We have all heard the term bucket list. But what does that really mean? People say it is a list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket. But that seems a little morbid to me. I prefer to think of it more as a bucket full of goals and dreams for your life. As a travel advisor the term usually refers to the list of places you want to visit. It should not just be a checklist of things before you die, but places you truly want to experience and learn about in life. It should contain your dreams, desires and goals. It is not enough to just list places you want to go, but you have to plan for how to get there and when. A good bucket list has dreams but also details how you will achieve those dreams. If you say you want to go on a safari, you are more likely to actually go if you list a date and plans to save for it. Much like a financial planner creates a lifetime investment plan, a travel advisor helps map out your lifetime bucket list and makes those travel dreams a reality.
