I’m seriously excited about 2019! I want to make it larger and bolder for myself in terms of travel. 2018 was fairly breezy. I didn’t seek any location or travel program aggressively. It was the year of impromptu travel. Also, I found a new level of slow travel. This year, nonetheless, I want to pursue particular travel dreams. I want to tick off a couple of destinations.
So, 2019 is going to be a tiny aggressive travel year for me. That getting stated, I have a clean slate at the moment. I have no plans in spot.
Ahead of I speak about my travel ambitions for 2019, I’d like to highlight the exciting truth that the final couple of years have been so exclusive with respect to travel –
Purpose oriented 2015, spontaneous 2016
I was very objective oriented in 2015, and hence, I could travel to Kashmir, Gujarat and Karnataka that year. These have been all important trips for me. 2016 was completely spontaneous. But I ended up travelling to Italy and Jordan, two of my travel bucket-list nations! I also enjoyed a fantastic solo travel in Arunachal Pradesh that year.
A year of misadventures – 2017
2017 was a exceptional year in its personal way – I had a couple of misadventures in shop! I missed my flight to Melbourne at Kuala Lumpur airport, which created me see a entire new nation. So, it turned out to be a bonus. Yet another astounding aspect of the year was that I travelled back to back for a although – from Melbourne to Mumbai, Mumbai to Goa, Goa to Mumbai, and then Mumbai to Chennai. It was like I’d come dwelling only for a couple of hours and then head to the airport once again. Phew! But, it was exciting. 1 factor that pinches my heart even these days was the misadventure I had in Ladakh – I had to return dwelling inside two days as I fell sick badly.
An impromptu year: slow travel, revisits – 2018
2018 was very off the cuff all by means of the year. The only trip that I planned was Kerala, and even that a single was a second check out. I had no plans to commit 3 months in Chhattisgarh. I definitely had no notion I’d check out Uttarakhand! Also, I visited two national parks in Uttar Pradesh in the starting of the year, but even that was a press invite from UP Forest Division. I also had swift trips to Goa, Jaipur and Ajmer. I didn’t check out any ‘new’ location in 2018. Except for Jaipur, which was my initial check out, it was the year of revisits.
I surely want to carve out new adventures in 2019. If I appear at my bank balance I shouldn’t be dreaming huge. Yes, it is tough for a travel blogger/freelancer to execute huge travel plans. But, I know that I can do what I seriously want to do. I think if you have the courage, sincerity and concentrate to pursue your ambitions, funds catches up ultimately.

Go beyond borders
So far, I have focused on exploring India, which has been a fantastic choice simply because if you do not discover your personal nation, there’s no point going to far-flung locations. Apart from, India is such an astounding nation! I imply it is so complete of surprises. Even so, points will adjust in 2019. I have created a conscious choice to go international this year. If I’m not going to do it, then who’s going to do it for me? I am focused on ticking off a couple of extra dream destinations that are beyond my nation.
The fantastic news is that my tickets are booked for Sri Lanka in June. So, the momentum is set currently. I’m searching forward to booking extra tickets fairly quickly!
Tick off at least a single state in Northeast India
Apart from my overseas travel plans of 2019, I want to check out at least a single Northeast state in India. It could be Nagaland or perhaps Meghalaya. My point is that I want to tick off as lots of tricky destinations as attainable this year. Even though I do not want to tension also a lot more than “ticking off”, I want to be really precise with my travel plans. I imply I seriously do not want to go with the flow. I will operate towards reaching my ambitions no matter how intimidating they may well appear to me.
Continue to be smitten by my backyard
My concentrate will not be on quantity, which is the quantity of destinations I check out, but on good quality, the type of time I commit in every location. So of course, I’ll continue to discover my personal backyard, Mumbai and about. I assume living in a city like Mumbai is a type of blessing for a traveller. It is a single of the most effective cities in the globe. I have a lengthy association with Mumbai. I have explored very a lot about this city, but there’s nevertheless a lot to discover.
