The Journey of 1,000 Miles

1. Visit Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Another archaeological ruin. If you can’t tell by now I want to see as many archaeological sites as possible. Angkor Wat is in Cambodia and looks absolutely majestic. The site is one of the most important in all of South-Asia. The site shows what a high level society was once there. The entire archaeological site is very large and some parts are even inhabited. I have read that the specific temple in the picture is the most beautiful at sunset. This is another place my mom and I both want to travel to, so hopefully one day we will get the chance to visit this archaeological site together.

2. Go skiing in the Alps

I love skiing, my family and I have been skiers for as long as I can remember. The Alps are said to be some of the best mountains to ski in the world, so I would really like to try them out. The best part of skiing is when you are about to ski down a really big, steep mountain and your heart is pounding and adrenaline is rushing. Then once you make it down you can’t believe you didn’t fall and you feel so proud. Trying skiing in another country would be a really cool experience.

3. Go on a road trip through U.S.

This has been something I have been wanting to do for a while now. I really want to grab some friends one summer, jump in a car, and drive across the U.S. I don’t know all the places I would want to visit, but we would definitely start on the east coast somewhere and drive across the country, the end stop would be California. I would want to stop at as many National parks as possible. One place I would definitely would want to see is Mount Rushmore. Just to name a few parks I would visit: Sequoia, Arches, Badlands, Mt. Rainier, Bryce Canyon, Joshua Tree, Glacier Park, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Olympic, and Grand Teton. Travelling on the road with some of my best friends would be so much fun and a once in a lifetime adventure.

4. Go on a one (or couple) month long service trip

Ever since I was a kid I have wanted to work on a service project for a month or two in another country. I think I would want to volunteer at an orphanage or maybe teach English in a school. I truly believe this experience would be life changing and so much. I would be able to absorb so much of the culture and I would be able to give back. I don’t know where I would want to travel to but somewhere maybe in Africa or Central and South America. I hope through my service I would actually be able to help someone and make an impact on their life.

5. Live on a sailboat for a while

I absolutely love sailing so I think it would be really cool to live on a sailboat for awhile. I think it would be really awesome to sail either in the Greek Islands or maybe the Caribbean. Being on a sailboat for awhile, I would be able to practice my sailing skills and become more experienced. It would definitely have to be a sailboat because I don’t think motorboats are as much fun. Sailing you actually have to be skilled and know how to read the wind and work the sails. Being able to live on the ocean for that long would be so cool!

    You have some great things on your bucket list!! For a long time, when I was little, I dreamed of living on a boat for several months to a year. Although this later fell off of my bucket list, I still think that it would be a very cool experience. I also love the idea of going on a long mission trip. Growing up, I went on a weeklong mission trip about every summer, but I have never been to a mission trip longer than that. I think that would be an amazing experience!! Once again, you have a great bucket list going!! I hope you get to experience all of these things!

    Reading about items on your bucket list makes me want to do them! I love the pictures you use, as they really help to capture the excitement in travel and adventure. I love the idea of going on a long service trip. I may have the opportunity to go to Malawi Africa with my church, as they built a school there. I think experiencing culture in Africa would be absolutely life changing. Great post!
