Past Travels



Around The World In 18 Years went live in 2017 but our family travel blog didn’t officially launch until 2018.  Although we didn’t do much in the way of travel in 2017, we did visit a few of our local tourist attractions, new cafe’s and we also threw in the odd European trip.

Our 2018 travels will be a little different as we will concentrate on visiting a few of our favourite destinations in Italy.  But for now, we’ve detailed the places we visited in 2017.  Go on, take a look, and remember to JOIN OUR ADVENTURES by subscribing, that way you’ll never miss another post from our FUTURE TRAVELS.

Ladies and Gentlemen, without further ado…our 2017 travels in brief!

A mainly uneventful year, and in all honesty, we certainly didn’t think we’d be writing about our travels for all the world to see.  2018 will be the true ‘beginning’ for Around The World In 18 Years so please do come back and join us as we travel | adventure | dream our way around God’s beautiful kingdom that is Earth.
