New Year's Resolutions (Other than Eating Less and Exercising More)
Welcome to January! Hope you've had a wonderful and restful holiday. I've eaten my body weight in Terry's Chocolate Orange and am looking forward to existing on a diet of lettuce
leaves this month... watch this space. (Actually don't, because it will probably be painstakingly boring.)
First order of business, will you make any new year's resolutions? I'm curious to know... I didn't make any last year, other than to say that 2016 would be our year of 'yes', which meant Team Ellie & Co (er, Dan and I...) tackled the bucket list with a trip-of-a-lifetime to Cape Town, an off-beat weekend in Porto, dancing all night at the Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, ate dinner in a Belle Epoque bar in Paris, discovered the secret island of Gozo (post to come...), bought some art, found the Venice of Portugal, spent lots of time rediscovering my own city and went on a date to London's oldest cinema. Tired, much?
Here are a few resolutions I may, or may not, stick to for this year:
Pay a visit to this swinging 60s rainbow hotel
Learn a great party trick
Get over my fear of bridges...
Create more curious travel posts for my 'Curious reasons to visit...' series. First one here.
Wear heels more. (Learn to walk in them first.)
Use my set of movie hotel notepads, rather than just stare at them in the box.
Start a collection of this vintage travel magazine.
Choose a badass woman from history to admire.
