First up, 2012 will most likely not be a year of international travel for me. We managed the trip to Germany and Switzerland in 2010 but now that our little man is about to turn two years old, we have the strong feeling that a flight to Europe or in fact anywhere too far is just too much for us. He's a pretty energetic fellow and we figure there's no need to inflict the torture of trying to make him sit still for hours at a time when we could just wait a year or two and he'll deal with it a lot better.
|Will Melbourne be my first big trip of 2012?|
Having said that, I'm determined to take advantage of the fact that under-twos fly free on domestic airlines so there should be at least an interstate trip coming up in the near future. The most obvious destination for a quick trip for me is to Melbourne where I have so many friends that I miss a lot, but then I wonder if I'd be better off going somewhere entirely new - and then I remember there'll be a small boy with me! We'll see how that pans out! As for the rest of the year, there will definitely be a few more trips around Western Australia and perhaps some planning for something more adventurous in 2013.
Other than that, I've got lots of exciting things under way for Not A Ballerina. Keep watching this space and you should see a beautiful makeover, an eBook (or possibly two) and who knows what else - it's going to be a big blogging year.
And now it's over to you - have you got a post in your archive to link up that has some meaning to you for 2012? It might be a post about your 2012 resolutions, or your travel plans for 2012, but it might equally be a post you've written about a place you'd like to go to (a la my Kenyan giraffe dream) or something you'd love to repeat in 2012 - I don't mind! Check the Weekend Wandering guidelines if you're joining up for the first time and don't forget to visit the other linked up posts so you can discover some great new posts. I'm linking up to my post on New Zealand because I think this is the only overseas country I'm remotely likely to get to during 2012!
