It’s the beginning of a new year, and a perfect time to start planning and dreaming of everything you want to fill the new year with; all the things you want to experience, places you want to visit and cultures you want to explore.
It’s a time to take a good look at your life and the direction you’re going, get back on the right track and finally do all the things you’ve dreamed of doing.
The other day we were sent this cool video by an independent project with a contest being sponsored by hotel.info - in the project they had interviewed people in London, Paris and Rome about travel.
They asked them questions such as “how would you ideally fill the book of your life with travel stories?” “what makes you feel alive whilst travelling?”.
It’s a great video and a good inspiration for those putting together their 2013 bucket lists.
In the contest you can win 10 nights in five European cities plus spending cash (€2,013) to fulfil those dreams!
Click here to join the competition – it ends on the 15th of Feb 2013!
So for all of you who make the excuse of not having the money to pay for your travels, here is your chance – and while you’re at it, make a goal for 2013 to stop making excuses
Here are some places on our travel bucket list for 2013:
Japan – While we really wanted to go to Japan last spring, after watching “Japan’s Wild Secrets” on National Geographic we want to go there more now than ever before. We are tempted to jump the gun and book our hotel in Tokyo for a week within the next year or so.
Israel – From skiing on Mount Hermon to swimming in the dead sea, Israel’s compact size has a huge variety and a vibrant culture. We would love to explore the diversity from the cosmopolitan party city Tel Aviv to the traditional country side.
Italy – Italy is home to some of the most beautiful places in Europe, we doubt that we will ever feel finished with this country. Sicily’s volcanic landscape, Tuscany’s purple fields and Cinque Terre’s cliff-clinging villages and rugged coastline are the places we most want to visit.
Morocco – Some hate it, others love it, but I say take it all with a pinch of salt. Morocco is an interesting country, and the blue town Chefchaouen would be awesome to see.
Iceland – Few places are as diverse and beautiful as Iceland, and we have been wanting to go there for a long time.
What’s on your travel bucket list for this year?
