Sharing My Personal Dreams of Travel
I’d like to share with you all one of my personal dreams that I’m aiming for within the next two years. The official date to start is January 1st, 2013. It came about when I was designing our new baby gift baskets, so the dream is to spend that year traveling to 12 different countries around the world, 1 per month. Having lived in the same city for a very long time I really would like to see other parts of the world. In fact, I’ve only left the United States once and that was when I was 2 years old – so I don’t remember anything of substance!
A lot of my inspiration to travel comes from Tim Ferriss (best-selling author of “The 4-Hour Work Week” & soon to be “The 4-Hour Body”). He spent years working only a handful of hours every week, outsourcing everything else, and spending his time traveling the world & doing all sorts of fun experiments. I love that lifestyle because time is our most valuable resource. Many people think money (which is important) but time is running out second by second, and when it’s gone… well, it’s gone. Although I love putting the finishing touches on food gift baskets corporate gifts or creating marketing strategies to show consumers that cheap gift baskets are a big no no, I’d also like some time to myself…
Here are some of the countries on my list for 2013:
- El Salvador – bars, museums, & beaches
- Germany – history, hedonism, & happiness
- Greece – beautiful, creative, & lots of fun
- Malaysia – affordable, culture driven, & interesting
- Morocco – exotic, classy, & hospitality
Do you have any dreams you’d like to share with me & the other readers? If so I’d love to hear about them!
