Having trouble thinking of a New Year's resolution that excites you? Here are some travel New Year's resolutions any keen traveller will be desperate to stick to! Which ones will you decide to try in 2019?

1) Travel solo

If you've never travelled solo before, you're missing out on one of the top travel trends of 2018!

Travelling independently of your partner, friends or family is a truly liberating experience and you seriously shouldn't go another year without trying it. Not only will you make new friends and connect with like-minded solo travellers, but you will also enjoy a holiday that's yours and yours alone - without having to worry about the needs of others.

2) See one of the New Wonders of the World

From Machu Picchu in Peru to Petra in Jordan, the New Seven Wonders of the World are a series of bucket-list attractions voted for by the general public to replace the original Seven Wonders of the World - many of which have been destroyed.

India's Taj Mahal, The Great Wall of China, Mexico's Chichen Itza, Christ the Redeemer in Brazil and the Colosseum in Rome complete the list. Which one will you be visiting in 2019?

3) Create a bucket-list - and start completing it

Everyone should have a bucket list: it gives you something to strive for and look forward to - and it's fun to make!

Dedicate some time to thinking about what sights you want to see, what experiences you want to undergo and what accomplishments you want to achieve, and aim to tick at least one off by the end of 2019. 


4) Taste a new cuisine in the place of its origin

Everyone knows that there's no better place to eat pizza than in Italy, and this is true of every cuisine you're familiar with - and those you're not too.

If a classic kebab-and-chips combo is your favourite fast food treat, why not travel to Turkey and try a mouth-watering döner kebab straight from the source? Or if you've always wanted to try Japanese food, give Wagamama a miss and travel to Japan for an authentic culinary experience.

5) Go on a once-in-a-lifetime cruise

A cruise is an experience that sits at the top of many wanderlusters' travel wish-lists - and for good reason. Where else can you sit back with a cocktail in hand and a world of entertainment at your doorstep, while waking up in a new destination every day? 

If there's a cruise you've always wanted to book, make 2019 the year it happens. That ship has not yet sailed...

6) Do something out of your comfort zone

New Year's resolutions were made for trying something wild and wonderful you never would have thought you're capable of!

Whether that's travelling alone for the first time, trying skiing or diving in the Great Barrier Reef, there's never been a better time to throw yourself into something that scares you.

7) Pick a random holiday destination

If you're truly stuck for ideas on where to go on holiday next, it's time to let fate decide. Cover your eyes, point your finger anywhere on the map and book a holiday to whatever destination it lands on (as long as it's safe).

You might end up travelling somewhere you've never considered; who knows what adventures you'll have there?


8) Go on safari

Seeing the 'Big Five' in their natural habitat is a dream for any wanderluster. If you haven't already, why not book a holiday to Kenya or Tanzania - two of the best countries for safaris, and fulfil every explorer's dream of going on safari? 

Not only will you be able to spot lions, rhinos, buffalo, lions and leopards, but you can also get up close and personal with zebras, giraffes and thousands of flamingos - and even witness the annual wildebeest migration.

9) Take more photographs

In light of the news that taking photographs can actually improve your memory, deciding to make good use of your camera can reap more rewards that you might first think.

Taking photographs doesn't mean you're not 'living in the moment'; rather, it means you value that moment enough to record it forever.

Whether you're holidaying at home in the UK or further afield, make a special effort to bring your camera with you in 2019 and capture as many treasured moments as you can. Your future self will thank you for it!

10) Head off the beaten track

While UNESCO-listed sights and attractions are always pretty spectacular, sometimes you learn the most about a country and its culture by leaving the beaten track.

Next time you go on holiday, don't just stick to the well-trodden tourist trails; venture off-road to explore someplace that's not in your travel guide and see what you find there.
