New Year, New Adventures

Andrea here who returned just days before Christmas from giving myself the early present of taking one of my top “bucket list” trips: an odyssey through the Greek islands. More on the fabulous details in an upcoming blog (pictured at left are the fabulous hilltop monasteries of Meteora) But as the new year dawns, it got me to thinking of how I want to do even more traveling in the coming year. Seeing new things, experiencing different cultures, getting to appreciate in person the great historic treasures of world history is inspiring in so many ways. It’s easy to keep putting things off—I’m too busy . . . I’ll do it next year . . . packing is a pain . . . the litany of excuses is legion. But losing several friends in the last year way too early in life was for me a real reminder to carpe diem. I have a wish list, and am determined to keep working through it.

What about you? Do you love to travel and are there places you yearn to visit? Do you have a bucket list, and if so, what’s #1 on it?
