It is a new year, a time to set new exciting goals. Thus, it is only suitable to share my 2019 exciting goals for my blog and social media channels. I started my blog in the autumn of 2015 but I wasn’t posting regularly. It took me a while to find my niche and to decide what to share. I started the blog with the idea to write posts about the student life in Glasgow and maybe travelling around Scotland, but then I moved for a year to Holland and I got to travel a lot. Thus, I decided to turn it into a travel blog. So, in October 2018 I finally came back to blogging. I decided to start with a challenge to share a blog each day called #psablogaday. Even though it didn’t work as planned, to share 30 blogs in 30 days I still wrote 18 blog posts. Considering it took me 3 years to write the first 18, I think I did pretty well, lol. I was promoting each blog on social media as well, so half of my days I spent writing new posts and the other half on Twitter and Facebook trying to get more exposure for my blog and it did pay off. Here is how I performed in 2018 blogwise.
I started a tradition at the end of 2017 to note down all the places I have visited during the year and to calculate the km I have travelled. At the end of 2018, I again listed all the places I have been to. My 2018 in travel looks like this: 23, 175 km, 23 different cities and 6 different countries. This included visiting two new countries – Poland and Spain. I went twice to Italy and I made the most of my stay in Holland by travelling and exploring new cities. In comparison, in 2017 I had travelled 14,089 km. I visited 19 cities, in 5 different countries and I checked off living in Holland from my bucket list.
The other day, my boyfriend and I were talking, and I said how much I miss the fact that the bar in Holland my friends and I were usually going to have a place to hang your jackets under the table. Here in the UK, I haven’t seen such a thing and it’s so inconvenient trying to find a place for your winter coat or jacket. So, I was thinking what other things I miss and I've managed to narrow the list to only 5 things I miss about living in the Netherlands.
