How did you travel in 2016? How and/or where would you like to travel next year?
In 2015, I went to Brazil for a conference, multiple work trips, and a midwest trip. In 2014, I went on multiple weekend trips, increased business trips, and found a destination for ice cream and writing. In 2013, I finished off the bulk of the travel for the Ice Cream Travel Guide. In 2012, I started the journey of a life and went to what I thought was unfathomable (in my life) — six domestic destinations and eight international destinations — for professional and personal reasons. In 2011, I went on one international trip, one domestic…and one super local. In 2010, I went on one international trip and multiple domestic trips.
In 2016, I traveled to:
No trip to Italy. No trip to Seattle/Portland. No visit around the United States for a book tour. So it was less than anticipated.
Next year, I hope that there will be a work-related trip, perhaps to New York. But there’s a trip to Phoenix for my friend’s wedding. Then a trip to LA in April for a writing conference. Then a side trip to Big Sur for the writing workshop with Cheryl Strayed et. al! I am not sure what trips are planned for the rest of the year, but I would have to be convinced. Perhaps New York? I hope. Perhaps somewhere where I could use my points? I don’t know!
