Ireland is on my radar for 2014. I've been doing a days worth of research on where to go and where to stay. It looks like home base will be Dublin yet I'll venture out for 2 days west to Galway and then 2 days south to the upper lake of Glendalough, south of Dublin.
To get there I'll be taking the scenic Old Military Road which was originally built by the Romans.
Finally venturing over to Galway and taking a bus to the famous Cliffs of Moher.
I'm scoping out BnB's in the remote locations and hostels in the more populated ones. I already have an idea which ones I'll be using. The planning stages are early but things are coming along. Whittling out a plan bit by bit to reveal a solid itinerary is still thrilling to me.
Adam captured some quick videos while on the trip and was able to edit and upload them from his phone. I still have a lot of footage to sort through and maybe sometime soon I'll get the inspiration to sift through them all haha. Until then, enjoy these clips.

Hope you enjoyed these videos. Credit given to Adam for shooting and editing them. Stay tuned for my videos!
I already have ideas as to where I'll be traveling in 2014 and 2015. I've accumulated enough Skymiles through Delta that they've given me a free domestic round trip flight. I've always wanted to visit the Pacific Northwest and I feel Washington state would be a great place to explore. I was thinking about heading down to Portland Oregon but with only 7 days I figure I might as well go to up Vancouver since I've never technically been in Canada. Now I'll just need to find out what areas to explore. I expect that I'll be going sometime in late May of 2014. In addition I might be heading over to Ireland later in the year to explore the old country. I also might be able to attend the Stockholm Water Prize if everything pans out. Two separate trips at the opposite ends of the world. We have a lot to cover in 2014, stay tuned!
As for 2015, I'll be heading to Barcelona, The Pyrenees, Cinque Terre, and Venice. I've already pretty much mapped out that whole trip thanks to Rick Steves' amazing documentation of the areas. This trip will cover pretty much a horizontal line from Spain across southern France and northern Italy. This won't be as epic as my last trips, less cities, less countries, less travel. We'll see how it pans out in 2015.
