Wanderlust Bucket List

Most of the time when I am scrolling through Tumblr or Pinterest I see images of these far off incredible places, places that I dream to visit; pictures of vast forests or sparkling seas sit on my Tumblr page all day long, and all I can do is lust after them. When I was younger I used to think bucket lists were a stupid idea; I mean lets face it, its just one giant list of things you want to do, places you want to see, and often times people don’t actually accomplish their list.

But after finding myself day after daydreaming of traveling I gave in. I finally decided to create a list of everything I want to see from national parks to beaches; my very own list, my ’7 wonders of the world’, only now that list has exceeded far beyond 7. Creating a list helps me to visualize my goals, I feel that I will visit every place on my bucket list even if it grows to be 7 pages long! I have organized mine by continent: North America, Europe and so on. Having a list makes me want to accomplish my goals and see all of these enchanting places.

I encourage you to create a list of your own, keep a copy on your phone and laptop, anytime you see an amazing place, city, park, you want to visit jot it down! It doesn’t have to be just places, it could be any sort of adventure, whether it’s skydiving, swimming with sharks, hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro, do not limit yourself!

Below is my current list of national parks, deserts, beaches, and more. Be sure to share your bucket list ideas in the comments!
