Topdeck 2012: European Travel Resolutions

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

The New Year may be well underway, but it’s never too late to make a resolution and set goals for 2012.

Here are Topdeck’s Top 10 European Travel Resolutions for inspiration!

1. Eat Better

Eat Better

Europe is known for its delicious and varied local foods, but when it comes to fresh and tasty cuisine it’s hard to go passed the Italians! Gelato, espresso, pasta, wine and, of course, the pizza - it won’t take long until you’re feeling the effects of la dolce vita!

2. Stress Less

Burning the candle at both ends? Working your fingers to the bone? Kick back, relax and enjoy the slower pace of life. It’s all about lazy days and crazy nights with Croatia Sailing – the only thing you’ll have to think about is whether to sunbake, have a drink or make a splash in the sea!

3. Meet new people

Get out there and mingle! Experiences are always that much better when they’re shared with mates. Travelling with like-minded 18-39 year olds, you’ll soon be hitting it off and making friends for life.

4. Learn something new

Travelling is the perfect way to keep your brain ticking over. How about practicing some foreign words and phrases before your big trip (there are plenty to choose from in Europe.)? Plus, the continent has a long and fascinating past so soak up the history as you experience it firsthand.

5. Get organised

Are you the King of Procrastination or the Queen of Disorder? Now’s the time to whip yourself into shape and get organised! Topdeck makes it easy to get your 2012 European adventure up and running. Pick the trip and date you want, book your flights and let Topdeck take care of making those pesky accommodation bookings and getting you from A to B and back again.

6. Get more exercise

Grab your walking, hiking or running shoes and get ready to explore! For the most epic stair climb ever have a go at the Eiffel Tower or St Peter’s Basilica. If getting out in the wild is more your style, make your way up the heights of Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland.

7. Lose weight

Put all the stuff you want to pack in a pile and half it! This will make getting around a lot easy and leave you with plenty of extra room in your luggage for souvenirs!

8. Step outside your comfort zone

What is life without adventure? It can be easy to stay safely within your comfort zone but it’s important to test the waters and challenge yourself! So tuck into a plate of escargot in France, throw yourself out of a plane for a sky dive in Switzerland and strike out on your own and make your way to Europe for a taste of big wide world.
