Happy New Year! I’m setting my 2021 goals and reminiscing on the places I’ve been able to see over the past couple years. I’ve only had a passport since 2017!! Before then, I literally had no want to go out of the US — and it’s crazy how much has changed since then. 26 countries in less than 4 years is pretty impressive, I’d say.
One of my 2021 goals is to write more blog posts on my website! I want to reach 25 blog posts by the end of 2021. That’s about 2 a month, which I think is pretty reasonable.
What do you guys want to read about? Finding cheap travel deals? Traveling safely during the pandemic? Tips for staying in hostels? Cruise ship tips? Let me know!!
Another one of my goals is to plan 5 trips for clients this year! If you don’t already know, I am so passionate about encouraging people of color to travel more. Yes, I know we are still in a pandemic, and I will do my part to ensure my clients travel safely. But, I believe that you can learn SO much about yourself and the world around you by traveling. Too many people of color from my hometown (Chicago, IL) have only seen Chicago and the surrounding areas. Many of my family member have never even been on a plane before and I want to change that. It’s not as expensive or as scary as people think, and I want to show my people that traveling is for them too!
My recurring goal (that might be reached this year) is to visit 30 countries before I turn 30! I’ll be 25 this year, and I only have 4 more countries to visit. I’m still trying to decide if I will increase my goal from 30 countries to 40 countries, idk yet - but will definitely let you guys know!
What are your travel goals for 2021? Let me know in the comments!
