Our Dream Travel Bucket List From Kampala to Punta Cana!

Pkjulesworld Dream Travel Bucket List – From Kampala to Punta Cana To Inspire Yours! #DreamTravel

Some of our Now not so secret Destination Bucket List Items! @pkjulesworld

Has it occurred to you that there are things in life that you want to do and haven’t done, places you’ve dreamt of seeing, and how old are you today? When it’s the latter it’s commonly called a travel bucket list, and today we wanna inspire you to create yours and Start ticking it off.

Pauli and I grew up in the Kampala suburbs, and boy did we envy people who went “abroad” and anyone that “flew to UK” was considered to have gone to London irrespective of which part of UK they were visiting!  You went to USA for holidays or vacation, my goodness, you were considered super posh and everyone wanted to be your friend.

One of the things that drew us closer was that we had a hunger to travel widely and we had “flown Abroad” in our uni days.  πŸ™‚ We also had a mutual desire to see a heck of a lot more, fly off to explore far off places together. We literally talked about Europe, Asia, USA etc. and created our travel Bucket List way before we created Pkjulesworld. As we travelled more and ticked it off, the name evolved in our family. Lo and behold, we created this travel one-stop-hub growing day by day and today we share Pkjulesworld Inspired Travel Bucket list!

Well you may be wondering whats a travel bucket list?

“A bucket list is essentially a list of experiences or achievements one wants to have in their lifetime!”

Even though I have always been a city girl, Paul was born in Rural Soroti, Northern Uganda.  I must say he has definitely embraced his “country boy” background. But we both love to call Liverpool Home and Uganda our motherland. Our love of travel has offered us mega opportunities to grow, learn and embrace other cultures cuisines, traditions and above all people.

Sadly we know and have found lots, esp. on our travels who have never left their locality and it’s not for want of resources. They just don’t think travel is for them. And we like to test their mentality with a Qn that almost always shows that they would love to travel more, they just never really think about it as a priority. And whats that question then?

 “If money was not an issue and you had all the time, where would you go and why? 

If money was not an issue and you had all the time, where would you go and why? #travelsurvey Click To Tweet

Due to our love of all things travel we have been fortunate to be able to visit lots of world destinations that would turn many shrek-like. πŸ™‚  Cities & locations like Assisi, Breckenridge, Orlando, Tampa, Atlanta, Rome, Pyrenees, Lourdes, Greece, Cyprus, London, Turkey, Spain, Italy, Llndundo, Cardiff, Austria, Paris, Frankfurt, Los Angeles, Munich, Nairobi, Dar-Es-Salaam, Florence Mwanza, Bukoba, Tucson, (in fact you can read about our trip here), coast to coast UK, wales, Edinburgh, Glasgow etc. In fact we’ve left our lots and I can tell you now we have lots more to see while we still have breath and thus our Pkjulesworld travel wish List!

Our Roman Invasion – The Food was Yummy! @pkjulesworld

We are also blessed to have access to a travel app that allows one to put together a travel bucket list online, which automatically enters one in a draw to have your dream holiday created into a dreamtrip experience. These experiences are not your normal type vacation. They include Accommodation to 4-5 Star Properties/Hotels/resorts  with airport pickup included for most, Your Breakfasts, special 5 course meals. At least 2 excursions or activities in the Local area, and much more. How about taking part in a voluntour where you get to build a school for children in need while staying in a 5 star hotel all meals included, excursions etc. Giving back to those less fortunate is such a good thing. And the best of all you could go free…! Some of the popular Travel App Bucket list items are shown below. And our own Activity & Travel Bucket List created via the travel app is shown  with the ones we have done grayed out. They Include Locations, Activities and Dinning or places we’d love to eat out!

You can see we’ve put together a series of destinations within the app and bookmarked them. We have been ticking off item after item and adding more as we go.

This travel wish list is focused on locations and activities in general and includes some summer travel bucket list ideas. Destinations and travel experiences we wish to partake of. Predominantly because the liluns have lots of places they want to visit while mom and dad are still paying lol. We the adults also hope to get away at least a couple of times for R & R. So the question is what makes them so special to us?

Now that’s pretty personal, to each of us. Yet PKJULESWORLD’s vision is to Inspire and encourage you and many others to go beyond your geographical limitations and See more of this beautiful planet, Experience more and Become that better person and thus our Tagline:

Some we’ve done too but there’s lots more to see, do and be more across the planet; we’ve only just started. πŸ™‚ We shall be sharing our trips either prior to, during, or after. While it’s so much fun to share during a trip, its not always possible. But to give you a taste of what we shall be sharing here are 9 subjects to explore in each destination:

  1. Some Random Facts, fictions, culture, and a wee history about the exact destination.
  2. Some must See tourist and non-touristy places to see.
  3. Airport and Transportation.
  4. Accommodation in detail.
  5. Food and where to eat.
  6. Entertainment and fun places.
  7. Shopping of course for the memorabilia.
  8. Our Experience of the destination and whether it lived up to our hopes.
  9. And finally our recommendation on whether it should be added to YOUR travel bucket list! πŸ™‚

As smart travellers we like to return home from our trips with way more than memorabilia, tans, extra body mass and Kodak moments. We love to learn new cultures, cuisines, games, a bit of the language; Our hope is that our children come home with a piece of that destination in their souls.
