It’s nice to catch up with you again. Today I wanted to get your thoughts about what it takes to officially cross a destination off your bucket list. For example, if you’ve always wanted to visit Spain, and you had a connecting flight through the Madrid airport, would you cross Spain off your bucket list?
The reason I ask is that I realized that I just have seen two of my “bucket list” destinations. The first time was on a flight to India and the second one was when I was going to Toronto. Flying to India, we passed the beautiful mountains of Himalaya without getting as much as frostbite. I took a photo out of the window, see below.
When going to Toronto, I looked out the window and this time as we were flying over Niagara Falls. I was also lucky to capture the photo below and this without even getting wet.
I’ve had both Niagara Falls and Himalaya on my bucket list for quite a while, so now I don’t have to go, right? Or maybe my experiences from the window of the planes were not enough to cross these destinations off the list? Probably not, but I have to admit that I now feel more of an urge to go to other destinations on my bucket list than these.
I’d love to hear what you think and if you had similar experiences and thoughts. And on a side note, what’s the most interesting thing you’ve seen out the window of a plane?
I leave you this time with an anonymous statement from the internet: “I have not seen everything, but it is on my list :-)”
Until next time,
P.S. On a more business-related note, I recently had the opportunity to speak with David Phelps of the Star Tribune in Minneapolis regarding the state of business travel. You can read the full interview here.
