At the risk of sounding like everyone else, I really can't believe how quickly this year is flying. However, I'm really excited for the year ahead because I have lots of plans, goals and things I want to achieve this year. As I mentioned in this post, I always like to look back at the end of each year and see all the things I've done because as someone once said "Don't live the same year 75 times and call it a life".
I'm actually in Poland right now and super excited because I've never visited the country before. It was funny how this trip was planned because we were originally planning a trip to Barcelona but my friend messed up the booking and we ended up going to Warsaw instead!
2. My Best Friend's Wedding
My best friend is getting married this year and I couldn't be more excited for her. The wedding is actually being held in Santorini, Greece which is just exciting in itself! I bought a beautiful dress a few weeks ago so make sure to follow me on Instagram (@wonky_lauren) so you don't miss it.
3. End of Exams
I have my final law exam this summer and if I pass that will be the end of all my exams, forever! Well I hope haha. Keep your fingers crossed for me, I get the results in August!!
4. My First Time in Africa
My friend and I are planning a trip to Marrakesh, Morocco this summer and it will be my first time in Africa. I can't wait to experience a different culture, food and the street markets. If you have any suggestions of things to do, please leave them below :)
I said to myself I wasn't going to do festivals this year as I wanted to save my money to travel instead but when I saw the line up for SW4 I couldn't help but get excited. Maybe just one festival...
6. LA and Vegas
This is probably the holiday I'm most excited for. I've wanted to visit Vegas for the longest time but just never got the chance but now we have finally booked it and figured since it's so far from London but only an hour on the plane from LA, we would throw that in too.
7. New Car
I really want to get a new car this year. I've currently had an Audi TT for the past 3 years but I'd like to get something a bit more economical. I'm thinking the Fiat 500, what do you think??
8. Budapest or Prague?
I really want to take a short European break at the end of this year, just before my birthday. I'd love to do Prague but I hear it gets super cold in winter so maybe Budapest instead. Any recommendations?
I turn 30 at the end of this year, boo! Haha, I'm trying to look at it positively because I'm sure when I turn 40 I'll wonder what I was complaining about! I guess it's an exciting milestone. So I basically have 8 months to get my shit together because then I'll be a 'proper adult' lol.
10. New Year in Dublin
Last new year I celebrated in Orlando (post here) and I really loved being away from London and doing something different so this New Year we are trying to plan a trip to Dublin. We figured if we booked over the summer we'd get a pretty good deal.
What are you excited for this year?
