A couple of weeks ago I posted about my highlights of 2017, however I decided to leave out anything travel related as it was enough for a whole post in itself. I’ve actually been dying to write this post for a long time, but the last two weeks have been so busy with the launch of my freelance business that I have accidentally neglected my blog, oops… 2017 was definitely the year of travel for me and I hope that my new venture pays off so much that I can make 2018 just as, if not more, travel filled.
