The reason why travel is so deeply rooted within me still puzzles me to this day, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. I started creating this list a while ago to set myself some (very ambitious, yet pretty absurd) goals, and sure enough, my list just keeps growing and growing.
Although I might not be able to visit every place on this list in my lifetime, I’m happy I already got the privilege to cross many of them off. Here is my ever-changing and ever-growing bucket list:
