My Bucket List Perfected, Let the Adventure Begin.

At the end of December I asked for ideas for what to put on my own, not to mention very first bucket list. They are so popular now a days. It seems everyone has a set of ambitions that they would like to achieve – wether it be in the next year, before they reach 40 or before they die. Take the TV series “An Idiot Abroad” – the entire show is based up of events evolving from a bucket list, some of which have inspired me. Now I am an ambitious person, very ambitious. I have a set of aims that I set myself every year – like a new years resolution. Do I achieve them? For the most part it’s a no. Thats why when I decided to create a bucket list, I wanted it to be things I could actually do in my life time. Of course  I have some outrageous tasks but if I really put my mind to it all of these are easily achievable. Not only does having a bucket list give me something to occupy myself with – I promise with every one ticked off I will blog about the experience no matter how disastrous it is. So here goes guys – my one and only bucket list.

HELP: My Very First “Bucket List” Needs Inspiration!

Before I stumbled upon the blogging world, I had never before thought of having a “bucket list”. Of course ive had a list in my mind of things I just HAVE to do before I die – I don’t see the point in the whole ” I must do this before im forty, blah blah blah” what I can do now im pretty sure I can do when im forty, it isn’t that old. But no ive never had a definitive list. After endlessly looking through a variety of travel blogs it seems to me everyone has one, so not one to be left out im taking the plunge. I’m going to set a list of things I want to have achieved by the time my travels come to an end – and many items on the list to keep me going way beyond the next two years. I’ve already done some pretty amazing things on my travels so far, I have quad biked through the Egyptian desert and the Jamaican jungle, ive travelled by tuk tuk in Sri Lanka, ive rode an elephant and my personal favourite – I climbed a waterfall. Amazing experiences and a few ticked off my “list”. Now I can come up with a few things that I must do…but I need suggestions. I want you guys to help me create my very own bucket list 🙂

So here’s what I have come up with so far…

  • Climb Sydney Harbour Bridge
  • Dive the Great Barrier  Reef
  • Sail the Whitsundays
  • Do a Skydive
  • Bungee Jump!
  • Swim with Dolphins – and Sharks!
  • Learn a new language.
  • Go on a proper Safari.
  • Take a road trip.
  • Learn to surf
  • Create me very own signature dish.
  • Climb a tree.
  • See the 7 wonders of the world.
  • Go on a zipline.
  • Travel Route 66
  • See Cirque du Soleil
  • Learn to sail a boat.
  • Write a novel.
  • Ski a Glacier.
  • Go skinny dipping in the ocean.

What else can you come up with – I want it to be a list of 100, you know the typical ” 100 things to do before you die”.  Hopefully I can tick a lot of these off on my travels down under, but I want things that can last me a lifetime. Some of my suggestions are silly things everyone should do – but I havent got round to it. Help me add to my list guys – it needs to be complete for the start of 2012…
