Travel as a New Year's Resolution
There is so much to see and do and dream vacations are touted everywhere, newspapers, enticing ads, videos, books and the travel channels, among many others. But how do you really know that this is the right vacation for you?
I feel that vacations are not a luxury. To me they provide fuel - a way to reenergize and regroup. When we get busy in our lives, we often miss the good that is right in front of us.
Here are some things to consider when planning your trip in the new year:
Determine exactly why you are going. Is it to relax and destress? Is it to meet new people? Is it to enjoy your family? Is it to see a new place? Is it to visit friends/family? Next, decide what is important to you. Is it good food, fine dinning, outdoor activities, entertainment, quiet time, beautiful scenery, the arts, sports, or a combination of the above?
From your list, choose your non-negotiables, which are the things you must have in order for your trip to bring you what you need and want. Even if there are some inconveniences and compromises on the trip, choose things to do that will compensate for what you don't like.If you love outdoor activities, do something everyday. If you love fine dinning, find special restaurants to suit your palate. If you love culture and the arts, seek out plays, theaters and museums.
Above all, do your research. Call and ask all of your questions. The answer to just one of your questions could make the difference between a positive and negative experience.
Search for hidden gems as they are usually not crowded or as harried as their commercial counterparts. Robert Frost the great American Poet wrote, "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference." So look for the "road" that suits you and don't compromise on your values. If you do that when you plan your travels, you will travel the road that makes all the difference for you.
