My Travel Bucket List
Hey guys, today’s post is about my travel bucket list. Just taking a small break from the theme of traveling with kids. In this post, I want to talk about my travel dreams. Traveling for me is not just a leisure activity. But it’s an emotional experience which stays with me in my memories forever.
For people who like exploring new places, traveling becomes their teacher & inspiration. For me, travel doesn’t only mean visiting new places, it’s much more than that. I develop deep bonds with those places, the mountains, the beaches, the cities, and the people.
When I am traveling, I feel deeply connected to my soul.
My Travel Memories
I was only 11 years old when I realized there’s a traveler in me. I used to watch a travel series every day which was aired on the Discovery channel in the ’90s – Travelers. And, I remember that was the first time I made a travel journal of all the places I wanted to visit.
The desire to travel was so strong that I would even argue with my parents to allow me to go on school trips, even if there was no one going from my friends.
My first school trip was to Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary when I was in the nursery, just 3.5 years old. My first flight experience was from my school trip to Agra when I was in 1st std. And, one of the best memories of my school trips is from Goa (11th std). I was the only science student traveling with the arts and commerce sections & I knew no one. It was the trip when I made some of my best friends during my last days in school.
I am all about planners and journals.
When it comes to travel planning, I like to keep a travel journal where I maintain my travel bucket list. Until a decade ago, all I wanted to do was travel to all the famous tourist places in the world. However, when I first traveled to Kerala with my mother in 2010, I realized the true beauty of a place doesn’t lie only in popular destinations.
Instead, it’s hidden from the general crowd & can be found only in off beaten paths. Since then, I make sure to find some off beaten unexplored destinations and add those in my travel itinerary.
I am lucky that my husband loves traveling as much as I do & now I see a traveler in my son too!
