MY TRAVEL BUCKET LIST
COLLECT MOMENTS, NOT THINGS
A Bucket List: Things you want to do, accomplish, achieve or experience before you go belly up, become worm food or what has been more widely known as ‘kick the bucket’. Now, i’m not expecting to die anytime soon (breathes a deep sigh of relief) but it will happen, and when I do pass on to a ‘better place’ the only thing I’ll be able to take with me are my memories, made here on this wonderful piece of rock - the people I’ve met - the places i’ve been.
Around 18 months ago I made a decision to take a break from the hectic whirlwind that is LIFE and subsequently made a list of places I want to travel to and things I want to see or do whilst i’m there.
The list was extensive and that’s when it hit me - I HAD BEST GET STARTED. So I set off on a 3 month solo backpacking trip around South America where I could tick off the first 3 things on my travel bucket list;
Hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu
Swim with Sea Lions in the Galapagos
Drink Malbec and eat Steak in Argentina
I’ve been back from that amazing trip around 9 months now and have settled quite nicely back into routine, a job, a boyfriend, an apartment, a puppy… but I don’t think my feet will stay grounded for long...
Here’s the next 10 places on my travel bucket list:
SNORKEL IN THE GREAT BARRIER REEF
EAT A HOT DOG IN NYC
SEE THE GREAT PYRAMIDS OF EGYPT
RIDE A BICYCLE IN BEIJING
HUSKY SLED IN THE ARCTIC CIRCLE
GO ON SAFARI IN KENYA
RELAX IN ICELAND'S BLUE LAGOON
SEE THAT SUNSET IN SANTORINI
DRIVE ROUTE 66
DANCE IN RIO CARNIVAL
