Bucket List

Cappadocia Me

When I was little, my first and only travel dream was to go to Australia and meet kangaroos (I was a big fan of Skippy :)). Granted, I didn’t know much about the world but that’s probably when my travel itch started. I had to go to Australia!

Sadly I haven’t been to Australia yet (*still saving*) but one thing is sure : the more you travel, the more you want to keep traveling. You know, this syndrome : You barely finished your vacations that you start planning the next ones.

Since my first travel, my to-do list hasn’t stopped getting longer and longer. It is so long that I wonder if I haven’t forgotten my first “to-do’s” which is a shame because they probably were awesome!

It is always fun to see how your goals and aspirations evolve as you become a more experienced traveler. My first travel experiences were “beach resorts” vacations and so were my dream vacations at that point : “beach, pool, food”. Heaven!
I don’t mean that beach resorts are not good, in fact they are really relaxing but my interests have evolved. I discovered the outdoors and I discovered that I love hiking. And if you start thinking about all the amazing trails around the globe to explore.. well it’s about how long my dream bucket list is.

Luckily I am also (slightly) realistic and have shorten it to make it more do-able and readable.

Don’t worry, my childhood dream to go to Australia is still on it. I might keep it till the last moment for a  “Grand Final”! An ultimate “Bucket List Done” celebration travel! Even though I am pretty sure, travel bucket lists can never be totally accomplished. It is dark magic at work which keep them getting longer. 🙂
