TRAVEL WISH LIST 2024

THE ULTIMATE OVER 50’s TRAVEL WISH LIST 2024

Do you have a travel wish list for 2024 and beyond into your retirement years?

I certainly do and I’m ticking off and adding to it all the time!

Creating a travel wish list – or travel bucket list – is a fun and interesting way not only to prioritise your travel goals but to help realise your own personal goals and ambitions too.

Just like you – every person’s travel wish list will be unique!

Your travel wish list will lend itself to your own personal preferences for cold, temperate, or tropical places, for adrenaline-pumping adventures or for stillness and tranquillity.

Are you fascinated by history and architecture natural wonders?

Do you prefer beach destinations or big city adventures?

Are you a foodie who wants to explore culinary hotspots around the world?

Do you enjoy cultural immersion and exploring heritage sites?

Do you love hiking and outdoor adventures?

There is one thing travel wish lists will always have in common and it is that the journey or experience will leave a lasting impression on those who embark on them.

I like to think of my own travel wish lists as two entirely separate lists.

One that’s for travel destinations and one that’s for travel experiences.

BUCKET LIST TRAVEL for your travel wish list

A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO CREATING YOUR OWN TRAVEL LISTS

Brainstorm Destinations: Start by brainstorming destinations that you’ve always wanted to visit.

Do Your Research: Once you have a list of potential destinations, research each one carefully to learn more. Consider in your travel planning such factors as attractions, activities, climate, culture, safety, travel requirements, budget, travel time, seasonality, etc.

Consider Your Interests: Tailor your wish list to include destinations that align with your interests and your passions.

Set Your Priorities: Prioritize your list based on your preferences and priorities.

Include Specific Experiences: Consider specific experiences or activities that you want to have in each destination. Whether it’s swimming with dolphins, visiting ancient ruins, or attending a music festival, adding specific experiences to your wish list will make it more tangible and exciting.

Create a Visual Wishlist: Visual aids can help make your travel wish list more engaging and motivating. Create a vision board or digital collage featuring images of your dream destinations, activities, and experiences. You can also use platforms like Pinterest to create virtual travel boards.

Review and Update: Review your travel wish list regularly and update it as needed. As your interests and priorities change, you may discover new destinations or experiences to add to your list. Keep your list dynamic and flexible to accommodate changes over time.

Take Action: Once you have a travel wish list in place, start taking steps to turn your travel goals and travel dreams into reality. Set goals, create a savings plan, and start planning your first trip.

Remember that your travel wish list is meant to inspire and motivate you to explore the world, so don’t be afraid to dream big and pursue your passions!
