In 2016, I took an amazing trip to Japan, finally got to the Orkneys, hiked another of the National Trails and took a trip to the tropical Azores. I didn't actually cross off many things on my list, though, so next year I'm going to aim for an average of one per month again. I'm also going to try to fit in more learning and creative goals, not just all travel goals!

1. Visit Japan, in spring, to see the sakura (April and May)
2. Walk over a rope bridge across a ravine (April, the Iya Valley vine bridge, Shikoku, Japan)
3. Walk in a bamboo forest (April and May in Arashiyama, Japan and also 2013 in Vietnam)
4. Visit Sherwood Forest (September with Mum)
5. The Orkney Islands, including Skara Brae (September with Mum)
6. Abseil (November, canyoning in the Azores, abseiled down 10m and 20m waterfalls)
