What you’ve been reading
Happy New Year to you all and thank you for joining me on my adventures by reading this blog and connecting with me on social media. 2014 was a great year of travel for me, I hope it was for you too! 🙂
Top 5 blog posts in 2014
The following are the most read posts on my blog in 2014. If you missed them, here’s a chance to catch up!
1. A Fairytale Christmas with Haggis Adventures!
This was my most popular post this year on the blog and one of my most recent ones about my hosted road trip through the Scottish Highlands with Haggis Adventures. I have lots more to share about that magical fairytale Christmas, coming up soon. Right now I’m full of so much #DeepScottishLove and I can’t wait to go back up to Scotland again to explore some more!
2. On the road with Wild Rover Tours to Northern Ireland
I last visited Ireland in July (my second visit), a mini adventure for my birthday and I joined Wild Rover Tours for the day with a friend, courtesy of the lovely manager at the fabulous Generator Dublin. I had a great day exploring Northern Ireland including West Belfast, learning more about the politics and seeing the beautiful countryside including the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Giant’s Causeway.
3. A New York First Date
This is a post from 2013 about my first visit to New York in June 2010. I’ve been back since, but I’ll never forget my first date! A post for those who love shopping, Sex and the City and exploring the Big Apple!
4. Spice up your life Angeethi style!
Angeethi Indian Kitchen and Lounge is a restaurant in Gateshead. I visited Angeethi in February following attending Traverse 14, a conference about travel blogging. Angeethi partnered with Newcastle Gateshead to offer a limited number of Traverse 14 conference delegates an Indian taste experience. I’ve never been the biggest fan of Indian cuisine, sure I love a korma but this taste experience really opened my taste buds – I encourage you to pay them a visit if you find yourself in Newcastle Gateshead.
5. Traverse 14 – the Tyne of your blogging life!
This post is about Traverse 14, the travel blogging conference I mentioned above. I highly recommend attending this is you’re interested in travel blogging, are based in the UK and work through the week because Traverse Events cater for part-time travellers like myself, who don’t want to use all our annual leave attending conferences. I’ve already got my ticket to Traverse 15!
Coming up in 2015
I’ve got lots more adventures to share and new adventures to discover. In a few days I’ll also be telling you about a campaign I’m involved in to protect #JustOneRhino.
Have a Happy New Year in 2015!
Thanks again for joining me in 2014 and I hope you’ll stick around and join me for more adventures in 2015! I don’t currently have any specific travel plans, I kind of like it that way sometimes because anything could happen, even though I need to work my travels around the day job, I still like to be flexible with my travel plans and leave room for unexpected adventures.
Do you have any travel plans for 2015? I’d love to know – tell me in the comments below 🙂
Finally I’ll leave you with this inspiration, one of my favourite travel quotes!
