My Bucketlist: Bring Travel Dreams to Life

We all have bucketlists, places we want to see before we clock out for the last time. Some may involve trekking the beautiful peaks in Patagonian, or cruising the Nile, learning Italian as you travel via train through the scenic coastal towns of Italy, or being in two continents at the same time while meandering on the Bosphorus boat tours with Sofia in in your rear view or maybe even flying over across the other side of the world discovering whats really down under(when you find out let me know!). Whatever those plans are, point is we all have them! Yes, even for those whose travel plans as less of a priority than us wanderlusting addicts. Its also such a shame that most of us wait too long to realise those plans. With this blog I always try and included tips and details of how you can travel without having to sell your organs. You can check out my recent blog post on how to travel for next to nothing, which includes links to sites for the best flight deals as well as tips on saving money when booking hotels and earning points for free travel. 
I have been meaning to publish my bucketlist for sometime and but it changes so much with each and every new exciting destination that I discover. With all the changes that happen to it, I thought I would just go ahead and publish it and leave it as a dynamic list I would add to or remove, or perhaps even do a version 2 of my travel bucketlist. That’s if I rinse this one out after wining the lottery and take a year out to travel. Included at links to post covering places I have already ticked off on my bucket list. I guess on of the reasons for the delay is that this blog was really intended to provide meaningful resources for any one wishing for inspiration on destinations that are not only popular but those that you might not have considered  but now that you have seen pictures, you can then add to your bucketlist. As always if a post doesn’t provide enough details on costs, accommodation and transportation you are always welcome to email me and I will either update the post with details or just answer your questions via email/facebook/insta twitter…you get the gist!
…So indulge your wanderlust spirit as we go through some of my #bucketlist destinations and let me know below if there are places on my list that you have been to already or places we have in common? I would also love to here places you are still longing with visit but haven’t checked off your list. Let me know in the comments below.

    New York during Christmas is one of my biggest dreams, since I was a child when my parents went there with me and I can barely remember iceskating in front of the Rockefeller Center. I really wanna freshen up those memories 🙂
    This is such a beautiful bucket list!

      Wow. Sounds like a great memory to have as a child. Will hopefully get to see New York at Christmas soon too.

    Love this travel bucket list so much as well as the photos. I really should create my own travel bucket list actually, seeing as I love to travel so much as well. You are so lucky to have already experienced a sunset in Santorini.

    Wow, you've done so much! I have many of the same hopes as you, such as Vietnam, Ecudor and Norway! However, the dream is to really reach anywhere and everywhere!

    Completely loving your bucket list, mine isnt as extensive, but may have a couple of new additions. It is great to see that you have already been able to cross some off from your list!

    • October 13, 2015 / 1:10 pm

      Thanks Vianca! Hopefully my bucketlist provided some inspiration on places to visit yourself. Narrowing it down to 50 was the hard part as there is just so much to this world I would love to see.

    This is a great bucket list!
    I’ve done like less than 10 of these, but we definitely have some in common! By the way, two continents in one city – does it have to be Istanbul for you?
