A friend sent me this today and it perfectly describes me. I get antsy when I have nothing booked or planned.
Right now, my next big trip across an ocean is booked. Barring another increase in tensions in the Middle East, I’m heading for Turkey in a few months. Istanbul has been on my list for years and there are so many other great things to see and do in the country. I can’t wait. It’s an organized tour, so there isn’t too much planning to do.
My question is what comes after that? As of now, I have several things I am thinking about, but nothing is set.
I know, wah, wah. Cry me a river. Trust me, I know I am lucky to be able to take more than one trip a year. It is my passion and I work to support my travel habit. I need to go places, see things, have experiences. Without them, I get bored and have FOMO when I look at what other people are doing.
I like to have one trip I am actively working on and one in the on-deck circle, so to speak.
How do you decide where to go next?
