Recap fever has hit the travel and everyone is reflecting over the past year and looking forward. I really won’t recap too much because I just outlined my full RTW travel route (1) last week for you (route (2) and route (3)); those posts serve nicely as a highlight of my past year.
But this looking forward thing, now that I can get behind!
I’ve been holding out on you guys for the past week because my travel dates aren’t solid. But, well, the time has come: I am heading back on the road at the end of this month. I’m still holding out for a few more days on the precise details but let’s look at what this coming year will hold:
My 2010 Travel Plans and Dreams
- Travel south from Mexico down through Central America hitting every country I can safely navigate as a solo woman. While I traditionally don’t worry overly much about solo travel, I can honestly say that Central America has me a bit nervous…is that unfounded guys?! I just feel like it’s a different ball game down there right now than, say, solo travel in SEA…
- Meet a handful of fellow travelers and friends in Peru in late May to hike Machu Picchu.
- Head to the Napa wine country in Northern California for my best friend’s June wedding before hitting up Travel Blog Exchange conference in NYC.
- Backpack through Southeast Asia once again by fall for an undetermined length of time and no set plans.
Where is the Blog Heading?
- I’ll still fully share travel stories, videos, and advice throughout the year, so stick around…and even subscribe to my RSS feed so you don’t miss a single post (shameless plug, I know).
- Anticipate even more servicey posts aimed at helping other travelers prep for their trip – think reviews and guest bloggers sharing trips for eco-friendly travel and volunteering opportunities.
I am really excited for what this new year is going to hold – A Little Adrift has taken on a life of it’s own over the past year and I couldn’t do it without the support of the travel community and friends who contribute to the site, leave feedback and comments, and just generally make this blogging experience a whole lot more fun, so a very real and sincere thanks :-)
Cheers and Happy New Year guys!
