Birthdays & Bucket Lists
I’ve always kind of gone back & forth on my personal feelings about bucket lists…..I mean, the world is filled with awesome experiences so I never really saw the point in listing out a few and saying “before I die I will do these things”. Also I need to be very clear that I don’t much care for the name. But I’m starting to come around, I think. Annette at Bucket List Journey makes a pretty convincing pitch here.
So I’m going to start small. Putting together a little list of experience won’t be exclusionary to any unnamed experiences, however it will be more like a vision board of badass places that I need to get to. I will be referring to this as a B list going forward, more birthday list than bucket list (for the time being).
I just wrote down the top five that came to mind, however this is far from a complete list and these won’t be the only experiences that I open myself up to in the coming years. I’d love to hear about your B list, if you have one!
The Baby Got Balance B List
Cage Diving with Great White Sharks in South Africa
If you know me at all I won’t have to explain this one, but if you’re unfamiliar just know that sharks are the coolest IMO. My husband has already declared that if he’s in country with me he will be waiting on the boat.
Surfing in Indonesia
I used to surf but haven’t in a while…however if I’m in Indonesia I’m going to make sure I do at least once! Note: I will probably get wrecked but I’ll make sure I get it on camera.
Road Trip through Italy
Grabbing that extra insurance and cruising around! I know for a fact that Palazzo Margherita will be a stop (I can’t get enough of the Coppola Properties – more to come on this soon).
Visiting an Elephant Sanctuary
Because a legit sanctuary is way better than some shitty animal tourism trap. It’s a dream of mine to spend a day at a sanctuary (hopefully helping but I’ll take whatever I can get)!
Sunrise at Tikal
I’ve been fortunate to check out the Mayan ruins of Xunantunich and Caracol in Belize and but haven’t quite made my way into Guatemala to Tikal…yet. You can actually start your hike through the park, in the dark, to the top of the main structure to catch the sunrise. Hoping to check this one off soon…..
These are my top five currently, however there are plenty more *wink wink* that I don’t the need to list out right now. I might consider putting together a complete B list of 50-100 or so in the future but for now this is it.
What’s on your B list? I’d love to hear about it and be inspired, make sure to let me know in the comments!
