Many people choose “travel more” as their resolutions. Breaking up the day-to-day with a little change is good for the mind, and traveling can expose you to a whole new culture. However, after booking transportation, accommodation and activities (not to mention food and drink), this goal can turn quite expensive - and fast.
Instead, set your sights on something more attainable. It could be that park you always drive past on your way to work. Or that museum downtown you’ve been meaning to go to but just never have. Stop waiting, and go! Even in your own neighborhood, you can always find new surprises that are worth checking out.
