This year is going to be full of travel for me and i’m so excited to get out there and explore. So i thought i’d share with you my 2017 travel plans so you know what countries and cities i’m planning on going to and also so you’ll know what to expect from www.daninaughton.com this year. I’ll be keeping you up to date from the road and blogging about all my adventures and there’s going to be loads of exciting content coming.
So first up is a summer spent in Europe.
In June i’m heading off on the long haul flight from Perth to London and will be going on my first group tour with Topdeck. Me and my partner picked the Mega European Tour which goes through 22 countries throughout Europe. Our tour starts in London where we head straight to Paris and start our 50 day adventure through Europe.
Loire Valley, France
French Riviera, France
Swiss Alps, Switzerland
Plitvice Lakes, Croatia
Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina
Prague, Czech Republic
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Our tour finishes back in London where we’ll be spending a few days exploring London and seeing my partner’s family before he heads home and i head to Milan and then to Cinque Terre.
Cinque Terre, that beautiful little spot on the coast of Italy, has been somewhere i’ve been dreaming of for years and it’s even been the screensaver on my phone to motivate me every single day to get there.
That dream is finally going to come true because i’m travelling there by myself for a week. I’m so beyond excited and nervous because it’ll be my first time travelling solo. I won’t have much time in Milan on the way back to London to catch my flight home but i’m aiming to at least see the Duomo. I have the day in London before i catch my flight home so i’ll head out to explore some more before ending my European summer.

After a few months home to save up some more money me and my partner will be heading off to South East Asia to explore. We haven’t figured out the details yet but this is what we hope to do while we’re over there.
Siem Reap, Cambodia
Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
Nha Trang, Vietnam
Hoi An, Vietnam
Halong Bay, Vietnam
Luang Prabang, Laos
On the wish list:
Now for the places that i’m dreaming of going to this year and if i get the chance then these two are at the top of my list.
Iceland has been at the top of my travel wish list since it first started to pop up on social media and i’ve been obsessed with going ever since. I’ve got a pretty packed year of travel but if i get the chance to go somewhere else, Iceland is where i’ll be going.
And second on the wish list is Bali. I feel like i’m the only Australian who hasn’t been to Bali. Because we’re so close it seems like everyone always has a Bali trip coming up and i would like this year to be the year i get over there. I’m not into partying or anything though so when i make it there it’ll be all about Ubud, Uluwatu and the Gilli Islands for me.
