Happy New Year from Venice, Italy.
This is the first of I hope many new years celebrated abroad. As the year comes to a close, I think its a good time to look back on the successes and failures of the last year, and what I hope 2013 will bring.
Places Visited – This year I visited France, The Netherlands, Ireland and Italy. Perhaps not as many as I’d like, but my time (and funds!) have been constrained by University. As I graduate this year, I hope I’ll have more time to go exploring.
Getting Away – I started Getting Away this year, and have enjoyed a remarkable amount of traffic for a new blog (my record so far is 200 visitors in one day). I’d like to treble that over the next year. I’d also like to start posting more photographs – perhaps one a week.
Guide – I’d like to launch the Getting Away Guide this year, summarising a location with a combination of my experience with some of the best blog posts I’ve encountered, and perhaps some bits and bobs from the sister site to this one, Trip Tricks.
So, I think that covers it. All that remains is to wish you all a great new year, and to start writing my posts about Italy for when I get home!
