Still daydreaming about that bucket list vacation but can’t seem to make it reality?

We got you! All you need is a little time, a solid place to take notes, and a whole lot of imagination.

Follow the tips below to start your travel bucket list today!

1) Choose Your Method.

There are a lot of ways to keep a bucket list ranging from a notebook, to a digital document, to even a jar full of notes. The important thing is that whatever you choose, you use. You will want to look at this on a regular basis so make sure it is something that will be easy for you to access. Digital documents (like Google docs are great because you can easily add things like images or links. And they are easy to share with your regular travel mate and your travel agent.

2) Make a List of Where You Have Been

Thinking about past vacations and what you liked (and didn’t like) is a great way to get started. If you're traveling as a couple this is even more important. You might want to share previous adventures with each other, or agree that exploring things that are completely new are the way to go. Either way, having this list will further the discussion. If you area solo traveler, then this will help you determine what is really meaningful when it comes to your travel desires.

3) Next, List Your Destinations

This is the fun step. Use your imagination. At this point, don’t hold back due to time or financial concerns, just list all the places you have ever dreamed of. Where did you want to go when you were 6 years old? Or 10, or 16? Or maybe just last week? Of course, you should make sure you include the places that have always been on your wish list. Remember, this is not the time to hold back. If you need advice, this is a great time to contact your travel agent and ask them what the newly discovered destinations are. You don’t want to miss out.
