101 in 1001 Part 1


I’m a sucker for lists. I like making a list (or ten) and feeling the sense of accomplishment when each and every item on the list is crossed off. So, when I saw the 101 goals in 1001 days challenge, I was very excited. This was right up my alley!

The Challenge is to complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. Click here for more information regarding the 101 in 1001 challenge.

My 101 goals list includes goals from the entire spectrum, including: personal, financial, humanitarian, professional, and travel/exploration. Because this is a travel blog I thought I would share the goals relating to travel/exploration.
