Half Way Check Up on Our 2017 Travel Goals

I cannot believe we are at the end of June already. Isn’t this year flying?! I thought half way through the year would be a good time to check-in and see how we’re doing on our travel goals for 2017 from our post at the beginning of the year here. Setting goals and being accountable to them is the only way you begin to work towards achieving them. By visualising it, you put out into the universe and make it happen. Check out my vision board on Pinterest here, and comment below with your links! I’d love to see what’s on yours.

[bctt tweet=”Don’t go through life without goals. Here are my 2017 Travel Goals!” username=”theglobediary”]

# 1: A Beach Holiday

Check. √ A spontaneous trip to Mexico took care of this.

# 2: Somewhere New in Canada

Not yet, and no plans yet. Eeek. I feel like if we don’t achieve this goal, we are failing at travel life. We live in Canada, so it should not be that hard! But we do have plans to do Vancouver properly in August. But on my radar… Montreal or Toronto.

# 3: Go Camping 

Hmmm… why did I put this on my travel goals again? Any advice on a spot for a newbie camper, send it my way!

# 4: New York in the Fall

Still holding thumbs on this one! C’mon Universe! Make it happen!

# 5: Visit Home (South Africa)

Check. √ I went for a quick two-week visit in September after Greece, and will be returning again for Christmas! Even though I was really busy on the first trip, I did manage to explore a bit with a day trip through the Midlands and a perfect lunch on the terrace at the Oyster Box.

# 6: Go on a Safari

Currently brainstorming a spot.

# 7: Do London properly 

Postponed to 2018.

# 8: Stay in a Castle in Scotland/Wales

Postponed.

# 9: Los Angeles

Check. √ LA, you were fabulous. As expected. Check out the blog posts, here, here, and here.
