In developing my 2020 vision for world travel, I decided that I would scale down the ambition to take an entire trip around the world this year. Instead, I will be taking a series of smaller trips. Some of them have not even been determined yet! This allows me to under take more spontaneous trips towards the latter half of the year.
For now, I am planning a short trip to the UK and New York City in March to attend a few opera competitions. Supporting young emerging performers is a good investment in time and for diversity. The stars will inevitably be performing in the near and distant future. If you are curious, check out the pitch for opera at: https://www.wnycstudios.org/podcasts/aria-code
I still like to experience World Heritage sites whenever possible. The sites are evaluated on criteria for culture, natural beauty, or human achievement. If you need some inspiration for your next trip, here is the list: https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/
Stay tuned on this page as new trips develop for this year!
