What’s on Your Bucket List? | Sycamore Senior Photographer

Have you stared your bucket list? I like to think of a bucket list as less of a morbid thing (a list you make of things you want to do before you die), and more an exciting list of things to look forward to and accomplish! I’ve had an ongoing bucket list for travel that I’ve been working on for quite some time. Our family all loves different climates, so we have to come together and decide which destinations are at the top of our lists! My son and I love the sun and the sand, so we always want to head to warmer destinations, while my daughter and hubby love traversing overseas. In recent years, we have checked Jamaica and Curacao off our list. Since it’s spring break, it’s the perfect time to kick back and dream about travel (or, to pack up and head somewhere!).

Three other places we would love to travel are:

-London/Paris: I’ve always wanted to ride the Chunnel Train between the two…it seems like such a fun adventure to be underwater!

-Palermo, Sicily – Italy: I’d love to see where my family originated, and to visit relatives…this place holds lots of family history for me.

-Boston, Mass. This has been on our list for years, but another destination always seems to win out. I want to see the historical side, including the Freedom Trail, Fenway Park, and the Boston Tea Party Ship and museum.

Where have you always wanted to travel? Do you have your own travel bucket list?
Wishing everyone a fun, safe, and wonderful spring break!
