How many Flights did you have in 2017?

Hi lovelies,

first of all I wanna wish you a Happy New Year! I really hope that all of your dreams will come true this year 🙂 Thank you so much for being such amazing readers! I’m already looking forward to sharing 2018 with you 🙂

The year 2017 was a very impressive year for me and also the year where I could tick off many destinations from my bucket list (such as Bora Bora or Positano). Last year my blog post where I revealed how many flights I had in 2016 (you can read it here) was so popular that I of course wanted to pusblish a similar one for 2017. Do you believe I was able to top the amount of flights from the year before? 😉

So this year I had 120 flights. That is kinda a crazy amount and I can hardly believe I really flew that much last year 😀 However, next year my boyfriend and I plan on traveling less than that. Even though we really enjoy traveling and it’s also our job, being away that much can also be quite exhausting. Thus, we will try to cut back a bit and focus more on some (professional and personal) projects 🙂

Since half a year we’ve been living in Malta which is such a pretty place especially in spring, summer and fall time (you can read my blog post about moving to Malta here). Even though we are super thankful for all the possibilities to explore the world we will definitely try to spend more time at home (with our friends and families) this year 🙂

Which one of mine or our pics from 2017 did you like best btw? 🙂

Wishing you an amazing year 2018!

    Hey Madeleine! 🙂 Your blog is cool n all, but for me the popularity of this kind of posts is a bit schocking. What about the environmental angle of flying? I remember when I was like 19 and flying to places was cool and something to brag about, but in 2018 it shouldn’t be, considering the given information about the harms of this kind of lifestyle and the current state of our globe.

    I also love travelling and am curious about getting to know new places, but I do it with the understanding of the consequences of my actions, and therefore go only a couple of times a year. I’ve been an expat since six years so I as well understand that going to visit family also requires flying.

    As a blogger you may surely have some work related flying, but as a popular blogger you should also consider, what is it that you’re trending and what kind of lifestyle you want to make yonger girls to get influenced by.

    Take it as a constructive criticism, was not meant in a mean way! Use the power of your blog for good 😉

      Hi dear!
      First of all I’m not bragging about it!! Why would you even think so?!
      As I wrote very clearly this much flying is very stressful and not much fun at all. And of course I also think of the enviroment!! But my boyfriend and I NEVER travel just for pleasure anymore. We either fly to visit our families (since we live on an island there is no other way from Malta to get to Germany besides flying) or we fly to work. Both of us live from travel blogging so if we stopped flying we didn’t have a job anymore! And I think by doing our work we make a lot of people happy 😉
      I hope you get my point 🙂
