A Passport Affair in 2015
In NYC on our way to see family, 2014 Thanks, random NYC stranger for taking our picture!
I excused myself from posting a 2014 “travel highlights” post because I was back in the States for Christmas.
I filled my time with family dinners, too many helpings of cannoli and cake, long evenings in front of the fireplace and Love Actually on repeat. And me in a very big kitchen, cooking, baking and tasting to my heart’s content.
Also, I never write an end of the year post so why break with tradition? I’d rather focus on the upcoming year and I know planning new adventures takes the sting out of leaving family and friends.
Birkenhead House, Hermanus, South Africa. 2014
So, what’s on the A Passport Affair travel agenda for 2015?
A Brilliant Inspiration, fueled by a great bottle of wine (thanks Teresa and Chip) and two days of being locked in the house with a perpetual sugar rush. May I introduce 2015…
The Year of Seven Sinful Trips
Seems fitting as my moniker is A Mistress to Travel…
We played with the idea, took the decisive and well-regarded Which of the 7 Sins are You? Buzzfeed quiz and decided to stick with the Catholic Church’s original set of sins. Which makes me wonder if this is a good idea.
So, the sins, in order of travel preference ARE…
Gluttony, Lust, Greed, Sloth, Pride, Envy, Wrath.
I’ve already sorted the Gluttony trip, which involves eating, drinking and biking? in a castle in Puglia. I’m working on the rest.
Paris, Venice or ? for Lust? Should I tap literature/mythology for Greed? Ah, the choices are endless.
Pride? I might have to refer to this list of the countries with the most national pride. You’ll never guess who the winner is….
I need your creative genius and I’m open to suggestions! Leave your ideas about where to go on my 7 Sinful Trips in the comments below and help me plan!
Yes, 2014 was a very good year.
PS. We’ll still manage to take quite a few city breaks and plan on exploring a few sections of the UK !
