I absolutely love to travel, and constantly think up incredible trips I hope to take in the future. I'm lucky to have already visited places like Iceland and Tunisia in my lifetime, but there's still so much more I hope to see around the world. I read a variety of travel blogs, and from them comprised a list of 30 bucket list trips to take before you die.
