Travel Resolutions for 2009

My travel resolutions last year were sort of a mixed bag, but I have a feeling 2009 is going to be a year of more travel and more travel experiences.

I want to discover some new places, but I also want to revisit some spots to see how they’ve changed, or how I’ve changed and now see them differently.  So my resolutions are a combination of old and new, all with the goal of seeing the world one place and one experience at a time.

Here they are —

  1. Visit two new countries
  2. Visit two new states
  3. Re-visit five places that I’ve already been, but see and experience them differently
  4. Discover new restaurants, hotels, and resorts and share those experiences with you.

Keep reading this year, and you can help keep track of how I’m doing.

How about you?  What are your travel resolutions for 2009?
