Founder’s Note: Where Are You Going In 2013?

Where are we going this year?


The whole point of Jetset Times is inspiring our readers to travel and see the world. As we grow rapidly, the most common question that comes my way is, “ what are your suggestions for XXX country?” To tackle this, in 2013, we’ll be launching JST Guide to Getaways (G2G), to help travelers on how to travel. Every month, we’ll release a specific guide that focuses on a particular city or country solely for today’s modern jetsetter. Our first edition will be published at the end of January, hang tight!

This week, our contributors explore domestic and international destinations on their travel wish lists. AJ Kiyoizumi shares Three Sublime Destinations for 2013, highlighting her will to visit Nagano (Japan), Antelope Canyon in Arizona and Rainbow Village in Taiwan. I was delighted that Taiwan made her list. I’ve always considered the thriving island as an underrated travel destination. Amanda Purcell reveals her 2013 Travel Wish List: Top Five Adventures from Southern California to China. From climbing the Great Wall to soaking up the sun in Cabo San Lucas, Amanda also mentions a common concern for those who consider living abroad: fear of leaving behind family and friends. Kaela Trutner is taking off to Europe, her piece on: Six Months in Europe, Prioritizing My First Big European Adventures emphasizes on her desire to see “everything” in Europe, therefore one must consider quite a few essentials.

Since the inception of Jetset Times, we’ve had forty-plus writers on the platform and the number continues to increase. It’s been a blessing to see individuals blossom, reflecting upon their journeys in foreign lands and creating articles that act as inspirations for others to do the same. In 2013, we’ll be covering more personal stories across continents, with guides and must-dos in a wide variety of destinations.

This year, I will begin my journey in Russia and Taiwan, then off to Paris, London, Copenhagen and many more to come. If you don’t have you passport yet, I urge you to get one asap. If you already have one, the question is: where are you going in 2013?

Safe travels,
