I booked my first solo trip!

prague trip

I can’t quite believe it. I’ve booked my first solo holiday !!

In my to do list for this year, I said I’d love to do a weekend in Italy. Florence to be precise. But unless I fancied a few flight changes and awkward landing times, it wasn’t going to happen.

Well, just not yet anyway. I wanted my first trip abroad by myself to be as simple (and soon) as possible. So I went for my second destination choice, Prague.

It’s happening in February and I can’t wait!

Time for me to celebrate.

Bare with me as I get a lil mushy… I’m so proud of myself for getting to a point where I feel confident enough to do this. Thinking back to me 5 years ago, I was a completely different person confidence wise.

Hardly leaving the house because I was too anxious. Overthinking every little detail (something i still do way too much, but i don’t let it consume me like i used to).

And now I’m going to a different country by myself. To some people it’s nothing, to others it’s a big thing. Honestly, all I really care about is how important this trip is to me.

13 year old Vicky would find some geeky way to tell me to “fuck off” (i didn’t swear back then, i was a good egg) in disbelief if I could go back and tell her all the things I’m now achieving, which I’ve done all by myself.

Okay, I’m going to stop praising myself up now… I’m just so happy and bloody excited! Admittedly a little scared too, but that’s giving me even more of a push to make the most of it.

Ahhh, a weekend in Prague!

Now to get planning so I don’t miss out anything I want to do.

More wine though first, of course.

  17. […] I often get nervous about, but I love it at the same time. To the point where I’m going to Prague by myself in less than a week (!!!), which makes me want to scream in both excitement and […]
