Dream List


UPDATE: Following our controversial “Why I want to tear up your Bucket List” post, we decided to change the title to “Dream List”. We don’t want to be guided by a list of things we need to do before we literally kick the bucket.

Instead we have come up with a list that we will add to from time to time, about dream places, or activities we want to do. Offer us some suggestions too on Facebook!

Some of these have been in the back of my mind for years, and that’s why I have added them. Even if they have been completed, while others in the list continue to evolve. 

Some are just reminders and/or tips to ourselves to make sure we get the best out of every trip. I also don’t think that you should have a set number of items in your bucket dream list. It should continue to grow as you learn about new experiences that you want to see or do, and get the desire to try new travel adventures. 

Fingers crossed we see them all and having a list will help us plan our next couples adventure travel trip.
