The List

The world is a wonderful place that have lots of things to offer for everyone to see, explore and experience. My travel quest started when i was around 22, and the more I’ve seen, the more i want to explore. My list are goals I want to do, experience or explore during my lifetime. So far I’ve already accomplished some goals, but some are waiting to be explored. The more I discover, the longer the list becomes. For me the list consists of many things I want to explore in the world: culture, music, art, nature, wildlife, food, festivals, historic sights and all the other things that make this world so beautiful.

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” – Ralp Waldo Emerson.
