The bucket list for travel just keeps growing day by day- insatiable. This was a list I came up with when I was 24 years old, not too long ago. Then, I thought it might be a good idea to list down some of the places that I definitely have to visit before I hit the age of 30 (not that there’s anything wrong with the age, just that setting targets would help motivate the cause more!)

Starting close to home, places I have to make a point to visit in Asia-Australasia
