Autumn escapes and future travel plans

St-Guilhem-le-desert

September is a great time to travel in Europe. I love the autumn colours and the crowds have thinned out enough to make wandering through a new city enjoyable again. This month I’m off to Tuscany for four days to celebrate my birthday with delicious ice-cream, a stay in a spa town and visits to Florence, Lucca and maybe Siena.

It’s also the time I start wondering about trips for next year. There’s still a few travel dreams which are high on my list; the Silk Road, Borobudur in Indonesia, maybe SE Asia. Guatemala really intrigues me after nearly visiting this year – volcanoes and Mayan temples in the jungle sound right up my street.

Are you already planning your travels for 2014? Share your plans (and any tips for Italy) below!

The picture above is from a trip I took a few years ago in September to Languedoc in the South of France. As you can see the weather was still beautiful!
