Our Travel Bucket List
A running list of places we want to go and experiences we want to have. If we’ve already done it, then it’s not on the list. 🙂 Nothing is in any particular order. Most are high-level ideas. Details come when we start planning.
Safaris – lots of them and eco/culturally-friendly
Lemurs in Madagascar
Victoria Falls from both the Zimbabwe and Zambia sides
Hike the Otter Trail, South Africa
Wild One-Horned rhinoceros in Assam, India
Hike the Kumano Kodo, Japan
More time in Mongolia
Sleep in the underwater hotel in the Maldives (right after we win the lottery…)
Visit the orangutan sanctuary in Borneo
Earn every Junior Ranger badge (we’re addicts 🙂 ), which conveniently means that we would also visit almost every National Park Service-managed site.
Through-hike the Appalachian Trail
New Mexico…maybe for the balloon festival?
Sliding Rock in Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina
Rocky Mountain Explorer rail journey
