2019 travels

After completing the Take 12 Trips challenge in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 – with at least one trip each month, from a weekend break to overseas adventure – I’m carrying it on in 2019.

Coming up: My first trip of the year took me to the winter wonderland of Finnish Lapland, where we didn’t get to see the Northern Lights but did have husky and reindeer rides through stunning snowy scenery. Check out the rest of my travel plans for 2019.
