The Ultimate Travel To Do List

I’m a huge fan of to-do lists. I write one every day, and they help me focus my energies on what I want to accomplish. I’m also a huge fan of world travel. So making a list of all the things I’d like to accomplish in my travel lifetime makes a lot of sense. Quite the motivator to look at this and see just how much I still need to see and do! Here is my ultimate travel to do list -Evan Kubitschek publisher of the travel blog expeditionevan.com

  1. Some great bucket list items!! Many of these are on my own too! We have visited Angkor Wat during our backpacking time around South East Asia and it was incredible! I have also seen a Liverpool home game – but as a Chelsea fan (sorry!)

  2. Great list. I especially like the surf one. I did that in Costa Rica a year ago and it’s definitely interesting. I have some more work to do to actually consider myself even a novice.

    My personal bucket list is focused more on snow related items just because that is my passion and life’s work. From heli-skiing to visiting AK to Chile during the winter those are the items I’m trying to check off.
