Taking a sabbatical: a dream come true

It has been two years since I started my travel blog Charlie Discovers. What a ride it has been! To kick off 2018 ànd my third year of blogging, I have some VERY exciting news to share with you: my boyfriend and I are taking a sabbatical from mid-February! I hardly can not believe it myself. It is something I have been dreaming of for a long time. We had a lot to figure out the past few months, but we managed to make it work. I guess there is a way when you have the will.

From mid-February until the end of August we will backpack through New Zealand and South-East Asia. An opportunity to enjoy freedom, life and what the world has to offer. I can. not. wait. I hope to share more with you on this sabbatical very soon.

Looking back on 2017

But before I look forward to this new year of blogging, I always enjoy looking back and sharing my highlights of the past year with you:

  • Discovering two new and incredibly beautiful countries: New Zealand and Slovenia. I also dedicated one post to the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana.
  • Taking time for family in Ardennes and Champagne.
  • Participating in blog awards for the first time: a friend introduced me to Bloggers UTD – The Travel Gathering. This event gathers travel- and lifestyle bloggers from all over the country and is being held in Brussels on February 3rd. I am really excited to meet fellow travel bloggers and discover their adventures. I also applied with two cases for the travel blog awards. Fingers crossed!

As always, I will keep you posted. 2018, I am ready for you!
