Things to Add to Your Bucket List

I found a few suggestions for things to put on your bucket list online  and decided to see how many I had done already, how many I still had to do and how many I was never going to attempt.

Just because someone else wants to bungee jump at the Grand Canyon doesn’t mean it has to be on your list. So have a browse through other peoples ideas and check off what’s important to you and what makes you say “Nah, I’ll pass”

Here’s a list compiled from some of the lists I’ve read to get you started:

  1. See the Northern Lights
  2. Visit Paris
  3. See the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City
  4. Visit a German Christmas Market
  5. Tour Havana in a classic car, Cuba
  6. Visit Stonehenge
  7. Ride a Gondola in Venice
  8. Watch the Fireworks at Disneyland
  9. Take a Road Trip Across America
  10. See the Hollywood Sign
  11. See the Grand Canyon Arizona
  12. Go whitewater rafting in the Smoky Mountains
  13. See a Broadway Musical
  14. Go to the Top of the Statue of Liberty and/or the Empire State Building
  15. Go to the Top of the Shard in London
  16. Go to the Top of the CN Tower, Toronto
  17. Walk on the Great Wall of China
  18. Visit Tokyo
  19. Discover Machu Picchu, Peru
  20. Visit a Chocolate Factory
  21. Go to a Music Festival
  22. Swim with Dolphins
  23. Snorkel the Great Barrier Reef
  24. Go Ziplining
  25. Go Skydiving
  26. Ride in a Hot Air Balloon
  27. Ride in a Helicopter
  28. Fly First Class
  29. Get tickets to see the Olympics
  30. Visit All Seven Continents

I’ve been lucky and have managed to tick off a number of the items listed above.

There are also some of the items that I’ve come close to but not completed. For example, I’ve been to Venice a number of times but have yet to ride a Gondola and I’ve swam with sharks but not dolphins.

There are other experiences that I’ve got planned for the future, like visiting a German Christmas Market which has seasonal availability.

And there are a couple of items that I’m not going to attempt (eg Go Skydiving).

How many have you done, how many are still to do and how many are “Nah, I’ll pass” items?
