“2017 travel goals”

2 min read

It’s the perfect time to take stock of 2016 as well as plan for 2017 and all in all, there is so much to be thankful for, and so much to look forward to as well.

First off, I’m definitely thankful that Khukyenda was born. Three months, thirteen blog posts and a Facebook page later, I’m glad this blog is in existence. What started out of sheer curiosity and boredom has begun to open doors and create opportunities for me to develop one of my great passions, as well as meet and interact more with like minded people (that would be you) and the best part – have an awesome time! Khukyenda is looking forward to so much this year, and I’ve jotted just three 2017 travel goals below.

Solo travel – I can’t believe I’ve never really done this. I’ve been on several flights solo but I’ve never actually taken a trip or booked a holiday to be enjoyed unaccompanied. It’s not something I plan to do often as I do love the company of the people I care about, or people that care about what I care about (and I look forward to more of those too). However, I trust that there is something to be enjoyed and appreciated when traveling on your own schedule. It’s scary…but fascinating.

The lessons – I believe we learn a lot more from what we experience than from what we are told by others. I look forward to looking out more for my own lessons, asking myself “what did I learn from this?” and sharing my thoughts in my blog posts. Hopefully, encouraging you to go out and experience it for yourself too.

Travel features – I’ve come to know a lot of people with interesting lives and perspectives, who travel a lot more than I do. In 2017, look out for stories from fellow travellers. Plus, if you’re interested in being featured yourself, then drop me a line right now at [email protected]

Wishing you all a lovely and prosperous 2017!

    I generally thrive on company, I can’t see myself doing a solo adventure. I feel like moments are generally meant to be shared…with people one cares about or who care about the stuff we care about.
