I have never quite understood the concept of New Year’s Resolutions. I can assure you, it is not for the lack of trying. I have sworn to give up chocolate, shop less, be kinder, get fitter…etc. all to no avail. Somehow, the idea of declaring my vices and publicly committing to a year of betterment has always seemed like a daunting responsibility all too often ending in guilt – especially considering that most resolutions are doomed to failure within weeks of their inception (because seriously, who actually gives up chocolate?). This year I have put a stop to the New Year’s Resolution Conundrum! Rather than declaring my vices and swearing to improve them, I have created another list that I actually want to stick to: the Travel Resolution – a listing of my top four places I intend to see this year in ranked order.
- Paris, France
- Marseilles, France (Provence)
- Portland, Oregon
- Seattle, Washington
Pictures and stories of my travels to follow! I’m fairly certain that this is one of my better ideas – 2012 is already looking like more fun than 2011…
