A Personalized Bucket List Destinations

A Personalized Bucket List Destinations

Ok, I know the internet is overflowing with lists like “50 Places to Visit Before You Die.” With the increasing accessibility of global destinations, many of us are able to check off more places on popular lists. However, I find making my own lists more motivating and inspiring. It helps me focus on forming plans to make these personal goals happen. This short list might change over time and is not in order of priority.

  • Rwanda: Frankly, there are more than a few places in Africa I’d like to visit. Rwanda jumps out because I’ve been sponsoring a girl in a local community there. I’ve been watching her grow from a distance. Her career choice has changed from teacher to doctor. My greatest hope for her is that she feels empowered to do anything she chooses to when she grows up and is able to actualize positive change in her community.
  • Patagonia: When I first saw a photo of Torres del Paine I knew I had to go there one day. The combination of mountains and water cast a special spell on me. For me, the journey is not about conquering the mountains, but rather witnessing their magnificence. It’s my goal to learn about the environment and the people while leaving a minimal footprint in this striking wilderness. : When I first saw a photo of Torres del Paine I knew I had to go there one day.

  • Solomon Islands: This place seems worlds away from our daily life. It has the magic of taking its visitors back in time and into a less developed, one-of-a-kind natural environment. It’s often in places like this that I’m able to view life with fresh and less artificial perspectives, to rejuvenate creativity and gain new appreciation.

Now, I’d like to hear what’s on your bucket list and why? Feel free to tag @tjuladesign on social media when you share.
