There should be a twelve-step program for people addicted to travel guides. I did a quick count of books in The Closet today and calculated that travel books outnumbered “reading” books in our house 3:1. It’s a good thing I didn’t move my cookbooks with me. The household book ratio would be even more bizarre. Add in my travel blog/ flash sale reading list and my general need to do everything RIGHT NOW…I have trouble prioritizing my travel dreams.
When we moved to London, The Mister and I vowed we would make the most of living in a location that makes European travel as easy as traveling to …say…Vermont from Connecticut for the weekend. The question is where to go and when and how to prioritize. For me, the consummate list-maker, the best way to organize this is with a travel Bucket List.
I have a list of places I would like to visit/re-visit in the UK, but those are blessedly easy to do at the last minute since train travel is SO EASY here. Other places require a little more planning. I would love to visit these cities on weekend trips, a la Easy Jet, Eurostar and last minute flash sales:
I really, really want to see the Northern Lights, but I’m not sure that’s doable on a weekend. Am I missing any? How many weekends are in a year?
My “dream trip” would include an African safari and a week in the Maldives. Then, of course, there is New Zealand and Australia. And Tibet. And Iceland (summer or winter?) and, and…. Do you have a travel bucket list? I’d love to hear what you’ve added to your list!
