1. Inca Trail to Macchu Pichu (will tick that off in 4 months!)

2. Run a marathon. I don’t even like running that much but I just feel I have a marathon in me. We are hoping to do the London marathon in 2016/17 (plus it’s an excuse to go to London)

3. Build our (financially attainable) dream house (with my dream kitchen/entertaining area in it) 

4. Have a white Christmas. I live in Australia. I’ve spent like 5 christmases in the UK/Japan etc. but it’s never snowed that time of year where I was.

5. Ride a mule down the Grand Canyon/along the colarado river etc. We didn’t have time when we were there last year on a tour and our bike ride got cancelled because of the rain 🙁

3) travel to England to see my friends and family and to Germany and Czech for Fi. New Zealand for our belated honeymoon.  

4) foster/adopt/rescue as many animals as possible as well as spend as much time volunteering. 

5) get my degree and get a job I love that will make a difference. 


Some of these are more short term. But these are the goals I base most of my life choices on.

  3. Find a job that fulfils me

I haven’t sat and thought about a bucket list in a while.

  • Wedding: May 2015

catpeaches:  What a fun post! I can’t believe how similar we are too, I’m doing/have done 3 of 5 of your list 🙂 I’ve been to NZ, it is a stunning country, you’ll love it! I’ve written a children’s story and intend to illustrate it too but it’s been on hold for a while. I am inspired to continue, thanks 🙂

And, FI and I are getting married in May 2015 hehe

The bucket list just gets longer and longer as we travel more but some other things include:

– Eat at The Fat Duck Restaurant, Heston Blumenthal<br />

– Go to World Cup 2018 (we just got back from Brazil and we’re hooked)

– See all 7 continents and 7 wonders of world

– This one’s out there… maybe space travel if it becomes affordable in our lifetime

– Record a studio album

Thanks for brightening up my arvo with exciting thoughts of the future.

Great topic! My bucket list involves a lot of travel, which really doesn’t fit with our lifestyle, so many of these will be unfulfilled dreams… and that’s okay. 🙂

1. Travel to Europe

2. Go on a hot air balloon ride (we are planning this for our anniversary this year)

3. Zipline through the rainforest

4. See the Aurora Borealis

5. See an erupting volcano with an active lava flow

1) buy a house within the next 7 years (where we live is so expensive, so unless you are comfortable buying a foreclosed home, then you have to save for a few years) and being that we are going to start TTC soon, babies are expensive. So our goal is to save as much as possible

2) Go to Bora Bora

3) Go to Hawaii

4) Learn to speak Spanish. Its embarrasing that my mother is Cuban, and I can’t speak Spanish. I do blame her though! SHe never taught me bc she was embarrased of her heritage bc my father was Norwegian. 

5) Go on an African safari
