Travel Bucketlist

Traveling! They call it LUXURY, I call it LIFE…
And this is my mantra:
Dream. Explore. Discover. Learn. Live. Read. Eat. Find a travel buddy. Be with someone. Fall madly in love. Have fun and make each moment perfect. Because LIFE revolves! It does not stop in the workplace or in the house, there’s a bigger picture out there waiting to be discovered!
I love to travel because it opens wider opportunities for learning and new discoveries. It enriches wisdom and develops self-confidence. Knowledge becomes wider and experience becomes richer. It makes life more fulfilling and incredibly amusing.
One thing I love about travel planning is the excitement of choosing a holiday destination and the fun of drafting an itinerary, it revitalizes my boring days and energizes my tired soul. 

When traveling, I never worry too much about money because I am a budget traveler. I always stick on my budget plan. I never worry also where to sleep or where to dine, I can sleep anywhere even in a shabby transient inn and I can eat anything. I am not choosy! What I am after is the discovery and the unique experience I would gain.


I wish to write a book about my travel exploits someday, complete with pictures and vivid descriptions of the magical places I visited, thus, planning for another road trip or aspiring a grand foreign travel is very crucial. Hope to invest also on a decent and practical digital camera to realize this goal.

Here’s my dreamy travel bucket list.
Never mind if the list sounds far-reaching or too ambitious, the most important thing is – I have a goal to work on, a sense of direction to follow, a hope to cling to and unwavering drive to make things happen. It gives me a reason to be motivated with life, to work hard, to find ways and to keep things going.
