I’ve been taught that the best way to achieve your goals is to write them down. Having a written record of things you plan to do is the best way to keep yourself accountable. Many people choose to accomplish this by creating a “Bucket List”, or things that they plan to do/accomplish before they pass away. (have you seen the movie? total tearjerker).
Being that this is a travel-oriented website and blog, I figured I’d create my own list of travel goals. I can revisit this and update it as I knock things off the list. With that said, here we go!

I strongly advise you to take some time to complete a similar list. Mine is by no means finished and I will be adding to it as time progresses.

So my people, what would you add to your personal Travel Bucket List?
