I know what you’re thinking, we’re approaching the end of the first quarter of 2022, and she is posting her resolutions for the year. All I can say is, better late than never. I’ve saved it on my phone since 2021 was coming to an end and always planned to share it. I had reservations as I was so behind, but as I have crossed off many of these, it only makes sense to post before I publish content intending to check things off. Without further ado, here are my 2022 New Year’s travel resolutions.
One solo trip: I haven’t been on a solo trip since my 2019 visit to Southeast Asia. I seem to prioritize family and friend vacations. This year I will prioritize myself, my wants, and my mental health by traveling solo.
One new continent: Attempting not to give anything away, I am very close to visiting every continent. I plan to visit all within the next few years, so this will remain on my yearly resolutions until completed.
Two new states: I have visited more countries than states simply because of the cost. I plan to incorporate more in my travels, possibly including road trips.
Three new countries: I typically average six vacations a year to new countries. I have cut this number in half as time is restricted.
Continue working on my French: I studied French for too long not to be fluent in speaking, reading, writing, and understanding. My vocabulary is extensive. However, my pronunciation is awful. I will allocate time to taking more classes or actively practicing pronunciation.
Develop a consistent schedule for blog posts: Well, well, well. This one is self-explanatory. In my April update, I stated that I was moving to a new bi-weekly schedule. Although I’m posting this post on a Wednesday, I believe I will be posting every other Thursday.
Invest in good luggage pieces and accessories: This is an investment in organization and convenience. As luggage gets ruined in transit, it is not worth it (in my opinion) to purchase expensive pieces. However, I will be investing in affordable luggage with organizational components.
Pack lighter: Self-explanatory. I really should keep this on my yearly resolutions list.
