  1. Intrepid/Suntrek do a great 8 day trip that takes in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco. You can camp four of the nights as well, so that would tick a few things off your list. The Orbit Hostel in Los Angeles is also a nice hostel to stay in before you set off, especially if you haven’t stayed in a hostel before. They do a great day tour of LA that is really good value. Let me know when you make it to Europe, I’ll take you camping in England if you want. And if you visit Rhodes on your way through Europe, my friend’s husband runs a good kite boarding school in Kremasti 🙂

  2. You’ve got a bucket list for every year? That’s terrific. We are beginning to think we need an official bucket list (in general) for ourselves! Congrats that you are more than halfway through that list! Look forward to seeing you bowl the rest over before 2014 rolls on in 🙂

    • Well, I just started the yearly bucket list idea recently! I’ve had an “ongoing” bucket list previously! You should post a bucket list for you guys! I’d love to read it! What would be the first thing to go on your list?

  3. Such a busy year! This year my big project is to do an international trip each month. It has made the year fly by. It’s kind of exhausting, but I can’t complain. I am loving life.

    Some of the things from your list that I’ve done this year are:
    Mom & Daughter trip (NYC with my mom)
    Stay in a hostel (Hiroshima, Japan)
    Travel with a friend (Hiroshima/Osaka in January)
    Learn something new (just started taking Korean lessons)

    We also want to travel first class on an international trip sometime. Just need to save up enough FF points first!

  4. One thing I’ve discovered in life is how many things I’ve done that I would have put on my bucket list had I thought about them beforehand!

    • Yes! It was 6 years in the making! My year off is finally here and I am loving every moment of it. I finally have time to try new things, see new places, and really live beyond my work schedule. It was well worth the wait. If you can make it happen you should really do it. I am happy you are enjoying my travels!

    • haha Thanks! Some of my travel style definitely stays with the turquoise theme! Some things I just have to do because I have wanted to do it for a while! I am excited to finally have the opportunity to explore the world on my own terms!
