Last week a friend of mine texted me and a few friends calling for a girl's trip in 2016. We all replied IN! This got me thinking about two things...Is this part of her New Year's resolution....take a girl's trip or traveling more in 2016? Or maybe her New Year's resolution was to stop thinking about it and make it happen. This lead me to my second thought of how easy it is to think and talk about, then later we worry about the details (especially us Moms) and nothing happens. I have been on lots of hypothetical vacations!
There is actually a term called Travel Paralysis. Sounds scary, huh! I thought I may have coined this phrase, but some other travel junkie beat me too it! An article I read recently suggests that it takes 80 plus days for the average consumer to make just two travel decisions. I'm talking minor decisions. The loads of information on the internet to wade through can be overwhelming and over the top time consuming, thus leading to the dreaded first world problem of Travel Paralysis! In our case, my girlfriends are good. I'm a travel planner so there will be no Travel Paralysis on my watch! But how many of you out there are suffering from this wretched condition? Too many!
Include some travel decisions in your 2016 New Year's resolutions. Take that overdue romantic trip with your spouse, take your kids somewhere else besides the beach, take a girls trip to NYC or splurge and finally take that trip to Europe you've always wanted to take. I hereby free you of your Travel Paralysis!
