Top 10 Places To Add On Your Bucket List

When the travel bug bites you, there is (un)fortunately no cure. It’s like one of those itches that just wouldn’t go away.

Traveling may strip you of your hard-earned money but creating memories from travel experiences rather than just acquiring material things gives one his penny’s worth. And of course, there are nifty ways to travel without breaking the bank! It just takes a tad of planning in advance to cut down on cost. It helps to keep track of travel deals by signing up on online travel sites to get a heads-up on flights and accommodation promos and you might be surprised on how much you can save.
