One Mad Life’s Travel Bucket List

Do you have a bucket list? It may be traveling, like this, or it may be experiences like our second bucket list. If you have one, is it written out? How often do you look at it? If you are like most others, you may not look at it unless you are day dreaming. What if you used it to plan your trips?

One Mad Life’s bucket lists are used to plan our trips across the world. If we want to go somewhere, we look at the list. Why go somewhere random when you can save a bit more and go to somewhere you dream about? After we pick a place, we use our second bucket list to determine a few things we might want to do. Using this method, we are able to make each trip a dream come true (literally).

For each destination, we have a date in mind, the cost understood, and the requirements researched. This means that we know about how long we need to save and what we would have to do to travel to this place for a vacation. If we’ve been there it’s in bold and linked to an article about our trip. There will be a date next to it, that’s when we made the trip. Family Trip means we are going with our family (not just MadMan and MadLady.)
