It’s no secret, we at Sunny District LOVE to travel. Couldn’t have stressed that any more, could I?! We have an endless list of must-go places and we are going about checking them off one at a time. Early each year, we scout the calendar for long weekends and bank holidays attempting to max out on all available opportunities. We match the available dates with the places on our wishlist and look for the best match of dates against cheap flights. It’s worked out pretty well for us to plan & book ahead this way. For the last couple of years, I have been publishing a travel round up of all the places Mr.A and I visited during the year. Do you remember these? Go ahead, take a look 🙂

I’d love to hear about the amazing places you discovered this year! Have you been to any of the ones we visited? What did you think of them?

2014 has been a super year for Sunny District. It’s been fun & happening. I’ve been able to share some excellent experiences, travelling stories and cool experiments. Here’s a quick round-up of some of my most popular posts from the previous year, in no particular order. And along with it comes a big thank you & lots of hugs for my readers!
I started sharing a new ‘Adventure‘ category with my readers & you certainly liked my skydiving story.
I was lucky to travel to many awesome places like Kiruna, Mallorca, Copenhagen, Athens, Santorini, Madrid, Lisbon & Porto. Although I haven’t had a chance to share my accounts of all these lovely places, but you can click on the links to read about the ones I have. I guess you liked this recent bright mash-up most of all.
I gorged on some fantastic cuisines while on my trips; my trip to Madrid seems to have been most inspiring.
I didn’t exercise my green thumb too much this year, but my herb garden did draw some accolades from you. Thank you!
Thankfully I made time to keep up with my reading, and my favorite book this year, as well as your favorite account was The Book Thief.
Thank you once again, dear readers, 2014 has been so awesome, I am raring to go for 2015!!
As The Daily Post very wisely noted, the festivals around this time of the year tend to nearly ignore the color yellow. So here’s a round-up of some bright splashes of yellow… it quite suits the sunny name of my blog, right?
