• My travel bucket list…the short version

    Stacy Sprenger
    I love exploring new places, trying new foods and indulging in local cultures, so my actual travel bucket list is very long—too long for one lifetime! But there are a few that come to mind right away when I try to organize a more realistic travel bucket list.

    Here are my top five:

    Panama—Regretfully, this is the one country I missed on a trip I took to Central America. Fellow travelers I’ve spoken to have highly recommended Panama over all other Central American countries, so it has always been a goal for me to make it back for a visit and experience it for myself.

    Bangkok—For the foodie in me! Almost everyone I’ve talked to who has traveled to Bangkok came back raving about the food there. It all sounds delicious.

    South America—Backpacking or volunteering through South America for at least one year would be incredible.  An extended stay in any country is always a great way to truly experience the local culture, immerse yourself in the day-to-day, and to perfect the language.

    Malaysia—I’d want to visit Malaysia for the people. Over the years I’ve met many people from Malaysia and they have all been so genuine, peaceful and happy.

    Australia—What draws me to want to include Australia on my list is simply to see and experience the natural beauty of the land. The pictures I’ve seen and the stories I’ve heard make it sound beautiful. Not to mention all the outback wildlife!




    So there you have it—my (abbreviated) travel bucket list! What’s on yours?
