We’re going on an Adventure! 101 in 1001

We’re going on an Adventure! 101 in 1001

IMG_0769

Today is Wednesday 28th March 2018. In 1001 days it will be Wednesday 23rd December 2020. Why is that important? Well, I’m setting myself a challenge. It’s an idea shamelessly stolen from another blogger, I’ll admit but in the spirit of imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, it’s an idea I really like and want to replicate for myself.

The idea is taken from blogger Becky Bedbug as she set herself a challenge to do 101 things in 1001 days. Hers range across all sorts of things such as reading a set number of books, seeing shows, visiting places etc. You can read all about hers here.

Mine is purely for visiting places. Aidan and I are forever saying ‘oh I really want to go there!’ so I’ve picked my top 101 and I’m going to aim to do as many of them as I can in the next 1001 days. I’m inevitably not going to be able to do them all but it will inspire me to keep adventuring and discovering more both at home and abroad. I’ve also added in some ‘bonus revisits’, they’re not counting towards my 101 places but they’re places I’ve already ticked off and would very much like to go back to again.

The majority are places within the UK, but I’ve included some European destinations. I’m unlikely to travel outside of Europe in the next couple of years and my list would probably have ended up with 1001 places if I hadn’t limited myself to Europe!

Everything is being listed alphabetically so I can find them to cross them off again and because I don’t want to put certain importance on certain places.

Each place name is a clickable link to the relevant website in case any areas pique your interest and you want to go and visit yourself. I’ll be keeping this post up to date, crossing off the ones I’ve manage to get to and referring back as I write blog posts about the places that I visit.
