Creating a wanderlist is your opportunity to dream big, go beyond and put down everything you want to see, touch or experience.
Here are 5 different strategies that we believe can help bring your dreamed wanderlist to life.
1 - Keep post-its by your desk.
The truth is, you never know when a great idea will come. It can come in the middle of a project you are working on or even during a meeting with your co-workers! Having post-it notes right by your desk is an easy and quick way to right down your idea and stick it wherever you want. That way, whenever the opportunity comes, your idea will be there staring at you!
2 - Keep a notebook by your television.
Movies and TV shows are a great source of inspiration. Having a journal for those times you see something that sparks your interest is quite handy and also a great way to have a growing list at your fingertips.
3 - Keep a notebook by your bed.
This comes in handy especially if you have a hard time falling asleep. Close your eyes when you first lay down and picture where you would like to be falling asleep other than your bed. Visualize the sounds and scents of where you are. Is it a beach cabana in Fiji? Is it a hammock overlooking the night sky of the Colorado Mountains? Is it a hotel room on the top floor of a Singapore skyscraper? Play out that peacefulness in your mind but don’t forget to write it down before you fall asleep.
4 - Where have your friends gone?
Have you seen a fabulous trip on a friend’s Facebook Page? Poll your followers and discover what is on their bucket list. What gets you excited when talking about vacations? Have you been chatting on Twitter about your dream destinations? Ask yourself these questions and follow your favorite travel bloggers and photographers for added inspiration!
5 - Don't forget to go!
Even if you have only a few places on your list, you can still go before your list is complete. It is an ever evolving dream of experiences that will change your future travel plans. Have you always dreamed of going to Hawaii and relaxing on a quiet beach? Have you done that and realize that you are more drawn to the nightlife of Waikiki Beach? Great! Use that to edit past journal entries and expand your future ideas on your list.
