2013: Year of the Traveller.

It is that time of year again; when we kiss goodbye to another year, write our resolutions down that only last for the month of January and promise that the next year will be better than the last.

Surprisingly for some, the world did not end. Yes, here we are and we continue to live our lives just as we had before. Most people will go back to their mundane and repetitive jobs after the new year, but not me.

If anything, 2012 gave me the fuel I needed to ignite my passion for travel. I realised that the world is a pretty big place and that if you don’t give yourself a little shove and go exploring then you are missing out on a world of opportunity.

An old family friend told me that I need to make myself a ‘Travel Bucket List’ with all the places I want to see before I leave this wonderful Earth. If you think about it, most people only take one holiday a year and if you are like me, you may find yourself with a long list of places to see. You better get to ticking some of those places off of the list.

I declare 2013 the ‘Year of the Traveller’. I will be travelling around Europe for nine months and seeing things I only see on travel shows. I am getting out there, seeing what the world has to offer, exploring fascinating cultures, meeting new people and immersing myself in everything that place has to offer.

I implore you to do the same. I am not saying you need to travel halfway around the world, just travel a little bit, even around your own country. You will be amazed with what places have to offer. Enjoy the little things, you shouldn’t have to spend a small fortune to have a good time.

Make memories that will last a lifetime and may 2013 open your eyes to some of the amazing places that the world has to offer.

Happy New Year!

  1. Hello!

    I always like to think that somehow through genetic transmission your marraine and I are Partly responsible for that “Bug”.

    Also when it comes to souvenirs you may wish to make your own something that your great-grandmother used to say regularly.

    You have to make as many souvenirs as possible when you are young because when you are old it is all that you have left!

    Love
