So as I said before, I didn't make any resolutions. I have plans, see. I'm shakin' off the dust of this crummy little town and I'm gonna see the world. Or at least a small piece of it.
Each year, hubby and I try to take a trip somewhere we have never been, then take off with the kids somewhere fun. We've seen some amazing sights, done some fun things and, despite our very different attitudes toward travel, we generally have a good time. In the past few years we've been to some exciting places. I'm hoping this year will bring even more memorable experiences.
Travel is one of those great things that can be done at a moments notice, or after months of planning. It can mean saving up for a year, or taking off with five bucks in your pocket. I guess it all depends on how broadly you define travel, but some of the best adventures are just outside your front yard.
Take Fogo Island, for example. This year it was number 22 on the New York Times list of places to see in 2011.You've read, or seen, bits of Fogo Island - here, here, here, and here, plus in a few other photos I've posted around this place. With the exception of my own hometown, it is my favourite place on earth. Definitely a place you should visit in 2011. I'll give you the grand tour.
Of course, I'm always looking for new places to visit. Tell me about your favourite place to go, or your most memorable trip.
