What an epic year 2014 was for us. We completed our overland adventure from London to Melbourne, settled back into ‘normal life’ (for us anyway) back home and scattered in a few European travels along the way. From spending New Years on the world’s highest train in China, to the temples of Bagan in Myanmar, it would be near impossible to pick a top travel experience.
Over the last few weeks many travel bloggers have been recapping on their 2014 adventures, and while we are incredibly proud of what we achieved we cannot wait to get stuck into 2015. From some great new adventures to hopefully an updated website (if we can figure it out!) we are planning for The Smart Way Round to get bigger and better!
First things first though, we are excited to announce that we are heading to Cuba! A long time bucket list destination, we are off to explore this amazing country at the end of February and are looking forward to some fun, sun and rum when we get there!
We also have a week in Prague planned – one of our favourite European cities. In July Natalie is off to explore the Faroe Islands and Iceland (I’m likely to be stuck at work, but hey I travel around Europe for a living so don’t feel too sorry for me!). So 2015 is already shaping up as another exciting year for us.
This year we are also approaching a major travel milestone. We are both knocking on the door of visiting 100 countries (not all the same ones mind you), and are trying to plan how to celebrate this achievement. If you have any ideas please drop us a comment, email or Facebook post, between us we cannot decide which country to make lucky number 100.
So roll on 2015 and all the adventures it holds. Wherever you are off too, happy travels!
Cuba! That is awesome guys! We will be following for sure. We’re hoping with Obama’s recent decision regarding US and Cuba relations that it makes travel for US citizens a little bit easier. We’ve heard great things!
A friend of mine hit the 100 country mark three or four years ago and chose Iran for his “big one.” Lovely country and lovely people by all accounts.
Thanks Tim, Iran is definitely in the list!
