. Enjoy it while you can! ♥
    We only have one trip actually booked so far for 2018 (Oman in February), but a couple of plans (São Tomé and Príncipe in May and yet another safari in Tanzania in October/November) yet to be confirmed.
    Happy New Year to you both.
