The importance of a plan: So its 2019, and I have one more year to travel, and see the world 🙂 An important learning from my MBA days, is to have a tracker or plan that defines your goals. While, you may not achieve all of it, you will achieve some of it! Its time to now start an inspirational wish-list for my travel adventures!
My wishlist for 2019: Ideally, I want to visit 10 new countries 🙂 The issue with this, is that I may prioritize visiting a country over a specific place. Yet, if I know myself, I will land up prioritizing a place over a country.
With this in mind, here is the list of ~15 countries I wish to travel, so that I can visit a tleast 10 🙂
|1. Reading the book the Silk Road that makes me dream about the ancient Silk Road.
