Our travel bucket list!

We both realized that we’ve each traveled approximately 20% of the world, which suddenly made us feel unaccomplished and sad. So we decided to create this bucket list which we will edit as we think of new places we want to go to and link to articles about places we’ve visited. This list is definitely NOT complete, so if you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear about them in the comments 🙂

We travel together A LOT, but we also travel separately, which means color coding is necessary. So, purple destinations are ones we both want to visit, red are ones Pav wants to visit and Alena wants to visit the blue ones. Usually, if it’s designated by only one of us it means that the other was already lucky enough to have visited.
