If you ask someone what they want to do before they die, they usually have a long list of things that appeal to them. For some people it can be a complex idea, like falling love, for others, it is something more concrete, like visiting a certain city. Because of the frailty and unpredictability of love, you can’t guarantee it will ever occur, but traveling is something you can make happen in your life.You can have whatever you want on your travel bucket list. But I still wanted to give you some awesome inspiration for upcoming trips.
Creating your travel bucket list means different things for different people. While you may have one set trip or destination in mind from your youth, there are countless other things you can add to it over the years. Never stop setting goals and planning if you want to continue an adventurous lifestyle for years. Included here are a few travel-related goals and dreams that you need to add to your bucket list.

The Top 5 Dreams to Put On Your Travel Bucket List
Travel Somewhere Exotic
For many people, their dream travel destination involves a remote tropical island. You may have constantly dreamed of a week in Bora-Bora or even just a cliched Mexican resort vacation. Everyone should have the opportunity to travel somewhere exotic in their lifetime, so pick a place and set the date!
Travel Somewhere Comfortable
Traveling to exotic locales with no familiarity of the language can be exciting, but not terribly relaxing. Add another travel destination to your list where you know the language, but want to experience the sights or cuisine. It is guaranteed to be a more comfortable, and relaxing, trip that allows you to see something new without stretching too far.
Travel With a Friend
Traveling with another person is a completely different experience than going it alone. When two people have to work together to create itineraries, pool finances, and navigate surprise circumstances, you are bound to come closer together. Travel with a friend, spouse, or other loved one to create memories and a bond that will last a lifetime.
Just as important as companion travels are those you do solo. Traveling solo is a far scarier experience because you are embarking on an adventure to an unfamiliar place where you don’t know anyone. Yes, solo travel brings with it certain risks, but the reward can be incredible. You will meet more people, have an experience that is 100% you, and get to know yourself better through the journey.
For many people, the ideal travel experience is a long-term, around the world journey, that lasts upwards of a year. In reality, any travel that lasts over six months could be considered long-term, and maybe more doable for the average person. Long-term travel requires industrious and careful planning, as well as flexibility when plans change. Getting out of your daily grind for a big travel experience can change your life, and may need to be number one on your bucket list!
