Throughout the month of December, I’ll be participating in #reverb12: celebrating the successes of 2012, honoring the challenges of 2012, and planting the seeds for a rich and rewarding 2013. December is the perfect time to reflect on the year that has passed and start to manifest dreams for the new year.
Day 5 – What was your dream destination in 2012 and why?
It can be a town, city, country or region — real or imaginary — and doesn’t matter if you actually got there or not!
It’s interesting to get another question relating to travel (I related this #reverb12 post to travel the other day). I’m going to take this as a sign from the universe that I need to pack some bags and head somewhere soon.
I’m sad to say that travel hasn’t been on the forefront of my mind lately, mostly because of budget restrictions. I know that if I gave up some of my everyday luxuries, like my ridiculous cable bill, I could put that money toward a fabulous trip. But the thing is, I enjoy my t.v. shows and movies too much to give them up. It really is all about priorities.
Let’s pretend for a moment that I did have that $1700 to spend on a trip. My first choice would be to go to Maui, Hawaii. I’ve never been before, but every photograph I see of the island makes me long to soak up some of the slower island lifestyle along with the sun’s rays.
On a trip to Maui, I’d love to:
- take surfing lessons
- go on a zipline
- attend a luau
- take hula dancing classes on the beach (I do it here, why not there?)
- enjoy the best sushi this side of Japan
- read countless books while on the beach, sun bathing
- enjoy morning yoga overlooking the ocean
- see a live volcano from a helicopter
- daily strolls along black sand beaches
I like the idea of a vacation where the main focus is on relaxing, but that also allows me to accomplish items on my Fitness Bucket List, too.
I may not have made it to Maui in 2012, but it will be in my sights for summer 2014, if not sooner.
