The year is 2019, robot servants called Alexa and Siri are answering our every command, Brexit is confusing the hell out of everyone and nobody really understands what’s going on. Everyone is hoping that Summer 2019 will be just as hot and careless as the few weeks of the World Cup last year.
Whilst there won’t be a Summer World Cup for quite a while, the idea of baking in the sun isn’t quite as impossible. We’re all aware that Brexit may impact future trip costs, so it’s time to take full advantage of Summer deals before the effects of uncertainty take place.
There are plenty of places to travel to in 2019, with Ryanair’s £5 flights still in full tow, here’s some travel inspo to find something to suit your holiday wishes.
