Here it is – the Bucket List Post!!
Recently I read an article from Travel + Leisure that suggested, with scientific research, that wanderlust is genetic. After reading, I immediately forwarded it to my parents with all of the travel emojis that I could find. Reason being, they instilled in me a love for exploring new places and learning about different cultures. I’m pleased to say that I’ve married a man who I’ve been able to pass this yearning onto. And I’m even more excited that he’ll be able to accompany me on my bucket list adventures.
Without further ado, her is my ever-growing travel bucket list:
*Some are noted with a date beside to represent a planned trip.

Of course, this list will continue to grow over the years, as it does almost weekly. I tell my husband often, “I’d be fine with eating peanut butter and jellies every day for the rest of my life, if it means being able to see the world.” I don’t always follow through with this but I think it’s important that we’re both on the same page in regards to putting a significant importance on traveling.
