New Year’s Resolutions: Tips to help you achieve them

2. CREATE A WISHLIST

Sit down, take out your favorite pen and notebook. (We would also recommend a nice cup of tea, but that’s optional) Ask yourself ‘What are the places on earth you need to see in this life?’ You will probably end up with a dozen destinations, then ask yourself this: ‘What are the places you’ve dreamed about visiting for a very long time?’ Has that helped narrow down the list? Now finally, ask yourself: ”Where do you absolutely want to go this year?’ Congratulations, you should now have a really good bucket list of places to see this year.

3. PLAN AHEAD

You know the quote ‘Don’t call it a dream, call it a plan’ ? Make this your motto in 2019 and plan your trips! Have a look at the destination beforehand, check the best spots, the secret places and insider tips from locals, search in the internet, buy books, prepare and plan. That’s what makes your travel more realistic, build up the excitement of your trip and, in a way, extend it. Last but not least, planning ahead can help you save money.

We have researched the best time to book flights for your next short trip, summer holidays or weekends away. Did you ask yourself when is the best time to book flights?

According to our research, January and February are in the Top 3 of the best months to book cheap flights.

When booking on Fridays it is even cheaper. You want to travel to Asia or America, essentially long-haul, then book in November. It is the cheapest month for those international flights out of Europe.

The cheapest month to fly is June. Flights from the U.K. average at 245 Pounds. Compared to December that reaches up to  330 pounds you can save up to 100 pounds.

NOT RESULTS, BUT PROCESS

Why didn’t you follow up on your old resolutions at some point? Maybe it was just the results you liked but the way to achieve them was too much to handle? Let’s fall in love with the process instead of the result. With travel as your very own resolution you can follow a lifestyle that makes you happy: The globetrotter lifestyle! It’s all about learning, planning, experiencing (and of course a lot of days with sand between your toes).

Travel more in 2019 for less!
