My Bucket List

My Bucket List is the list of things I’d like to do before I die. I got the idea from Andi at My Beautiful Adventures. She’s accomplished quite a bit of her list so far.

I plan to try and achieve at least half of these if not more and will cross them off the list as I complete them. This list is not in any particular order, just random as they come to mind and I’ll probably add on to it as I discover new things I want to do.

    Maybe you can plan a visit to the Stockholm Archipelago in the summer and sail on a 40′ sail boat. Would that qualify for a week on a yacht? I can ask captain Knatt to teach you how to sail. Make sure to include the summer solstice and experience dusk between midnight and 2 am and daylight the other 22 hours. This would knock down 2 or 3 items off your bucket list.

    Nice list! Makes me want to publish mine. I hope you get to them all soon and have to add to it =)

      Thanks B! I know it’s long, but you have to have something to aim for right? 😉

      Definitely publish yours! It’ll help you keep things in perspective and see how far (or not far) you’re coming along to achieving your goals.

  3. Well Marianney you’re going to be very, very busy. Just as well you look quite young.

    Just read this – I have a bucket list too… Just thought I’d say the sailing stuff I’ve done and it makes me sea sick! The Hubster’s a sailor! Visited Chichen Itza and as I am scared of heights didn’t go up! Sorry very doom and gloom.
    I did work for an animal charity for 5 years though and that was pretty good!

      note to self – never comment on blogs when tired – you just sound so negative 😉

      • haha you didn’t sound negative! yeah the sailing might make me seasick too, but i’d have to take meds before going! we did go sailing in the virgin islands 2 years ago and dramamine worked wonders!

    Nice article… Ibiza city is arguably one of the best cities in the Euro… Ibiza has a lot to offer when it comes to entertainment. Another thing to mention is the great nightlife this city has to offer… I would definitely recommend Ibiza Town to any tourist that wants to have fun in a interesting city.
