This is the only list you finish and suddenly it gets more items on it. It is never ending and addictive once you get the thirst for travel there is no way back! It occupies your mind and motivates you to accomplish the list.
It is a tool for travel and it drives your mind to actually go on a trip. Once you have a couple of items in your bucket list it is engraved on your mind starting to manifest your desires. You have to finish the list, and after you have those amazing memories the adrenalin gets you and you create some more lists. And the items on the new lists become longer. You get the cravings for more and you created an addiction, however this addiction is a healthy one. It is better than any drugs and satisfies you on many different levels. First of all, you go and see something you wanted for a long time and now it is the time you will get it. Pure excitement. Secondly, you will indulge in beautiful places and cultures, which opens your mind about the world and you will start to care about your environment. You will be interested in all the aspects of travel including making friendships and engage in conversations with strangers and locals. You will look for the authentic not the touristic. And the third level is the feeling of accomplishment. You crossed three items on your list? Well…you just created some more memories in your life nobody can take away from you! Well done, carry on what you are doing.
My bucket list – once I wrote it down – contained Hawaii, Bora Bora and Japan. As you can see it was very simple with only a couple of items and exactly in the same order. So, finally it was penciled on a paper and surprisingly within less than one year I got to visit Japan. I had a chance to look around in Nagasaki, Kobe and even Tokyo, while another half year later I managed to visit Bora Bora and my old time favorite Hawaiian Islands including Lahaina in Maui, White Sand Beach in Kona, Kauai, Hilo and Honolulu. All these I got to see within one year! So now I have a new list and it has much more than three items.
Also, bucket lists are not just for travel it can motivate you to be creative, active and ambitious towards achieving your goals in life.
