As avid travelers, we’ve had our bucket list for years.  There are so many things that we want to learn and accomplish in the world.  It wasn’t until Maria from @LatinAbroad decided to provide an outlet for us to share our travel bucket lists.  Now, we get together every Wednesday (via twitter) and chat using the hashtag #TravelBL.  If you have a travel bucket list and want to get in on the fun, please feel free to join us on Wednesdays at noon at 6:16pm (EST).  It’s always a party!

Without further ado, our travel bucket list:

    FALCON TRAINING in the Middle East!? Now THAT’S something I would have NEVER thought of, even though I lived in the region for 16 months and everything! Love this concept, I’m being inspired by many of you. Thank you for helping spread the love for travel, GREAT list!

    hey! I’ve started my own bucket list on – it’s quite easy to organise and share bucket list ideas with friends (and comment on them so you keep everything in one place!). It has also helped me cross things off my bucket list! But great ideas – I may steal a few! 😛

    You guys have accomplished quite a bit together! The Thai tattoo one I really want but they want to outlaw it for tourists.
