As we start a new year, it’s important to look forward and concentrate on the present as wel as the direction we want to take over the next year. We’ve come up with a few suggestions of 12 New Year's resolutions ideas for travelers, to get you in the right mindset and set you up for a positive, happy year ahead!
Getting out of your comfort zone
Humans are naturally attracted by things, people and places they are familiar with. This year, try to break the mold and aim for new experiences! It will not only help you open up to other people, cultures and experiences during your travels, but it will also enrich your life at home.
Make a list of things you would like to try over the next year, things that maybe you never had the guts to do, or never took the chance to attempt. There is no better time than the present!

Anyone with the travel bug will tell you that the top reason they are not constantly out there is money. Unfortunately for most of us, money doesn’t grow on trees and we must work for it. Therefore, our travels rely heavily on the amount of money we are able to save (and the time we can take off, but that’s another story).
Saving money can be difficult, there are always unexpected expenses popping up at every corner. It’s hard enough to keep up with bills, regular expenses, pensions and other savings, without adding anything else, so the vacation fund gets neglected. Here are a few suggestions on how to make saving for a trip possible!

Documenting your travels
The intention to document a trip is always there, but we don’t always take the time to actually do it once we get home. Find a way that’s easy and fun for you and it will be more likely to get done. Besides, you’ll find that a well documented journal or album brings back more memories than an overpriced trinket you bought while you were away. Here are a few ways that we at The Dime Travelers like to do it – all you need as a prerequisite is lots of pictures and videos!

In all seriousness, New Year resolutions do get a bad rep: “they don’t work” and “they make people feel inadequate if they can’t accomplish them”. However, the trick to making them work for you is to make sure they are achievable and realistic. Resolutions are simply goals that you set for yourself in order to get where you need to go. Start with a reasonable goal and adjust as much as you want, as often as you want; easy as that!
