I love to armchair travel in the winter months!

And so it was great fun to read through 1000 different adventures I could be experiencing whilst it drizzles outside. This is the perfect book for travel inspiration and ideas BUT it is not a travel book for advice, trip details, or destination info.

Just sayin.

Some of these I have actually done (in my youth) and some I still think I can and will do!
#107 Sleep Among Polar Bears, Canada
#121 Keep night watch over sea turtles in Nicaragua
#153 Hiking the great wall, China
#180 The Milford Track New Zealand - this is one of the many ones that I would consider if I could go to New Zealand for a month or so someday.
#216 I want to go to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Revitalized my bucket list!
