Playa Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica

I am pretty sure that my friends are fed up of hearing me say ‘I want to be on a beach!’ I know I’m fed up of saying it. Living in London isn’t the most exciting when you consider yourself to be a total beach bum. Although I do love living in a city (and London’s one of the best!), I really miss waking up to sunshine and just randomly jumping in the car and driving to the beach for the weekend. That was one of the best things about living in Costa Rica.

I moved back to London a year ago and in 2012 alone went to Paris, Morocco, Belgium, Poland and the USA, but I haven’t been in the sun for almost 6 months now and I miss it. This year I have a few trips in the pipeline. I’ve been spending my weekend plotting how to use up my tiny 16 day work holiday allowance (It’s actually 20, but 4 days must be taken at Christmas). I have finally decided that the best thing to do is to break it up into little trips, so that I don’t have the winter blues again, having used up all of my holiday earlier in the year. It’s becoming an almost military procedure as I battle with getting dates, plans and finances all into one plan.

Do you have any trips booked this year?
