Happy New Year!

With just a few hours left in this part of the world before 2009 rolls in I’d like to wish you all a very happy New Year. Thank you for reading Escape from New York and for your comments as well.

2008 was a good year for travel. I made it to new places-Dubai in the spring and Panama just a few weeks back.

There are also places that I returned to and hope to again and again. A last minute trip to Tokyo fell into place quite nicely. I once again traveled to Mexico for the Day of the Dead this time to Patzcuaro. I returned to London for the first time in a few years and spent some time in Los Angeles as well. These two cities always feel like a home away from home.

I never plan travels months in advance but I hope in 2009 to make it back to India, my other home away from home. Southeast Asia is calling as well, although not sure where yet. Nicaragua is also on the radar. Right now the possibilities are endless and the door wide open.

Where would you like to go in 2009?

Hi Wendy!
Happy New Year; I hope it is filled with wonderful adventures!
This year, I'll travel to Florence (again), Sardinia, Greece and (hopefully) Scandinavia... probably Stockholm. It is at the top of our list of places to visit.

Happy New Year Wendy! I never know what the new year will bring, I traveled to Brazil, St. Lucia, Dominican Republic and Barbados in 2008 with no plans at all! For 2009, I dream of St. Kitts, Cuba and Naples...
