Travelling New Year's Resolution

We survived 2020, turned the page, and here were are in 2021.  It is the time of year where some of us like to set our New Year's resolutions.  If we likened the year to age, your 20's are some of the most adventurous years of your life, so why not set travel resolutions for fun!

Make the most of your weekends!  The weekends are for you, so don't waste them.  Gather your friends, family, or even go on a road trip solo.  Book in overnight accommodation in a location you have never visited before.  There are so many options within your own backyard and if you have some extra savings, pop on a flight and visit your neighbours in another state or territory.   Make a little list before you go of all the restaurants, bars and attractions you wish to experience.   You will come back feeling revived and full of life!

If you need a little extra cash before you start spending, start a travel savings account.  Have a goal in mind and make a contribution to it each pay week.  Make your dream a reality by taking the necessary steps to achieve your goals.   Paris, Tokyo, London, Spain..............2022 here we come.

If you are a full-time worker you receive 4 weeks annual leave a year.   Make it your resolution to USE IT!!!!  Use it all in one go, maybe take a week each quarter, but make sure whatever you do, you take time to go out and explore.

Do you like to pack everything but the kitchen sink when you go away?  Challenge yourself to pack lighter.   Do you really need to pack all those shoes?  Could you leave a few pairs at home? Instead of packing all your toiletries make use of the hotel amenities.    We think you will be pleasantly surprised by what you don't need.

If you like to spend time in the kitchen and experiment, have you considered cooking dishes from around the world?  Until we can venture across international waters again, why not pick a couple of international cuisines and put your culinary skills to the test.   Host a dinner party with friends so they can be your taste testers.

Have you always wanted to learn a new language?  Well, this is your year!  There are so many great apps you can download on your phone that are easy to use on the go.   We recommend DuoLingo.

If you travel for business, try to incorporate more leisure time outside of office hours.  Explore the city your in.  Go out for a meal, see a show, invite your colleagues to give you a tour or take you to their favourite bar.   There is always the option to extend your stay for a night or two so you can be a tourist and unwind.

Whatever your New Year's resolutions might be, have fun with them.
