Before Kicking the Bucket.

As you've probably figured out by now, I like to travel. Unfortunately, while there is so much to do in this world, we're all marked by our very own expiration dates. Morbid? Maybe. But true.  Fortunately, I've had the opportunity to already conquer quite a few items on my wish list from Scuba Diving in the Red Sea to floating like styrofoam in the Dead Sea, but I'm never satisfied.

On that note, below is my ever-growing travel "bucket list". You'll find that some of these are your typical wish list items while others may be a little more unique in nature. I plan to keep adding to this list as I think of others.

In no specific order...

1. Eat sushi in Tokyo
2. Attend the Cannes Film Festival
3. Play roulette in Monte Carlo
4. Scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef
5. Party with my favorite DJ's in Ibiza
6. Snowboard in the Alps
7. Watch the World Cup live
8. Drink a cup of coffee while watching the lions at a Kenyan Safari Villa
9. Shop in Paris and Milan
10. Eat at El Bulli
11. Walk where Jesus walked in Jerusalem.
12. Get lost on Phi Phi Island, Thailand

So, what's on your list?

Shaun, I definitely would love to visit the Pyramids and the Taj Mahal as well, including the other wonders of the world. Traveling Mike, wow, I never thought of that. You'd see so many different places completely diverse in nature!

I really like your bucket list, Shaun. Mauritius is AWESOME - I've been with my family a few times and Victoria Falls is an amazing sight to see :) The pyramids and cruising the Nile are on my list too :)

there is never enough time is there. I must admit I have crossed many things off my list already (and at 25 i think i have a few years left to do the rest)
I have seen the pyramids, I have drank vodka in Russia, climbed the eiffel tower, shopped at the turkish bazaars, had a red curry in thailand, but the things that are left are
1. eat curry in India
2. stay in an over water villa in maldives
3. swim with great whites off cape town
4. see machu pichu and the amazon rainforest
5. drive around new zealand in a camper van
6. float in the dead sea
7. hike the great wall of china
and the list goes on.
look forward to hearing other travellers dreams...

love the bucket list, I also want to eat sushi in Tokyo, see the Vic falls and ride a small boat down the Akovango river among other destinations. I have had a cup of coffee and lunch in the Maasai Mara watching lions, it was awesome and swam in the red sea (not as fancy as scuba diving)its beautiful. So many places not enough time or opportunity sigh.. we try :)
