Can you believe that we are already in 2016? When I was a kid, I remember my head wandering about how the new millennium was going to be. Fast forward several years and here we are.
From the bottom of my heart I wish you all a happy, blessed and prosperous year!
2015 was great and I am looking forward to what 2016 has in store.
On a professional level, I am ready to enter my second year as a data analyst for a technology company.
On a personal level, I am inspired to make several lifestyle changes (eat healthy, exercise more). In addition, I am looking into different ways to give back to the community and those in need.
In relation to travel, I am already looking into new adventures. Looks like we are visiting Mexico with friends this upcoming weekend. I am looking into returning to Spain (and add Portugal too). I have the desire to visit more National Parks (since the agency is going to be celebrating its centenary). Plus, I am sure a lot of unplanned, out of the blue adventures are going to pop up.
The funny thing is that before writing this post I looked at the post I wrote last year during this same period. All the resolutions and / or intentions mentioned there still resonate with me as good ideas for this year. There are certain things that are good to keep in mind.
And, as you can imagine, I will include those thoughts below. Just because I know you will like them!
And guess what? This little blog turned 5 during the holidays. Isn’t that crazy? On top of that, I am three posts away from 600.
My lovely side project is so grown up. Sometimes, I cannot believe I have been doing this for so many years. However, travel and blogging are two things I truly enjoy. I cannot imagine my life without one or the other.
Last year, was a very good one for the blog. I met tons of new bloggers, had the pleasure to participate in multiple link parties, answered tons of comments, covered events and even reviewed a hotel.
This year I have plans to redesign the site, put in action several social media strategies and pursue more partnerships. And, let’s not forget about content. I still have tons of stories to share about Spain, California and Arizona.
From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank one and each of you for stopping by, for taking a second to make me part of your life. I feel I don’t give enough if I take into consideration all that I receive. Your brilliant energy and love is what keeps me going.
Happy New Year! Keep living, keep loving and keep traveling.
What are your plans for this year? Drop me a line and let me know if I can help you in some way. And, I mean it!
P.S. This is a good time to like my social media profiles if you have not done it already.
