I’m a big believer in creating dream boards to help you visualize what you want to accomplish and stay focused on your goals. That’s why I like this new Facebook My Travel Wish app by Starwood Hotels and Resorts that helps you map out your travel bucket list. It works a bit like some of your favorite travel style quizzes, except this one maps you exactly to a destination and Starwood Hotel property, taking all of the work out of where to stay AND helps you book it. Talk about visualizing – I can almost see myself in an over-water bungalow at the Le’ Méridian in Tahiti, in a relaxing retreat with my husband in Bali at the St. Regis Bali Resort, or with my family at the Le Méridian Etoile, strolling the streets of Paris. Now is the time we start our goal setting for 2013 and I’m definitely using this app to help us plan our trips for 2013, including a big birthday trip for my husband and friends to the Tambo del Inka Resort & Spa, Valle Sagrado in Peru. So stop wishing and see Hip Travel Mama’s favorite Travel Wishes. (CAUTION: It’s super addicting and you will want to take the quiz over and over.)
