Outside Pier 39 in SanFrancisco
Travel planning and me...Nah ? Somehow, that combination doesnt work together..2010 was an ample proof to that..Trips just happenned..I had no idea that I would be going to US, Singapore, Bali and Hongkong on the international front and Sikkim and Shimoga on the domestic front..I went to these places without a plan as well..experiencing the places as they are or going with the flow..In a way, I enjoyed the phase of travel . However 2010 had a lot of misses as well- case in point being December when almost 4 destinations were planned and none fell into place..It strengthens my belief that travel planning is not made for me..But having said that, destinations have been floating around in my head and I think 2011 will be on these lines
1. An international trip
2.A festival that I would like to attend
3. A cultural / heritage destination
5.A wildlife trip
6.A birding destination
6.A trip to my roots
7.Weekend getaways - ex Chennai/Bangalore - many :)
Having said that, this does not include last minute plans..so travel buddies, please call me when you are planning a trip ..And by the way, any sponsors out there listening ? I am also open to resort and destination reviews and am happy to blog/tweet/write and share on FB and other social media sites..
And a promise - I will update the blog as and when I finish a trip ..so while destinations 2010 can wait for a while, I will soon be posting on my latest birding trip in Thattekadu and Munnar ..
