Yeah, yeah, we all resolve to eat better, exercise more, and finally clean out that hall closet… But how about promising to swear off of the excuses that have kept you from taking that trip you’ve always dreamed of?

We’d love to hear what trips you have in mind… Visit us on Facebook or Twitter to tell us where 2012 will take you!
