My 2018 Travel Bucket List

As 2017 was quite a boring year for me, I want to make sure 2018 is more exciting. I know everyone says this, but time did go so quickly! I had some ideas about what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go in 2017, but not many of my plans materialised. I don’t want the same thing to happen again, so I am going to write out a 2018 travel bucket list.

I always go abroad with my boyfriend once a year; that’s always the highlight of the year for me. However, this year we might just have a staycation in the UK and have days out instead. Afterall, there is so much to see and do in your own back garden. We can’t afford to go abroad AND have days out in the UK, so we’ll have to decide which one we’re doing to do.

What’s on your 2018 travel bucket list?


Close To Home (1)If I do go abroad, I can still have some nice days out locally that don’t involve travelling and hotel costs. I live in Norfolk, so anything in Norfolk and Suffolk is considered local to me. Here are just some of the places I would like to visit:

Rediscover The Suffolk Coastline

I used to always visit the small coastal towns and villages of Suffolk with my family, but I haven’t been for a long time now. Picture-perfect coastal destinations include: Southwold, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Dunwich, Sizewell and Walberswick.

Rediscover Suffolk’s Heaths & Nature Reserves

Again, visiting the heaths and nature reserves is something I used to do a lot with my family. There are some wonderful places to visit such as the Minsmere and Orford Ness nature reserves.

Discover The Norfolk Coastline

Norfolk has a great coastline as well, but I’ve only ever been to Great Yarmouth before. I would love to visit new places such as Cromer, Happisburgh and Sheringham.

Visit National Trust & English Heritage Sites

I love visiting historic castles and grand houses, so I would love to visit any National Trust and English Heritage sites. There are so many different places to choose from to make a memorable day out.

Visit Thetford Forest & The Norfolk Broads

I live so close to Thetford Forest and The Norfolk Broads, but I have never been before! These two places are definitely on my list of things to do in the summer.


Further Afield (5)Like I said at the start, I’m either going abroad, or having days out away from home. Here are just some of the places I would like to visit:

Attend The BBC Good Food Show At The Birmingham NEC

As I am a chef, this show is very interesting to me. There is live entertainment from celebrity chefs, and you get to go shopping and taste before you buy. I have been a couple of times before, but not for a long time.

Visit The Harry Potter Studio Tour

I have been a big fan of Harry Potter right from the start, so I would love to visit the Warner Bros. studio tour! It is quite far away from me, but it would definitely be worth the journey.

Visit National Trust & English Heritage Sites

I know I mentioned this above, but I would also love to visit places further afield as well. It would probably be worth becoming a member for a year, so we pay one fixed price and save money if we visit lots of different places.

Revisit Cambridge

I have been to Cambridge a couple of times before in the winter to go shopping, but I would like to visit in the summer so I can explore more.
