Many of us have dreamed of traveling all around the globe, whether we opt to backpack across Europe post-graduation, go on a sunny family vacay to somewhere tropical (like Bali or St. Lucia), or study abroad in Spain. It can be expensive and time-consuming, so a lot of us also toss the idea aside as something far-fetched and unrealistic, at least for now. We also allow fear to stop us from doing what we would love to do the most.

However, there is a site that might just inspire you and give you enough motivation to get out there and explore. Bucketlistly is a bucket list community that acts as a forum for suggestions, advice, and inspiration for travelers to get out there and see what the world has to offer. Aside from the site's really cool ability to help individuals share and seek their bucket list goals, the creator, Pete R., has launched Bucketlistly Photos, where he shares his photos under a Creative Commons licence for other to view and enjoy for personal and commercial use.

The photos are all taken in destinations all across the world, such as Germany, France, Turkey, Switzerland, Nepal, India, and South Africa, and are all neatly categorized on the site using hashtags for easy viewing. The commercial free part is really cool, because whereas the photographer could be charging for the photos, he's not. You can take his beautiful photographs and do a lot of really cool things with them, such as blog posts and other online articles, school projects or website design, or as your desktop background.

So why release them free? Pete R. put a post up on Medium regarding his decision, writing that, "As a photographer, my purpose is not to create beautiful or realistic photos, but to inspire others to travel."

He continues, "As stated here, my main goal is not to make money. I want to inspire people to visit these places I’ve been. Travel is the best education in the world and If I could play apart in inspiring people to travel, it would be through my photography." Follow his adventures here.
