My Bucket List

I think I probably started my first bucket list at around 16yrs old, and I even managed to find the original hand written version in an old Filofax of mine…

As you can see they pretty much all have something to do with travel, no surprise their eh!

Seeing as most things are digital these days, here it is laid out for you all to see with some edits since my teens! As you’ll notice a few have been ticked off already but there are many more to go and no doubt many more to be added as time goes on 🙂

1. Dive the Great Barrier Reef

2. Sky Dive in NZ (I did this in Australia in the end but it still counts right?)

3. PADI License (I actually did this in Koh Tao, Thailand – not Egypt)

4. Swim with dolphins in Florida (REMOVED once I found out how cruel this is)

5. Rock Climbing in Canada

6. Watch sunrise and sunset in South Africa

6. Safari in Africa (Note the on horseback comment in the photo; I’d be happy with any kind though!)

7. Walk the Great Wall of China (I’m now thinking I’d like to cycle it)

8. See the Northern Lights (Attempted in Dec 2016 but unsuccessful)

9. Stay at the Ice Hotel

10. Visit the Pyramids in Egypt

11. Go to Disney World in Florida

12. Kiwi Tour (I’d love to do NZ in a camper!)

13. Own a Production Company

14. Live in New York (I’m now thinking elsewhere, short term of course!)

15. Have my own horse(s) (Not travel related but probably the most ambitious on the list)

16. Horse Ranch Holiday

17. Visit Morocco (Done, but not the original trip I had planned with D)

18. Go to the beach from The Beach in Thailand (I’ve currently got as far as Ko Phi Phi)

19. Journey on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train

20. Finish the Thirty Before Thirty Challenge

21. Complete Hotel and Restaurant List Although these are continually growing so will probably go on forever!

22. Own a B&B / Guest House

23. Attend Oktoberfest in Munich

24. Trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu 

25. Dog sledging in Scandinavia

26. Visit Lapland 

27. Help build houses in remote areas

28. Shark dive in South Africa

29. Hot air balloon ride

30. Horse back ride on a beach / in the waves

31. Volunteer in an orphanage abroad

32. Whale watching in the wild 

33. Visit Chernobyl 

34. Float in the Dead Sea 

No doubt I’ll update the list from time to time so be sure to check back when you can!

If you haven’t already got your own Bucket List, perhaps create one – its a super lovely feeling when you tick them off 🙂

Happy Listing!

      I have a feeling the second page was added later on, but still it was a dream I had since I started university at 18yrs so not much later really 🙂
