I Hate the Term ‘Bucket List’ but…


Last year I turned 40 *gulp* At the start of the year I made a list of things I wanted to do before my birthday. Some of those things I managed to do and some I didn’t but having the list really made me focus on what I did want from life and made me actually try harder to go out and get it. So today I thought I would make myself another list of things that I want to do before I die because I am really lacking focus at the moment and am not really sure where I am going with my life. I really don’t like the term bucket list… I’ve no idea why but there is just something about it.

We decided a few years ago that we would forget buying each other presents on birthdays and opt for an experience instead. James took me indoor skydiving last year, I took him quad biking, Boo got a trip to Warner Bros Studio tour and Bugs went trampolining so we are keeping to our little rule but I’m terrible and just cannot let a birthday go by without buying a few presents too!

Anyway without further ado, here is my list of experiences I would like to do before my time here on planet earth ends, having a list to work through really helps me with my goals and I also have them in my mind if someone asks what I want for Christmas etc.

  1. Get married.
  2. Have a Supercar experience.
  3. Eat at a Michelin starred restaurant.
  4. Go White Water Rafting.
  5. Drive a Jet Ski… preferably somewhere hot.
  6. Shower under a waterfall… again preferable somewhere hot.
  7. Go Whale watching.
  8. Rent a glass igloo in Finland to watch the Northern lights.
  9. Ride an Elephant.
  10. Watch the sunrise and set at a beautiful beach with my other half.
  11. Soak in the Hot Springs in Iceland.
  12. Float in the Dead Sea.
  13. See a shooting star –  I have never seen one!!!!
  14. Go on a helicopter ride.
  15. Get a tattoo… just a small one.
  16. Take the kids to visit Father Christmas in Lapland.
  17. Take the kids to Disneyland.
  18. Go Zorbing on water.
  19. Move to my perfect home.
  20. Spend a night in a proper tree house.

I’m sure that there are lots of things that I have missed off the list so I am going to keep adding to it and crossing things off once completed.

What would you add if it was your bucket list?

    I hate the term bucket list as well but it is a good idea to list all the things you want to do! I also would love to dine at a Michelin starred restaurant and see the northern lights
