We're hoping for a good year this year, and I've been shopping the sales this January. Not for clothes, or furniture, or any of the usual stuff. Instead I've been seeking out some bargain deals which will take us away to explore new places both in this country and further afield.
So far we have weekends away booked for February, March, April and August. A week away in June and plans for two weeks in November. Some of the accommodation is bargain basement, no frills and certainly no luxury but who cares, it's just somewhere to sleep at the end of the day and I'm willing to have the basics if it means we can get away more.
The picture is of a cute leather money box, which I also found in the sales, this has now replaced orange kitty as the home for all our loose change ... which every now and then finds it's way in to the holiday account at the bank. It's surprising how quickly it adds up.
Are you planning any exciting trips this year?
