Well folks, 2012 is quickly coming to a close. It’s already a new year down under, and we have our sights set on our 2013 travel plans. With a new year, comes new plans, and new destinations. There are so many things that are saved for THE bucket list, collecting dust while you go on living your busy life. But no more, this year let’s cross a few things off those lists and remember that playing is just as important as working.

MissTravel’s 13′ Bucket List:

One. Get your passport.

You can’t have an adventure if you don’t have the means to get there. Apply here if you are a U.S. Citizen: http://travel.state.gov/passport/get/first/first_830.html

Two. Go to a music festival.

Burning Man, Nevada. Electric Daisy Carnival, Las Vegas. Bonaroo, Tennessee. Coachella, California.

Three. Go Down Under.

Surf the Gold Coast. Hug a Koala in Brisbane. Snorkel/Scuba the Reef in Cairns. Sail around the Sydney Harbor.


Four. Laos.

Bar hop by tube. Go caving and zip-lining through the rain forest.

Five. New Orleans

Mardi Gras. Creole. Jazz. The French Quarter.

Six. Get Scuba Certified.

The Great Barrier Reef. Turks & Caicos. Blue Hole in Belize. Honduras. Mexico. Florida Keys.

Seven. Thailand.

Ride an elephant on the beach. The Grand Palace. Floating Markets. Phi Phi Islands. Temple of Dawn.

Eight. Learn to snowboard.

Park City, UT. Aspen, CO. Mammoth, CA. Zermatt, Switzerland. Niseko, Japan. Whistler, B.C.

Nine. Cliff jumping.

Preferably into the ocean, or some body of water.

Ten. Take a trip on a whim.

The beach is always just a plane ride away. In the dead of winter, or an impromptu weekend with nothing on the schedule just pack your bags and catch a plane to anywhere.


Eleven. Go to a championship game.

Super Bowl. World Series. NBA Finals. NCAA Final Four Championship. 24 Hours of Le Mans. Indy 500. Wimbledon. World Cup.

Twelve. Get Air.

Para-sailing. Hot-Air Balloon Ride. Para-gliding.

Thirteen. Go on a destination date.

First dates can be scary, and a first date in a foreign country can be incredibly daunting. But you know what? Nothing in life worth having comes risk free. Never pass up a good opportunity to travel. Take a chance, accept an offer for that free trip to Rio, Spain or the Bahamas. That trip you almost passed up on could turn into the story you tell your children about how you fell in love.

Happy New Year travel lovers! We hope 2013 brings you good health, good laughs and good times. May you find yourself somewhere amazing next year, and remember to start living now. Keep calm and travel on!

    All personalities and perspectives are welcome on the blog, while personal attacks and name calling are not. It’s inevitable that there will be disagreements but let’s handle it as mature adults with class to keep the dialog constructive and respectful. Please refer to the “Blog Etiquette” http://blog.misstravel.com/blog-etiquette/ for more details. Now comment away and let’s enjoy the blog

    I think you should put Thailand before the Great Barrier Reef because the shortest scuba certification course is in Thailand. Otherwise it can take a few months.

    It would be great to see a focus on Eco and Ethical Tourism, sailing excursions, and cycling (and wine!) tours.
    Many thanks!

  4. I have observed that in the world the present moment, video games are the latest craze with kids of all ages. Occasionally it may be out of the question to drag your children away from the activities. If you want the best of both worlds, there are various educational video games for kids. Interesting post.
