Monthly Blog Overview: February 2017

February. A lot has happened in the shortest month of the year. But I can’t tell you anything just yet. 🙂 Anyway, I finished my course. Now I have to study a lot since I have to pass 9 exams in April. But then I’ll get my new licence. What is it? I’ll tell you in April. Also, I had to postpone my trip to Munich because of the exams so hopefully we’ll manage to go to Germany in May instead of late March. I didn’t blog much because I didn’t have a lot of free time. To be perfectly honest, I also kind of lost my motivation for blogging. However, I opened Instagram account for this blog!:) Yay! And I’m totally hooked already. Have you seen my post on postcards exchange? Would you like to get involved? If you want to send & receive pretty postcards get in touch with me via email at trpbtravels@yahoo.com.

How was your February?

Monthly Blog Overview: January 2017

I wrote about Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk last month

January. I’m not one of those people who make some special new year’s resolution and then forget all about it by the end of January. But I’d like to feel/be more optimistic this year. I used to be so happy-go-lucky when I was younger. I don’t know why I became so cynical and even bitter and afraid of trying out new things. However, I did start this blog a year and a half ago (almost). Moreover, I enrolled at a course two weeks ago and I’ve already started attending the lectures. I won’t tell you just yet what it is but it’s definitely related to travel 🙂 And I’ve cut my hair! It’s again as short as it was when I went to Brussels two years ago. So, actually a lot of changes in January. Also, I’ve booked a hotel in Munich, Germany but I’m not so sure that we’ll actually go there at the end of March. Somehow I lost my travel mojo 😦 . Thus, I’m not sure if there’s a point in travelling at all if I feel like that. Hopefully I’ll change my mind by March. I mean, I’ve been thinking about visiting Munich for so long….

I probably won’t have a lot of time for blogging during February but I’ll see how I’ll manage. Thanks for sticking around 🙂 So, in case you missed them:

2016 on the Red Phone Box travels

Who would have thought that I would write constantly for almost a year and a half? I certainly didn’t think so when I hit publish for the first time back in 2015. And here I am now, 132 posts later,  looking back at 2016 on my blog. Firstly, I’d like to thank all my readers and followers! 🙂 Your support means a lot to me, especially since only a handful of my friends know about my travel blog. I don’t have a lot of travel plans for 2017 actually. My first and foremost travel goal is to finally visit Munich, Germany. But I’ll wait for a month or so until I make any real travel arrangements. After that, if I find a good deal, a cheap flight or if I suddenly want to visit badly some place, I’ll go. If not, I’ll stay at home. Travel isn’t everything! That’s one lesson I learnt the hard way in 2016. Anyway, I still haven’t written about all of my travels from 2016 (and earlier) and I want to continue to write my blog series Discover Croatia. So, there’ll be plenty of new posts in 2017! 🙂

Let’s take a look at 2016 on the Red Phone Box travels:

Monthly Blog Overview: December 2016

Opatija, Croatia
Advent Wreath in Opatija

December. To be honest I felt more festive in November than in December. I mean, I attended two lovely Christmas events at the last weekend of November and I visited a chocolate festival in Opatija at the first weekend of December. But then I had another business trip and some other unpleasant obligations and my 33rd birthday. I so wasn’t looking forward to that! I felt like I didn’t accomplish much in the past year but in the end I had three lovely birthday meals so it wasn’t that bad after all. 🙂 Christmas was spent with family and I have so many sweets in my cupboard right now. I hope you had peaceful and joyful holidays too! I’m looking forward to 2017. I think I deserve some happy news finally!

Monthly Blog Overview: November 2016

I wrote about Christmas markets in Villach & Velden, Austria

November. Actually November is one of my least favourite months. Somehow this November wasn’t that bad despite the almost non-stop rain which lasted for around 10 days straight! Also, I didn’t travel anywhere and I didn’t get any good news. But I am felling all right, I guess. Even kind of optimistic:) I think I need to thank my early Christmas shopping this year for making me feel better ( I know retail therapy sounds so clichéd but I am so happy with my new Christmas jumper). Going to two Christmas season opening events this last weekend in November (which is the first Advent weekend) cheered me up a lot too. I mean you can’t feel down after drinking whiskey hot chocolate and mulled wine, right?;) I’m so looking forward to December. I’ll be quite busy actually so I might not post as much as I did this month ( 12 posts). And it’s my birthday soon too! I’ll be 33. Oh, I’m so old…:)

Monthly Blog Overview: October 2016

October. And suddenly Autumn came. I can’t believe it’s only two months till the end of the year. It’s still 2015 in my head. I can’t cope with 2017 coming so soon 🙂 I feel like I spent the entire year dealing with various family health issues. On a brighter note, I recently spent a few days in Florence on a business trip. Since I had some free time I went for a walk and discovered a small botanical garden. That was a rather pleasurable discovery. Also, I finally did some hiking again after a long time and I’ve decided to share a few photos from that autumnal walk with you. I’m not looking forward to November. In my book that’s one of the dreariest months of the year. But then comes December and my birthday and Christmas 🙂 I do love Christmas markets! So how was your October?

Sky garden, London
I recently wrote about my visit to Sky Garden, London

September. Back to school, back to work kind of a month. It has always meant new beginnings to me. Alas, it didn’t deliver on its promise this time:( I had planned to write more but I got sidetracked by other important things e.g.life. However, I started the month with a bang: I co-hosted the monthly Travel linkup with the theme: your most meaningful/interesting food experience. I wrote about my favourite desserts around Europe. I really enjoyed reading about other bloggers’ food experiences on their travels. I particularly liked these posts: Eating pigeon in Egypt5 must try foods in Croatia and Snacking around the World.

I’d like to thank the hosts of the travel linkup for their invite one more time: Angie from SilverSpoon London, Emma from Adventures of a London Kiwi and Jessi from Two feet, One World blog.

I started a new blog series Discover Croatia and in the first installment I wrote about beautiful island Rab. I’ll try to write at least once a month about Croatia 🙂
