When we first started Creative Dwelling a couple of years ago, I did a post about my travel priorities: those things that were the most important to me in terms of seeing the world, so that I’d have something to go of off and work towards.
Well, I made a new one last night, and they’re practically identical. Not quite, but very nearly.
Let’s compare the two, shall we?
From June 12, 2012:
- Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
- Bike around Ireland.
- Surf in Hawaii and California.
- Visit all 50 states.
- Adventure trip to New Zealand.
- Scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef.
- Hike Machu Picchu.
- Go somewhere I never would have considered before.
- Live abroad for 3 months or more.
From April 1, 2014:
- Surf in California.
- Live in Melbourne, Australia.
- Do a bike tour of Vietnam.
- Go to a Christmas market in Prague, or Belgium.
- Hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
- Experience autumn in New York City.
- WWOOF in Hawaii.
- Island hop in Greece.
- Float in the Dead Sea.
- Zipline in Costa Rica.
What strikes me about these two lists is that the spirit stays the same across both. The places are similar, and the reasons I want to go there are similar, but my thinking about them and my ideas about how to experience them have evolved. Which is pretty cool to see.
What are your travel priorities?
