What 2016 has in store for me

 In Lifestyle, Travel

This year is shaping up to be a fantastic year for me and probably one of my most adventurous years to date. Here are just some of the things that I have on the cards for 2016.

1. Off to Berlin in just over 2 weeks time

I have never been to Berlin before and this is one of the cities that I have wanted to visit for quite some time. There’s just something quite appealing about Germany in general, having visited Munich two years ago for the Oktoberfest. I just loved the style of the country and the architecture is really something else.

Even though I don’t speak a word of German, I was one of those kids who did French at school (not that I can speak much of that anymore), I loved my previous visit and cannot wait to return.

2. Amsterdam in April

Yet another trip abroad, two in under a month is completely unheard of for me as I am not the most comfortable of flyers, but I really cannot wait for this.

I have been to Amsterdam before, but it’s such a stunning city with a really unique layout that I needed to go back at some point in order to see more of it.

Whilst there we are planning to head along to the Ajax v Utrecht match. I’ve been to the Amsterdam arena before and it was an experience the first time, so I can’t imagine how incredible it will be going to a match there.

3. Glasgow in May

Not such a long distance trip, but still a nice change of scenery. I love visiting Glasgow, there’s just such a great vibe about the place that draws me back all the time. Shopping is fantastic and the eating is just as good.

We’ve yet to book a place to stay, but I more than likely reckon it will be the Citizen M unless something equally as nice pops up on my radar.

 

4. London in June

I LOVE London! I would gladly move there if I could, but the cost of living down there just puts me off a little bit. Last year we managed to make the trip down to London twice, both times for the Foo Fighters concerts, but the first one was canceled.

London is just one of those cities that I feel so at home in, yet I know that if you lived there you would never tire of things to do or have one of those all too familiar weekends where you just have no idea of what to do.

What makes it even better this time, is that we are going to see Beyonce. Obviously for the girlfriend though…….shifty eyes.

5. LA in September

This is an incredibly big deal for me. I’ve mentioned before that I’m not the greatest of flyers,Β which has kind of constricted my previous holiday choices to Europe even though I have had a desire to visit America pretty much all of my life.

Los Angeles just seemed like one of those places where it’s got everything. Sun, Sand and Style.

For this trip we have booked into The Line hotel in Koreatown. It won me over immediately after seeing the pictures of both the interior and the views from the bedrooms. I just had to stay there.

This for me, has got to be the main highlight of my year and I’m literally counting down the days until it’s time to go.

How many of you have ever been to these places? What’s in your diary for 2016? I’d love to hear what you’ve got planned.Β

    I’ve been to London quite a bit, but have yet to visit the other places. I’d definitely love to visit Berlin though.

    I once made a trip to Paris to see Robbie Williams and the gig was cancelled at the last minute. Still, Paris was good πŸ™‚

      London is so good. I could spend forever down there. That’s the second gig we’ve tried to go to in London only for it to be cancelled. First one was Michael Jackson and we had the most amazing seats ever. I guess it gave us more time to explore the city than we would have originally had.

      Paris is definitely on my list of must-visit cities. I’ve never been to anywhere in France, so it’s a country I’d love to mark off my list, Italy is in there too.

    I am so jealous of all these trips, especially America. My life goal is to go to New York when I get the chance! Great post πŸ™‚ Look forward to your posts on the trips

      This is definitely my most adventurous year to date. Not going to be a cheap one though. Haha.
      Thanks, I’ll be sure to get as many pictures as I can for all.

    Busy year you’re going to have! I’ve been to Amsterdam and LA. Both are nice. I was in Amsterdam for only two days, so I didn’t exactly get a full experience. I was 15 at the time, and my mind was blown when we explored the Red Light District. The few times I’ve gone down to LA were fun, but it is far too hot for me in So Cal. I unfortunately have no travel plans this year, but I’m hoping to pop over to Europe again next summer to celebrate graduating college. You’ll be a practiced airman after all this traveling!

      I really enjoyed it. Gutted that we didn’t get to see too much of the city as it was for a stag weekend, but would love to go back.

    Wow, sounds great. You definitely have something to look forward to making the time in between these trips pass by quickly. I am a “Berliner” so I am looking forward to what you have to say about my hometown. πŸ˜‰ But I am sure you’ll love it. The same goes for London of course. I have been several times to the west coast. I always enjoy L.A. The weather is always great. Though, as much as I love L.A., San Francisco is to die for. I simply adore this city. So if you get the chance make sure to stop by SanFran as well.

      Berlin was great. My post about the weekend is up on the blog now if you wanted to check it out. I really cannot wait for LA but not sure we will have the time to visit San Francisco as it would mean hopping on a plane and probably staying overnight.
