What an absolutely ridonkulous year of travel I have had!
Over the past twelve months I have travelled to 7 continents across 24 countries – all the while maintaining a full time job as a Darwin baby catcher!
It has been busy, at times stressful, eventful, bank account emptying and truly amazing in so many ways.
It will be a tough year to beat, but you better believe that that won’t stop me from trying!
I have almost five months of consecutive leave booked for the latter part of 2018, and I have finally decided where I want to visit during this time.
Greenland is calling out to me yet again, so I plan to visit this icy wilderness for the third time! The difference will be that this time I plan to visit during summer, so will be able to explore a whole bunch of different regions and settlements.
I then plan to spend a big chunk of time exploring some African gems.
Starting in Cape Verde, I will then proceed from West Africa (Sierra Leone and Togo) south towards Cape Town (via DR Congo and Namibia) before heading north towards Ethiopia, making stops in Zambia and Kenya along the way.
Finally, as I start to head back home towards Australia, I will make stops in the UAE, Oman and the island of Socotra in Yemen!
It is certainly an ambitious plan, and hopefully it all comes to fruition in the upcoming year.
So, to all my truly wonderful and supportive readers, thank you for following me through an enormous 2017. I hope you have enjoyed travelling with me this year, and I really hope you will continue to do so in the upcoming months. There are no words to describe how much I appreciate your readership, your comments and your support, so once again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! I love you guys.
