UK Seaside Bucket List – 5 Staycation ideas for 2016

Bucket List, London & the UK
As one year ends, another begins (duh!), and I'm sure I'm not the only one already pondering travel plans for the year ahead. Until I win the lottery, planning is a balancing act between aspirational and practical - so when Travelodge* asked me to share my UK Seaside Bucket List ideas for 2016 I let out a squee and began to plot. I lurrrrrrve to travel overseas, but this island I call home has so much to offer and I just can't help getting all enthusiastic about the UK; I'm all for planning a weekend break or even a little Staycation. In fact my biggest problem is deciding whether to go somewhere new or re-visit somewhere I've been before. I know, right? #firstworldproblems.

One of the most frequent Bucket List conversations I have is about seeing one of nature's biggest light shows - the Aurora Borealis, aka Northern Lights. I love researching these sorts of dream trips, so today I thought I'd share what I consider to be 5 great places in Europe to view the Northern Lights from - they are all clearly wonderful so it's just which destination appeals to you personally. Pick one and do it, or do them all! :) 5 Great Places In Europe To View The Northern Lights The Northern Lights 'season' runs from September through March when the longer hours of night give you the best opportunity to view. Technically the Lights can occur year round, but obviously are only seen when it's clear and very dark. This spectacular natural phenomenon is created when cha

I don't know about you, but when planning a trip, I research hotels like crazy. Actually, scratch that - even when I'm not planning a trip, I still stalk hotels on the web like crazy.

Bucket List
So there I was, innocently sipping my tea this morning while browsing through some blogs when I happened upon a post by North East Family Fun with her family's travel Bucket List ideas. I often read her blog so I didn't think twice about heading over to check it out. This proved fortunate as not only did I enjoy reading where she'd like to travel with her family, but discovered it was an entry for a travel Bucket List competition with Transun. Now ordinarily I am not a competition kind of a girl, because you know what? I never, ever win anything. Like, ever. There can be a 50-50 chance and I will still lose every darn time. However, I figured just this once I would join in the fun as:- The prize is to see the Northern Lights - an experience already on my Bucket List It's
