During September and October of this year, I was on the road pretty incessantly. And although I adore traveling, I have to admit it was nice having November to just chill and not be living out of a suitcase. During the holidays, I like to stay put - both because of how busy I am with work and the fact that the holidays are always just better at home. But December is filled with travel for me again, as we head to Mexico in less than two weeks for Robbie's band's annual festival, and then to Atlanta right after Christmas for their 4-day New Year's run. I will admit it can be a little weird to be in a tropical location with a nonstop party going on around you during a time when you're usually wrapping gifts and drinking hot chocolate, but I don't join Robbie on the road very often, and I'm definitely grateful for the chance to take these trips. (And who could possibly complain about having to sit on the beach in the winter?)
Many of my friends are wanderlusters too (and I know many of you are as well!), so I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite gift ideas for the traveler. I hope it comes in handy if your holiday shopping list includes frequent jet-setters, or maybe even for yourself if you're going out of town for the holidays.
Do you have any trips coming up this month, or any fun travel plans for 2013?
