Our 40ish List

We’re not going with 30 things to do before 30 bandwagon since one of us will be short of time to fulfill that list. And that person might be pressured and possibly quit his job to obtain that goal. Right Sky? Hehehe. Instead, we come up with 40ish (fortywish) things to do, accomplish and  places to visit  which we think unachievable for an ordinary people like us who only travel one pay check at a time.

  9. Just go, be delusional, be ambitious. The more you become that way, the bigger the driving force for you to continue your goals. Me too, recently I have published an entry already telling my travel goals on which until now I don't know how to do it (re: backpacking Luzon in motorbike and exploring 1500 towns and cities in Pinas, and it has really drove me big time to fulfill it 🙂

IN lieu of your post, I've actually written a list as well (places around the world) that I haven't published on Budget Biyahera just yet.. I might just post it when I feel like the time is right to share (LOL)! A 40-ish list is a great idea for you lovebirds.. I might just urge my beau about meeting up for our own list. 🙂 Keep exploring Summer & Sky! 🙂
