Odds & Ends Bucket List

 

So I started a “travel” bucket list page of places that I’d like to go. Then I realized that on the actual list “places, things, and accomplishments I want to have done before I die”, there were a lot of things that were left off the “travel” bucket list page.

Some of these might seem silly to others—but that is the beauty of making our own bucket lists—its things we want to accomplish. Some of those might overlap with others, but some might be unique. So I decided that I should start another “bucket” list page for everything else to be linked to in some form or another.

So other things I would like do before I die:

Take a Cruise

Parasailing

White-water rafting

Canoeing in the boundary waters

Set foot on all continents (yeah—this one should maybe moved to the travel page—but I’ll leave it here for now).

Hike through the Grand Canyon

Live in at least 2 different countries with completely different cultures

Learn at least one foreign language

Swim with whale sharks

Scuba dive

Get in the best shape of my life (This will be semi-linked to the fitness section of the site).

Volunteer 6 months aboard

Have my own business

Try rock climbing

Spend Christmas on the beach

Find a job I love or create the job I love

Sleep under the stars

Write a book (or at least try)

Plant a tree

Cross a country using public transportation

Backpack though another country

Take a class you’ve always wanted

Fly a kite

Be an extra in a movie

Travel at least once by train (long distance)

Eat a fried dessert at a state fair

Make time to learn a new skill once every two-three months

Become a Master trainer in Country Heat, CIZE, or PiYo

Run a 5K and a 10K

Overcome at least one big phobia/fear

Ride in a hot air balloon

Give a public speech (or a talk at a conference)

Paint and frame your own paintings

See a solar eclipse

Dive into the water from a cliff

And probably more as I think of them and as I check a few of these off the list.
