Our Travel Bucket List


This is a sponsored giveaway with Mums the Word Network and All opinions are my own.  @RCI_Timeshare  #ad

Hubby and I so love to travel!  We could travel every week, but with life and jobs and the cost of travel that just isn’t something that will ever happen. So, we have sat down and made a list of places we want to for sure hit, before we can’t travel anymore.  We call it “Our Travel Bucket List”.  I know most people have a bucket list for other things they want to do that might include a bit of travel here or there, but ours is all travel.

Our travel bucket list includes places like – Hawaii, Las Vegas, Colorado, Yellowstone, Niagara Fall, Florida Keys, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Carlsbad Caverns, Coty Wyoming, Branson Missouri, California, Disney World and Disney Land, Alaska, Texas, Maine, New York, Route 66, … Oh the list goes on and on!   We want to do and see so many things and places and add a new thing to our list weekly.  Hubby is always looking at the map.  We spend a lot of time, and money when we travel so we soak it all up.  And, I blog all my travel which is great because it’s like having an online diary to look back and see what we have done.

There are things that we do to make sure we can take vacations that fit into our yearly budget.   Using timeshares is one of the ways we save money and make our trips fun and easy to take.   Using RCI is a great way to make sure to fulfill our travel bucket list.

One way to make sure you don’t lose sight of fulfilling all of your dream trips is to commit to yearly vacations through vacation ownership, or timeshare. Timeshare ensures that you will take a vacation every year.  And I firmly believe that every family, person, couple, etc., needs to take a vacation yearly. And if you purchase a vacation exchange membership through a company like RCI, you can essentially swap your vacation ownership unit for accommodations all over the world.  Perfect because you don’t have to visit the same place, twice.

RCI has nearly 4,500 affiliated resorts in more than 100 countries in its network – making it the largest vacation exchange company in the world. This means that almost no matter where we want to go, we can find a place to stay.  Very important in travel, to have nice places to stay that are within our budget. If you’re not ready to make a long-term commitment, you can also try out timeshare units by booking them through sites like, which offers great deals on a variety of accommodation options including vacation ownership, and see if this type of vacationing fits your lifestyle.  I have many friends and family members who own timeshares and wouldn’t have it any other way.  And, when they vacation they invite us along.

Do you own a timeshare?  Have you ever looked into it?  Do you love to travel?   What 3 places do you plan to travel to next ?

    • One of my BFF’s has had a timeshare for ages. They used to use it a ton when the kids were little, in the Orlando area. Now, kids are grown and they trade it in every year fro different locations. They love it.
