Taking time to create a thoughtful bucket list can make it easier to plan for meaningful vacations, those that are a deliberate reflection of your values, hopes and dreams. So, before you begin listing desired destinations, ask yourself what aspects of the world - geographically, spiritually and culturally - you want to share with your children, grandchildren and perhaps other friends and family members. Will you seek out sustainable solutions and consider climate change as you plan? As your ideas take shape, know your list will evolve over the years. Therefore, think about which destinations you hope to visit while your children are in the nest and which might best be saved for later. And, when it comes time to involve the children in creating the bucket list, remember that kids don't know what they don't know. Certain theme parks and resorts will likely be on their radar screens. But they may not be aware of the beauty of the backcountry or the historical significance of Gettysburg or Montpelier.
