A Community Travel Bucket List that Keeps Growing!

Won’t you get lonely? Isn’t viewing it on the Travel Channel or reading AFAR enough? Isn’t it dangerous? Don’t you like your family? WHAT exactly are you running from?!

I’ve heard it all, yet my wandering spirit remains undeterred. And the fact that my parents fed my wild imagination with weekly gifts of literature as a child, doomed me to a life of wonder. Wondering what lay ELSEWHERE. But who’s complaining? Now, when I’m feeling particularly guilty about leaving, I blame it all on them. 😛  

Do I miss my loved ones? Most certainly. Is living vicariously through travel magazines enough? No.

In the spirit of guilty confession, I now share my BUCKET LIST and in no particular order. 😀 

However, I want this list to be INTERACTIVE and to evolve! 


  • Share your bucket list items in the comments below — be as detailed as you’d like!
  • If there’s an item on my list that’s on yours, let me know!
  • With each added wish, please include your NAME and HOMETOWN. I would love to get to know you!

I’ll ADD YOUR travel WISHES  to the ULTIMATE BUCKET LIST and place 🙂 ’s next to the more popular ones!

GET INSPIRED to go from VISION to VOYAGE when you see just how many others are crazy about what lies on the horizon!

Who knows? Maybe YOU’LL soon be the one fumbling for an answer as you race to yet another airport security checkpoint. 😀
