Winter is coming. It’s true, whether you like the cold weather or not! Winter is a great time of year for travel since you have so many options, including heading to warmer climates (a favourite of mine), exploring Christmas markets, doing winter sports or experiencing the sheer beauty of winter.Some of my favourite travel bloggers have put forward their top choices for winter destinations this year… where will you choose to go?

2017 has been a pretty crazy year in terms of travel and blogging. This year, my blog started to pick up, my Instagram hit 100k followers (woohoo!) and I went on my first press trip. Although not quite as catchy as my 2016 (21 countries in my 21st year), 2017 was definitely more epic and probably also more stressful!Here goes a round up of a crazy year...

The resounding question that I've been asked when I said I had just got back from Sweden was, "oh, did you go to Stockholm?"No! (Although I have been to Stockholm before.) There is more to Sweden than just Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden's second-largest city, is definitely a place that deserves more visitors!Gothenburg, or Göteborg (yur-te-borry) in Swedish, is a city of delicious food, buzzing café culture and a love of microbreweries and craft beer. While not as "glamorous" as it's big sister Stockholm, the industrial port city of Gothenburg is definitely a place that a visitor to Sweden shouldn't miss.
