My 10 NEW Countries in 2017!

At New Years Eve I thought my life was pretty much the way it should be, so I decided not to make any new years resolutions. But then I traveled to South Africa and Swaziland, where I had never been before. I traveled all by myself and kept a diary to be reminded of all the amazing days I spent there.

My trip in South Africa ended in Cape Town in late January and somehow made me realize that I still have goals and things I want to achieve. One of those things was to visit ten new countries in 2017.

For me, it’s not the most difficult challenge to visit ten new countries when living in Europe. However, working full time and studying full time as well takes time management to a totally new level.

But since I am under 26 years old it means that I can get SAS Youth Tickets and fly super cheap all over Europe. And suddenly one afternoon I had booked several holidays for this summer.

Here is my list of the 10 new countries I’ll visit in 2017:

  1. South Africa (done)
  2. Swaziland (done)
  3. Hungary
  4. Romania
  5. Montenegro
  6. Finland
  7. Russia
  8. To be announced
  9. To be announced
  10. To be announced

I hope you’ll all stay with me and keep reading my blog posts, because I am going to travel all by myself and would like to keep my readers as company occasionally.

Lots of love xx

    Spændende steder du kommer til at besøge i år. Hvert år de sidste 3 år har jeg haft et mål om at besøge 3 nye lande, mens jeg i år har sat mig et nyt mål om at besøge 12 lande (nye som gamle). Ungarn, Rusland og Finland er 3 af de lande, jeg kommer til at besøge i år (:
    Til dit 10. land kan jeg absolut anbefale dig at besøge Amsterdam og Holland, hvor jeg har boet det sidste år. Så hyggeligt et land med utroligt mange smukke byer! (:

      Hej Camilla. Hvor er det fedt, at du skal se nogen af de samme lande som jeg. Amsterdam og Holland har jeg allerede været i faktisk. Og der er jo så skønt. Giver dig helt ret.
      Glæder mig til at læse om dine 12 ture i år (det er jo vildt mange!!). 🙂

    Det lyder fedt!
    Jeg havde samme mål sidste år, men nåede kun de 9, da jeg ikke fik mit visum til Rusland – det kan være lidt af en pine med visum derover til, men det ved du nok 🙂
    Montenegro og Albanien er fantastiske lande som du kan glæde dig meget til. Glæder mig til at kigge med.

      9 lande er også virkelig godt klaret på et år! Jeg håber sådan, at jeg når dem alle 10. 😀
      Hvad var grunden til, at du ikke fik visum til Rusland?

    Jeg har faktisk aldrig tænkt over at have et bestemt antal lande at besøge som sit nytårsforsæt, men det skal jeg da helt sikkert have når vi springer ind i 2018. I øvrigt er det nogle virkelig spændende (og lidt anderledes) lande.
    Jeg bor lige nu i Australien og jeg drømmer derfor selvfølgelig om at rejse mere rundt her, men derudover også at besøge New Zealand, mere af Indonesien og nogle af alle de mange stillehavsøer rundt omkring.
    Jeg har i øvrigt lige fundet din blog og jeg elsker den!

      Åh, Australien er også stadig på min bucket list. Jeg håber, du nyder det og forhåbentligt får set alle de lande, du gerne vil.
      Og tusind tak, Nicoline! 🙂
