I’ve been reading a lot of posts about setting goals and looking back on your achievements but for me I like to look forward. Although I haven’t blogged in a while, I wanted to share my 2018 travel bucket list and long term travel goals! It would be too easy to list every country I want to go to as I want to go everywhere but this year I have some pretty exciting travel plans that I want to put into action.
This year I want to..
Travel somewhere alone
Stay in a country for more then a month
Start to learn a language and use it daily
Travel to at least 5 new countries!
Live and work abroad – this is the one I’m most excited about as I’m moving abroad to work in Europe for six months and I cannot wait!
Overall there are so many things that I want to do and a lot of them involve travel but here is what I can think of so far. These ones might take a little longer than a year and some of them are pretty adventurous for me but hopefully it’s going to be a fun 2018!
