The first bucket list I posted really just skimmed the surface. Basically I wrote about my burning desire to go to Malta, the Canary Islands, and the Republic of Georgia with several other honorable mentions. For the full post, you can go here. Since then, I’ve come up with a more extensive bucket list with specific experiences listed instead of just listing places. I did want to keep it reasonable, though, since I fully plan on actually doing these things eventually!
These are in no particular order, either (that would be nearly-impossible for me to rank them).
Hike in the Caucasus Mountains in the Republic of Georgia
Enjoy the parades and music at the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria carnival
Visit the Xwejni Salt Pans in Gozo (Malta)
Climb Mount Fuji
Explore Croatia’s national parks and UNESCO World Heritage Sites
Tour the Postojna Cave system and Škocjan Caves in Slovenia
Visit the South Island in New Zealand and see if I like it better than the North Island
Road trip around the Isle of Skye
Hike up the trail to Machu Picchu peak
Trek through levadas and look for the Madeiran long-toed pigeon
Admire the Magellanic penguins in Chilean Patagonia
Watch a sunset at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park in Big Sur, California
Sample Uruguayan wine at a bodega
Visit all of the Provencal markets I possibly can in France
Take Harry Potter tours in England
Climb up Lovcen National Park and Njegos Mausoleum in Montenegro
Enjoy a Guinness in the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland
Play with rescue puppies at Potcake Place in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands
I think that about covers it for me- lots of hiking, mountains with stunning views, good food and drink, beautiful water, and puppies! If you know me, you know this list sums up what I love most in the world (besides running of course, which I can do almost anywhere).
Now to see about actually making some of these places a reality for me!
