The year 2023 has finally arrived, and as usual, it's nudging many of us to form new year resolutions and adhere to them. Also, the last few years have taught us that life is short and fickle. This has undoubtedly changed our perspectives on what matters in life and, of course, to try out new things. Thus, for the globetrotters of the world looking to up their travel game, we have a list of some goals to add to your New Year resolutions list for this year.
Take A Solo Trip
If you frequently go on vacation with friends or a group, consider going alone in 2023. Nothing is more liberating than taking a solo trip, discovering your boundaries and pushing yourself. Embark on an epic journey, or start small and go away by yourself for a weekend. We promise that one week away by yourself will reveal more about you than several trips out with a friend. You will push yourself to make new friends and rely solely on yourself for everything.
Travel In A More Environmentally Friendly Way
We all want to travel the globe, but it is now more crucial than ever to preserve it for the coming generations. An excellent method to travel mindfully and contribute to the world is to reduce our carbon footprint. This can be accomplished by packing less to reduce fuel expenditures, travelling by public transportation, or staying in an eco-friendly lodging.
Learn A New Language
By studying the local tongue, you can prepare and anticipate your upcoming trip even while you aren't travelling. Many free apps can get you started on your path to leaving a lasting impression when you arrive. Knowing some actual words and phrases simplifies travelling, and native speakers will always appreciate your efforts.
Start A Travel Journal
Writing things down is a terrific way to keep track of all your trips and the incredible places you have been. The best alternative for you is to use a pen and paper. It's a lovely feeling to reflect on the year's highlights at its conclusion, and doing so will make you want to travel more in the coming year.
Make A Difference
When you travel, set a challenge for yourself to give back and see how gratifying it can be. While travelling, you may try a volunteer programme, assist with teaching young people, or organise or participate in a beach clean-up.
Visit A Less Explored Place
An excellent place to start might be Kosovo, Taiwan, Jeju Island, Guyana, Grenada, Trinidad & Tobago, or Svalbard. Even if you choose a well-known location like Italy or Maldives, visit local areas rather than tourist hotspots. In Italy, visit the nearby seaside town of Tropea, and in Maldives, visit the nearby island of Maafushi.
