It’s that time of year again. Time to begin a new year, make new resolutions, and forget about them a few weeks later. Well, I am sure some people actually stick to them. I’ve never been that big on New Year’s revolutions. Of course, what can you expect from a guy known as Scrooge at Christmas?
My own personal holiday antics and beliefs aside, what are your New Year’s resolutions for travel? Do you want to change something about the way you travel? Do you have something on your bucket list you want to accomplish? Do you want to use travel to make a difference in the world or make a resolution to travel more to ease some stress in your life? What is your top travel resolution for New Year’s 2011?
For me, it all starts with a challenge – and a lot of changes. As far as destinations, my one resolution is to get to Vancouver for TBEX (Travel Blogs Exchange – click to read more about it). However, the real change will come later in 2011.
My blog is going to change and I am going to launch a new site. Part of that change is due to a challenge (more on that challenge later this week). However, I have been slowly working on these changes for a couple of months. As for travel and my blog, I need more of a focus and a direction for where I am going. Sure, I will still be doing Travel Tuesday questions, Estonian love stories (OK, I might retire that idea), and my travel stories. I will still focus on family and budget travel. However, I want to make this blog much bigger than that, reaching a wider audience, and giving people more ideas, tips, and deals. For now, I am working on it and we will see what the results will be.
For me, challenge and a new direction are my travel resolutions for 2011. What do you have planned?
