HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!
It feels like it was just the beginning of 2017 wooow! Time flies…
2017 was a great travel year to me & am really hoping 2018 has some great stuff to offer me as well!
This is what I know so far:
This weekend we are going to Riga, Latvia for a weekend.
That’s gonna be awesome. Riga is one of my fave places and am always happy to go back!
Been there multiple times.. must be over 20 times since 2011. Home-away-from-home place for sure.
Jani has one extra day off so we have a chance to go there!
We gonna take the overnight ferry, drive from Tallinn to Riga and if we get there in time, also go to Dinamo Riga’s game. We are hockey fans and been to Dinamo games before, love the athmosphere at Arena Riga!
A trip to Riga, cant think of a better way to start a New Year!
But hey, there is more!
I got accepted to Matka: Nordic Travel Fair as a blogger and I couldnt be more excited!
Little bit nervous too of course because it’s my first time ever as a blogger.
Luckily we have a group on Facebook for Finn-bloggers and found couple of newbies there as well & we’ve already been connecting with them!
I’ve been to Matka couple of times before, two years ago with my school & last year with my intern-place, travel agency Traveller.
This year they also asked if I’d be interested to work for them on Saturday (maybe on Friday too) at Matka, hell yeah!! It’s always fun with them! So it seems am gonna be busy on that weekend!
(Pssst I also got two extra ticket & gonna have a raffle for those! Keep reading! 😉 )
On February we are probably going to Spain.
Jani’s parents have booked an apartment for few weeks & asked us to go too.
I’ve never been to Spain, not my top choice (missing back to Serbia so bad) but who knows I might like it there 😀
And there’s a bonus, if we stay at their rental home we can save some money- to another trip of course 😀
Plus am curious for new places. Am going with open mind of course – so Spain surprise me, por favor!
On March, I am going to Rome, Italy with my mom and my godchild.
My another goddaughter Minttu is going to study/work there for two months and we are going to visit her.
Already booked our flights- never been to Italy either so that’s gonna be another adventure for sure.
It sucks that Jani cant go, he has to work but am still excited because I realized I havent been on any vacation with my mom (Musti) since I was a teenager so that’s awesome.
But I hate flying! Well ate isnt really the right word for that since I love travelling, am happy to go almost anywhere but I dont feel comfortable at airplanes.. and now it seems I have to do it twice (or actually 5 times) so yippee..
Hmm.. what else?!
Oh we got the ”new” car, that was just before X-mas & decided it’s our X-mas present & I love it!!
On my previous post I mentioned X3 we almost got.
But after our summer road trip we were thinking to keep that ”old” car, but then we got pretty nice offer & before I even realized we were on our way to Hämeenlinna to pick up our new travel companion- X3 with
automatic transmission! I love to drive it though it’s way bigger than our 120! It feels like a luxus car!!
Well let me tell you after this weekend what kind of roadtripper is that 🙂
And there is more!!
I also purchased new phone. Before you start hating me and thinking did she win in a lottery, no I didnt.
Am still struggling with my extra work and I pay 20€ a month for that phone.
Plus this is actually my 2nd brand new phone. You heard me right- 2 nd !
First one was Nokia n82 years ago and other phones I have had (during 18 years) have been used phones.
I dont need to have the it-thing, so I was happy with pre-owned phones, mostly Jani’s.
This year they didnt need new ones and I had some memory issues with my old phone, so after hard thinking & hesitating for few weeks we went to phoneshopping yesterday and I came home with new iphone7!
Let me tell you after few weeks / months if it is that good as they promised!!
Cant wait to test it too!!
So those were my 2018 news / plans so far!!
And nope, did no promises.
Or should I say I promise not to make those silly promises anymore (am gonna lose weight, eat better, do this and that).. since they just get stuck to your head and it’s making things 100 x harder!
At least for me, constantly thinking of food that I cant eat etc. so no thx!
I will get back to my low-carbs for sure, but that’s not really a real diet, it’s more a lifestyle..
It’s really working but its is just frigging hard to start after X-mas & food parties….
Got to challenge yourself.
In the (of May) I can hopefully say it was worth to.. Now it feels like a boothcamp huh! 😛
Now I got to rush- Riga is calling me!!
Hope you guys had a great New Year’s Eve and hope you all will achieve your goals ’n dreams!
Lemme know about your possible promises / news / plans / dreams for 2018!
And as I mentioned:
I got two extra tickets to Matka / Travel Fair.
