A travel bucket list is a list of all the places you want to visit around the world, the ultimate adventures, and the travel experiences that you want to have in your lifetime.
Why Do You Need One?
Certainly, it’s important to set goals for yourself. Once you fix a travel bucket list, it will help you to do that. It gives you a purpose in life because it’s something you know that you want to do.
The list may change and vary along the way, but it’s not secret that we are best motivated when we have a deadline.
The choice depends largely on you on where to place those goals, whether you want them to be short term or long term.
Also, you can choose not to give it a time period. And why? This is because the list goes on for the rest of your life, therefore, there’s no rush.
The truth is, some of my most memorable moments during our travels, were unexpected. They were not featuring on any list. One of these examples is the Botanical Gardens of Crete.
How to Create an Ultimate Travel Bucket List
Indeed, creating your bucket list is as fun as completing it. This is because it’s a chance to turn some of those dreams into reality.
It can be overwhelming to look at your long list and think about how and when you will complete them all.
Steps to Writing a Travel Bucket List
1 ✦ BRAINSTORM
Take the time and write down every travel idea that comes to mind without holding yourself back.
2✦ EDIT THE LIST
Ask yourself the following questions:
- What items has a time limit?
- Who is doing it with you?
- Do they require accommodations?
- Where is it?
- Do you need to arrange travel ahead of time?
- How much does it cost?
- How long will it take you to save up the funds?
3✦ BE FLEXIBLE
Life changes rapidly and so do people, desires, and dreams. Allow your list to evolve and don’t be fixed on dreams and goals that no longer serve you.
Review your list every now and then and change it if needed. Don’t be afraid to change or mend it because its relevancy will help you stay motivated and focused.
4✦ START TODAY
Go through your list and choose what items to start with. Choose 3 goals that excite you the most and think about what can you do right now to make it happen.
There are so many destinations in the world that are not to be missed and many experiences to be had.
I highly recommend creating your own travel bucket list. I believe that it’s definitely worth it. Set goals for yourself, get out there and discover something new.
Last but not least, start checking off your bucket list. Make the most of your life!
A Travel Quote…
“If I’d learnt one thing from travelling, it was that the way to get things done was to go ahead and do them. Don’t talk about going to Borneo. Book a ticket, get a visa, pack a bag, and it just happens.” -Alex Garland
