Do you have things you want to do? What are they? When you are planning a trip do you think about them? Most people have a bucket list in their heads, some have it written out. Many don't think about it for months or years at a time. We used to be like that. We changed when we decided that vacations should be simple. We thought about how we had a list of places we wanted to go and a list of things we wanted to do, but always struggle in saving for and planning vacations and activities. When we created our new bucket list, we began using them to plan vacations. We began adding dates, locations, and costs in. We began to use of bucket list for more than dreaming. We use it as a plan. This list is the second part of how we plan our trips. We look here for what we want to do after we have chosen where to go from our traveling bucket list. What's the point of having a list if you don't use it?
Welcome to One Mad Life's Travel Bucket List! This post has all the places we one day wish to visit. Each place we have visited is linked to our story of visiting and is bold. As we fill this list, it will also get longer. Never stop exploring! Do you have somewhere we should visit? Tell us, we'll add it to the list!
In December of 2015 MadMan and I went to New Orleans for my 22nd birthday. He'd been before when he was young; however, I had never been. Typical for December, it rained most days so there was little chance for scenic photos. The rain; however, didn't stop us from really enjoying the drinks, history, and food that was around.
We're big on adventure, but we're also trying to save for financial independence at the same time.

There are tips for flying, staying, traveling, adventuring, and even cruising. Let's Begin.
I live in Atlanta. I've also vacationed to Atlanta when I lived in Central Georgia. MadMan spent many weekends in Atlanta before he moved here for college. Needless to say we have a little knowledge on where to go, what to eat, and where to stay.
It turns out I am not half bad at snowboarding and neither is MadMan. Last year, we traveled to the mountains and went snowboarding. I almost broke my knee, lost my sunglasses, and had so much fun. MadMan almost broke his tail bone and also enjoined himself immensely. So maybe that was a lie... we both suck. Here's the story. First, let's set the scene...
In May of 2017 we visited Portland, Oregon for a week. It was rainy, it was cold, and it was fun. We did lots of walking, visited Forest Park, we walked around the Zoo and the Japanese Gardens, toured a sub, and ate lots of food. That's not to say that it was all fun and games, we also visited many apartments as we plan on moving there one day. Here's our feeling on the city, a guide, and photos.
