You might have every travel channel possible, google and pin a thousand different places, but the only real way to find inspiration is to get out there, see it, and experience it. Travel should start at an early age (Children under 2 fly free, so take advantage if you can!) I try to discover one new city or country a year, aim to go to as many places as I have pages in my passport.
The Tourist can be a horrible stereotype; the trick is to blend in with the locals, respect their culture and the doors will open for you to explore. Picking a destination is like deciding which chocolate to pick from the box; you can see what it looks like in the picture, but you don't know what it is like on the inside until you have taken a bite. Take a risk, and find a new favourite.
The internet can be a great source of inspiration so can books and movies - The Sound of Music will take you to Salzburg, Moulin Rouge to Paris, A Suitable Boy to India. Everyone should visit the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, stand at the top of the Empire State Building, wake up on a tropical island.
Do you have travel plans? This year Wonderland is off to Prague, Amsterdam and India in the New Year, how about you? Or where do you dream of going next?
