I want 2023 to be the year that I look back and say, “I can’t believe I did that!” vs. “I wish I did that!”
Happy New Year! I am very excited to welcome 2023!
2022 was a year full of joy, adventure, and awakening. I took three international trips, two of them to new countries and both solo. I made new friends, experienced new things, said ‘yes’ more, and made my younger self very proud. I blossomed in 2022, and I’m only hope for the same or better in 2023. So to ensure that 2023 yields an equal or greater return on happiness, I’ve pushed and challenged myself by setting some pretty big travel resolutions for this year.
My New Year Travel Resolutions
- Complete the 12 Trips In 12 Months Challenge
- Visit 10 New Countries
- Visit 5 New States
- Say Yes More
- Be Adventurous and Open To New Opportunities As They Come
Checking Things Off The List
With a growing bucket list containing 62 activities, I’ve decided to step it up and challenge myself to check off 20 items this year. Here’s what I’d like to check off my Bucket List in 2023:
|1. Jet Ski||11. Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower|
|2. Take a Helicopter ride around NYC||12. Go Horseback Riding|
|3. Run a 5K||13. Go ATV’ing|
|4. Skinny Dip||14. Visit Kaieteur Falls|
|5. Stand under a waterfall||15. Celebrate Dia Los Muertos in Mexico|
|6. Have Afternoon Tea in London||16. Go Hiking|
|7. Zipline||17. Swim with sharks|

|9. Visit The Buckingham Palace||19. Do the Polar Bear Plunge at Coney Island ✔️ 01/01/2023|
|10. Ride the London Eye||20. Watch a Volcano Erupt|
Now I have to be honest; these new year’s travel resolutions and bucket list plans scare me, but I was always told, “if your goals don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough!” So I’m going all in!
Cheers to the New Year. I can’t wait to see where 2023 takes me!
