My Travel Destinations
I enjoy reading about the travel destinations of other people and hearing about what they have see and done, and learning about their adventures both good and bad. Over the next few months I hope to entertain you with my own experiences through my blog about My Travel Destinations.
Some of my travel destinations were big adventures and others a “walk in the park”. I don’t think travel destinations always have to be far away, some on just a bus ride away. I will include some of my local adventures because for some people my home area is their bigger adventure and perhaps I can share some local knowledge.
Some are in the planning and I will share my planning with you so you can see the way I used IT to get where I want to be, at a price I can afford.
The big one in the planning is the Camino de Santiago and I have devoted a whole section to this because I plan to walk the whole 500 miles and I want to research and plan it better than I did for my last Camino. There seems to be a lot of fellow pilgrims who are searching for advice too and I hope to provide them with an easy way to sort the wheat from the chaff and show them how they can use the internet to help them plan their Camino.
The third theme of my Travel destinations is the dream, or the wish list, most certainly not a bucket list as I am not ready to think about that yet. I am a great believer in having a dream to work towards, as I have stressed in my DIY Package Holidays. I think the whole World is like an exciting chocolate box and I can get please just from contemplating what to pick next as possible travel destinations.
