This year, I am going travelling. No arguments, no excuses - and no more faffing! And the current credit crunch will not stop me.

I've been talking about it for so long, and have finally reached the put-up or shut-up stage. The only travelling I managed to do last year was a week in Crete with my parents and a few days in Arran, which was lovely. But it only made me realise how much I really need to do this.

As yet, still no idea where I'm going first, other than hopefully there will be a distinctly spiritual slant - sign me up for meditation, yoga, chanting, reiki, studying with shamans, drumming circles and all the good stuff!

With any luck i'll also get to pitch up at a nice vineyard and learn more about wine than how much I like to drink it. Oh and climbing a few mountains would be good fun too....

I am so excited! Plan is to get on a plane from Edinburgh mid-May, so fingers crossed.

The funniest thing at the moment is keeping a straight face when people say "when you come back in a year." Hmmmm. I'll get back to you on that one. ;)

I'm also not sure whether I should be getting a working visa for Australia or New Zealand - any tips?

Here's wishing everyone a cracking 2009. It's going to be great.

Hey all,

Glad to hear you are all looking forward to the new year, and what wonders it can bring into your life.

I also started 2009 as a singleton and it was the best decision I have made in a long while, so I thought whilst I was making life changing decisions that I would also embark on the scary but exciting thought of seeing this beautiful world that we live in, that I have yet to experience.

I have absolutely no idea where to start or where to go, so any suggestions would be greatly recieved. All I know is that I have took the first step and booked a trip to West coast USA in March on an organised trip to slowly work my way into the travelling world. Then 2010 brings a trip to see family in Australia, who I have been promising to go and visit for the past 5 years now.

So just to say best luck and wishes to all, and hope your plans go better than expected!!!
