OK, vacations are great because you get to relax and take time off and everything but they are great if you have a bucket list because it gives you a chance to tick a few things off your list at once.

Instead of planning your holiday and thinking of places that you’d like to go, look over your and look for things that you can combine together and tick a few things off your bucket list at the same time.

The best bucket list is one that you are always working towards and this is a really important part of this process.

For example, a couple of years ago I took a holiday to Tasmania, Australia with the vision to do a driving holiday around Tasmania which was on my bucket list.  However I also incorporated the following things that were on my bucket list:

  • Went kayaking for the first time
  • Visited Port Arthur for one day
  • Visited the Cadbury Chocolate Factory (I had on my list to visit a chocolate factory) and
  • Order Room Service (had never before)

Through one trip I managed to cross off five things of my bucket list (and have a great time as well).  So when you start planning your next holiday try and think of ways you can incorporate some of your bucket list items into your holiday.  It’ll give you a sense of accomplishment a great holiday as well.
