Last year I wrote a Travel Bucket List from a very different place. I didn’t really have goals for the year ahead or New Year’s resolutions but as you can see from this blog post here, I did have a few things I wanted to achieve.
Travel somewhere alone – Yes I went to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam on my own in February and March 2018
Stay in a country for more than a month – Yes I lived in Tenerife from April until November 2018
Start to learn a language and use it daily – I started to learn Spanish but I didn’t quite use it daily unless you count Gracias! I’m not very good at speaking it but I can understand a lot more Spanish now.
Travel to at least 5 new countries! – Did this one too, in 2018 I went to a few new places but not sure they really count and you’ll see why. I went to Barcelona and I’d never been before, (see my photo diary here), but I don’t count it as I have been to Spain before. Then I went to Thailand (1), Cambodia (2) and Vietnam (3) and you can read more about that here. I stopped over in Dubai on the way but I never left the airport so don’t think that counts. After that I then lived in Tenerife (4) and I’d never been there before either. In December I moved to Andorra (5) for my winter season and it was my first time in Andorra.
Not too bad considering I spent eight months of 2018 in Tenerife! This year, instead of just putting up a list of countries in the world, I’ve got a bit more of a clear plan / bucket list as I now work seasons abroad so they’re pretty set in terms of how long I’ll be places. Here are some experiences I would like to achieve and think most of them should be possible especially with another summer in Europe.
I have such a long list of things to do so this is just ten things to create a little travel bucket list. 2019 is going to be so much fun, I’m loving Andorra and then looking forward to another summer abroad before seeing what is next. What is on your bucket list or travel list? Any New Year’s resolutions?
I post once a week covering topics such as solo travel, working and living abroad and also creating Gabriella’s Guides to places I have been. I cover topics under the following categories such as Planning and Packing, The Travel Diary, Travel Inspiration, Photo Diaries, Gabriella’s Guides and Working Abroad.
