What’s on your travel bucket list?
By Aimee Heckel
Some of us have travel resolutions — places we hope to see in 2014. But it seems everyone has a travel bucket list — places we dream of visiting some day, some how.
We have long dreamed of going to Peru and hiking the steps of Machu Picchu (even though we don’t have a particular affinity for stairs). The history, the scenery and the culture intrigue us.
We were curious to learn more about other travelers’ fantasies, so we asked our readers: What’s on your travel bucket list? We were surprised by their unique, creative and exciting ideas, so we just had to share. May their answers inspire your future travels — and maybe even make their way onto your own travel bucket list.
