Here’s a fact for you: making lists makes me happy. Making a list that involves travel? Well that just makes me absolutely giddy! (smile) While I don’t normally make resolutions/share goals for the year, travel is the one exception. I really enjoyed checking off the 2015 list, so I’ve decided to have another go with 2016.
I did really well with my travel goals for 2015. There was only one location that I didn’t get to – South Dakota – so I’m just moving it to 2016. Otherwise I had a great time exploring Arizona, visiting friends in Louisiana, and spending time with family in Ohio. Morocco…well, Morocco was beyond anything I could’ve hoped for, so I’d say that was a success as well! (smile)
Arizona: I intend to make this the year of completing my Arizona Must See List. I checked a couple locations off this year (including Havasupai Falls) but I still have a few left (and perhaps a new one as well…) including Yuma, Grand Falls (aka Chocolate Falls), the slot canyons (e.g., Antelope Canyon), and Horseshoe Bend.
New Mexico: I’ve been to New Mexico a few times before, but I really want to visit Santa Fe and the White Sands National Monument. Both are a reasonable drive so no more excuses!
California: I would really like to spend more time with my friends in California this year. My niece is growing so fast – I want to be around for more of those special moments. I’m also determined to make this the year I visit San Francisco. It’s overdue.
South Dakota: I didn’t make it there in 2015 due to logistical challenges, but it’s happening this year! I’ve gone on and on about it so much that I now have volunteers to join me – maybe waiting wasn’t so bad after all…
Well, much like last year this one’s still to be determined. I have
three four options in mind and only one of those is readily accessible and/or relatively safe. So of course it’s at the bottom of my list. (smile) I would love to reunite with a few of my fellow Morocco travelers, but we’ll see how that goes. No matter where I end up this year, I’m looking forward to the adventure and to meeting new people!
Where are you going this year??
