Monster unleashed!

It’s that time of year again! That time of year when I unleash the monster that is 'Paranoid Solo Traveller' (PST!). There is a difference this time...and that difference is that I will not always be travelling solo this year.

I did wonder if I needed to change the name of my travel series but I decided against it as I am still that neurotic control freak and so it is with that in mind that I announce to you the 2014 travel reports that will be winging their way onto this merry blog of mine. I am hoping that if you are from or have been to these places then you may have some travel tips and advice for me, however I won’t accept the following advice: ‘Don’t go there!’.

The text in the square brackets like [this] indicate the type of travellers, this is important to remember because it will affect your travel plans and the type of experience that you will have and also exactly how much you will need to worry about and how much you can divide the preparation by. The sub lists indicate the individual blog posts that I anticipate will be posted in relation to that holiday, but they may not all appear in that order (as you should expect a few planning posts beforehand and some I can write now before I have even been) and the names may change. For example; all my US reviews are currently movie titles but after being to those places a more suitable name might occur to me.

  1. As someone who went to Disneyland Paris within the last few years, I would recommend Crush's Coaster if you like rides. If you don't like rides, what are you doing at a theme park? Also, if you go to Paris in the Winter, don't wear converse. The cold winds will go straight through them, especially if you're stood in line waiting for rides.

    Haven't seen you for ages. Nice to know you're not dead.

  2. Hehe. I'm not dead. The A to Z challenge didn't quite manage to kill me off! I was just on my non-blogger blog :) I did drop by yours and loved your theme. I did careers the first year I participated but I think you did a much better job! Room 101 I chose this year.
    I shall put your recommendation & advice in my little notebook :) thanks
