Before the first month of 2014 draws to a close, I wanted to revisit some of the best new year’s travel resolutions I’ve come across from other travelusters:
From T+L readers:
“Figure out how to travel near and far with my new carry-on: a baby!” —Kate Appleton
Near and dear to my heart, of course! At least after June 13 (my due date).
“Hoteliers, lock up your pens! I plan to start swiping the in-room writing implements, so that when I’m sitting in the old folks home writing letters (assuming paper still exists) I’ll have lots of great memories with each one.” —Kathryn O’Shea-Evans
I love this one! Creative and thoughtful.
“On my travel to-do list: Follow the country-blues-jazz trail with my musician son, from the clubs and roadhouses of Nashville and Memphis, to the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta, to the all-night jam sessions on Bourbon Street, New Orleans. Now that’s a hepcat holiday!” —Mark Orwoll
I want to go! There’s Nashville popping up yet again! Oh, and New Orleans, which I also home.
“Make more of an effort to meet locals and speak foreign languages.” —@wanderbliss
I think everyone should have this on their resolution list!
“In 2014, I plan to travel by plane/train/car to at least 1 place I’ve never been for at least 2 days, every month.” —@PTVagabond
This is a good one. I may borrow it…. Even if it’s to drive to a new city or state each month! Doable, right?
“#2014 #travel resolution: travel as much as possible to places I love & places I’ve never been, 1st trip #Nashville.” —@vinogger
Hahaha- Nashville is on trend! What can I say? Come visit me!
“Talk to hotel staff about where to go to experience the real culture of a town.” —@Simon_C71
Yea, Simon! That’s what I’m talking about! Skip the tourist traps and “live” like a local.
“To incorporate more of the outdoors into my travel, like hiking in New Zealand.” —@YasumatsuJaime
We should all take time to be in nature more. It heals the soul.
