Resolve In 2014 To Boldly Go Where No Nomad Has Gone Before

Today's post is all about motivation. It's time to dust off the cobwebs of 2013, which, in my humble opinion, was one of the worst years in recent memory. So, get ready to take that trip you have always talked about. As the great Southern comic, Brother Dave Gardner, once said - You don't wanna' be sittin' on the front porch sayin' well I coulda'!

For our part, we are already in the planning stages for some big trips this year, Spain is on the horizon, with some side trips to Greece, Portugal and Normandy. And in the states, we have always wanted to do a western road trip. I think this might be the year. And, like the true vagabonds we are, there will be numerous side  trips to new and familiar places. One of the things I have come to really understand - trips with the kids - mine are both grown and live in different cities - makes everything better. We usually take at least one big trip together. And this year will be no different.

If You're A True Nomad - You Gotta' Go
So get busy - trash the resolution list with all the usual stuff - loose weight, run a marathon, eat less salt, blah, blah, blah. Instead, work on that bucket list, check out your favorite places to see before you die,  take that trip, go see that place or, if nothing else, take the ones you love to a new place. This blog has always been about roads less traveled and serendipitous happenings on the side. One of my new resolutions for this blog is to provide more ideas, more lists and more experiences for the serious vagabonds who refuse to settle. We are entering our third year of providing suggestions, personal experiences and bucket list options for "aesthetic vagabonds" everywhere.

It is my fervent hope that you and yours enjoy life to the fullest and find those places that change your head and your heart in 2014.

Happy New Year,
