Where Matador wants to travel in 2013
I’m hoping to head across the pond to track down my distant family in Cork…I already have some names, and it only took one email. In 2013 Ireland is having a year-long event called The Gathering, where basically everyone’s invited to come back to find their roots. Hope to get some good stories about it.
Utila, Bay Islands, Honduras
This place has been tapping me on the shoulder for a year now. It’s meant to be cheaper than nearby Roatan and very scuba friendly. A backpacker-friendly island stocked with beer and chill times? I’m there.
