Our Travel Bucket List

our travel bucket list

We want to share our infamous travel bucket list with you today. We say infamous because we seem to reference this bucket list pretty often. That is because it means a lot to us. It’s almost like a life goals list- but a fun version!

Whenever we are planning a vacation, we turn to our travel bucket list to help us make our decision about where to go. 

Each time we can check off an item, it’s a blessing. We are thankful for each and every place God has created and allowed us to lay our eyes on. We like to think it’s the best bucket list for couples.

Read this and possibly use some of the items to create your very own travel bucket list!  (the blue ones have been completed)
