And then there’s the never ending list in my head that grows with every new travel experience we check off: we want to get PADI certified for diving. Go to Ireland. Partake in Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. Do a cross-country road trip through the U.S.A., try rafting in Idaho, see a lantern festival in Thailand, fall foliage in Japan. Visit the Grand Canyon. The list goes on and on.

If you could check one travel experience off your bucket list tomorrow, what would it be? We’d love to hear from you.
