  1. Hi Brooklyn!

    Thanks for tweeting me your link on today’s #lbloggers chat!

    I love this blog post! I had my bucket list written down a while ago and I would reflect on it from time to time. This is such a good idea to post in your blog & share it! Such great motivation to actually cross them off & it’s also nice to share your experiences with everyone else! I think I might have to copy you and put a list of my own on my blog!

    Like you.. travel to all 50 states in on my list too! And so is Iceland! I do hope you get around to doing everything you want to do and hopefully we can read about it on this blog of yours!


    1. Thanks!

      If you post your bucket list I’d love to read it!

      There are so many places I want to go to, it’s hard to put it all just in one list ?

  2. This is such a great list! If I made one up right now I think I’d have a lot of the same things! I hope you get to check more off, honestly I LOVE hawaii, you have got to go when you get the chance (I’ll come join you haha )! Definitely have to go to Maui it is so much more relaxed than Honolulu and they have amazing banana bread!

Hi! I’m Brooklyn. Like many, I thought my purpose in life was to go to university, settle down and have kids. But that is not me. 

My aim is to inspire you to travel as much as you can while you can, whether that be through au pair work, or on your limited vacation days. It CAN be done. This world is incredible, let’s explore it!
