New years resolutions update: March 2014

This month I resolved to take a trip on my own.  Although I enjoy travelling, I haven’t done much at all since I broke up with my long-term boyfriend last year.  The thought of going off somewhere on my own is a bit terrifying to me.

I know that I could go travelling with friends or my family.  And I definitely want to at some stage.  But I’d also really like to take a trip by myself.  I just want to prove to myself that I’m capable of looking after myself on a trip and taking that leap on my own.

There are also lots of benefits to travelling alone.  I’d be able to spend my time exactly how I want without worrying about my travelling partners’ itinerary.  I wouldn’t need to visit landmarks I find boring or spend ages arguing over what to do with a free afternoon.  I’d be able to go wherever my mood takes me, choose the places I want to eat at and spend as long as I want in each place.  I like the idea of being able to take a trip entirely at my own leisure.


So, the truth is I haven’t actually taken a trip yet.  BUT I have booked a weekend getaway for myself at the beginning of May.  I will be heading to Chiltern, which is a little Victorian town that I’ve never been to before.  I was drawn to the town not only because it’s somewhere that’s entirely new to me, but also because there is a spooky-looking lantern-lit ghost tour that I really want to take.  I’ll spend the rest of my trip relaxing and exploring.  I’m really excited about it.

So even though I haven’t actually achieved this month’s goal, I’m well on the way to ticking it off my list.
