Wish list 2019!

Right!

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 🙂

No Country Cities Why
