Do you have a bucket list for travel? Do you try to travel out of it? What all features on it? I have toyed with the idea of a bucket list but I never got around making it. I can see the uses of such a list, it would keep me busy for years altogether.
I wonder why I really never got down to make it. One answer that whispers back to me is that I like travel just too much and I would actually like to see as much as I can, so no lists for me.
When I started traveling I never thought I would travel much beyond India. I am also much of the independent and family traveler but I have started planning my trips using websites (like Make My Trip and Tripadvisor). But my best bet is still Google Images if I like the images I will go to the destination!
There is another recent change in my thinking. It happened due to my visit to both Nepal and Malaysia. I got quite interested in discovering Asia. Nepal completely hooked me with its mighty mountains. Malaysia is more eclectic with modern Kuala Lumpur, tucked away home stays and lovely beaches of which I have seen only one, Redang.
And in Asia on the top of my list are countries that don’t require visa or have visa on arrival. I already have planned a trip to Sri Lanka and I tried to plan one for Hong Kong but didn’t succeed. Then more places on agenda- Mauritius, Bali, Macau and Hong Kong and anyone else who would give me an easy visa. Mauritius Tourism particularly appeals to me because of its India connections and of course the beaches.
But I firmly believe in serendipity and all my carefully laid plans have often come to naught so I am not at all sure how I will fare with this one.
