Bucket list with mom is a travel diary with my mother, Diane Artis. My goal is for us to travel the world together, create lasting memories and inspire others to do the same. My sister died from triple negative breast cancer at the age of 39 during the height of my vlogging career. After she passed, I realized I only had one video clip from my sister. I felt ashamed I didn’t seize the moment and film more footage of her. I’m determined to created tons of travel memories with my mother. My travel network has blossomed, and I want to use all my travel rewards with my mother. I find that parents are encouraged to do things with their children but as adults rarely are we influenced to do travel with our parents.

Together we have traveled to Trinidad and Tobago, London, Paris, New Zealand, and Australia. My favorite moments have been when she meet my friends aboard. She has an adventurous spirit and has shown me on a few occasions that i get it from her. In New Zealand, we hiked to the top of Mt. John to see a birdseye view of Lake Tepako, and in Queenstown, we took a turbulent helicopter to view a glacier and landed at hidden lake.

I hope my Bucket List with Mom series inspires you to travel the world with your parents and cherish each moment. There is an old saying, “Give me my flowers while I can still smell them” I think my mother deserves her flowers!
