With the end of 2018 on the horizon, we decided to have a little trip down memory lane for our latest #HolidayChat, which was all about 'Your 2018 Holidays'. What better way to see out the year than by remembering some of your favourite destinations and memories from the last 12 months!?
Grab a coffee and prepare to reminisce with us…
With so many holidays taken, it’s always hard to pick. But our Twitter chatters certainly did try to narrow their favourites down…
A1: Best place I have visited for holiday was definitely #Prague for 6 days, love the cuisine and language and the sights there. I think I've had enough of goulash after that though, although I had two types - a pub and a fancy restaurant version. #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/x8o7E3H4E2— Hannah Suarez (@superruserr) December 19, 2018
Probably my road trip this summer! (If I can cheat and say lots of places!). Id never done a trip like it previously! I went to Belgium, Germany, France and Switzerland, dipping into France, Netherlands and Litchenstein! We traveled with our dog for our anniversary! #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/GI0H2vLA5g— Michaela (@HeyImMichaela) December 19, 2018
A1 we went to Cayman in June and participated in their annual open water swimming competition. It is great to travel for sports competitions but then also have a few days to explore the island and the sites! #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/kv4T7b3ug6— Michael (@swimforce01) December 19, 2018
A1 - Italy or Slovenia (it's so hard to choose between the two). We went on a 2 week campervan roadtrip and spent the night parked up on the shore of Lake Garda, up in the mountains of the Dolomites and beside Lake Bled. #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/jrvRybz7jD— April (@aprileveryday) December 19, 2018
Scotland was a popular missed destination this year, but luckily for those of us in England, it’s one that can be easily ticked off the 2019 list!
Copenhagen, for me. Booked for February #HolidayChat— Laura Haley-Inside Laura’s Head (@InsdeLaurasHead) December 19, 2018
#holidaychat A2: My standard answer to this is always 'Bolivia' ...— Barefoot Backpacker (@RTWBarefoot) December 19, 2018
A2 - Scotland and Cyprus. Hoping to do both next year! Also Madeira, but that's a whole other story #HolidayChat— April (@aprileveryday) December 19, 2018
I would have liked to visit Argentina and Chile and so hope that I will be able to in 2019! #HolidayChat— L (@Franglais27) December 19, 2018
Edinburgh for sure! I’m going to try schedule a visit next year #HolidayChat— Rachel Williams (@RachelMWills) December 19, 2018
Can we say all of them? We’d love to re-live all of our holidays!
#Helsinki. I took a birthday trip to the Finnish capital & got all 'zen' in the sea pool and the sauna. I was SO stressed before I went & the saunas were all about the importance of #wellbeing & taking time for yourself & the experience was so intensely relaxing #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/Mp2XOwCZSf— Michaela (@HeyImMichaela) December 19, 2018
A4: Anything that involves holidays with the family. #HolidayChat I usually like the moment when we see each other for the first time (living in different cities).— Hannah Suarez (@superruserr) December 19, 2018
A4 - Just chilling in our campervan for hours after a long hike at the top of a mountain taking in all the views. And waking up to those views the next morning. Something I'll never forget! #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/T6eqpLKDZu— April (@aprileveryday) December 19, 2018
A5 I spoke with this gentleman in #bhaktapur who had been making pottery by hand for more than fifty years while his grandson sits behind playing on his iPhone. #kathmandu #nepal ????#HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/B0wBLFkqMR— Michael (@swimforce01) December 19, 2018
When I went to #Helsinki we visited the Rock Church and stayed for a service. Im not overly religious but it was a really amazing space; so calming. They sometimes hold rock concerts in here too, to get young people more connected with religion! Cool, no? #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/1lFjuzJG3J— Michaela (@HeyImMichaela) December 19, 2018
A5) This photo was taken in the Wadi Rum desert in Jordan where I had an overnight stay. It is very remote but a stunning location and has been used as a film location for films such as The Martian and Star Wars: Episode IX #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/alo8mcFX9U— L (@Franglais27) December 19, 2018
And can I share one more? This was January 1st 2018... woke up in #Iceland, #Reykjavik after an explosive NYE. We attended a New Year Day sea swim where locals dress up and go swimming in the Atlantic. Its such good fun and the BEST NY ever! #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/x28b2WgcxZ— Michaela (@HeyImMichaela) December 19, 2018
