My Ultimate Travel Bucket List

50 of the top places and experiences I have on my travel bucket list

It has been a while since I put together a post and I thought why not start with something light and inspirational. The initial reason that I started my blog was because I would often get travel questions from friends. I used to just share notes from my phone, but I thought if my friends were interested, my travel tips could appeal to a wider audience as well. I get so hyped when someone goes and visits somewhere I suggested and falls in love with it. I tend to be a planner, so I used to do extensive research before every trip that I would go on. Over the years I have chilled out and I am now more go-with-the-flow and open to missing one or two attractions when I visit a destination.

Travel continues to be one of more core values. I think it goes beyond seeing beautiful destinations, it is an avenue to connect with different cultures and push yourself out of your comfort zone. At the beginning of the year, I do goalsetting and I try to map out a few destinations that I would love to visit. I thought it would be fun to put together a more extensive list of things that I have ALWAYS wanted to do. I kept it short and sweet no explanation needed!
