Our Crazy Round-The-World Itinerary

Thirty places and 148,390 miles – those are the numbers for the new travel itinerary I planned with the help of the members in The Goal List Community.

Okay… it’s not a real trip. But it’s fun to see anyway.

In August, I posted a game in the community (we’re on Facebook, you should join!), asking members to come up with names of places that started with the letter that the previous location ended with. For example, Alabama -> Anchorage -> Eiffel Tower…

Over the next few days, members replied with locations around the world. As promised, I put them all on a map (I used a site called Tripline, which I hadn’t heard of before but I’ll definitely look into it more in the future).

Here’s the full map, which you can click to go to the interactive one. Use the arrows below the map to see each of the stops one by one (if you can’t see the picture, click here to go to the map).

I know this kind of thing isn’t really how most of us will plan a trip, but it’s a fun game to play while you’re waiting for the next (real) trip to happen.

Although… some people choose vacation destinations by throwing darts at maps, or by spinning a globe and randomly stopping it. Would you use something like this game to plan your itinerary?

I can also see it working as a group icebreaker, or maybe in a hostel when you’re making friends (no wifi needed: grab a real map of the local area, limit the locations to places on whatever map you have access to, and draw the lines between locations by hand).

And when you do have wifi, check out The Goal List Community, a free Facebook group for those who love bucket listing, travel, and goal achievement, and want to support and be supported in their goals and adventures.


Shoutout to Tina, Carla, Salim, Lara, Aditi, Ashley, and Sara for helping create this itinerary!

Intentional Life 5-Day Challenge – Starts Monday!

Have you been intentional about the way you speak, think, and spend your time over the past few months?

When we put thought into what we’re saying, how we’re thinking, and what we’re doing with the time we have, we can better reach our goals and make the most of every opportunity.

Intentional Life

This free 5 day challenge will give you a push toward approaching your life in a more purposeful way, based on your values and goals.

The challenge takes place in The Goal List Community on Facebook, starting Monday, April 24. Request to join the community and then RSVP to the challenge event to get your place on the scoreboard.

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Each day, there will be a prompt posted in the discussion for this event.
  • Follow the prompt, and then check in by replying to the post to say you did the activity for that day.
  • Get 1 point for completing the activity, and 1 point for checking in (2 points max/day).
  • If you can’t do one of the activities on that day, instead check in with your plan for when you’ll complete it. This will give you 1 point max.

The person with the most points by the end of the challenge gets a surprise!
