My Travel Bucket List

I’ve only been home five days, and since I don’t have any upcoming travel scheduled (for a month anyway), it seems appropriate I would dream a little! Over the past couple years, I’ve slowly been accumulating a list of experiences and places I’d like to do and visit. This started before my epic year of travel, when I not only struck a few off but I added some I never anticipated!

So here it is, my bucket list as of February 2016. What’s on your bucket list? I’d love to read about your experiences and get your suggestions if you’ve visited any of the below!

    1. Your northern road trips look like they’ve been downright amazing. I already had the Yukon on my bucket list, but your your post about canoeing under the midnight sun and Alaska definitely makes me want to go even more. I had no idea how much of Alaska was south of the Yukon. I guess I need to pay closer attention to a map! Looks like a great trip – did you camp along the way?

  1. Love it! I need to do this! 06 girls in California perhaps? I think so! Top of my list is Scandinavia but it keeps getting pushed back as I want to have the time to do it right. I should just make it a priority! Make sure to add some snowboard destinations to that list!

    1. I always thought it would be wicked to snowboard in Transylvania. I think I saw it in a Snowboard Canada magazine somewhere? I learned to snowboard in the Alps. Going back would be stellar. Or maybe to the mountains in the U.S. somewhere? See how they compare to our Rockies maybe?! Scandinavia would be a beautiful trip. How long would you want to go for?

      I love the idea of an 06 girls trip to California! Count me in!
