It’s time for my 2018 Travel Destinations Round Up. I know, I know. It’s hard to believe it but 2018 has nearly come to an end. I think I say this every year, but it still amazes me how quickly time flies when you’re exploring the world.

2018 Travel Destinations

2018 at a glance

This year, my 2018 travel destinations include visiting three continents, twelve countries and twenty-two destinations, with a lot of old favourites revisited. In terms of new countries visited, my 2018 travel destinations saw me make it to Scandinavia for the first time, with visits to Sweden and Denmark as well as tacking on a day trip to explore the Principality of Monaco on the French Riviera.

October in the French Riviera

In terms of old favourites, I made my third trip to London this year, but also managed to explore more of England with a couple of days in historical Bath and the fairy-tale like New Forest. I also set foot in Paris for the third time this year and returned to France later in the year to visit the French Riviera including Nice, Grasse, Cannes, Monaco, Eze Village and Antibes. My 2018 travel destinations seem to be the year of third visits, with my March trip to Wellington also being my third time in New Zealand.

June in Scandinavia

Most of my travel was done in Europe this year, where I partnered with high speed Belgian rail company Thalys to take readers on a European train journey around Central Western Europe including Brussels, Paris, Cologne, Rotterdam and Amsterdam – a real highlight of the year.

November in Miami

My 2018 travel destinations also included an adventure to the south of the USA for the first time, with a far-too-brief stay in Miami, Florida in early November. Suffice it to say that Miami is already very high on my list of cities to return to.

London in January

And lastly in my home country of Australia, I managed to continue exploring my new home of Sydney and surrounds with trips to some of the most beautiful natural wonders including the Blue Mountains, the Southern Highlands and Berry. I’ve also managed to get back to my hometown in Melbourne several times as well as reliving my childhood holiday times in the Gold Coast.

Here’s to another year of adventures in 2019!

Thanks for reading in 2018 and Happy New Year!
