Do you ever just sit and fantasize about all of the things you want to do and places you want to see? I often find my mind wandering off to all the possibilities this life holds for us. The people we have the chance to meet, the new experiences that can be made, the destinations we can travel to. So. Many. Opportunities. The thing is though, how many people really, truly, grasp this? Not a lot in my opinion.

I for one refuse to forget that we only have one life to live, and what you chose to do with it is totally and completely up to you. So on that note, I have made myself a promise. A promise that I will take that leap of courage and see new places, experience new cultures, and gain a new respect for this world that we live in. Within the year I plan to discover at least one new place I have never been. It will happen. How? Because I said so. Nah….just kidding, it’s really because I want it bad enough and I know with determination I can make it happen.

The list is pretty close to infinite of all of the cities, towns, and countries I want to set my sights on, BUTTT for the sake of you guys not reading a novel, I have included my top 5. As well as a few other inspiring reads on how to get yo butt out there and wanderlust! (Scroll over pic to see location)

P.S. – Yes, most of these cities do contain water because clear blue water is another fav of mine.
