2014 is barely over and my 2015 diary is already filling up fast. I am soooooo excited about all the fantastic trips and events I have lined up for this year, and I wanted to share them with you all and also ask for some advice.
At the end of this month I will be back on my skis again – yippee! – on a one week holiday to Arinsal in Andorra. I actually first learnt to ski in Andorra 20 years ago, and I haven’t been back there in 18 years, so it will be interesting to see how the principality has changed and also how much my skiing has improved. The last time I was there they were building a huge gondola to connect Arinsal with Pal, so I can’t wait to explore this much bigger ski area.
In March I am travelling down to Brighton for a weekend to attend the Brighton Vegfest. Brighton is a Mecca for vegetarians and I love, love, love the place. I expect to eat way too much great plant-based food, spend lots of money shopping in the lanes and meet lots of inspirational veggies.
My big news of 2015 is that I’m going to Alaska – and I still have to pinch myself every time I say that. Yes, I am actually going to Alaska. From 20th June I will be touring the country for two weeks, experiencing as much as possible and taking lots of photos. I’ll also be there for the midnight sun, which I am so excited about. I am currently trying to free up the two weeks previous to that so that I can start my journey in San Francisco and travel up to Anchorage by bus, ferry and train. If anyone has ever taken the ferry from Bellingham to Whittier, or knows someone who has, I would really appreciate any info you can give me on the journey. The longest journey I have ever taken on a boat was from Rhodes to Crete in Greece, and that was an awful experience, so I’m nervous about spending almost five days on one.
Green Gathering 2015 is looking to be even better than last year’s event and I’m hoping to return with my godchildren, although my goddaughter is currently on good behaviour watch to try and secure her place on the trip. They have both been nagging me all winter about when we can next go camping, even when it’s been minus temperatures outside and all the cars have been frozen over. You’ve got to love the optimism of kids!
I can’t wait to share all my adventures in 2015 with you all. Add a comment and let me know what you have planned for this year.
