Six Places I Want To See Within Six Years: An Updated List


In November 2016 I shared a post about six places that I wanted to see within six years. At the time, I had just been through something and I thought about all the places (which were and are somewhat exotic to me) that I wanted to plant my feet on. But you know what? Most of that list has changed. Although I do still want to see the places I listed, I am endeavouring to go somewhere this year as things have improved financially (and hey, you only live once, right?! I’ve got to make it count)!

Yes, things have changed! I now keep a medium-sized bucket list journal that details travel (and life) experiences that I want to have. So, upon considering that original list, there are frankly some places that I want to see more than others. In short…

  1. I want to see more of Canada and the U.S.
  2. I want to go someplace really far off! 
  3. I want a travel buddy/companion to share memories with.

So, onto the updated list. I hope you enjoy…

1.  Alberta, Canada
