Keeping Your 5 top travel Resolutions Alive
New Year is coming. And if like us, you need to plan your adventures in advance, then it’s time to bring in those resolutions to help make your travel dreams a reality.
If you’ve long held travel ambitions or just want to experience the world through the eyes of the traveller and not those of a tourist, read on: our top travel resolutions will help.
Yes, it’s what we all want to do: throw off the chains of work and get out into the world. There are untold mysteries to unfold, and roads less travelled to wander. This year I will travel more.
Learn a language
Pick a country that you love, plan a visit, but this time take the time to pick up the language: There’s nothing better than being able to talk with your hosts without feeling like some colonial buffoon forced to revert to the “you speeeek Engleeesh” lines.
Take better travel pictures
This time I will return with half-decent travel pictures: Enough wasted opportunities; I’m getting a better camera and learning how to use it. Have a look at our travel photo-tips for a few pointers.
Read great travel books
I will learn more: Dump the average tour brochures and dig out the best travel writers; there are some really good examples online as well as print.
Take the time…
No more rushing between tourist hot spots, I’m taking the time to enjoy my trip: If it means just sitting and watching the world go by, do it. You’ll return an altogether different traveller. Become infused with culture, not a collector of it.
