Wanderlust describes an irresistible desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world to understand one’s very existence.
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…
Europe, where I managed to visit some of the beautiful cities and still many more yet to explore.
Somehow after New York, America no longer has the same pull over me as before, except..
8/10 countries still pending after three years! WHAT HAVE I BEEN DOING? Shall make it a point yearly to re-visit this post to inspire my following year’s travel plans!
