Make Your 2010 Travel Resolutions

January 7, 2010

Hello, and welcome back!

Actually, you may have been here all along – I’m the one who took a little break. It’s a new year though, new decade, and I for one am ready to jump start my life. I’m ready to set new goals, learn new skills, meet new people, and think and plan big.

So why not start with some resolutions? Really, I would only ask that you set one resolution: Travel.

That’s it. I’m not telling you where to travel or how or with who. Just resolve to do it. Start small, maybe camping for a weekend with friends or visiting your grandmother like you keep saying you will or checking out your first sci-fi convention.

The where and the when don’t really matter. What’s important is that you get out of your house, try something new, open your mind to new experiences and ways of life and open your address book (a real paper one or the one in your mobile) to the new friends you’ll make on the road.

If you like your goals to be a little more specific, how about one of these?

  • Travel green. Resolve to minimize your carbon footprint, clean up after yourself wherever you go (that includes the movie theatre), and support local businesses whenever possible.
  • Travel for good. Take part in a volunteer project in another country and do more than just sit on the beach and visit museums. Build a house, teach, farm, take part in people’s lives.
  • Travel for study. Don’t be a tourist, be a student. Plan a semester or summer abroad and see what campus life is like in another country.

I also resolve to provide you with inspiring travel ideas throughout the year, because there’s plenty to see and to out there.

Get moving!

  1. Hi, it is interesting to see the increase in demand and interest for study abroad, volunteer abroad, and intern abroad programs and this is why we created http://www.LinkToDiversity.com as an easy “guide” or “directory”, I would call it simply a program listing space for programs abroad. check it out, let us know what you think!
