I travelled less this year than last, and I travelled less than I’d originally planned, for a lot of reasons, but largely because I wanted to spend some time at home.
However, I did still fit in some trips, mainly for business, although a couple to see people as well. Here are some of the stand-out points from my 2016 travels.
It can be weird, as a blogger, to do… well, anything. It’s easy to think that you have to be 100% ‘on’ all the time, so you can remember not to miss anything you might want to write about later.
And trust me, this is even the case if you have a reeeaalllyy tiny reader base *waves at readers*
Switzerland, I am in you until the end of the week.
And I’m excited.
This year, slow travel wins the race. Or is just better for not getting exhausted *during* the race. Or something.
Monday was my final day in Barcelona. Really I should say my final day for now, since I plan to go back. I worked from my friend’s living room in the morning, then when she came home from her course we went for a drink at a focaccia place just up the road, then I got on the metro and headed to the airport.
When I’d originally looked at tickets there from London, they’d been £30 direct each way, but by the time I actually got around to going it was summer holiday time, which meant the cheapest I could get was about £160 in total, and that included a nine-hour nighttime layover in Geneva airport.
