The Christmas frenzy is now over and I love looking forward to a fresh new year full of possibilities.
To get yourself dreaming for the year ahead, check out today’s Ottawa Citizen‘s Travel Section (print). Laura Robin, the paper’s Travel Editor, does an annual roundup of “best lists” — 250 of the best places to stay, cities to see and finds worth finding.
In the past, I’ve contributed “5 best men’s rooms with a view“ (don’t ask me how I know about these!) and “5 best wine touring regions in Australia“ (I like my Australian wine almost as much as I like my Australian “flat white” coffees!).
I am so happy to once again be a contributor. This year has really opened up my heart to blogs and blogging and I’ve contributed a piece titled “5 best travel blogs,” each of which you can now easily access via my blogroll lists on the bottom right-hand column of this blog.
A second list that appears in the paper today is “5 best girlfriend getaways” These are no traditional “spa & shopping” affairs, but truly unique experiences to share with the special girlfriends in your life. If I manage to do all 5 of these getaways before I die, I will die a happy woman.
But come to think of it … you could do any of these trips with your guy friends, boyfriend, partner, or spouse and they would be just as amazing! So I’m already thinking ahead to a family summer vacation at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort. Here is a photo of one of the canyons:
What dreams and plans do you have for 2010?
