I never really thought I had a bucket list, it was always more of a case of seeing something and thinking “Oh I’d like to do that” or “I’d like to go there”.
But more I travel, the more I realise that crossing stuff off a list is actually a good idea.
Bucket Lists are really just an extreme version of a ‘to do list’. You write stuff down (or pin it to your Bucket List Pinterest board) and think that you will get around to it one day. Sure some of the things seem a little far-fetched like arriving at the airport with no ticket or plan & jumping on the first flight.. I mean who does that!?!?!
My planner’s brain is having a conniption just thinking about it BUT it is on my bucket list.
Some other things on my Pinterest bucket list include:
- stop biting my nails (still working on that)
- go to the moon (it could happen!)
- snorkel (might be a bit hard since I’m not a fan of water)
- meet Robbie Williams (I’ve met pretty much everyone else but Robert Peter Williams still alludes me)
- sing karaoke (not sure if the world is ready for my singing)
- drive a red convertible in Hawaii on my 40th birthday (this is never gonna happen since my 40th is long gone.. I could change that to my 50th though! 🤔 )
Then there is my ‘Travel’ Bucket List, which I actually am crossing things off. Of course I am adding to it all the time too, but that’s kind of the fun of it.
Here are just some of thing that I have actually crossed off my travel bucket list:
So do I think Bucket List’s are worth it?
Yes I do.
Some of the places I have been to, I probably wouldn’t have gone if they hadn’t been on a list of some short. I get inspired by other travellers and the photos they post or the places they blog about. If something really catches my eye, then I will add it to my list.
Sure it might take me awhile to get through it and there are some things I might never do but not having a goal to aim for means you are forever stuck in one place.
And that just isn’t for me.
