Where are you planning on traveling to in 2013? Are you off to some exotic local where all you do for a week is lie on the beach with a fruity drink in your hand? Or maybe you are going on your dream European vacation where you try to see everything you can in the span of 10 days and come back exhausted but oh so happy? Maybe traveling is just something you do for work and never really get to enjoy any destination you are at. Some I'm sure are just planning their annual weekly vacation, same destination every year, where nothing really changes except the cost of getting there.
Of course travel is also a state of mind. You don't necessarily have to physically go anywhere to go somewhere if that makes any sense! I go places, through reading books and blogs, places I would otherwise never be able to travel to. To me this is a great way to travel if you are on a budget since you don't even have to leave the house. Heck, books don't cost anything either, with all the free downloads you can get. Plus let us not forget one of my favorite places to go, your local library. Just spending a few minutes day dreaming can transport you anywhere.
You can sit down and plan a dream trip. Get some destination books, map out things you want to see, research, follow favorite travel blogs, and search videos on You-tube. Who knows it may inspire you to find a way to make that dream come true someday.
So now I will ask again-where are you planning on traveling to in 2013? Either physically or mentally my advise is to go somewhere. It makes life a little easier to cope with day after day if you have somewhere to escape to if even by just turning pages of a book.
Please leave a commment and tell me where you are planning on going this year. Doesn't have to be any far away destination. I love to hear travel stories. If you travel solo, let me know the best places to go solo! I'm always looking for ideas!
