The Travel List

I honestly love to travel. I find it relaxing, interesting. I love meeting new people in places, falling in love with culture and making memories to last. Still, to this day, four years later, hands down, I repeat, studying abroad was the BEST decision I ever made in my life.  (So far!!) I got experiences that only a handful of my college friends had and let's face it, who wouldnt want to spend a semester of college frolicking around Europe?!

I have gotten into making my own bucket list of things I want to do/see in life before it's over. In blog hopping today, I discovered the travel list and let's see how many places on it (out of 100) I have been to (if I have been to it, it will be bolded & underlined):
