Creating a Travel Bucket List

Science tells us that we are far more likely to achieve our goals if we write them down. Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at the Dominican University in California, found that you become 42% more likely to achieve your goals and dreams, simply by writing them down on a regular basis.

So if you want to see more of the world, writing your travel bucket list is a good place to start. A travel bucket list is fun create and it will inspire you to reach your goals. It will also help you focus your efforts when you start planning your trips.

Quick guide on how to get started

  • Write down all the locations you've been to, highlighting the places you've enjoyed the most

  • From your favourites, see if there are any common themes, such as architectural wonders, areas of great natural beauty or modern cities. This can reveal the types of travel you enjoy the most and can inspire you for your future adventures

  • Write down the trips you already had in mind

  • Do research based on your travel preferences and find more places you want to see

  • Write them all down in your Travel Journal, diary or even in the notes on your phone

  • Prioritise the destinations you want to see the most

  • Look into the logistics, kid friendly activities and costs for your trips

  • Start saving with a dedicated account for travelling

  • Start planning and keep watch for travels deals that match your target places

Now you’re ready to cross off those bucket list destinations.
