Y'all are the most interesting travelers we've ever heard of. When we asked you about your travel resolutions for the New Year, more than 70 of you posted comments sharing your plans.
The winner of the most ambitious travel schedule is Pat:
Jan -- India
April—Canada -train to Halifax
May—last cruise on the QEII to Med.
June, July, August—time off
Sept—train to Canada west coast and cruise west coast and thru Panama Canal to Miami
Nov and Dec—more time off
And the most inspiring trip plan we came across might be Sarah's:
We're heading to Mongolia for the Nadaam Festival of the Manly Arts (wrestling, archery, and horseracing) in July. We'll spend 17 days traveling to Ulann Bataar, the Gobi Desert, Lake Hovsgol and to see the games in Moran where we'll meet the wrestlers in person. Hope to ride a camel, a yak cart, a Mongolian pony and a reindeer before it is all over!
Then again, it might be Jessie's:
Headed for the Adriatic in late May—trying to stretch my dollars: Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina (small group trip). Fall will be a trip to Norway or Egypt, leaning toward either trip on my own. Although in my 70's, still traveling as much as I can afford.
Here are some other trip plans that are wonderfully creative:
