30 More Ideas For My Travel Bucket List

I first published my bucket list late last year and as with all things travel it’s snowballed since I’ve been back on the road backpacking again!

I’ve added a few things here and there, some that I hadn’t considered putting on the list until I actually booked to do them and some on the recommendation of backpacking buddies.

This year has also seen me tick quite a few items off the list too, like working as a surf instructor, hiking the inca trail, visiting somewhere landlocked (in fact I’ve done that twice this year now with Laos and Switzerland!) and going tubing in Vang Vieng!

So I thought it was about time to do a large post update to my bucket list. I’ve added them to the original list but I thought I’d give them their own blog post too! Some I’ve already ticked off and some are now firmly on the to do list!
