Best Spring Destinations 2017

Maybe you are reading this blog post bundled up on your way to class or to work or maybe you are reading it after you have been shoving snow all morning. Or maybe winter is your favourite season and you hate me for talking about spring already *eyes roll*. In any case, while we are still in the middle of winter (sorry to remind you) and I had to pay a fortune on a new pair of winter boots *£15* (I could have just saved that for travel purposes you know) I will tell you something my friend.

Your Favorites. Best Travel Destinations of 2016

I decided to make it official: 2016 was an amazing year for Holiday on my Mind. The blog was launched on 7 September and it already reached over 4000 readers from across the globe – that means around 1000 views per month (if you are a blogger yourself you know this is a big deal for a new blog). It is an honor knowing that 4000 people chose to read MY blog when there are millions, millions of other travel blogs out there. I remember I felt drunk when I reached over 100 shares for the first time, when my Switzerland’s Top Christmas Markets blog post was repined 600 times, or when my Facbeook and Twitter pages got 1000 followers each. This wouldn’t have been possible without your help – yes the reader’s help because when you love writing, the only thing that will give you more satisfaction than writing itself is knowing that other people enjoy reading your work and find it helpful. Before I get too emotional, I would like to share my top 10 pieces of the year (judged after the amount of views they received). Continue reading “Your Favorites. Best Travel Destinations of 2016”
