"No matter how far you travel, you can never get away from yourself" - Haruki Muramaki (After The Quake)
If 2016 had one thing going for it it was that I managed to fit in a lot of trips away from the UK.
23 flights (due to TAP Portugal messing up our booking and necessitating a 45 minute Porto-Lisbon flight on the way home from Porto), 5 new countries visited (Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands, Vietnam and Singapore) and too many hours spent in airports to count made this year a pretty strong one for seeing a little more of the world. An up-coming trip in the diary, whether for two weeks or two days is definitely my favourite way to spend money and it helps those weeks speed by a little faster.
