That being said, what I have been doing the last few December’s is making a list of the places I’ve been that year and the places I’d like to go the following year. In 2009 I visited:
- the Bahamas, where I went in March for my friend Melissa’s bachelorette party.
- Las Vegas, which was two weeks later, at the end of March, for my friend Laura’s bachelorette party. Needless to say, 2009 was the Year of Weddings.
- Italy, in August, in what turned out to be the big trip of the year, and a much needed 10-day break from everything.
- Aspen, in October, with John and Miriam, where we (sort of) surprised John’s cousin Paul for his birthday.
I don’t want to be too presumptive about 2010, given that I don’t know where I’ll be on the financial end of things, but if I could dream up anywhere, it would be to go to Iceland and Spain. I’ve wanted to visit both places for years – particularly Iceland – so maybe a 4 or 5-day trip can be squeezed in there somehow.
And you? Where did you go in 2009 and what would be your dream trip(s) for 2010?
