Happy New Year! Bonne Année! ¡Feliz Año Nuevo!
People around the world are celebrating today. We’re wishing peace and prosperity to all and making promises to ourselves and others to do better and be better. Now is the time for New Year’s resolutions: to lose weight, meditate every day, spend less, save more, etc. There’s a whole new list of goals to accomplish this year and travel is at the top of mine.
For years I’ve been telling myself that I should travel more, but I never put any real action behind my declarations. The circumstances are never ideal; the timing is never right; I never have the money. I keep waiting on a perfect situation that never seems to come. The last time I left the country was 14 years ago, and that only happened once! Here in the U.S., I have only visited a handful of states. I can’t really go anywhere abroad even if I wanted to because my passport has been expired for over five years now! I need to do better!
I can easily sit back and make another promise to myself to explore more and see what the world has to offer, but we all know that promises without accountability are easily broken. So who’s going to hold me accountable??? You are!!! All of you who are just like me and tired of seeing the world only on a t.v. or computer screen. We are going to hold each other accountable and finally do what we have desired to do for years now. We want to see every inch of this planet up close and personal, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do! With each other’s help, we will stick to our promise of global exploration. There’s no better time than the present. It’s a new year and time for us to get in the car, train, plane, or cruise ship and see the beauty here in our country and everywhere around the globe. I Wanna See Some World and you’re coming with me! Allons-y! Our adventure awaits…
