My travel bucket list

posted in: Tips & Tricks, Travels | 4

My travel bucket list is basically infinite. A long list of dreams that keeps on growing. For every destination I reach, a bunch of new ideas are added! Right now, my list is a dozen pages long google doc with cities, routes, accommodations, links, natural attractions, museums and even entire countries, when I don’t have specific details.

Usually, all these ideas are just suggestions and reminders to check when I plan a trip. A sort of digital collection of post-it to help my lame memory out. My travel dreams are a bit less. They are those trips that I would really like to do, once in a lifetime. Some I’ve already realized. Others are patiently waiting in their turn. One day, I always repeat. One day.

    Unique bucket list! As for me, I would like to visit some tourist spots here in my country, Philippines. Because I know that our tourism were very much affected by the pandemic so I’m gonna be a little help for their income by being a tourist on my own land.

      You’re so right!!! I think I’ll do the same, especially at the beginning when international travelling might still be complicated. I can’t wait to get out and explore more again!!

    You have soooo cool bucket list! It’s not like the list ”visit Italy, visit Spanien etc”. You have really amazing ideas and that’s great! One of my biggest dreams is also visiting Machu Picchu! I hope, one day we both will manage it! 🙂
