The Ultimate Travel Bucket List

Every traveler needs to have a travel bucket list. I decided to share mine to give you all some ideas, either to get your list started or to add to an already existing one.

I’m an avid list-maker. Besides the obvious shopping and daily to-do lists, I also have lists (however unnecessary they may be) for books to read or buy, recipes to try, future pet names, languages that I want to learn, bucket lists in five-year increments, movies to watch, subjects to study, and random facts. Honestly, it’s one of my favorite things to do.

  2. Good lists and excellent images. I did manage to visit Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque a few years ago, and it was eye-opening. Tourists are provided with bags to cover their footware, rather than having to take their shoes off, and I have to say that on that day, I believe I was the only one with Blue-bagged Luchese western boots in either of those buildings!

    • Wow, that sounds awesome!! I’ve wanted to go to to the Hagia Sofia since I first learned about it in 7th grade. I’m glad you had a nice time!


  3. The Isle Of Skye is definitely on our bucket list for next year’s travel. If you observe the outdoor scenery in the Netflix series Outlander, you can probably know why. Your list tells me you may not be a big fan of the one day stop limits of cruising.. Correct?

    • Interesting! I am not quite a fan of cruises, but just because I am afraid of the ocean 🙂 Although my grandma has been trying to get me to go on a river cruise in Russia for some time now.
