Bucket List

Dear fellow adventurers, digital nomads, and dreamers – welcome to your bucket list.

Gather around for today, we are diving headfirst into the exhilarating world of bucket lists. You know, those tantalizing to-do lists that make your heart race, your palms sweat, and your inner wanderluster (is that even a word?) leap for joy. Buckle up, because we’re about to embark on a journey that’ll make your mundane Mondays look like a stroll in the park.

A Bucket List? You Mean a “Before I Kick the Bucket” List?

Hmmmm, perhaps that could have been said little differently – but in a word – yes!  Before we set sail on the sea of adventures, let’s clear the air about what a bucket list really is.

What is a bucket list?

In plain English, it’s a lineup of heart-pounding, soul-stirring escapades you’re determined to conquer before you shuffle off this mortal coil. No, it’s not just for adrenaline junkies or jet-setters; it’s your personal roadmap to infuse every day with a hint of daring.

The Art of Crafting Your Adventure Manifesto

This is where the magic happens. Crafting your bucket list is like conjuring a spell, except you’re summoning life-changing experiences instead of fire-breathing dragons (though, that does sound pretty cool – or hot as the case may be!).

Here’s the secret sauce:

  • Start Simple: Remember those daydreams you had as a child? Those count. Want to ride a unicorn? Well, maybe not a unicorn, but how about horseback riding through lush landscapes?
  • Predictable Pleasures: Why reinvent the wheel? There’s a reason classics are, well, classic. Think swimming with dolphins or sipping champagne atop the Eiffel Tower. They’re tried-and-true for a reason!
  • Embrace the Quirk: Ever thought about taking elephants for a spa day? Or helping craft Peruvian jewellery? Quirky is the new cool, apparently.
  • Chase the Unconventional: Your bucket list, your rules. Want to sleep in an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora? Done. How about strutting your stuff at Oktoberfest (that usually happens in September not October, but go figure)? Absolutely. The world’s your oyster.
  • Childhood Dreams Redux: Recall those dreams of becoming a space explorer or a pirate? Channel that enthusiasm into exploring a space simulator or sailing the high seas on a pirate-themed cruise.
  • A Dash of Inspiration: Can’t quite decide? Turn to the vast realms of the internet, from Pinterest to travel books, where inspiration hides behind every click and page turn – and if you run out if ideas, ask ChatGPT for help.

As you scribble down your heart’s desires, let your imagination run wild. From defying gravity in a hot air balloon to summiting the tallest peaks, the sky’s not even the limit anymore. 

Part List, Part Vision Board

Think about how you want to display and use your bucket list.  Some people like an actual list, while others like to get pictures, stick them onto a board, and create their bucket list that way.

The Grand Unveiling – Your Personal Bucket List

Drumroll, please! It’s time to unveil your masterpiece, your magnum opus, your personal adventure bible = your very own bucket list.

The Power of the Checkmark

Now the biggest challenge awaits you.  Don’t just let that list gather digital dust.

Channel your inner explorer and start crossing items off! Time to turn those dreams into reality. Remember, it’s not about the end game; it’s about the exhilarating journey.

Carpe Diem (excellent movie if you haven’t seen it!)

So, there you have it. Your mission, should you choose to accept it (and trust me, you should), is to create the bucket list of all bucket lists. It’s about embracing life’s wild ride, throwing caution to the wind, and diving headfirst into the sea of extraordinary experiences. What are you waiting for? Your bucket list beckons, and the world is your playground.

Go forth, explore, and make those checkmarks your badge of honor. Your ultimate bucket list is your ticket to a life well-lived, and my friend, it’s time to seize the day, carpe diem-style!

My Bucket List of over 1,400 things to do and/or done!

It’s funny, a few years ago I found a bucket list I had created about 10 years earlier and to my amazement, I had achieved over 70% of what was on that bucket list!  …even though I think I probably just wrote it, pondered it for a day or two and then put it in a notebook, not to be seen again for a decade…

So, here is my updated bucket list (and some other cool things I’ve done) including items already completed.

Unlike the earlier bucket list to which I referred, this is not a “I feel hugely compelled to do each of these things!” list.  Rather, it is a guide… 

Update as of January 2020 – I am no longer maintaining this bucket list – I started adding to it almost daily – and then as I would explore places on my list, forget to cross them off, and so on…  but exploring this list is still a good reflection on some of the more memorable things I have done, and may give you some ideas for your bucket list…

So, how do I keep track of it all?

Now, I simply use my Google Maps app to keep track of places in my bucket list I want to explore, and put into the notes section any relevant comments or references to texts etc…

This is what my map looks like, just of the UK!

If I happen to be looking for some ideas, I might scroll through the list and see if anything jumps out at me…

If I happen to be in a particular place, since I have each of the geographic items below plugged into a visual map, I can easily see if there is something locally that is on my list I might like to explore…

…and more than half of the items on my list I have actually achieved, even if I haven’t come back to cross them off!

I hope this list inspires you to create your bucket list!

Sending love and smiles…
