Many people have a Bucket-list of Travel Destinations they’d like to visit at least once in their life but very few of us get the opportunity to do so and are often left wondering what if or why didn’t I do it? Once a month we choose one Adventurous Traveler to answer a few Questions and give recommendations about Bucket-List Travel based on their personal Bucket-List Travel Experience.
Meet Bryanna, she is a very adventurous beautiful female Bucket List Traveler who's ultimate goal was to visit all 7 continents. Yes you read it right, I said “was to” visit all 7 continents. That is because through years of amazing travel adventures Bryanna has had the honor to accomplish her travel goal of visiting all 7 continents and she will be sharing some of her Bucket List Travel wisdom with us today in this Travel Interview as she takes us on a Journey to Antarctica!!!!!!
Bryanna Appleby. I am an alumna of the University of Pennsylvania. I am currently living in Oahu, Hawaii and am an Air Force Officer. While I love traveling I also enjoy spending time at home with my husband and 2 dogs. I love traveling and am a proud member of the 7 Continent Club!
It takes me to the temples of Angkor Wat, to the Corcovado in Brazil to hiking to Everest Base Camp and beyond.
Antarctica, Angkor Wat, Machu Picchu were my top bucket list destinations and I’ve made it to them all…I’m trying to make it to the Galapagos next!
Machu Picchu was my first solo trip. I had always wanted to visit all of the world wonders and thought it would be a rewarding one to start with. Once, I had completed my 6th continent…I started to look at Antarctica. Antarctica is notoriously expensive as a bucket list destination but I scored a 50% opportunity. I have actually visited all of these destinations!!
Antarctica for outdoor destinations and Japan for the culture!
The vastness of the glaciers and all of the untouched land.
The wildlife (orcas, humpbacks, penguins) and the beauty and vastness of the glaciers.
Of course! Antarctica is absolutely incredible, expensive but absolutely incredible.
Experiencing new cultures, eating amazing food, and taking in all of a destination’s beauty.
I prefer to do all three! My favorite trip with my husband was a romantic getaway to Bora Bora. I have done a ton of backpacking with my friend Vanessa and Girls Trips are always so much fun. We have gone to Oktoberfest, Morocco, and Russia. Solo traveling is rewarding for the soul and it just does something to your confidence. As we get older, my friends and husband aren’t able to escape from work as much but I don’t let that stop my traveling. If I didn’t do solo traveling I would have never made it to Antarctica, China, Japan, South Africa, Myanmar, the list goes on.
I jump right in! The first step is always to buy the plane ticket and then I work out all of the details from there.
Don’t wait! I guarantee once you start traveling and meet other wanderlusters your bucket list will continue to grow.
There’s a famous quote out there… “Traveling is the only thing you buy that makes your richer!”
