BucketlistIn this generation, technology, and the internet makes traveling a lot easier. You will see your friends setting off somewhere to go travel for a couple of weeks whereas some of them are trying to at least cross one or two off their travel bucket list.
Have you been fancying making your travel bucket list but having zero ideas how to start? Or maybe you have been traveling for quite some time now and looking for new motivation and inspiration?

1. How to Create your Travel Bucket List

What kind of Traveler are you?
First and foremost, ask yourself; What kind of traveler are you? Does skydiving or bungee jumping makes your heart beat fast due to excitement? Or does it make your head shake because it sounds insane? Is trekking to famous mountains your dream or does it make you feel like it is boring and lame?
There are tons of type of travelers, the best way to start you bucket list is to identify which one are you.

Brainstorm your dreams
Now that you know what type of traveler you are, set it aside. Focus on what are your dream destinations or activities. Be honest, don’t think about sounding silly, just be yourself. Use a brainstorming activity like free-writing and then organize into an Affinity Diagram using Post-it Notes. Sailing in Greece was on my bucket list before. At one point it may have sounded too romantic or like a teenager‘s dream, but I can cross it off my list now. The pleasure of running a line through those letters was great.

Sit with your Computer
Do you still remember what type of traveler are you? Have you listed down your dreams? If yes to both, let us take this to the next level.
Start with a clean paper, from the type of traveler you are, navigate through the web to find out activities or experiences or destinations that will fit your model. Pick up some great ideas to add to your list. After that, take your “Dream List”, decide which dreams you still crave to do.

Baby steps
Let’s start with something easy. Maybe some of the activities on your list are expensive or not easy to obtain. Do some baby steps by choosing which are possible to do soon; located near where you live, cheap and easy access.

Use a prioritization tool to help guide you with your decision.

Reaching Your Goals
Prioritize your travel goals by using a prioritization matrix. From here you can start gathering information about your “Do it now”; where to do, how far, how expensive, etc. Prioritization will tell you where you have to focus on saving money to be able to do it. It will require you to give up some Friday nights out, or other splurges will get less attention. Take this as your goal which you need to reach.

Dreams Do Come True
Here, you can clearly see the activities or experiences on your list that will be a challenge; 6 months backpacking, trekking through the Himalayas, move to another country, or be a remote worker.The level of your saving needs some level ups; this will be your top priority and not buying popular and new released mobile phone. When I was planning my trip to England, Friday nights turned into Netflix moments, and I did not need a new phone since my current phone was still doing its job. I did live frugally to save up money. My priorities changed, and my excitement grew as each day passed. After a year of next to nothing luxury, I was sitting on my flight to England where I traveled for a month; it was one of the best decisions I ever made and the best thing I did for myself.

Update your bucket list regularly.

The painful fact is, there is no easy way to reach our goals. We have to work on it; we have to stop dreaming. Instead, we should do something to make it happen.
