Usually I’m dead against announcing too many of my plans or hopes or dreams too far in advance. I am certainly not a fan of trying to make a resolution that is going to be hard to keep and make me feel bad. You see, I’m a bit competitive…even with myself. Luckily, I think I can make an exception on never making New Year’s resolutions for this Boots n’ All Indie Travel Challenge, because, well, I will travel. It’s what I love and what I do.
Places I want to go this year:
Budapest to enjoy the thermal baths and take a ride on the Children’s Railway. This has been one of those destinations that, while relatively easy to get to, has alluded me.
Tajikistan. If I can just work out how to get a visa or more importantly the Letter of Invitation…I’m there. And yes, this might not sound all that creative, but hey, I think just the country is pretty darn unusual to visit…don’t you?
Naples, Italy, to visit my sister before she moves and I miss that one opportunity.
Barcelona, Spain, to eat tapas and gawk at the Sagrada Familia.
Things I’d like to do this year:
Take an afternoon sommelier course in Napa Valley.
Tour the White House and another part of the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C.
Buy some stools and maybe a cast iron bed in Cappadocia, Turkey.
Learn to cook/bake (?) a souffle…help!
How about you? Where would you like to go in 2012?
