Re: Do you have a travel bucket list? To see New York in all of its glory!

Message 71 of 113 (1,958 Views)

I've always wanted to go to Sweden, and since I have an author friend in Stockholm I should make plans. I've also wanted to go on a safari in Africa and ride an elephant in India. I'd also like to go on a yoga retreat in Tibet.

My biggest travel bucket list item - to finish seeing the remainder of America. Only 16 more states to go, and just one not on the mainland.

Well, I live in Kanab and all I can say is come visit. Kanab is a beautiful place.
Best Friends Sanctuary is welcoming and a true sanctuary for people as well as animals.

Travel is the top aspirational activity for people 50-plus according to research conducted by AARP and according to analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data. The new AARP Travel Bucket List survey found that 37% of Boomers have a travel bucket list. Of the 8 destinations on their travel bucket lists, half are domestic including Hawaii, Alaska, California, and Arizona.

 

What's on your travel bucket list?

Lot's of places to go.  Never been south of the equator.  Chile, Argentina, Patagonia appears to be dramatic, Costa Rica is diverse and fascinating. Tanzania for a Safari.  Australia, New Zealand, perhaps Tahiti or Fiji Island. 

 

Do I have a  Bucket list? No point to that unless you expect to pass on when you complete it.  I'd like to visit some places more than once.

Penny, if you do go I recommend that you make visits to Kinsale, a small Irish town on the coast and just southwest of Cork and Galway in northwest Ireland.  They are my two favorite places in west Ireland.

Ireland.  I first decided I wanted to go to Ireland because of the first trilogy I read by Nora Roberts set in Ireland.  Subsequent books have only reinforced that desire, including the "In Death" books written under her alias, JD Robb.  I do have Irish ancestors so that adds extra incentive.  Plus, it's just a beautiful place!

My goal is to visit all 50 states. I have been to 36 so far.  Will probably have to wait for retirement to see the rest.

I don't travel anymore.  I hitchhiked a couple of years in Washington state and Oregon.  Went on a college tour of the UK in '74 for a month.  

 

I keep my eye out for an occasional bus tour somewhere but haven't been anywhere for a couple of years.
