Happy New Year!! I have been loving reading bloggers’ goals and resolutions for 2015. I am still trying to figure out my personal goals for the year. I feel like Christmas kind of takes over at the end of the year, and then I never really get to think about my goals for the upcoming year. So then I just don’t make any goals. This year I am going to just take an extra week or so into the year to really think about what I want to do in 2015. But one thing I do know right now is that I want to travel more in 2015! So, to start the year, I am joining Kelly, Emma and Rebecca, for their first link up of 2015 – Travel Wishlists for the year of adventures ahead.
My ultimate travel wish for this year is to not only visit and explore beautiful new places with Nick, but also to be able to visit with my family and friends who live all over the world.
Pretty soon I am headed back to New York to see my family and have a belated Christmas celebration. I would like to making visiting my home a priority this year because I love my family so much and it is really hard to be away from my them! I really want to go back to New York City and be a tourist, eat lots of delicious food and visit some of the sights that I have never gotten to see. Like, I have never been to the Statue of Liberty even though I lived in New York for 26 years. I have a great friend who lives in Washington, DC, and another that lives in Boston, so if I could somehow manage to plan a trip that encompassed both New York and a visit to my friends, I would be so happy. My family also had this tradition of visiting a resort in Pennsylvania called Woodloch Resort for many years and it’s my favorite place in the world to relax and recharge with my family. When I moved to Hawaii we sort of put it on hold for a while. There is always a hope/chance/prayer that we will get back there during one of my visits home. Here’s a picture of us there a couple of years ago:
Nick and I have a big trip planned for 2015 – a 16-day road trip throughout New Zealand. Nick and I have been obsessively planning out this trip for such a long time, and I can’t believe it’s finally happening this year! We are planning to go all over both islands, go hiking, see some mountains, eat some delicious food, and try a lot of wine.
Our New Zealand trip will be taking up a lot of Nick’s vacation time, so I am not sure how many other places we can travel to, but I am determined to somehow find a way to get back to to the Big Island, Hawaii. It’s so different from Oahu and we live so close — it seems crazy not to go back.
What’s on your wish list for 2015?
