'Budget Travel' staffers reveal their hopes for a new year of travels.

I resolve to have a real adventure. I'm dying to go the Galapagos, but am also incredibly tempted by the volcanoes in Ecuador.... I've been to a lot of cities in the past two years, so I'm trying to do something different. Then again, I've been fascinated by Moscow.... I'd also like to start making more of an effort to be green. Budget Travel created a wallet card that tells housekeepers there's no need to change the sheets. I'm going to use it on my next trip! --Erik Torkells, Editor
