Live Your Life List: Travel Edition

Welcome to Wednesday!

Most of the time, people write out a bucket list of all the things they want to do or places they want to see before they “kick the bucket.” In my opinion, it just sounds too morbid. I prefer to call it my Live Your Life List. How’s that for alliteration! The idea of these lists helps to remind and motivate people to cross these things off your list. I like the concept of living your life by doing what you want. It is your life, you should do all that you want and see everything you desire.

Being the Type-A personality that I am, I have not just one life list but 3 different lists. I have one list for travel, one list for fitness and one list for everything else. Today I want to share my Life List for Travel (which is constantly changing). As I research and read about places around the world, I am constantly adding new locations. My goal for each year is to visit at minimum one domestic location within the US and one international location. Therefore, I keep a domestic and international list to help decide. When I get to cross a travel destination off my list, I usually add another one to keep the list always growing and never include all the places I want to visit. My travel list is not just limited to a specific destination but trying certain activities in a place that are well known for such. So without further ado, here is my current list:
