A New Year is all about an opportunities for changes. Many take the beginning of the year to set their aspirations and how they wish to change for the upcoming year. Cydny was no different. She took the beginning of 2018 to affirm her desire to change some of her ways. Read her resolution below about the New Travel Style she wishes to adopt.

Now onto Cydny’s Affirmation of her New Year’s Resolutions…

It’s safe to say that we’ve seen a lot after traveling to 31 countries and 34 states. It’s always been our mission to experience as much as we can while we are away. This approach has been a blessing as well as a curse. My husband and I eat, sleep, and breathe, travel. We are in a constant state of research for our next adventure, so much so that before one is complete we are chatting about what could be next. The world is our motivation.

For 2018, I challenge ourselves to immerse ourselves in wherever we visit. To slow down, breathe, and fall into the day-to-day of what a country or city has to offer. Often we arrive bright eyed and bushy tailed. We hit the town running with zero sleep and do not stop until we return home. We understand what kids say, “FOMO,” Fear Of Missing Out. We can’t help but feel thankful to be somewhere so we must take advantage of every opportunity we can find,usually leaving us depleted.

Our mission is to practice being fully present. View our experiences as if we are a local instead of a tourist. I’d like us to begin spending more time in a location, learn to fully understand it before venturing outside of it. It’s this practice that will teach us more about the culture and open our eyes to the hidden gems we may miss when moving too fast.
