The Next Horizon

When I went to Europe last summer, I wanted to write a series of posts about my trip and share the experiences that I had. I had planned to write a post for each day of my trip; however, since my trip, I’ve managed to write a whopping one post about it. :blink:

Since it’s almost summer again (is it even spring yet? I may be getting ahead of myself) I feel a little bit silly just plugging them into the middle of my blog now. But I still want to share them. I’ve also wanted to share my travels to Greece, Turkey, and England the year before, but wasn’t sure quite how to do that yet. So I had been thinking a bit about it, and I really want to open a travel blog.

I say “travel blog” a bit loosely, because I really don’t know what else to call it. I currently don’t have any plans for any major trips in the near future, so it’s not like I would be updating regularly. I also thought I would include cities around me and when I head off to college, fun pit stops and whatnot.

Nonetheless, the more I think about it, the more I really like the idea. I’ve always wanted to share pictures and stories from my trips but was never really sure how. And I absolutely love to travel, so even if I never step out of the United States again in my life, that doesn’t mean that I won’t travel to wonderful places inside the USA. So I think that this would be a wonderful way to do it and I think it would be a really fun project.

I’ve been mulling over domain names for a little bit and I think I’ve finally settled on one that I like: thenexthorizon.org. I think it would be suiting for a travel blog and I like the sound of it. :) It also might help a little bit that whenever I think of horizons I think of a certain sexy pirate captain played by a ravishing Mr. Johnny Depp. BUT ANYWAYS.

Putting this site altogether will take a lot of time, I realize, so I’m hoping on buying the domain soon and then working on it over my spring break which is coming up, the entire last week of March. That would give me quite a bit of time that I could devote to it and really get this thing running. I’m pretty excited. 8)

Would you all be interested in reading about my trips?

  1. I love reading about places people have been to! I want to go travelling the world when I am old enough so its good to see a wide variety of places to go to that people recommend :P Thank you for commenting on my blog by the way, and that must have been annoying with your 16th birthday. You’re right though about friends, they stick with you through everything. Thank you for your advice and Im looking forward to reading more of your posts and I think the travel blog is a really great idea!

  2. I am completely obsessed with travelling and have the travel bug really badly! :) So I know that I would for sure be interested in reading about your travels although I know that it would break my heart a little bit though given that I don’t have any plans to go anywhere for a while and it’ll just remind me of that fact! :( I hope you put lots of photos in your posts too! :)

  3. I love reading about people’s travel experiences! The Next Horizon sounds like a great name for a blog. I wish I traveled more often :-[

  4. I think that sounds like a great domain name for a travel blog! :) I’m really interested in traveling so I’d definitely read your travel blog! And if you’re concerned about not updating a lot, maybe you could also write about the places you’d like to visit and why? Then it would be more like a regular blog. Or you could just make a photoblog and mainly post pictures from your trips! Just some ideas, sorry they’re probably really bad. :P

  5. Lmao that’s more than me. I didn’t get to write any posts about my Korea trip except for the summary one last time. It’s so not spring yet here! Lmao getting ahead of yourself.

    Maybe instead of a travel blog you can make pages on here with enabled comments. That’s what was suggested for me except I never got to doing it. You can have a travel section? Starting a new blog is tough. I tried starting one in January and failed.

    But if you do, thenexthorizon is a good name! Lucky you can get a domain for it! Hopefully you’ll travel a lot then haha.

    I’d love to read about your travels though so make a decision soon and start posting!!!!

  6. I would love reading about your trips, even if it’s near where I live. I love to see pictures and adventures. I would love a travel blog, but I could barely keep up with a travel journal. I do have a journal that is just for travel though. I started with simple ones to the Jersey Shore (the family friendly places lol) and then to Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Mexico. I am traveling to two places this summer so I am excited. I want you to do it and I love the name!

    Yea I don’t want to transfer though. I hope I don’t need too. I have comfort making friends only once lol Well like I don’t like the anxiety of new places all the time. Yea, I believe that you need to be comfortable and College is what you make out of it. It could be a big university or a small one and as long as you get what’s out of it.

    Btw, do you have a fb or twitter? I was just wondering because I’ll like to still keep in contact with you in case both of us or one of us decides to stop blogging.
