My 2017 Bucket List

My 2017 Bucket List

With 2017 making its arrival, I think it is extremely important to set goals for yourself. And I don’t mean New Year’s Resolutions- those fall through by mid-January. I am thinking more along the lines of a bucket list… A list of things you hope and dream to accomplish in the new year.

I set out to write my bucket list: a list of all travel things I want to accomplish in 2017. Some may be a stretch, but they all will motivate me to get through the year and continue jet-setting.

    This is such a good idea! I have a lot of random lists but its so nice to see everything together, makes it seem more achievable! I don’t do bucket lists really but it seems like a fun way to get excited about the possibilities!

      Centering all my bucket list items around a theme of travel really helped me narrow it down to what was most important for me to try and accomplish last year!
