We all making bucket lists for things we want to do in life. Some of us want to try something new each new, some of us want to work in the top PR companies in city of Toronto, and some of us want to travel the world.

Travel Advice – A list of how you should finally make that bucket list:

1. Map Out Your Bucket List
If you don’t already own a map, buy one! Hang the map on your wall and start making some of the places you have been to. Use pins to mark the places or just scratch them off. This will help you identify the countries you haven’t been to.

2. Forget New Year’s Resolution, Write Down the Travel Experience You Want to Have
Every new year presents a chance to have fresh resolutions, try something different this time. Instead of the usual resolutions list, come up with a list of experiences you want to have that particular year. With the same commitment, you put to meet your resolutions, exert the same force to your travel list.

3. Plan Rewards
Plan some of the rewards you would have if you check off an experience from your list. Rewards will make it more fun, and that will also make your more focused towards achieving some of the things on the list.

4. Get a Glass Jar Fund
Start working towards making your list a reality by saving for the travels. Get a glass jar, put in money every week, or month. Put the jar in clear view to serve as a reminder of why you’re putting money it. As the jar adds up, so does the motivation.

5. Look for Travel Inspiration
Read as many travel books as you can, follow travel pages on social media platforms. Other’s people’s experiences tend to stir up some of our own travel desires. Books and travel social media pages will also give you ideas on what you should when you get to travel destination.

6. Get an Accountability Partner
It could be either your friend, sibling or even parents, whomever you prefer to make sure you loop them in on your plan. Give them a copy of your bucket list. They will help you be accountable. Look for someone who will effortlessly push you to achieve your goals. You could have them be your travel buddy, once you start to check off your bucket list.

7. Start Local
You don’t have to start big; you can always start by visiting some of the local sites you have in your country. Most people have no idea what monuments, sites, wild reserves, or museums they have in their own country. Let local tourism nurture your travel inspiration; you will be surprised by some of the incredible places you will experience in your country.

8. Start Checking Off Several Bucket List Items
Start by selecting a destination that will offer multiple items on the bucket list. This is an excellent way to stretch your dollar and trip. For example, if you’re looking to visit as many national parks as possible, trying heading to Utah or Africa where you can check off the Mighty five in a single trip.

9. Consider Alternatives
Think about visiting alternative place if you can’t make the time or budget work for a specified destination you may have had in mind. Look for places that have the same setting you were looking for within your budget and available time.
