New year, new goals, new places to go and people to see. Traveling is always on the top of my resolutions or goals for the year. There’s nothing better than seeing new places, meeting new people and exposing yourself to different cultures. Music festivals are one of our favorite climax events, with people from around the world, different genres of music and a reason to explore a new place… we present you with our Music Festival Bucket List 2013!
