My Travel Bucket List

travel bucket list

This is my travel bucket list. I captured travel destinations, cultural attractions, activities or special occasions I would like to see and experience around the world.

Let’s see how it works out with making this list a reality step by step. So happy that I can cross the visit to Rio and the Copacabana already off the list (and add another wish to see it again. Damn ;-). But that’s travel life I guess. I hope you find a place or two you have not thought about before and add it to your list. Or start you own bucket list if you don’t have one yet…
