#Take12Trips: April + May

Remember that time I wrote a monthly recap for March before the month was even over because I was so ahead on posts?

No denying that’s no longer the case. With an April where I was traveling outside the country or to different parts of England every weekend, and a May that saw similar levels of activity, I fell behind on post writing.

Both months were wonderful though- busy, but great. As for the rest of the year, I’m hitting reset on my plans to try and work a few more weekend getaways into my late summer and fall. I haven’t started booking travel yet, which is why so many months below are TBD for now.

Up next in June? A weekend in Edinburgh to see the friends from the States I drove around Ireland with. I left them in Galway, but they’re continuing the trip through Northern Ireland and Scotland for another week before ending in Edinburgh. Excited to see Scotland in the summertime 🙂
