Travel Bucket List

It’s been a long time coming, but here it is, my very first post on the new Stay Home Traveler blog. Hi! Hello. Welcome back.

I’ve been determined to start blogging for so long, and have made some attempts over the years to get Stay Home Traveler going, but never found the right motivation to keep writing. So here I am, trying it again, ha. And what better way to start blogging than to share my travel bucket list?

Traveling has always been my passion. But when I was younger and we were on vacation, I enjoyed swimming a lot more. Honestly? I didn’t care

about old buildings or anything my mom would drag my brother and me to. The hour long car rides in the hot sun mostly made me grumpy and made me want to go swimming even more. Luckily a lot has changed in the past decade! I think it may be a family thing, traveling that is. My mom loves to travel, so does my brother, and my aunt traveled all over the world when she was in her twenties. Even my grandma has been all over the globe! Which means I didn’t have any chance not to be born with a wanderlust heart.

Which brings me to the actual list. I decided to make a bucket list, just for traveling. I also have a second bucket list just for my daily life, but that’s for another day. There’s a big chance I won’t be able to cross everything off this list. Maybe I’ll even add some things to it over the years, but it’s nice to be able to have something solid and be able to look back to. Or even get some inspiration from for my next trip.

A travel bucket list isn’t complete without a list of all the placed I so desperately want to visit! And every now and again I’ll try and update this list too by adding or crossing more numbers away. Hopefully, someday I’ll look back at this very first post and be able to cross the very last thing away! (Which is unlikely, since I’m adding things nearly every week.)
