There are many things that I want to achieve in my life and travelling to every country on Earth is definitely one of them. While this is a long-term goal that will take lots of time, money and effort to achieve, there are many less difficult things to do with travel that are also goals of mine. Some goals I want to achieve this year, some will have to wait another 20 years, but whenever I do achieve a goal, it will be crossed off this list. New goals will most definitely also be added when I discover them!

My goals are often inspired by what other people share with me, so feel free to be inspired and make my goal your goal.
