Do you feel bored & trapped in a mundane schedule of life and movies like Dil Chahta Hai and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara make you want to just hit the road and dive in the beaches of Goa or attend the tomatina festival in Spain? Meetings, deadlines and expectations make it hard for us to break out the pattern and just go for it.
That is the exact reason why people make bucket lists. Bucket lists are famous among millennials, we know it's important for us to hold on to our dreams while we're still young & thriving. Bucket lists allow you to explore the world & yourself. It ensures that we don't forget our dreams in a mundane life.
Unlike movies, bucket lists shouldn’t be created before you ummm.. kick the bucket, instead it should be a way out of your comfort zone to collect memories you never thought you could & cherish them for a lifetime.
Here are 5 reasons why you must have a travel bucket list:
Figure Yourself Out
Whether it's climbing a mountain or swimming in deep waters, travelling makes you question yourself and your wants, it helps you discover your desires and figure your own self out. We see people go most of their lives, in the societal expectations of going to a university, getting a job, marriage and it never ends. Bucket lists help you challenge that norm and focus on your needs in order to fulfill them.
Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone
Exploring different places, people, cultures exposes you to news experiences making you step out of your comfort zone. It can be skydiving in Norway or eating street food in Korea, a bucket can challenge you to step out and face the new world. Embracing the new situations and enabling us to let go for once.
Every traveling experience comes with challenges and thus new memories. You never know which decision of yours can turn out to be one of the best memories of your life that you can cherish forever. Each experience whether good or bad, will help you grow and learn new things. A travel bucket list will ensure your journal is colourful and happy.
The Breath of Independence
Whether you're solo travelling or travelling with your friends, it does make you the owner of your own decisions, where you don't seen anyone else's opinion. You become independent to embark on a journey of self exploration with your friends, dealing with situations and figuring things out, you learn the true meaning of where there's a will, there's a way.

A bucket list can help you get this sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. Further, the unparallel feeling of ticking an item off your bucket list, however big or small it may be, will make the rest of your goals seem far more attainable.
