I love the potential and promise that comes with each new year. You know, before you’ve had time to mess things up with laziness and bad decisions.
So before atrophy takes over and you end up parked in front of the couch, make your travel goals now. Where are you going in 2015? How are you going to get there? Not just physically, but mentally and financially.
No matter what your financial, geographical or personal situation, there is some way you can incorporate more travel into your life. So, I wrote you a guide.
Or rather, a compilation of the many resources already on this site. This is a re-tooling of a post I wrote back in 2013. Since then there have been many new articles, and many new readers, so it seemed time to print a new syllabus for you guys on how to make this your Year of Travel.
