• 2013 Resolutions

    CWT Savvy Traveler
    Here we are, one week into the new year, and we thought it would be a good time to tell you what some of our new year’s resolutions are here at the CWT Savvy Traveler blog. We’ll keep it simple and start with two… and then see where the year takes us!

    Resolution No. 1 – Expand our horizons

    We started as a blog that primarily focused on North America, but in 2013 we look forward to providing more content that is relevant to travelers across the globe. And as always, we’d love to hear from you about the topics you’d like to see discussed here. Feel free to email us with your ideas!

    Resolution No. 2 – Bring you more voices

    In 2013, we resolve to bring you the perspectives of even more bloggers. We’ll be inviting CWT experts from across our organization to join us as guest bloggers on a regular basis, to talk about their areas of expertise, offer travel tips, or just share interesting photos or stories. We’re already getting started with this resolution, as you can see in last week’s guest post from CWTSatoTravel’s Matt Beatty on the topic of the U.S. “fiscal cliff.”

    What kinds of resolutions are you making this year? Travel more? Travel less? Get to your bucket list destinations? We’d love to hear about them!


    Safe Travels,

    This might sound counterintuitive, but I actually resolve to check my bags more often when traveling on business, even if I’m paying for the privilege. Have done it on the last two trips and it’s so much nicer to not have to drag the roller bag through the terminal and try to wedge it in an overhead. (Plus, my destinations are often served by smaller jets.) As long as I don’ t have a tight schedule at my destination where waiting for the baggage carousel is an issue, I think I’ll keep doing this. Worth the money for a little peace of mind.

  2. Alisa says:

    This year, I resolve to get my 32-year old boyfriend to take his first flight on a commercial jet because it’s about time.

    Now, where to go… :)

  3. Alisa says:

    Oh, and I also plan to acquire a passport–finally!

  4. Elizabeth says:

    Nice, Alisa! I like your resolutions. And you’ll have to let us know where the momentous first flight takes you both! Photos, please!

  5. You’re right, Bob, it can definitely be worth the money to avoid the hassle of lugging a bag around. Plus, not having to worry about the 3-1-1 liquids rule with a checked bag would make packing and security checkpoints a little easier.

    Safe (and enjoyable) travels!
