  1. There’s always so much more to learn in our own backyard, I love exploring my New England area, but don’t do it nearly enough. You have some great plans on your agenda.It will be fun to come back next year at this time and see what actually transpired! I have a friend who recently traveled to Namibia and it looked so magical. Good luck with it all Sara, as for me, I am off to Columbia in two weeks and the rest of my year is in a state of flux.

      Thanks for that Alison…yes let’s see what transpires. Actually, I have a friend in Medellin who keeps saying I should visit, so Colombia’s on my long list for sure.

    The Eclipse sounds like a amazing experience! Hope you do get to visit the Hebrides, such a beautiful place (I’ve got my eye on some more Scottish islands for this year). Namibia is on my wishlist too (though maybe for 2018 after South Africa last year). So many places to see!

    • Sara Dobak says:

      I can vouch for the eclipse experience – really, truly it’s like nothing else. If you’re ever tempted, timeanddate.com/eclipse is a great planning resource, you can search for the next few eclipses and perhaps even plan a trip around one! Meanwhile…indeed…SO many places!! 🙂

  3. I’m not surprised you’re off to see the solar eclipse. Must be wonderful to witness. I’m determined to get to at least one dark sky area this year to try my hand at photographing the stars, namely the Trundle. It’s not exactly far (understatement of the year). And Namibia REALLY appeals.

    I’m starting off the year with two UK trips. I’ll be checking out more of the food and drink scene in Belfast and going ‘Game of Thrones’ crazy for a few days while capturing the stunning scenery. Then in February I’ll be celebrating my birthday in a cosy cottage in Dorset by the sea.

    Have a fabulous travel-filled year and we must organise a trip to the Trundle soon.

    • Sara Dobak says:

      Yes, I meant to say I’m waiting to hear back from someone about some possible astrophotography guidance, although knowing your skills you’ll get excellent results anyway! That Game of Thrones trip sounds intriguing 😉 I’ll get back to you on the Trundle trip…or another get-together of any sort!

  4. We’ve definitely got a few travel plans for 2017 in common – I too am determined to explore more of the UK this year and am kicking myself for missed opportunities to see what’s been under my nose. I also love dark sky places, I went to Jasper, Alberta, Canada which is an amazing dark sky preserve a few years ago for their star gazing festival and it was exceptionally memorable, I highly recommend it if you’re a serious star fan!

    • Sara Dobak says:

      Ahhh yes…stargazing festivals! I’ve heard of the Jasper one, and will add it to my list. These events are increasing in popularity it seems – last August I went to Solarsphere in Wales, a combined astro and music gathering – sadly we didn’t get the clear skies Jasper did, though.

    I didn’t know there was an eclipse this year! Hello southampton blogger, me too! There’s so much to see in England – we had some fab walks at Christmas near Lymington (Tanners Lane beach) and in Cornwall

    • Sara Dobak says:

      Didn’t know you were local to me Anna- cool! Lymington is pretty for sure…as is all of the New Forest. I’ll keep a look out for you!! 😉
