Best of 2017. Travel tips. What’s next.

10 countries, 12 flights, an adventurous 3000 km summer roadtrip, making new friends on the road, tasting delicious food, capturing on camera all the awesome experiences around Europe. 🙂 That’s the 2017 summary for us.

Then planning. And some more planning. What for? 😀 Well…we’ve got something BIG coming up next!

Remember, there are 52 weekends (52*2=104) and about 12 days of public holiday within a year. So adding up your (let’s say) 24 days of leave entitlement from work, you kinda’ have 140 free days a year!

Here’s a word of advice: don’t spend them on the sofa, there is so much to see and learn out there in the World! Just go. 🙂

Without any more introduction, here’s how we did it in 2017.

 

After we have left Italy out of our travel plans for years, in January we gave it a try. Rome and Vatican are just something to behold from just any angle or hight.

In March our HaiHui Story sets foot in Ireland.  Our short stay is enough to discover the top spots in Dublin you can visit for free, and make an escape to the secret side of the country, Howth Head.

In June we’re leaving for the most spectacular summer roadtrip so far: 15 days, 3000 km and 6 countries crossed. Tasting a little bit of Romania on the way out, and Bulgaria on the return route, we have the chance to discover Hungary, Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia. Just look at these beauties:

August is when we return to our loved water lands in Holland, Netherlands. If we were not sure how much we enjoy this country, now there is no doubt: I was Dutch for sure in a previous life. 🙂 The days spent here are all about fishing villages, cheese, tulip-fields, windmills and everything in between.

Diving into the democracy womb in Athens, flying over the Cyclades, chasing the Santorini sunsets, watching airplanes over the black sand beach of Kamari, this is our September in Greece.

November: even with a short business trip in Germany, there is time to see Dusseldorf getting ready for the Christmas holidays.

 

Happy new year, travel fellows! May it be the best so far!

    1. Yeah, 2017 was the best for us! 🙂 And when you add the weekends, and all the public holidays and your leave entitlement at work, it’s really cool to know you have like 140 free days per year!!! I did the math last year, to know on how much free time i can count on:))) I hope 2018 will exceed all expectations. I wish you the same, dears! Safe travels! And stay posted, you’ll find out soon what’s the next adventure. 🙂
