Happy New Year!

exploring-california-main-page-copyHappy New Year! Say good-bye to 2016 and say hello to 2017. I love New Year’s Day, I love the idea of starting over and erasing or enhancing something that happen in the past.   For me every year has a theme and 2017 is all about change. Some changes will be good other changes I am not sure about. I guess I will have to find out as the year progresses.

So let me start with the change that I consider a “good change”. Well for starters this blog is new. This blog will be all about my experiences while I travel and explore my home state of California. I always wanted to have a blog and in the past I would even sign for a blog and never used it. The truth is I really didn’t know what I was doing. Do I know what I am doing now? No, but I plan on learning as I go.

Another change is my involvement in social media. I have Facebook, Instagram and You Tube but I really haven’t done much with these platforms. I post photos here and there but not on a regular bases. I hardly posted any videos in my You Tube channel which is very sad. Well 2017 will be dedicated to sharing more of my trips. Most importantly I will be posting everything here in this blog.

New Years is not complete without a New Year’s Resolution. I love New Year’s Resolutions mostly because I am exciting in starting on the goals I wrote down. Like many of you I start very dedicated in January on working to accomplish several of my goals and then by March I forget I had a New Year’s Resolution. Well this year it will not be any different. If I know something for sure is, I will never accomplish all my New Year Resolutions. That I can always count on. I still do it because it motivates me to do something exciting. So without further delay here is my list of places I plan on visiting in 2017.
