The last few months have been a quiet one for me – as traveling took a backseat while I focused on writing. I started the year in Southeast Asia, before heading back to our base in Spain and hopping off on short trips around Europe. In the past month or so, I’d visited Portugal, Italy and Manchester but nowhere far-flung or adventurous.
The second half of the year promises to be packed with more action – here’s a look at where I’ll be over the next few weeks. I’ll be hanging around a bit more in Spain before jumping off to more exotic locales. If you’re in the neighborhood and interested in meeting up, give me a quick shout out!
13 April – 24 April: Asturias, Bilbao and San Sebastian – Spain
I’m setting off for Oviedo, Asturias today and I will be exploring the area as a guest of Asturias Tourism Board and turismo.as. I will be blogging about here after the trip, but you can follow the live video streaming on Turismo.as or follow our blogtrip site. From Asturias, I’ll be going on a road trip with friends to the most northern corners of Spain to explore more of the country.
3 May – 10 May: Costa Brava, Spain
As a guest of Costa Brava Tourism, I’ll be visiting the area around Girona – with many exciting activities on the itinerary including paragliding and a treehouse eco-lodge stay.
27 May – 5 June: Jordan Press Trip
I’m thrilled to be revisiting one of my favorite countries in the world, this time on a press trip thanks to the Jordan Tourism Board.
3 July – 31 July: Mauritius and Madagascar
Alberto and I are spending a whole month exploring the islands of Mauritius and Madagascar on our honeymoon! (Didn’t I tell you we’re getting married on 1st July?) I’m looking forward to both wildlife-watching in Madagascar and lounging by the turquoise beaches of Mauritius.
7 August – 15 August: Arctic Expedition
As one of Gap Adventure’s Wanderers in Residence, I’ll be going on my first trip with Gap onboard their Arctic expedition cruise. The Realm of Polar Bears trip promises to be an epic journey – cruising through ice-covered fjords, spotting whales and polar bears and encountering glaciers.
17 September – 26 September: Iceland
It’ll be a whirlwind trip through the country as we explore its fjords, volcanoes and hot springs with our best friend from Iceland. Any suggestion or tip welcomed as always!
