Have you Packed the Camera - 2016 Travel Plans

At the start of every year I look at what money I have available and decide what travel plans I want to make; Where I would like to go, what I realistically think I can afford, and what I want to achieve for the year. I really enjoy doing this as it gives me a goal to work towards, and also something to look forward too in the upcoming months. Below are my current plans as of February 2016, please feel free to leave a comment and let me know where you will be travelling too this year!

May - Scotland west coast road trip

The Volkswagen converted campervan we will be staying in
  • Country: Scotland
  • Date: Early may
  • Type: Campervan road trip

After travelling down the West coast of the Republic of Ireland in 2015 I really liked the idea of the road trip - Moving around at your own leisure and staying in a new town each night. I have wanted to visit Scotland properly for years so looked at various locations and formulated a rough route for a road trip. We will be travelling in a converted Volkswagen T5 campervan which will be our mobile base for the week and travel mainly up the west coast of Scotland starting at Loch Lomond. This will be such an adventure, I simply cannot wait to get on the road and see what Scotland has to offer! I used a great little website called Camperbug to find a suitable campervan - If you are looking for a campervan to hire in the UK this site has loads of Volkswagen models to choose from.

July - Relaxation in Gran Canaria

Hotel Lopesan Maspolomas, Gran Canaria
  • Country: Spain (Canary Islands)
  • Date: July
  • Type: Relaxing beach holiday

To make a compromise with my significant other we try and go on a relaxing beach holiday where we can literally enjoy the sun, have a drink and get away from work. Last year was Ibiza and this year is Gran Canaria in the Canary Isles. I have not been to the Canary Islands before and am looking forward to exploring a new place and have some quality time with Lauren. We are stopping in the Lopesan Maspolomas hotel which is a large 4* with plenty of different pools, areas to relax, activities and close to the beach - Perfect!

August - Adventure in Greenland

The town of Illulissat on the west coast of Greenland
  • Country: Greenland, Illulissat
  • Date: August
  • Type: Sight-seeing, Exploration

After travelling to Antarctica in 2014 and far down in the southern hemisphere, I thought it would be a good idea to travel up north. I have been fascinated by Greenland since watching The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and cannot wait to visit Illulissat on the West Coast - This small town has around 4500 inhabitants and looks out onto a magnificent bay full of icebergs. I will travel to Iceland first and spend a few days there, and then fly across to Greenland. I am only staying in Greenland for 4 days, but there are some long day trips included in the tour price which should be simply epic!

So there you have it, my current plans for 2016! I am hoping to fit in a city break too somewhere in-between but I will have to see what money I have available and what time constraints with work etc. What plans have you made for this year? What exotic places will you be travelling too? I would love to hear from you!
