Travel Round-up: Holiday suggestions

travelJanuary is traditionally the month when many holidays are booked. Years ago this involved trawling all the travel agents in the high street, collecting bundles of brochures and circling hotels with the best pools. Now the process is far more complicated with all manner of choices available on the internet.

With this in mind, I have collected some diverse posts from a number of travel bloggers, just to add to your post-Christmas holiday hunting. Have fun looking for your ideal break!

About Trish Burgess

Trish Burgess started her blog ‘Mum’s Gone To…’ with a series of posts called ‘Mum’s Gone To Iceland’ where she was extremely ill on a whale-watching trip and thought she would die snow-mobiling on a glacier. Thankfully she survived and continued with less scary family trips: ‘Mum’s Gone To…Canada, Cyprus, Barcelona, Berlin etc. Originally from Newcastle upon Tyne she now lives in South Lincolnshire and travels with her husband and occasionally with her son, who is now at university.

    Thanks for including me and my short break in Swansea Bay. There’s so much inspiration here. I’m having trouble collecting my thoughts on 2017 holidays at the moment. I feel like a kid in a sweet shop!
