Let’s be honest, everybody has one!
We have THIS ONE too – our little Travel Bucket List
We don’t have any fancy name for our bucket list. Some people call the lists “50 Ultimate Travel Bucket List Ideas” or write about “100 things to do before you die”. But why would we constrain us with a 50 or 100 number? We believe a bucket list has to be simple and unique. The list should be in constant working progress, a never-ending list… 🙂 – We like it that way!
OK, maybe we will never tick all the ideas from the list – yes, maybe you are right! But you never know what the future will bring. So just in case, we will keep adding new travel destinations and experiences to our list 🙂
Does everyone need a travel bucket list?
NO. Not everybody. It depends on how often you travel and… if you are a travelholic 😉
If travel is your passion, you will definitely have some kind of list with the top places you wish to visit – it’s a no-brainer!
Examples of travel bucket lists:
- “Bucket list for summer” – have free time during school break? Summer is a great time to tick a few ideas on your list!
- All pizza-lovers would have a list of “the best places to visit in Italy“.
- “Bucket list of places to visit” – whether you are travelling the world, Europe or just your own home country – it’s great to have a list of dream destinations.
- “Best places to visit in Europe” – American, going to Europe? Make sure you create a list of best places to visit in Europe before your trip.
- “Bucket list for couples” – married couple or best teenage friends? Crossing off things from your couple bucket list is double fun!
- A list of the “best beaches in Europe” – I bet all beach-lovers have this one ready!
- “Bucket list travel USA” – love Las Vegas or less crowded destinations in the USA? It’s a great idea to create a list of the best places to visit in the United States.
- “Bucket list ideas UK“ – amazing British things to do any time of the year.
- Even a list of “best things to do in London” – the capital of United Kingdon has 100s of great attractions worth being added to a bucket list. Or, if you fancy, go for one of the stunning day trips from London to escape from the capital city.
- If you rather fancy warmer climate a list of “best places to visit in Spain” will be more to your taste 😉
Unsaid rules of a bucket list:
Before you start creating your ideal travel list, you have to remember to follow 3 main rules:
- Be honest with yourself! Don’t add things you know you don’t like doing.
- It’s OK to check out others list! If you haven’t heard about a place, you will never add it to your bucket list, right? So, keep exploring Pinterest.
- Do NOT close it. NEVER! The last point on your bucket list should be kept empty – just a reminder: there is always space for new travel ideas 🙂
How to start your ideal travel bucket list in 5 steps:
- STEP 1: Get a huge mug of coffee (the most important thing to start with 😉 ). You really need one!
- STEP 2: Get a piece of paper and a pen (or nowadays probably an iPhone 😉 )
- STEP 3: Think about the trips you have done already, and… FORGET about them!
- STEP 4: Go to Pinterest or Instagram to find new true inspirations! Just type travel destinations and you will get 100s of ideas!
- STEP 5: Go crazy with your imagination and don’t think what others will say! At the end of the day – it’s your travel bucket list!
And if you really struggle to be creative, just watch The Bucket List movie to get some ideas.
Enough talking! (or reading for you 😉 )
You probably can’t wait to see our bucket list 🙂 There you are:
