Our Mother-Daughter One Year “Trek Around The World” Bucket List


My mom and I have begun planning the unthinkable to many, but for us, this itinerary is as real as it gets.  Between the two of us, we have compiled a “Must See/Do List” for each continent.  We are sure we will travel to many of these places before the “BIG TRIP”, so we will cross those off as we go, leaving the unchartered locations for the 2025 trek around the globe.



For those world travelers reading this, if we’ve left off anything that you’d recommend, please let us know!

Our list includes cities, countries, landmarks and sites in no particular order.

We will begin to map out the route soon but the thought of that is quite overwhelming so we will take it slow and plan very thoughtfully, regarding logistics, budget and safety.


So here it is!
