Heesun’s Bucket List

heesun's bucket list

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.”

This is a bucket list I’ve compiled for places or activities I hope to do, see, and visit in the future. While some things may seem more far-fetched than others (going to space, I’m looking at you), it all starts with a dream right? And even space travel may not be that far off.

What are some items on YOUR travel bucket list? Send us your list at mewanttravel@gmail.com because we’d love to know! If there’s anything that’s on my list that you’d like to do too, send us an email so we can start planning adventures together 🙂
