16 Apr My Bucket List aka Living List
I decided to walk the talk and create my bucket list. You’ll remember that in my last blog post on how to travel without leaving your house, one of the things I talked about was creating a bucket list.
What’s a Bucket List?
A Bucket list is a list of places to visit and things to do before die you leave this world. A few people have coined other terms such as a “Best Life List” or a “Living list” and this just means a list of things to do while you’re alive. Personally, I like the term “living list” better as it sounds less final.
Another reason I prefer to call my list a living list is it’s less static. In other words, the list is alive hence it can be changed or switched as I evolve.
My living list is very diverse; some are career-related, others are adventure inspired, some would be ticked off in the near future, and others don’t have a foreseeable completion date. I like that it’s diverse and I will definitely be expanding it in the future.
Take a look at my living list and let me know if any of things on my list match the things on yours:
Visit all 7 Natural wonders of the world: Waterfalls, Pyramids, Monuments, these are a few of my favourite things.
Go on a street food tour with Mark Wiens in Bangkok, Thailand
Spend a night directly under the Aurora Borealis – can be seen in Alaska, Canada, Iceland, Greenland, Norway, Sweden and Finland.
Do an East African tour – Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya
Travel non-stop for 3 months

I think traveling straight for 3 months looks like something I’d love to do too.

Living list… I like this coinage better!
Traveling non-stop for three months seems like it would be exciting to watch or follow through someone else’s eyes because I’m such a risk-averse person. Lol!
I definitely want to tour East Africa and speak at a conference! And seeing an original broadway musical is definitely on my list!!!
