My Bucket List


Bucket lists, everyone has one whether its neatly written in a bullet journal or notebook, in the form of some pretty  picture on a Pinterest board, or simply in your head. I have a lot of places I wanted to go, and things I want to do on my bucket list, so I thought I would share them on here!

Back in 2015 I wrote a bucket list post that was specifically for travel, which you can read here if yo'd like. Since then my bucket list has expanded beyond just travel, so for this one I have mine split into 2 categories to keep things organised; Travel and Experiences./To Do.

Travel

In this category are places that I want to travel to, just because I am fascinated with the country and the culture, and want to see what the country has to  off or to visit a specific site!

• Visit The Amazon Rainforest 

I am someone who is super interested on animals and nature, so after watching numerous nature documentaries I have always been fascinated with the rainforest and am dying to visit it!

• See an African safari 

This is one that I have always wanted to do, getting up close and personal with some of the wild animals but still being safe/ I think seeing lions, giraffes, elephants etc up close like that would be incredible.

• American Road Trip •

I have a love the idea of this, just getting a car, a camper van or a bus and driving through the different states, taking in a little bit of what each has to offer!

 See Las Vegas •

This one is pretty obvious right, it's Vegas! I've seen the City of Lights all over TV and movies and I would love to  see in in person. See the casinos and the restaurants, and all the surrounding touristy things! Plus, Nevada is famous for area 51, and I am fascinated with the idea of aliens so...

• Visit Graceland •

This list is in no particular order, because Graceland is the very top of mine in terms of importance. I'm a huge Elvis Presley fan and I would absolutely love to see his home, where he lived and worked and all the memorabilia and even stay at the Graceland Guest House!

 • Egypt & the Pyramids  •

For years I have been really interested in ancient Egypt so I would love to visit the country in person and see some of the Pyramids in Egypt.

• Visit Japan •

Japan has always been interesting to me, and with such a rich culture, great food and so many unique attractions an places to visit, it's a country that I would love to explore.

 • Great Barrier Reef, Australia  •

Australia is a beautiful country all around but I have always wanted to the Great Barrier Reef in particular to see all of the amazing underwater life that tit has to offer!

• Mexico •

Mexico is such a cool country and I would love to visit there someday. I love the culture, and I love Mexican food, plus the country has a lot of really cool places to visit, such as the Mayan Ruins.


Experiences/To Do

In this category are things that are experiences that I want to have and things that I want to do in my life.

• See a musical on Broadway 

I am a huge fan of musicals so for me, this is one of the experiences I would really love to have. I've never had the chance to see a proper on-stage musical  before so I would love to see a proper one on broadway.

• Climb a mountain 

There are a tonne of mountains around the world climb and although I'm not the most sport person in the world, I would love to someday be athletic enough to climb a mountain!

• Run a marathon 

Keeping on the sporty line I would love to someday run a marathon for charity, as I think its not only great exercise of course, but a great way to raise money.

• Tour Alcatraz Island & Prison  

If you know me then you know that I am so interested in true crime and things like that, so I have always wanted to visit a big prison, and of all the ones you can visit Alcatraz is world famous, and just so interesting! 

• Write a book 

In case you couldn't tell, I love writing. I always have loved writing, and I have also loved reading, so one of my goal for a long time now has been to someday in the future write a book. I have no idea what I would write a book about, but I'm sure someday I will figure that out!

• Hogmanay in Edinburgh 

This one is a simple one but it is one I would love to do, because every time I see the Edinburgh Hogmanay celebrations at Edinburgh castle I wish I was there as it looks so much fun and I bet the atmosphere in pron is incredible! There are always so many different celebrations going on on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day that it would be fun to be involved.

• Christmas in New York 

I've seen the classic New York Christmas scene  in countless movies and TV shows and it always looks amazing! The shopping, the attractions and just the general atmosphere looks amazing, so I would love to spend the Christmas season in New York one year!

• Ride in a hot air balloon 

I've always loved the idea of hot air balloons, and while I'm slightly wary of the idea of being however many hundred feet up in the air in just a basket, I still love the idea of it and would love to try it!
• See a solar eclipse 

I have always wanted to see a solar eclipse because I think the concept of the is so cool. The next full solar eclipse for the UK won't be until the 12th of August 2026, so I have some time to wait!


For now this is everything I can think of to add to my bucket list for now, though I'm sure over time I will be adding to it as I find new and exciting places I want to see or things that I would love to do!

Are any of these places or experiences on your bucket list? Have you crossed anything off of your bucket list?
