An Updated Travel Wish List

When I came home from Australia in the summer of 2011, my head was filled with all these new travel ideas. I even wrote down a list of the ten things that I wanted to do at some point in my life. By now I have checked a couple things off that list and although this list still applies, my priorities have shifted a little bit.

For example, I still want to travel from Moscow to Beijing on a train and I also still would like to go explore the cradle of civilization in the Middle East. However, these are some of the things that have dropped a few places on my travel wish list. (I hate the concept of bucket lists.)

It’s been two years since I wrote down that list after all, and at this moment there are a bunch of other destinations that I’d rather visit first.

It looks like I still have some traveling to do though. GREAT!

Been There, Done That

Cycle to the North Cape

Cross a Sea on a Cargo Ship

There are two reasons I created this new travel wish list:

1. As a personal motivation and reminder to actually go visit these places;
2. I love making lists (See, I even made a short list of reasons why a made a list).
