Travel plans: where to, when and how

Travel plans: where to, when and how

Well, hello there.

Long time, no see.

I know, I’ve been missing off here for a while. Life and all that. No excuse. Sorry.

But hey – here I am, back with you full of plans, BIG plans.

It’s the start of a new year (I know, stating the obvious) and here I am still harbouring that travel bug and still with lots of ideas for travel in the future, and I mean LOTS of ideas. I’m intending to live to at least 100 (in perfect health) to get to all those places on my list.

It’s that time of year again when we’re all prone to reflection, reflecting on the year just gone, our achievements, what we’ve done, what we haven’t and where the last year has taken us. And we also look ahead to the next 12 months, to our dreams, our plans and to where we want to be this time next year. But so many of us stop right here, we stop at the dreams and the desires and the airy fairy ideas of what we want out of this year. We go no further – and then we complain.

Well, that year didn’t go according to plan, I didn’t get what I wanted out of it, I didn’t move forward to where I wanted to be.

I wonder why? Possibly because you just said you wanted it to happen but you didn’t do anything about it, you didn’t set a goal, you didn’t take positive action to make that goal a reality.

I’ve been talking a lot lately about planning and goal setting and making shit happen because without goals we’re never gong to get anywhere. We need to set a goal, make a plan and make it happen.

And so I have with my travel aspirations.Adventure

Now my next big trip is intended to be a BIG trip, so it’s going to take time to plan and finance this BIG trip.

But I’ve set my goal:

In May 2018 I’m going to walk the length of Hadrian’s Wall in the UK!

 And that’s not all:

I’m going to be away for 3 months, I’m going to do other walks including at least one

in the Lake District

and I’m going to hold workshops while I’m over there.

I’m also meeting up with a friend in Paris and spending at least 2 weeks there.

I’ve set my goal, I’ve written it down, I’ve got my vision board up in my office and I’m researching the where, the what and the how’s the hell out of it.

It’s not enough to set a goal you need to make it happen and this goal is going to happen.

What goals have you set for the coming year, what are you going to achieve? Any travel plans out there?

If you need any help with goal setting and focusing and clarifying your direction – literally and metaphorically, then pop over to my business website www.infinitehorizons.com.au to see how I can help.

I’d love to chat to you sometime, get in touch

  1. I agree Pam, we are looking at Kilimanjaro in Oct. When you come to UK a visit North would be welcome :)

    • Good luck with Kilimanjaro Gail, it’s something I would like to tackle but this October wouldn’t work for me. Where abouts in Scotland are you? I plan to walk Hadrian’s Wall and also visit Edinburgh and other parts of Scotland too. Hopefully we can catch up :-).
