The start of a new year is a great chance to reflect on where you've been and where you want to be going next... Sometimes, that can be figurative - meaning the place that you want to get to in life. Other times, it can be more literal - the place that you've been dreaming of travelling to and finally plan to tick off the bucket list! We think a lot about both quite often, but for the sake of this blog post, we wanted to share those places that we really want to see and the things that we really want to experience - and just how much of each we still have to tick off our list!
Here's our ultimate travel bucket list, with must visit places and amazing experiences!
