In the hustle and bustle of life we all need to leave room for dreams and aspirations. For at least a short second, forget the 4×6 cubicles, the tyrant bosses, and life’s tedious obligations and dream. What would you do today if money was no object and work wasn’t an issue? Where would you go? Who would you take a long for the ride?
Before you get caught up in the work day, take a few seconds to pick out 3 Travel Bucket List activities you want to accomplish before you leave this world. Make these your goals to get through this Monday; hell, think BIG, make them some of your goals to accomplish in life. Give them the purpose they deserve.
Here are mine:

Obviously this is not me and that is not my husband. For one the man in this picture has hair and the girl is a size 2…neither of which describes me nor my hubby. However, we envision ourselves like this lovely couple- relaxing in a Tahitian Paradise. Originally this was going to be our Honeymoon destination but due to time and funds restraints we had to change the plan. Now, it is on our bucket list…One day my size 14 and my hubby’s bald head will enjoy this magnificent island.

We want to see Greece-at night, during the day, at sunrise and sunset! I can’t wait to one day sit in one of these incredible villas with my husband and watch the sunset. We want to dive into the breathtaking water and eat their heavenly meals.
Campania, Italy Picture courtesy of I Like to Waste my Time
We dream of visiting the amazing country of Italy one day. Ever since I saw the movie Under the Tuscan Sun, I fell in love with the idea of Italy. I had always had a love affair with a country I knew little about and then after seeing it on the big screen, my amore was only solidified. I want to eat oysters in the town of Positano, pictured above. My husband and I want to walk the streets socializing with the locals while sharing a gelato. We want to visit St. Peter’s Square and Vatican City. I want to attend Mass in a church older than my great, great, great grandpa. We want to have romantic dinners under the Italian sky and visit The Colosseum. We want to experience the magic of the Grotta Azura and so much more.
Do I have you dreaming of your travels yet? We all want to accomplish so much in life. I for one want to be a stay-at-home-author- mom one day and continue to be the best wife I can. I want to become a grandma and I want to change the world. Those are all great bucket list goals. But today I selfishly challenge you to focus a little on you and your dreams of traveling. Whether single, attached, married, or somewhere in between- Where in the World do YOU want to Go?
