Bucket List {updated}

If you have been following me since the beginning, you have already seen my bucket list (original post). Since I have crossed off a few things, I'm deciding to post it again, also because I've added a few things.

To me a bucket list is a great way to visualize what it is you want to do. If it is written down somewhere, it's easier to be motivated to make things happen and actually cross items off. At least it is for me :)

My list is pretty long, and I admit, some items are far fetched. But a girl can dream right?

Things I Want to Do Before My Time is Up

Visit all of the Hawaiian Islands
Scuba dive a sunken ship
Swim with dolphins
Travel to a different country
Road trip through Mexico and Central America
Be a part of a service trip in another country
Snorkel the Great Barrier Reef
See Dave Matthews Band in concert
Visit every state in the United States of America
Backpack through Europe
Hike the entire Na Pali Coastline
Go sailing through the Mediterranean
Go sky diving (only when I'm ready)
Ride a taxi in New York City
Stand at the top of the Eiffel Tower
Hike part of the Rocky Mountains
See the Statue of Liberty in person
Eat real Italian in Italy
Go to a real Broadway show in NYC
See the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade live
Road trip around Australia
Visit the Harry Potter World
Go on a cruise
Walk along the Great Wall of China
Learn a new language
Ride an elephant in India
Be the owner of a business
Gamble in Las Vegas
Complete a marathon
Complete a half marathon
Be the subject of a photo shoot
Become a mother
Visit the Central Park Zoo
Have my fortune read by a tarot card reader
See the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Get hypnotized
Use a ouija board
Go to a movie premier
Release a floating lantern into the sky
Try a vegetarian diet for 2 weeks
Try a vegan diet for 2 weeks
Go snowboarding
Learn how to sail
Collect tiny bottles of sand from beaches around the world
Ride in a horse drawn carriage in the snow
Fly first class
Write a letter to Juliet
See the Northern Lights
Hike part of the Himalayas

Now that this little beauty has come in...

...I'll soon be well on my way to crossing off more. 

Do you have a bucket list? Are you crossing any items off this summer?

Wow great list I have done some of the things on your list, I have: swam with the dolphins, I have currently been traveling all around the world, I have been snorkeling but not at the Barrier reef, I rode a taxi in New York, Saw the statue of Liberty, Been on about 6 cruises, I owned a business, I gambled in Las Vegas, I rode an elephant although not in India I have also rode camels in the desert in Dubai, I rode in a horse drawn carriage in Montreal, I have flown first class.

I have also went white water jet boating, hiked the jungle in Honduras, tried wind surfing, took tennis lessons, learned how to ski.

I am crossing off things on my bucket list because my hubby and I have been traveling the world for the last couple of years. But I still want to travel around Europe, do a yoga retreat, stay in a remote place in the far east. I want to do an Alaskan cruise, Stay at Sandals resort in Exuma islands (I have been to Exuma it was breathtaking). I want to try good sushi (but no raw fish), see the Eiffel tower, Stay at the underwater hotel in Dubai when we go back.

Girl you've never used a ouija board?! I can't remember a sleepover without one :-)

I love a lot of your items, but the #1 on your list I've always wanted to do is the Northern Lights. I think it would just be amazing!

My "goal" has always been to act in a country music video, but I'm no actress and definitely not a model or dancer so it's a lovely dream I keep dreaming of :-) But I love your list! I might copy you and make one myself.

What an awesome list! :)

Get to traveling! Scuba diving a sunken ship sounds amazing but totally terrifying at the same time. I just keep thinking of that scene in The Little Mermaid where there's a shark creeping around outside haha! Love this bucket list :)

Ashley said...

What an adventurous bucket list! The only things I have done from your list was to be the subject of a photo shoot and to become a mother. One thing that used to unrealistically be on my bucket list was to become a jockey.. Now number one is to take a family trip. It's funny how things change!

I would like to eat pizza and pasta in Italy!
