Happy New Year to all our fellow travellers and bloggers, we hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2013 brings much love, luck and happiness into your home.
Christmas and New Year was every bit as indulgent as we thought it would be, and while the remnants of the last nights Champagne is still playing havoc with my head, I feel optimistic and excited about 2013, and the only New Year’s Resolution I will be making is to travel more!
2012 was an interesting year to say the least, and now that I have firmly crossed ‘Climb Kilimanjaro’ off my bucket list, there is plenty of room for more adventures in the New Year.

Tomorrow it is back to the gym in preparation for the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour in Cape Town on March 10th, and while I am a little more nervous of this one-day 109km race around the Western Cape, than I was about climbing Kili, it provides us with the perfect excuse to visit my favourite city in the world!
While in South Africa, we will be popping over to neighbouring Namibia to view some of the most amazing Safari properties in the Wilderness Safari portfolio, and as we are now a destination specialist for this luxury brand, we look forward to helping other cross ‘Dream Holiday’ off their own bucket list.
Taking of dream holidays or holidays of a lifetime, on October 4th we will be heading off on an amazing journey around the world! Jetting into Las Vegas from London, we will spend a couple of nights enjoying Sin City, before heading to Hawaii where we will join our 19-night Celebrity Cruise across the South Pacific! Stopping at Bora Bora, Tahiti, Moorea, and New Zealand before our final port of call –down under in Sydney, this really is a dream come true, and it just goes to show that my 12-days of Christmas travel style blog did the trick!
If you are one of the many travellers and bloggers who have a bucket list filled with dreams, we hope you get to cross at least one or two off it in 2013, and will leave you with my all-time favourite travel quotes by Mark Twain and St. Augustine…
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” St. Augustine
