There’s no doubt that the world has gotten smaller, and that taking holidays is easier now than it’s ever been, due to the greater service and smaller costs of the travel industry. But still, the word “travel” remains as romantic and exciting as it ever was, evoking that carefree, innocent and wide-eyed wonder you can only experience when seeing something or somewhere new for the first time.

These days, a lot of people save and take one big holiday per year, taking a long-haul flight and staying in all-inclusive resorts. It might be relaxing, but if you’re after a truly life-changing travel experience then you won’t find it in gated accommodation, so why not broaden your horizons with the 12 trips a year challenge?

It might seem impossible to take 12 trips a year if you work full time, but it really is very possible. Travel isn’t about miles driven, or distance covered, it’s about experiencing new ideas, cultures and ways of life and for that you don’t need to look too far.

The concept of the #Take12Trips challenge involves doing things you have always wanted to do, but never got round to, perhaps it involves a drive into the country, or a city break somewhere you’ve always fancied. Maybe you want to check out the backdrop of your favourite movie, or relive your childhood somewhere special to you, the choice is yours.

This month might have already begun, but there’s still plenty of time to take your first trip of the year and get involved in the #Take12Trips challenge.
How do you get involved? It’s easy, first of all head to the Need Another Holiday blog for more information, and The Travel Hack for some great planning tips. After that, simply choose your destinations, plan your trip and afterwards post a photo to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the #Take12Trips hashtag. It’s easy!

We are getting involved too, and will be suggesting a trip a month, packed full of things to see and do across Europe to inspire your travel plans throughout the year.

Bon voyage!
