Take 12 Trips – The Round Up!

Regular readers of the All Aboard blog will be familiar with the Take 12 Trips challenge. For those who don’t know, the Take 12 Trips challenge is an initiative which encourages wannabe explorers to take a trip every month for a whole year.

The trips don’t necessarily have to be abroad, you don’t even have to leave your city! Your trip can be as wild as an all-inclusive jaunt to the Bahamas, or as simple as visiting a local landmark, the important thing is that you take 12 trips in a year.

Since January we’ve been providing ideas and suggestions for you, here’s a round-up of them all…

Holland's Gems

A country which packs incredible history and culture into such a small area, Holland is the perfect destination for your first trip. Read our guide to the country’s best cities and destinations outside of Amsterdam.

Belgian Bites

Chocolate, chips, beer and more. Belgium is in a league of its own when it comes to gastronomical treats. If you’re planning a gourmet getaway as one of your 12 trips then look no further than the home of all things boozy, sweet and delicious.

Germany's Magic Cities

Germany is home to 10 fantastic cities, dubbed “Magic Cities” by the tourist board, which attract millions of visitors from all over the world each year. Learn about the international history of Hamburg, the self-styled Gateway to the World, or Cologne’s famous architecture, or Leipzig’s student-led nightlife.

Euro 2016 Host Cities

If you’re an English customer then we’ll understand if you’d rather forget Euro 2016, I know I would! But last summer’s tournament was hosted by a number of fantastic French cities, and that gave us an excuse to take a closer look at them.

Chateaux of the Loire

France houses some absolutely magnificent chateaux, castles and palaces throughout the country, however some of the best available are in the Loire Valley. We gave you a quick run through some of our favourites here, so if you’re planning a trip then why not combine it with a chateaux visit?
