2012 New Year’s Resolutions – Indie Travel Challenge #1

Usually I’m dead against announcing too many of my plans or hopes or dreams too far in advance.  I am certainly not a fan of trying to make a resolution that is going to be hard to keep and make me feel bad.  You see, I’m a bit competitive…even with myself.  Luckily, I think I can make an exception on never making New Year’s resolutions for this Boots n’ All Indie Travel Challenge, because, well, I will travel.   It’s what I love and what I do.

 

Places I want to go this year:

Budapest to enjoy the thermal baths and take a ride on the Children’s Railway.  This has been one of those destinations that, while relatively easy to get to, has alluded me.

Tajikistan.  If I can just work out how to get a visa or more importantly the Letter of Invitation…I’m there.  And yes, this might not sound all that creative, but hey, I think just the country is pretty darn unusual to visit…don’t you?

Naples, Italy, to visit my sister before she moves and I miss that one opportunity.

Barcelona, Spain, to eat tapas and gawk at the Sagrada Familia.

Things I’d like to do this year:

Take an afternoon sommelier course in Napa Valley.

Tour the White House and another part of the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C.

Buy some stools and maybe a cast iron bed in Cappadocia, Turkey.

Learn to cook/bake (?) a souffle…help!

How about you?  Where would you like to go in 2012?
