100 Travel Experiences on my Bucket List

Travel is the only thing you buy which makes you richer.

– Anon

Travel has always been one of my passions and I’ve spent years dreaming about packing in my job and grabbing a one way flight to everywhere and anywhere. Now that we are finally in a position where we have cleared our credit card, we can afford to put aside a little every month so I’ve been spending some time searching for some bargain city breaks this year. Gavin has booked to take us away to Paris for my birthday (providing my replacement passport arrives in time #prayfortanya) and I have a couple more trips in the pipeline. I’ve previously posted my UK bucket list for destinations and experiences but I wanted to compile my list for all over the world all in one place so I can bear this in mind when planning those trips. Hopefully one day soon I’ll be able to start ticking more and more off the list! So in no particular order here’s 100 travel experiences on my bucket list.
