Top 10 Favorite Travel Photos from 2013 – #2

10 countries and countless cities made it on my 2013 Bucket List. France, Dominican Republic, Bermuda, Jordan, Aruba, Curacao, Canada, USA, Mexico, and Fiji were all part of my whirlwind of adventures and new experiences. I never envisioned such an amazing year of opportunity; my life continues to be a dream come true. I am blessed. Some people create a bucket list because they are dying; I created one because I want to live.

Here are my top ten favorite travel photos from 2013.

Number 2 – Bermuda

Bermuda Travel

When you envision Paradise, what images enter your mind? Do you picture snow-capped mountains? Maybe an endless field of flowers? Or cotton-candy colored skies? My version of Paradise has always been the perfect beach. I remember looking at a poster in university of bridge over water and I was so draw to it, that I needed to buy it. I must have stared at that poster for more than 100 hours, imagining my life in those waters. While in Bermuda, as if from a dream, the poster appeared before my eyes… yet it was real. It was as if everything I’d dreamed about in the picture materialized right in front of me while driving on the highway in Bermuda near St. George’s.

This photo represents the accumulation of all of my dreams come true. It’s no longer a dream-like poster, rather a photo that I shot while on a press trip in Bermuda.

Do you think if you dream it and imagine it, you attract it into your life?

    • “All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” T. E. Lawrence


      • Beautiful!

        I thought about these words all day and it’s just now, after reflection, that I want to comment.

        I have been a dreamer and an explorer since I was a child. My family has come to expect anything and everything from me and are never surprised at my successes or failures, although we don’t view anything in life as a failure. They support me and encourage me even when what I desire seems completely unattainable and that is what makes it all worthwhile. I will continue to be unrealistic with my dreams and goals and make them a reality because I am a dreamer of the day.

        Thank you for always encouraging me like my family, and continuing to share on Bucket List Publications.

        You are valued and appreciated 🙂


    • I read a book about that. While I’m not sure if I believe it to that extent, I certainly believe that the more unrealistic I am with my dreams and goals, the more I’m able to achieve. And… I’m having a great time trying. 🙂


  1. Thank you for the ‘like’ on my ‘Social Media’ post. I love your photo – with the weather here in Maryland today, I wish I was on that dock right now!



  2. Lesley the photo is stunning as so many of your posts are. However the inspiration you share of going after your dreams, no matter what others might think or what barriers lie in the path, is the main reason I keep coming back to your blog. Keep dreaming and inspire on!


  3. Yes, I do. Everything in life goes like a ring. What you send out, you will receive. If you are positive, you can attract everything, and will receive, what you need, when you are ready for that. At least I think so.
    Very beautiful photo. Thanks for sharing.
