It’s December 20th. I’m preparing for the end of the world tomorrow. I’ve crossed ‘Visit the Mayan Ruins’ off my bucket list and have R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” ready to play on my CD player. I’m preparing a very fattening last meal AND dessert. No more need to diet, right? I guess I’m all set.
Or was there something else I wanted to do? Hhhm. Oh yes. I thought I’d take a moment to recap a few of my favorite travel moments of 2012 and tell you where I might have gone in 2013 if only we had more time.
I loved sitting in a tiny attic theater in Brussels, watching a marionette show of Hamlet, despite the fact that I didn’t understand a word. I may drag my family there if we’re ever in Brussels again.
A silly as it sounds, square dancing at a park in Kentucky was my favorite date with husband this year.
Sipping a Singapore Sling as I gazed at the skyline was pretty incredible.
Closer to home, I spent a fabulous day with my family wandering around Cincinnati and looking at all the pigs.
I haven’t made many travel plans yet for 2013. I mean, why go to all that trouble when the Mayans say not to, right? But in case they’re wrong, we’re heading to Gatlinburg, Tennessee to ring in the new year. Then in February, I’ll travel to Brussels again on business. No doubt I’ll extend that trip a few days and see some other sights. Disneyworld is on the table as a destination this spring. China again in May, I believe.
That’s as far as I’ve gotten. It’s not as easy to plan my travel for 2013 as one might think because there are SO MANY places I want to go. But we’ll start with Gatlinburg, ya’ll, and go from there.
What are your plans for 2013?
