These are all ideas that I think have added to my travelling experiences in the past, so I thought I’d share them with you.

But that won’t stop me from recommending 16 things to add to the bucket lists that you inevitably have. Continue reading “16 Things to Add Your Bucket List Right Now”
The wanderlust is real right now.
I’ve taken about half a dozen Buzzfeed quizzes telling me about my next travel destination or the type of traveler I am. I’ve talked to friends about potential trips to New Zealand, Iceland, and Canada. I’ve looked up flights to Cuba for Spring Break.
But I also don’t have the time or money to travel.
I know, excuses, excuses. But every once in a while, it is true. I need time to get a degree and for my wallet to recuperate. So instead, I’ve come up with a few ways to cope with the undying sense of wanderlust.
