What are your travel plans for 2019?
Mine seem to be centred in Asia, Europe and Pacific. At this stage I will go to 15 countries.
In Asia, I will spend a few months travelling to eight countries (none of them are new destinations) and in the Pacific: Australia and New Zealand (not pictured on the map below).
I want to see if I can finally try either ANA, Eva or Garuda, airlines that have been ranked five star by Skytrax. Every time I get close to trying them, it does not happen! This may mean I get to add stops in Jakarta or Taipei.
Europe will hopefully get me a few train rides, at least three new countries and a family wedding!
I aim to retain One World Emerald status through Qantas and get back Gold Status with Virgin Australia.
My aim is to run in 13 competitive fun runs in five countries. One outcome will be to raise funds for MS, Cancer and a Children’s Hospital. I am also helping organise a team in a homelessness winter sleep out in Melbourne, Australia which last year raised $34,000. Hoping we beat that in 2019.
Happy New Year and May this year be safe for you and your family and for so many more of the world’s citizens and children who deserve peace. Bon voyage.
