There was once, in our more limited travelling lives, something known as “trip of a lifetime”. But, for many us, the singular is now well and truly redundant. Instead, a trip of a lifetime has become a lifetime of trips.
Our travels at home and overseas, after all, are no longer confined to marking marriages, milestone birthdays and retirement. Some of us, thanks to ready access to healthy superannuation balances, canny investments and other factors, will complete dozens, perhaps even scores, of these trips over our lifetimes, rendering the so-called bucket list itself as virtually irrelevant as a single trip of a lifetime.
