I am a huge list maker.  I make lists for everything, to do, to read, to travel, to see.  My lists have lists.  So I saw a few fellow bloggers doing a 101 in 1001 list and thought it looked fun.  Plus coming up with 101 goals, wishes, to dos big and small seems pretty simple to me.  Checking things off of my to do’s or goal lists always makes me feel such a sense of accomplishment, and just having these lists help me to avoid procrastination.

So here are my 101 (not quite so many since I am sure I will find more to add in the roughly 3 years I have to accomplish them!) things I wish to do, see, experience, accomplish, whatever! in the next 1001 days.

So there ya have it, my giant list.  This post will get lost somewhere in the archives but I will be updating it regularly as I am able to check things off and add more too it.

I’ve traveled very few places in my almost 30 (yikes!) years.  Mexico a couple times and to a few states nearby, but my heart literally aches to see new  places.  Though I love being grounded in a small town I have a traveling soul.  Simply daydreaming of far off places makes me happy.  Of course going to them is WAY better!  There’s just something  about being in a new place, completely unrecognizable, shocking your senses with new sights, sounds, and tastes.   If you took me on vacation, honestly I would probably be happy going anywhere. (You have no idea how truly excited I get just taking a camping trip or going to a city I have never been to)  Travis always teases me as we are watching TV, saying “Let me guess? You want to go there too!?”

So through the years my daydreaming has acquired a Wanderlust-list of my very most desired spots to see.   My list is ever changing and growing as I watch the travel channel (love you Anthony Bourdain!) or read a new travel memoir.  Sadly, I have come to terms with the fact that many of these places I will never lay eyes on because they are not the safest travel destinations in these times.  But a girl can dream right?

Travel, greece, italy, austria, turkey, amsterdam, russia, germany, morocco, egyptPIN


My list is not limited to these!  If you would like to see more of my Wander-list check out my Wanderlust pinterest board, where you can also see where these photos originated from.  Where would you most like to visit?
