Monday Travel Update – New Year’s Eve Edition

My new laptop

My time here in Wisconsin is coming to a close. I’ve spent the last month working on projects and upgraded a lot of my gear. It has probably been the single biggest gear upgrade I’ve done since I’ve started traveling in 2007.

I’ve purchased a new laptop, new backup hard drives, new iPhone, new ereader, new headphones and a new bag. Even though no one other than myself will really notice, it will be a whole different travel set up for me. The new gear, especially the laptop, should make me far more productive, especially when it comes to editing photos. If nothing else, at least Netflix will look much better.

If you haven’t read any of my end of the year posts, here is a summary:

As an added bonus, I sat down and figured out all the different airports I flew through in 2012. It was a much longer list than I thought. They are in no particular order and I haven’t repeated any.

That is far more than I realized!

On Friday I’ll be making my first trip of 2013 when I fly to Las Vegas for the New Media Expo. I’ll be speaking on Monday January 7 from 2:45pm – 3:45pm in room Rio #3. If you are going to be in attendance or happen to be in Las Vegas, stop by and say hi.

On Wednesday, January 9, I’ll be flying from Las Vegas to San Jose, Costa Rica. As of right now, I have nothing other than my plane ticket. I have no hotel and nothing planed for my stay. If you have been to Costa Rica and have any suggestions, I am open to your suggestions.

I hope everyone had a great 2012 and has travel in their plans for 2013!

My G Adventures Ship in the Galapagos Islands

This is the last day to register to win a trip to the Galapagos Islands with G Adventures. I visited the Galapagos with G Adventures in 2011 and it was an incredible experience. I saw all manner of native wildlife that I had never seen before, including marine iguanas, blue and red footed boobies and giant tortoises.

The Galapagos should be on everyone’s list of places to visit. It was picked as the first World Heritage Site for a reason.
