No flying, more drinking, new places: Your 2009 travel resolutions on Twitter

By | December 31st, 2008

What are your 2009 travel resolutions? I asked my friends on Twitter, and here’s what they had to say.

@DesertMama “My New years resolution is to not pay for any checked bags – whether it’s pay for an upgrade or carry on. Wish me luck.”

(Good luck.)

@soultravelers3 “Our travel resolution this year is to do slooow travel, relax & immerse deeply, travel green & eat healthy on our world tour!”

(Sounds like a plan.)

@Cajun_Mama “I really want to see the Aurora Borealis. Also taking a solo trip somewhere, like a mama walkabout. Destination unknown :)”

(The Aurora is awesome. Good resolution.)

@JoodyC “Good lord willin’ and the budget allows, I resolve to buy a fractional share of a plane so I don’t have to deal w/airports.”

(Are you kidding? If I had the money, I’d buy the whole plane!)

@sallymak26 “To explore more of our OWN country…especially now that gas is cheaper…hope to road trip at least two-three times in 2009!”

(I can already hear three little voices from the back of my car. Road trip! Road trip! Road trip!)

@caryt123 “i want to have multiple ‘mini’ vacations to destinations close to home. i may plan for a cruise too!”


(Good idea.)

@cestbest “I plan to fly less and not fly US Airways. There are better LCC options such as WN and B6.”

(I don’t think you are alone.)

@dmuth “My 2009 New Year’s Resolution is to drink more. :-)”

(I’ll drink to that.)

@karasw “Am turning 40 and celebrating 10th wedding anniversary=big year. Plane travel or new weekend destination every month!”

(So much for your “naycation.”)

@VisitNH “If you like to travel but funds are tight adventure locally. Visit a new city/town in your state for day trips or a long wknd”

(Ah, there we go.)

@chickefitz “No cruises with Mickey Mouse this year! I’m going back on Seabourne to the little ships for grownups!”

(Love Seabourne.)

@genochurch “to go back to Negril in 09. Booked :)”

(Who wouldn’t want to do that?)

@AnaLovesMusic “Travel Resolution: I want to see how many places/how far I can go without stepping on an airplane.”

(Yeah, you and everyone else in the country.)

So what are your 2009 travel resolutions? Leave a comment or follow me on Twitter and share your plans with everyone else.

Happy 2009!
