I love to travel and looks like this travel bug caught me quite early in life. One of the reasons for liking travel is probably the nomadic nature of my early life when we switched cities every few years. It was fun relocating to an entirely new city, going to a new school in a totally different area with different set of people. Couple of decades back, I was watching travel shows and writing the names of the places that were shown in the various episodes of the TV series. This was my first travel bucket list which listed all the places that I wanted to visit.
I recently finished reading “The bucket list of a traveloholic” by Sarika Pundit and I loved the book. It made me think about my bucket list, which is an ever growing list. It’s been a while since I loved a book so much. I read this book with zero expectations and read it on a whim just because I found the blurb interesting. Sarika has checked some items off her bucket list and I realized some of these items are already part of my bucket list. This is probably the main reason for liking the book. I got to visit many countries virtually through her book. You will definitely like this book if you love traveling. My favorite part of the book has to be the literary trail in UK.
While cleaning my room, I recently found a diary that had my entries about the episodes from a travel show aired on TV back in 1994. I took photos of few of these pages from the diary and have added them below. Please excuse the illegible handwriting. These entries were made when I was in my primary school. My handwriting got much better as I entered my middle/high school. Looks like I liked the episodes on New Zealand, France, Colorado, Ireland, Hungary, Disney World (I knew this. This was THE episode that made me want to visit Disney Land and Disney World so badly.), Toronto, Denmark and many more places. So looks like I caught the travel bug when I was not even a teenager.
Do you like to travel? If you do, when did you catch the travel bug in your life?
