Travel Tuesday - Bucket List


I have many, many places on my bucket list...but I'm going to stick with the North American continent for this one.....as it's more likely I'll actually visit these places....

1.  Visit all 50 states....this is something I'm working on...and as of last year, I have been to 39..the states still to visit?

- Alaska (probably in 2 years on our 25th)
- Washington (see above)
- Oregon
- Idaho
- New Mexico
- Nevada
- Utah
- Arizona
- Michigan
- Minnesota
- North Dakota
- Hawaii

So it's mainly the southwest and the northwest.....

2.  Prince Edward Island
Ever since I saw the Anne of Green Gables mini-series..I have wanted to visit....and it really isn't that far from me..about a full days drive..now that the Hubs has a passport!

3.  Teotihuacan Pyramids in Mexico
I have a great-grandmother who was born in Mexico...and supposedly she was Mayan.  Either way, I'd love to visit the Mayan ruins in the Yucatan.

4. Vancouver, Canada
Okay this one has to do with Stargate, the tv series.  I was originally going to go to Vancouver in 2007...it's the reason I got my passport....but I ended up going to San Diego with a friend instead....but I'd still like to visit Vancouver..seems like a very cool city...

5. Puerto Rico
Technically not on the North American continent, but since it is part of the US...most of my students come from Puerto Rico..and many of the teachers that are my colleagues.  I hear about Puerto Rico all of the time..and it seems like a beautiful place to visit...


There are still so many!  Just here in the US, I could name a bunch of places I want to visit....never mind heading over to Europe...or Australia/New Zealand....

Vancouver is high on my list too!! And wow, you've been to a lot of places in the US. If I ever visit the states I'd love to go to Hawaii, Alaska, Montana and Oregon ;)

Oh I completely understand! There are definitely so many things in North America I would love to visit! The Mayan temples in Mexico is also on my list and I have to say that Vancouver is amazing, so worth it! I definitely recommend the summer, as the winter in British Columbia is a bit miserable!

Excellent list. My sis lives near Vancouver and love love loves it. I'd love to see Puerto Rico, too. Someday!

Sometimes I feel like I've been to more places outside the US than in it - I need to explore this country more! It's so much more difficult to travel here, I hate it. But, I always plan on making it out to the west someday and just exploring everywhere!
