Wow! Awesome bucket list. I’m going to have to start one myself now! I will have to tailor it to family locations first for awhile as I have a 3yr old and a 9/mo old.
Good luck! Thanks for checking my blog out!
This blog is awesome, let me know if you want to chat Spain…I just got back from a whole semester in Alicante!
Thanks so much! I love Spain!
I enjoy reading your blog! I would also like to say that I have traveled to “eastern” Africa in Rwanda and Tanzania and have done safari experiences both in Tanzania and in South Africa if you would like any information on safaris in general, what to expect, good companies, etc. – I would be happy to share such information!
Thanks so much!!
wow..im super impressed at your adventure side…
you have done skydiving and so many awesome things.. 😀
hats-off to you 🙂
Thank you very much! I’m becoming more fearless the older I get!
The Bahamas didn’t make your list of places to visit? 😦
If you come here, you can sleep on this stranger’s couch! 🙂
A few things are on your list that I may steal for mine. A week at a silent retreat would be wonderful, as would a lot of other things.
Skydiving! Did you blog about it?! It’s the most amaaaaazing experience.
I’ve been to Norweigan Cruise Line’s personal “Bahama” Island. Does that count as a visit? Thanks for the couch offer…you never know! I think I did blog about the skydiving. It was a true experience! 🙂
Love your bucket list. Inspires me to get mine written down and crossed off. I was recenrly in Istanbul, Turkey and visited the Sofia Haggia and Blue Mosque. Incredible! Been to 20 countries myself. Have a great day.
Thanks Lisa…I can’t wait to visit Turkey!
HI, your bucket list has inspired me to make mine… Will start today itself and work towards it..
Love the Bucket List. My Now Husband was born in Istalbul. I’ve been to Turkey twice now and we are going back in October. It is astonishingly beautiful, the people are wonderful, the history is overwhelming. I’ve also been to a sweat lodge, conducted by two Native American elders. That was a less-than-optimal experience (too many people packed into the sweat). I’m going to add a Bucket List on my blog. You have inspired me.
Maybe I won’t try a sweat lodge! Glad you’re making a bucket list!
That’s a long bucket list…and a nice one too.
I have been to Switzerland…but would love to go to Interlaken!!
We have a lot in common! This is a lot like my Handprint List, but I still haven’t made a dent in my travel plans. Oh well, hopefully I have a long life ahead of me!
I’m sure you will have many adventures in the coming years!
Awesome list! Looks like you are working through it! I see Prague on your list – very cool! I just recently booked for Christmas in Prague – it looks magical! Can’t wait!
I am almost 40 – have been traveling for a number of years and look forward to many more! Thanks for sharing your travel thoughts and dreams!
Wonderful blog. I’ve been to all 7 continents and am now filling in the countries. If you want a travelling partner to Turkey, email! Single woman, no kids, no husband. The world is my oyster! Just need to plan…Linda
Hi Linda –
I need to catch up with you…actually I had a trip to Turkey and five Scandinavian countries planned back in June, but cancelled because my mother was ill. She passed away in June. Anyway, it’s still on the list. You sound really positive…that’s great! I’ll be gone on two back to back trips starting this morning until mid-August. Hope to talk with you then! Have a great summer! ~Sherry~
I love your Bucket List – I really should add one to my blog too 🙂
Maybe you would like to see my travel blog too? You can find me on Blogger @ susanreadertravels
Like you I have just turned 50 and love to travel the world – mostly on a budget 🙂
Currently living in Dubai – come visit!
When you finally get around to coming to South Africa look me up – I am originally American but live in Cape Town and just had my cousin out from Vermont… we toured Cape Town for 5 days then spent 6 in the Kruger National Park – he was blown away by the animals, we saw the Big 5 in one morning! You can find me through my blog on wordpress, Deep Raspberry. Regards Claire
Hi Claire – I checked out your blog…glad you got all of your redecorating done and had a good time with family! I’ll be back! ~Sherry~
Excellent bucket list. I am actually a student from Michigan currently studying abroad in Ankara, Turkey. As my first experience of international travel its been absolutely amazing. I hope to make traveling a habit, much as you have.
I had a trip planned to go to Turkey for 3 weeks by myself followed by the Scandinavian countries for 3 weeks, but my mother became ill so I canceled it. She passed away in June. Glad you love it and I can’t wait to visit there!
You should visit Singapore!
Burma’s such a beautiful country, you’ll fall in love with it! 🙂
I see South Africa is still on your list … so now you know someone in Cape Town … not quite sure what couchsurfing is, but since I am still a stranger, you could cross two things off at once by visiting my couch in Cape Town.
I would love to visit Cape Town…let’s keep in touch! ~Sherry~
I have been privileged to have travelled to almost all the countries that I’ve wanted to in my 50+ years … but haven’t travelled in quite a while now.
Both my sons are now at university and I have been self-employed for 6 years this September, so time to start travelling again, which is why it was cool to find your blog … you are an inspiration!
Thanks Brian…what places are on your list?
Congratulations on being freshly pressed!! You’ve inspired me to update my own bucket list now. Only problem is, I haven’t bothered to list all the places I want to go because I can’t think of a single place that I don’t want to visit!!
I feel the same way…but I love the great outdoors the best of all…so some of the top places to go to on my iist are based on that. For example, Norway (the Fjords), New Zealand, etc.
Ha. I can see I’m not the only one made curious by your being Freshly Pressed – on which many congratulations! – I thought you’d have a trillion comments on there, so this page might be quieter! Love what I’ve read so far, and will most certainly be back to read more!
Thanks and hope to check yours out also!
I love your bucket list. It sounds so similar to mine! I am close to hitting 40 and hope to keep moving, traveling, trekking, writing and seeing the world, in addition to raising my 2 young kids. I just subscribed and look forward to reading your blog. Sounds very interesting!
Thanks and I’ll check out your blog when I have more time!
Just discovered your blog. Love it! You have inspired me to create my own bucket list. I too would like to be a better PUBIC speaker!
Ha Ha…maybe I should leave it misspelled for laughs!
A small, but funny spelling mistake : “Join Toastmaster to become a better PUBIC speaker”.
Might have something to do with The Vagina Monologues.
Great bucket list by the way.
Ha Ha…thanks for catching that!
I compiled a very similar list using the same categories but published it as private. I am now motivated to make that list public 🙂
Your experiences blow my mind and I wish I could achieve half of what you’ve done.
Love finding other bloggers above 40 on WordPress 🙂
I just came across your blog and I LOVE it! So inspiring and I’ve been compiling my bucket list for my blog lately. A lot of which you have conquered, really cool to see. Keep going on the fabulous journey =)
I’m glad you enjoyed reading. I checked yours out also and you’re beautiful. Just remember, you can do anything you want to do. Don’t worry about the details…just narrow down the top two or three things you want to do and move in that direction!
