10 Travel Resolutions To Make 2022 Your Best Year Yet!

You know it’s New Year when you open new calendars, write down your resolutions and hope that this would be yet another new chapter in your life. A fresh page, a fresh you. Just thinking about resolutions, you might have made a mental note of your list this year. But how many would you stick to, and how many would you break? Amidst all these uncertainties if there is one thing we would all like to agree on, is our wish to explore a little more of this marvellous world, and in turn, dig a little deeper into our souls. What are the travel resolutions for 2020? To help you, travel enthusiasts, this year, here are travel resolutions to make in 2022. While everything might not work out exactly as you wish, but do give them a sincere shot. It will definitely worth it.

1. Go Solo Travelling

Who is the most important person in your life? Are you thinking about your parents, spouse, children, friends or your pet? Well, the answer is simple, it’s YOU. And sometimes the solution to your problems can be as simple as spending more time with your self. And one way to do that is by venturing out on a solo travel experience. You need not go to any foreign location, just explore a new city in your state. Explore a new place, spend some quality time with yourself, eat the food you love, do the things you’ve always wanted to do without compromising your travel desires for anyone or anything. And trust us, you will come back rejuvenated and refreshed. This is one great travel resolution to make in 2020. So commit to yourself and try solo travel, and enjoy some much-needed me-time.

2. Challenge Yourself And Try Adventure Activities

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara taught us to face our fears. Watching our favourite Bollywood stars take the plunge to try out adventure activities in this film, was truly inspiring. So this year maybe it’s your turn to have your ‘Darr Ke Aage Jeet Hai’ moment. Whether it’s paragliding, scuba diving, snorkelling, paramotoring, monsoon trekking or anything exhilarating, its time you sink your teeth in it. If now then when right? India itself has good spots for adventure activities and you can have a plethora of options for that. So this is one of the travel resolutions you should make this year.

3. Travel Sustainably

Bali is facing a severe water shortage due to mass tourism. On the other hand forests in Australia have been burning at a rampant rate. Lakes and rivers have been choked due to plastic pollution. Global warming, climate emergency, plastic pollution have taken the world by storm. And as travellers, its necessary to be aware of these issues. So this year make a resolution to yourself to travel sustainably. Use water efficiently, try to minimize your plastic use, do not litter places, light a fire irresponsibly when you’re travelling. Travel responsibly and sustainably, to make your travel experience a better one. Check out Bangalore’s Zero Waste Juice Bar which is taking a step towards making the world a better place.

4. See The World Through Your Eyes

You might think that this is an obvious resolution. But can you resist the itch of constantly using your phone, checking into locations and clicking those Insta-Worthy pics when you’re travelling? If you can’t then maybe this one is for you. It’s time you avoid seeing the world through the lens of your camera and see it through your lens, your eyes. The vibrantly painted sunsets, misty mountains, lush greenery, emerald lakes are a sight to behold. So you can try going on a digital detox during your journey or even venture out to places that have little or no connectivity. The world looks a lot beautiful outside the periphery of your camera.

6. Pack Lighter

When you go travelling, do you travel with large suitcases, sometimes pay an excess baggage fee and then return back not even using half of the things you took with you? If you’re nodding, then this travel resolution is for you. Get rid of those multiple bags, overweight suitcases and unnecessary things. Pack light and travel light, to make your travel experience a comfortable and convenient one. Leave some room to get little souvenirs as well. You definitely don’t need much to create memorable experiences. So make the travel resolution for 2020, to pack lighter.

7. Travel To A New Destination In Your Country

India is truly Incredible India. Each state has plenty of unexplored cities, each city has plenty of hidden gems, and it would take a lifetime to explore every nook and cranny of our beautiful country. So why not start now itself? Be it budget holidaying, staying at a hostel, going camping or even residing at a gorgeous resort, travel in your own unique style to a new destination in India. Go for those weekend road trips with your camp, or the coveted temple pilgrimage to the Char Dham Yatra. Be it the Hornbill Festival in Nagaland, Kutch Rann Utsav in Gujarat or the Hampi Utsav in Karnataka, do immerse yourself in the culture of an Indian festival this year.

8. Stay Fit While Travelling

Travelling does not mean you toss aside your fitness. Yes, you would surely love to indulge in rich delicacies of the place and chill with your loved ones, but at the same time, do take care of your health. The resorts or hotels you stay in might have gym facilities and swimming pools. So do make it a point to use them. If not, you can always go for trekking, hiking, jogging or brisk walking to keep yourself fit. So this New Year makes a resolution to stay fit while travelling. Even a daily 30-minute walk or jog will do the trick. Enjoy your holidays and experience every moment of bliss with your loved ones.

9. Make Beautiful Mementos Of Your Travel Experiences

Clicking photos is a nice way to capture the essence of your travel experience. But how about encapsulating every smell, taste, feel and texture of your travel experience for posterity? Let me give you a little tip. You can make a lovely scrapbook, where you can stick your travel tickets, flower petals, bird feathers, brochures and every little titbit about your travel. And anytime you remember your experience, you can just open your scrapbook and browse through the contents, to take you down memory lane. Here are 5 Things To Remember While Travelling


10. Live In The Moment

Leave that work stress, family problems, restlessness and every little trouble out at the airport. And once you board your flight to your destination, venture on a fresh note. When you witness that gorgeous sunset at the white sandy beach, let no other thoughts cross your mind, except the beauty that lies in front of you. It can be tough to stay in the moment, as our minds often wander to places restlessly. But try to meditate or just breath in the essence of a new place and new experience, and breathe out the troubles back at home. Live in the moment, and every travel experience would be a much more beautiful one.


These are some of the travel resolutions to make in 2020. So start this year on a fresh note, and let this year bring you lots of beautiful travel experiences, special memories, valuable learnings and ofcourse a deeper meaning to your life. Happy New Year!
