You're always talking about seeking some great "adventure," so why not actually follow through with it this year? It may be cliche, but with each passing day you really are both the oldest you've ever been and the youngest that you'll ever be. Tell your job that you'll BRB, and hop on the plane to explore one of these exotic locations for a week or so. Grab friends or go solo, because you know that the decision to travel is almost never a regrettable one.
